Link: I Think I Should Get More Credit for Killing Hitler

A fantastic essay entitled I Think I Should Get More Credit for Killing Hitler, which addresses the issues of what would happen if someone went back and killed Hitler.

I think I should get more credit for killing Hitler. And I know you’re thinking: “Who’s Hitler? I’ve never heard of a guy named Hitler.” But the only reason you’re saying that is because I went back in time and killed him.

Good / quick / funny read.

How to Flawlessly Predict Anything on the Internet

Great article on How to Flawlessly Predict Anything on the Internet.

This is a modern update to a classic confidence game—find a risky scenario with limited possibilities, bet on every single combination, and then hide your failures. The result is that you look like you’re either psychic or a goddamned genius.

Programming Sucks

Programming Sucks is perhaps the most accurate description of working as a real world coder I’ve ever read. It’s the Office Space of text.

Remember that stuff about crazy people and bad code? The internet is that except it’s literally a billion times worse. Websites that are glorified shopping carts with maybe three dynamic pages are maintained by teams of people around the clock, because the truth is everything is breaking all the time, everywhere, for everyone. Right now someone who works for Facebook is getting tens of thousands of error messages and frantically trying to find the problem before the whole charade collapses. There’s a team at a Google office that hasn’t slept in three days. Somewhere there’s a database programmer surrounded by empty Mountain Dew bottles whose husband thinks she’s dead. And if these people stop, the world burns. Most people don’t even know what sysadmins do, but trust me, if they all took a lunch break at the same time they wouldn’t make it to the deli before you ran out of bullets protecting your canned goods from roving bands of mutants.

As a child of the 90s (kinda), seeing Nirvana punking Top of the Pops in 1991 was amazingly awesome.

The band was told that they’d be playing over a track (which is of course what 99% of the “live” performances by big artists these days are), and not being too happy about that that the band basically mocked the whole thing, with Cobain singing in a weird affected voice and the band barely pretending to play their instruments, much less in time with the music.

It’s an epic performance.

When he told his client that she was heading to Hollywood, she looked bored. “She hates movies,” says Mr. Lashes of his client, Grumpy Cat, a cat with a mouth puckered into a frown whose viral photos have ricocheted around the Internet.

Chrome Blink No-BS FAQ

The no-BS version of the Chrome Blink FAQ is just a wee bit incendiary.

While you can certainly read the source code, we’re fully aware that actually tracking and understanding a modern HTML renderer is extremely difficult. In addition, the first changes we will make are intended specifically to break compatibility with WebKit, so the only organisation with sufficient resources to track our changes will no longer be able to do so.

I think it’s a joke, but a bit of a ha ha only serious joke.

UK School Bans Triangle Shaped Flapjacks

Just when you thought that stupid and insane laws were reserved only for the US, my boss pointed out that in the UK, a Canvey Island school has banned triangle shaped flapjacks.

Catering staff at the school have been told only to serve square or rectangular flapjacks. […] A spokesman for the Health and Safety Executive said: “We often come across half-baked decisions taken in the name of health and safety, but this one takes the biscuit.

The fact that they have a ‘three point guide’ to flapjacks as the sidebar, and the article is fraught with puns makes me unconvinced this isn’t an Onion story.

Rep. Gohmert's Record For Stunning Technological Ignorance Is Broken By... Rep. Gohmert

TechDirt reports on how Rep. Gohmert’s Record For Stunning Technological Ignorance Is Broken By… Rep. Gohmert

My goodness. Yesterday we posted about Rep. Louis Gohmert’s incredible, head-shakingly ignorant exchange with lawyer Orin Kerr during a Congressional hearing concerning “hacking” and the CFAA. In that discussion, Gohmert spoke out in favor of being able to “hack back” and destroy the computers of hackers — and grew indignant at the mere suggestion that this might have unintended consequences or lead people to attack the wrong targets. Gohmert thought that such talk was just Kerr trying to protect hackers.

If you’ve ever wondered why laws about computers and technology doesn’t change, take a look at at the article and video and understand this is someone who is in charge, in part, of the US and it’s laws and direction.

XKCD Inspired "StackSort"

Remember when I said that someone was going to implement the “StackSort” from that XKCD? Well, I was right. Here’s stacksort.

As outlined by xkcd’s recent alt text, this site downloads the top answers from StackOverflow for the tags “javascript” and “sort”. If grabs the last code block in the answer (in theory, the “final” example), and tries to determine which function should be called. It proceeds to eval the code from StackOverflow, with the inputted data as the first parameter for the function.

I love the internet.

Interface Hall of Shame - QuickTime 4.0

This entry for QuickTime 4.0 in the Interface Hall of Shame is a great read. From what I see (I don’t remember it myself, or blocked it out) it well and truly deserves to be there.

The application does provide additional means to determine the names of one’s favorite media files, but the user must go somewhere else. The application’s menu bar offers a function labelled “Organize Favorites”, which when selected provides a standard listbox containing the names of the favorites. The listbox allows the user to rename favorites, delete favorites from the list, and reorder items in the list; these functions are notably unavailable from the Favorites Drawer itself. The Organize Favorites dialog is not without its own design problems. Surprisingly, the Organize Favorites dialog does not allow the user to Add favorites to the list, for that, the user has to …go somewhere else.

Anyone who thinks that Apple can do no wrong and has always produced winning software out of the gate that should be a beacon of light to the other doldrums of software out there needs to read this.

Starfish Smartwatch Saga At MacWorld

Great story of how the Starfish smartwatch saga illustrates entrepreneurial stumbling blocks at MacWorld/iWorld this year.

What’s more, the photo in the advertisement appears to defy my own understanding of how such a wristwatch could work: The interface is clearly not just scaled but resized to fit the watch’s square display; it doesn’t match the aspect ratio of either the iPhone 5’s display or that of earlier iPhone models—it looks closer to the sixth-generation iPod nano than anything else. And assuming the AirPlay connection did work and the interface could be resized as shown in the ad, how could the watch be interactive?

It appears Apple’s launch of iTunes music and movies in Russia is running into a bit of controversy with several Russian users noticing advertising for pornography websites and escort services in the iTunes’ movies section. As highlighted in the many tweets below, and reported by local blog iPhones.ru, a section titled “more films in different languages” is displaying the pornographic content. iPhones.ru speculated it might relate to an issue with temporary xxx placeholder links (machine translation):

Great look at The Pointless History of Stylus Advertising: The Worst E-Ink Spots From Samsung, HP, Apple.

Outside magically minimizing files, Stylus pens are often shown circling things and crossing things out. In tons of ads that feature Stylus pens, users are constantly shown looking at an image or a website or some product, and simply using the pen to circle things, point to things, or cross things out. In another ad for the Asus’ Eee slate, for example, a fashion blogger is showing doing all three (0:33): X-ing out one picture, circling another, and then drawing an arrow for good measure.

13 Things a Stand-Up Comedian Won't Tell You

Pretty funny (cause it’s true (or so I assume, cause I read it on the internet)) look at 13 Things a Stand-Up Comedian Won’t Tell You from Reader’s Digest.

  1. The worst audience? Bachelorette parties. The bride-to-be expects the entire evening to be all about her, her, her … and alcohol doesn’t help. Some comics have learned how to give Bridezilla her 30 seconds and move on. But if she’s going to yell “Whoo!” every few seconds—it’s a problem.

5 Things You Need To Know About Brewing Coffee

Great link from my buddy James, of RainGeek fame: 5 things you need to know about that wonder-beverage, coffee. If you read nothing but one paragraph here, read this one:

The smell of coffee makes women more likely to give out their phone number. Anything that gets the adrenaline flowing increases sexual arousal so coffee and a roller coaster might be an excellent date idea. When things get stressful coffee is a good idea for women but not for men. Coffee has also been shown to reduce depression in women. Pregnant women definitely should not drink it. (Alcohol — in modest amounts — during pregnancy can actually be a good thing.)

Not sure if I’m also a cult member or maybe I’ve just grown up and have realized that Mac is good for some things, Linux is good for some things, and Windows is good for some things.

Pizza Hut Middle East Debuts Crusts Made Of Cheeseburgers And Chicken Strips

Looking for something tasty? Testing your immunity to heart attacks? Or maybe have a death wish? Check out the new pizza topping made from cheeseburgers that Pizza Hut Middle East Debuted.

Plain old stuffed crust? That’s so last decade — at least according to Domino’s Pizza. Earlier this year, the chain rolled out a line of “Stuffed Cheesy Bread” that’s full of “cheese, cheese, and more cheese.” In fact, the breads — which come in Spinach and Feta, Bacon and Jalapeño, and plain Cheese — contain as much cheese as an entire medium pizza.

Seriously, that looks like something you get on your way to the electric chair. The greese would probably help conductivity as well.

If you’re 35 years old and you’re thinking about retaking the SAT as a kind of blog stunt, I would highly recommend you avoid it. In fact, I would recommend that no one take the SAT ever. It’s a sternly worded dinosaur of a test, graded in an arbitrary manner with outdated equipment, and it blows. The only reason people take it is because they have to. It exists only so that preppy dipshits can brag about their scores well into adulthood if they did well. I hate it. I hope the Princeton Review gets fucked by a cattle prod.

Great article on Visual Studio 2010 from Ars, relating it to a text adventure game.

Play starts with the spell game. The game has three difficulty modes. In the two easiest modes Visual Studio questers must cast spells to appease a malevolent gatekeeper known only as "the compiler," combining the text adventuring of Zork with the wizardy and magic of Loom. If the player's spell contains even a single faulty incantation, the compiler will respond with a torrent of abuse and spells of its own; the player must piece together clues contained within compiler's response to determine how they went wrong.

Amazon Kindle Fire vs. iPad 2 @ Marco.org

Marco has done it again with an amusing Amazon Kindle Fire vs. iPad 2 comparison chart.

Anyway, the main attraction of Amazon's Kindle Fire vs. iPad 2 page is the big comparison table. Other people's feature-comparison checklists always leave out factors that are important to me, so I made my own additions that Amazon is welcome to include on their page[...]

This is obviously a "fanboy" response to the Kindle, done in (mostly) jest, but demonstrating just how silly feature lists really are, because they really will never show you the real story, but just what whoever is selling you wants the story to be (though, that's basically what marketing is all about).

The Top 6 Alternatives To The Kindle Fire

The Top 6 Alternatives To The Kindle Fire, because a device that's not released yet needs alternatives (and lets be honest, the group of contenders there is more a list of "what isn't the iPad").

As a side note, hows this for the definition of "damning with faint praise":

It's hard to love the Playbook, but if you're a diehard BlackBerry addict and you like a tablet with a smooth OS and great screen, this may be the one for you. Despite Playbook's sad storyline - released too soon, email and calendaring apps that didn't work right, a wonky syncing system - it's a solid device for BlackBerry users.

Looking to Trade my Game 7 Tickets. - $1 (Surrey)

Date: 2011-06-14, 2:25PM PDT

I'm look to trade my tickets for Game 7 with anyone who can bring me Tim Thomas Alive, preferably bound. Not looking to harm him in any way just looking to hold him captive during Game 7. Will release him once the Canucks evidently hold the Stanley Cup.

Tim Arrives in British Columbia today, theres many opportunities to subdue him, I am aware that he likes Japadogs and Archie Comics. Please do not mistake Tim Thomas for Drew Carrie, I have put a picture below to distinquish the two. I do not have any use for Drew Carrie, I don't think anyone does.

Will also include a free Canucks Jersey and Henrik Sedin Bobble Head.

Thank You.

Becoming Batman

Fantastic Quora question and answer: Superheroes: Given our current technology and with the proper training, would it be possible for someone to become Batman?

The genius of Batman is that it pretends to be realistic, it lets us convince ourselves that with enough money and training, we could become Batman, too. But it's still fantasy, it's just a fantasy that is more compelling and convincing and thus more fun.

Argh, my mistake, looks like he's joining the counter-protest, not the protest. Bummer. Course, the Westboro people are some messed up folks who don't need any more encouragement than they have from their current endeavors.

Also I think that Ruby (damn young kids!) should be lower than Perl programmers. Just sayin'.

Kudos to Nicolesy for this great find: Judge Joe Brown & Cheap Wedding Photographers. I'm not sure if His Honor Brown really knows his camera gear or is just repeating what his staff has researched for him, but it's entertaining and surprisingly not dumbed down camera lingo. Well worth the 10 minutes to watch the segment, regardless of your opinion of stupid shows like the "Judge [name]" and it's ilk.

Yet another reason I'm terrified to become a wedding photographer :)

Sure, I watched an episode of "Dancing with the Stars" once but only because I assumed it was a Fred Astaire special and not some collection of motley has-beens lumbering around like injured circus bears.

It was a mistake but I've forgiven myself.

And it's nowhere near as questionable as young people tattooing their scrotums and posting videos of themselves dancing around with lightsabres on youtube. Now that's a demonstration of damned poor judgment. And stupid as Hell, too.

Microsoft Bails on Family Guy Deal

Microsoft bails on sponsored comedy, specifically the deal for the "Windows 7 episode" of Family Guy.


A Microsoft spokeswoman said: 'After reviewing an early version of the variety show, it became clear that the content was not a fit with the Windows brand.'

The obvious question of course is WTF were they thinking they were getting? Did they not bother to watch any Family Guy episodes before making the deal? Guess the $100 million Seinfeld deal is looking better now. I think a new shoe store ad sounds more their speed....

Seriously, if they were to go with the Family Guy episode and show the world that they're OK with laughing at themselves and taking the penis/fart/puke/etc jokes associated with their flagship product, they'd show that the borg actually has a sense of humor about themselves. Unless of course the brilliant marketing department planned this all along and figured they'd get "buzz" by pulling out of the deal.

Ralph Lauren Tries to Take Down Photoshop Disaster

You probably saw the Ralph Lauren Photoshop Disaster a bit ago which was so crazily out of reality that I almost thought it was a farce of itself at first. Turns out Ralph Lauren was serious and serious enough they sent a DCMA takedown notice to the ISP. The article reports:


One of the things that makes Priority Colo so awesome is that they don't automatically act on DMCA takedowns. Instead, they pass them on to us and we talk about whether they pass the giggle-test. This one doesn't.

The Boing Boing article lets it all hang out, DCMA takedown notice and all.

Another fun bug caused the enemy AI to do your work for you. A rogue enemy plane would suddenly reject his mother country and start shooting down his own teammates. That is, until his wings fell off the plane since he was firing his guns. Then he'd kamikaze his plane into the ground, which would launch the plane into outer space that the MicroProse executives probably didn't find nearly as funny as I do.

Predictions for 2000 from 1900

Via reddit. Some of the the year 2000 - from 1900 predictions aren't all that far off actually. Consider that personal airships could be considered small planes (and these days it's not unreasonable for someone to own a little Cessna), undersea tourist boats are part of Disneyland and IIRC West Edmonton Mall, and I've seen them move houses by train on the discovery channel. Hell, the moving pavement is in pretty much all major airports! Of course, the weather control and personal flying machines (assuming these are taken separately from personal airships) were still off. Interesting to see how their ideas were heavily influenced by what was currently "modern". I can only imagine just how completely off our current predictions for the year 2100 will be..

I Love Propaganda - Thanks Microsoft

Here's your laugh for the day... check out Microsoft's Windows Internet Explorer 8: Get the facts comparison page. Don't you love mindless marketing propaganda. The only way that I can see these comparisions being complete and outright lies are some minor wordings put in the comments to explain how Chrome and Firefox don't have security, privacy, web tools, reliability (ha!) and manageability.

This reminds me of talking to someone who has just quit smoking and saying how wonderful they are now, ignoring the legacy of the 2 pack a day habit they left behind (in this case, we call it Internet Explorer 6, still a plague to the web).

The Graphing Calculator Story

A great and classic story somehow I managed to miss.... The Graphing Calculator Story is the story of a guy working inside Apple and building an app while not actually employed.


We looked at each other, took a deep breath, and launched the application. The monitor burst into flames. We calmly carried it outside to avoid setting off smoke detectors, plugged in another monitor, and tried again.
[...]
[My friend's] contract in another division at Apple had just ended, so he told his manager that he would start reporting to me. She didn't ask who I was and let him keep his office and badge. In turn, I told people that I was reporting to him. Since that left no managers in the loop, we had no meetings and could be extremely productive.

Great read, classic net lore stuff.

Latest Wacky Theory.... Time Cubes

Remember a while back a senator in the states quoted, or joined, or had something to do with the flat earth society, which caused a bit of a hubbubb. I read through the main page (don't remember what it is) and was amazed at the wackyness of it all.

Anyway, the latest nutso theory is the Time Cube. It has something to do with a four sided day, or 4 days, one day of a good god and one day of an evil one, or something like that....

Time Cube's ineffable Truth. 'Cubeless Word' is not Truth. Word justifies all human evil. Time Cube is a test for Truth. Circle measure is slop bucket. God belief 50% god disbelief. Truth is 100%, belief is 50%. Time Cube is Truth creation.

WTF?

As with all wacky websites, it's unreadable, a mix of fonts, large font size, lots of colors and italics and is pages and pages long. Don't these people know anything about public relations and how to attract people to actually read their sites? The site that is denounced on the main time cube site is even worse, with a far more vomit inducing color scheme.

MSNBC Journalist Refuses to do Paris Hilton Report

Mika Brzezinski of MNSBC rips Paris report to shreds on live TV, refusing to follow the rest of the so-called news stations showing 24/7 Paris Hilton news. The best part of this is the look of utter frustration and hatred as her producer refuses to change the teleprompter and as the other reporters around her continue to talk about it.

Not sure if it was journalistic integrity or simple frustration with the absolutely inane media circus surrounding the blond celebutard, I'm hoping a little of both.

BTW, Paris is looking fabulous, I heard she had a coffee ordered in, yes, a coffee, not sure what brand, let me get you some stock live video footage of the coffee van pulling up to her mansion, and we'll show it over, and over, and over, and over until you want to nuke her and the "entertainment news" from orbit (it's the only way to be sure).

Worse Than Failure announced the Olympiad of MisGuided Geeks contest, or OMGWTF. Basically you download skeleton code and fill in the TODOs to simple functions and are judged on ugly, buggy, or clever code.

I wish I could enter an ex-girlfriend of mine in this, a drama major who took a level 100 programming class to fill out her electives. I tried to explain stepping through simple programming constructs like loops or if statements, and well, lets just say the way that drama majors and computer geeks brains work is way different :)

"So if the loop starts and i is 0, and in the loop it increments i by 1, what's i when it gets back to the start of the loop?"

"more"

Great story on how Paris Hilton was pwned over on wwttd:


Last September, the story broke that guerilla graffiti artist Banksy had smuggled 500 doctored copies of Paris Hilton's debut album into stores throughout the UK, where they sold without anyone knowing they were fake.

Details include that the CDs were put out with fake linernotes, cover, and even faked music.

A Big "Ooops"

WTF has a scary story about a really bad (and dangerous, and expensive) production failure. My worst? Probably doing an SQL import with some bad characters which resulted in the update of an entire site of content being replaced with one page (ie: something like update pages set content = 'xxx' where id = x;, except that somewhere in the 'xxx' there was a ";" which caused the entire site to be updated). A database restore lost a days worth of design work from the other person working on the project. Luckily a) the site wasn't in production yet and b) the designer had all the pages he had worked on saved and on his desktop so he just needed to cut/paste his work back in.

Personally my limit in a car was a wimpy 160km/h by comparison, and that was at night on a deserted stretch of highway, completely paranoid the entire time that an animal was going to jump in front of me, or I'd pass a speed trap and get that "special" attention from the police officer that you get when you get caught doing something exceptionally stupid :)

    Piracy, the Clear Winner in the HD Disk Format Wars

    A "ha ha true" article on how the HD disk format wars are over and piracy is the clear winner. Can't say that I disagree myself, the "benefits" given by increasing numbers of these new technologies really seems to be just masquerading erosion or usage rights, if you can see through the (sometimes very) thin veneer that's sloshed over it.


    In the mean time, Piracy, the better choice (tm) flourishes. If you take 10 minutes to look around, you will see that every HD movie is now available on P2P networks. I haven't bothered to get one, so I can't comment on the quality, but it sure looks like availability is there. What was an underground clique in the 1980s and 1990s has become mainstream and so vastly much easier to do that it is laughable. Before the technology hits 1% market penetration it is comprehensively cracked and better for the consumer than the legit versions.

    Anyway, even if you don't agree and think that any piracy makes you an evildoer going to hell, it's still an interesting look at things from The Inquirer.

After hearing an interview with Saget on the Stern show revealed this guy is not only a hilarious comic, but nice and dirty as well.

    Star Wars Virgin Report

    No, not that sort of virgin. Contrary to reports, not all Star Wars fans are virgins, or so my friends tell me. Someone who hasn't watched any Star Wars movie ever watches all in narrative order and reports. Must amusing.

    I would have to watch 14 straight hours of Star Wars all night Friday into early Saturday. With my social calendar predictably empty, I decided now would be the time to give up what so many people already have over the last 30 years.
    ...
    With an extra large coffee in hand, I settled in for Episode I: The Phantom Menace. For someone who has never seen a Star Wars movie, it would be easy to criticize them — and Episode I makes it especially easy.

    2. No sleepovers. I think of all women who sleep in bed with me as potential sex partners. I spend all my free time trying to coax women in, so if you get in there, I can’t help but think you want some. If you or I need a place to crash sometime, then we should employ a couch. The breaking of this rule is punishable by instant sex.

    People React to K-Fed's Concert

    (Note: IE only video :( ). Found on Perez Hilton.com a funny video of people being interviewed outside of K-Fed (Britney Spears' Ex for anyone not tapped into the Hollywood buzz like I am) concert. Not sure if this was the concert that they only sold 300 of the 1500 seats and then delayed starting for 3 hours or not, but they do mention that they were giving away tickets. This deflated my "why are you complaining about how he's the worst performer ever when you went to his concert!?!" argument.

    I love celebrity break / melt downs :)

    Update: this goes well with the interview with KFed showing him talking about how great their relationship is, then getting an SMS telling him about the divorce.

    Peace Through Pork

    Peace Through Pork explores how world peace can be achieved by not denying oneself of the lushes crunchy goodness that is bacon (Dead Like Me reference: "triple crispy").


    The core element of "Peace Through Pork" is the offering of delicious, fried, cured, pig flesh to passers by. This is done in front of a banner proclaiming the event in english, arabic and hebrew. The desired result of this situation is to provoke individuals to approach a representative and inquire about either the theory of "Peace Through Pork" or express an interest in eating some bacon.

    This is similar to the idea that Howard Stern had about sending drugs, pornography, alcohol and strippers to the radical states as it seems like a lot less of a good idea to blow up the western world while you're mellowing out on some bud, a beer or three, and have "Angie" shaking her bootie in front of your face :)

    Ah, it is bash.org, or at least, their database. From the frontpage:

    First off, Bash.org sucks... but not their content. They're privately moderated, and not OpenSource, that's not cool. Kwotes is the complete opposite, and excels in more ways than one over Bash.org. It's free and OpenSource, publicly moderated, and 100 times more functional. This site uses Kwotes for those reasons. This database is basically the Bash.org database. Every quote on it (virtually) was taken from the bash.org website.

    Bigger is Better?

    Not to be outdone by sponsored research from Microsoft coming to the conclusion that Microsoft is better/faster/more productive and uses less calories, Apple has recommended that 30" monitors increase worker productivity compared to 17" or 19" monitors. Todd Weiss writes about it here.

    You don't think that it's a coincidence that Apple has some 30" displays? No, couldn't be.

    As an aside I checked out an Apple 30" display in the local Apple store last weekend. Gads the thing was massive, I felt like I'd have to sit on the other side of the room to not have to move my head looking at it. Still a bit pricey for my pocketbook (unless of course you use Scoble Finances, which involves just putting big expensive things on your credit card... :)

    A Letter From Son to Father

    This joke was passed on to me from my buddy Rob F. Probably an old one, still funny though. Hit the read more link to see it....

    Letter To A Dad

    A father passing by his son's bedroom, was astonished to see the bed was nicely made, and everything was picked up. Then, he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed, "Dad."
    With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter, with trembling hands.

    "Dear Dad,

    It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend, because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you. I've been finding real passion with Stacy, and she is so nice, but I knew you
    would not approve of her, because of all her piercing's, tattoos, her tight Motorcycle clothes, and because she is so much older than I am. But it's not only the passion.

    Dad she's pregnant. Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods, and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children. Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't, really hurt anyone.

    We'll be growing it for ourselves, and trading it with the other people in the commune, for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS, so Stacy can get better. She sure deserves it!! Don't worry Dad, I'm 15, and I know how to take care of myself. Someday, I'm sure we'll be back to visit, so you can get to know your grandchildren.

    Love, your son,
    John.

    P.S. Dad, None of the above is true. I'm over at Tommy's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the report card that's in my center desk drawer. I love you! Call when it is safe for me to come home."

    • Sith Apprentice - a take off of The Apprentice, pretty funny.
    • American Jedi - Obi-Wan goes back to high school, absolutely frickin' hilarious.... "slip me your hairy wookie!" Bwahahahahahha!

    Course, nothing beats Troops....

    Thanks dude.

Some of the points in the flash demo are correct (linux's printer support is lacking IMHO), but for the most part it's pretty far off (pretend your filesystem is case sensitive? Huh?

    MSN Toolbar Suite Preview at WinSupersite I love completely unbiased and totally accurate reporst and reviews like this one for the MSN toolbar. Some of the gems:
    Spotlight's biggest claims to fame, presumably, are its near-instant search results and support for document meta data, both of which are, again, planned features of Longhorn. But no matter. While Apple has been busy copping Windows features since Jobs returned to Apple in late 1996, the company's tiny market share ensures that very few people will benefit from Spotlight, despite Apple claims that it will deliver on desktop search a year before Microsoft ships Longhorn.

    Then, in October 2004, Google released a buggy Google Desktop Search beta just two months after the company heard about Microsoft's plans to release a beta MSN desktop search tool by the end of 2004. [...] The most notable feature of Google Desktop Search, so far, has been its widely-publicized security bugs.

    ...

    Maybe you're using the new MSN Search beta to find out information about your favorite musical group. If you search for that band's name, the first link on MSN Search will direct you to MSN Music, from which you can find out more information, or even buy music, which is kind of amazing.
    Anyone tried this? Will it use Firefox if it's the default browser? Will it search firefox browser cache? How does it deal with the security implications that google's desktop search had to deal with? None of these questions, funnily enough, are answered in the review.

    Update: After a few minutes and a download I found the answers. Sort of (sometimes it opens an IE window, sometimes it's firefox), sort of (by default it only searches email and the My Documents folders, but you can tell it to search all folders or specific locations, not sure if it'll recognize the browser cache for what it is), and kinda (see previous answer, I think that it will have the same problems with security as the google solution if you choose to search all files and folders).

    Additionally I notice it's IE toolbar looks a lot like the google toolbar for IE, and the popup blocker has a wack of msn type sites allowed by default, and it also has the ability to automatically fill in form information, including credit card info. Oh, and if this is a beta why is the version number in the 'add remove programs' set as 2.0?

    But go on, drink the kool-aid and know it's the best thing since sliced bread.

    New Medial Revelations About Your Weight My buddy Anthony threw me some information about some new medical revelations about exercise and health. Read on for them. Some new research on regular exercise

    Q: I've heard that cardio vascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?

    A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it...don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your Heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the Life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer?
    Take a nap.

    Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?

    A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system.

    Need grain?
    Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.

    Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?

    A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain.
    Bottoms up!

    Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?

    A: Well, if you have a body and you have body fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.

    Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular Exercise program?

    A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good

    Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?

    A: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!!. Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil.
    In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?

    Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?

    A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.

    Q: Is chocolate bad for me?

    A: Are you crazy? HELLO ...... Cocoa beans ... another vegetable!!! It's the best feel-good food around!

    Q: Is swimming good for your figure?

    A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.

    Q: Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?

    A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape!

    Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets and remember, "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - strawberries in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming - WOO HOO! What a Ride!"

    Woohoo!

    As a friend of mine mentioned it is possible to get 0 errors back from ad-aware by using your computer smartly (not running IE, watching cookies, changing your security zone, not running as admin), but in my opinioin this isn't the way that most "normal" people work. They turn on the computer and use what is available, click on pop ups, click executables that come in email, and are blissfully are hosts to adware, spyware, worms and viruses. The number of worms and crap that float around support this theory :)

    Apple and Microsoft... Lovers vs. Whores Charles Miller over took an amusing look at Microsoft and Apple when asked by someone about buying apple. The Mac is a Harsh Mistress is funny because, well, it's true :)
    Microsoft, ladies and gentlemen, is a cheap whore. She lives on the fringes of the law, but there�s no getting rid of her because she fulfils a certain need in our society. People want what she is selling.

    I have bought more software for my Mac than I ever did for my Windows PCs, most of it shareware. Is it really that much higher quality? Or am I buying her presents?
    Great post :)

    Fox Viewers on Canada Dan pointed out something that gave me a huge laugh this morning. It's more of the fallout from Fox news commentator taking exception to comments from a Canadian newspaper, and the backlash it created from Fox "News" viewers, who wrote into the Canadian paper to show them just how they felt. I've seen stuff on this before, but never saw the letters themselves. They are hilarious. Truely showing... well, I won't go on lest Bill O'Reilly get pissed off at me :) The link has some of the backstory as well. Well worth the read!

    Letters About the Boobage Ah, I love the wacko concervatives in the US. The smoking gun has a nice collection of letters to the FCC about the Janet Jackson Boobage "incident". It notes that most of the email flooded in not on the day of the boob viewing, but later on after concervative groups started screaming for their nipples to be drawn, quartered and put on a pike in town square that the letters came in. Some asking for the singers' (and all news media) imprisonment.

    Ah, gotta love it. Read a few of the letters and you'll see everything from an analysis of the nipple decoration and why it's not something that's worn every day to likening the viewing of a nipple to the end of days. One letter linked above notes that "just a few years ago the word homosexual was an outrage (it was?), and now half the country wants to sanction gay marriage", then matches this up with a nipple today, everyone walking around naked tomorrow. Isn't this the "slippery slope" argument that the fundamentalists are always talking about? Or is that the lefties? Or both? It's a pretty flawed argument anyway. I think that this guy should really take a look at what else is on TV before getting up in an outrage over something he probably only heard about after the fact (my guess). Luckily there are voices of reason in there too: "send [me] the money/resources & I will give it to some poor children who won't be able to eat tonight."

    Erhm... so yea, read the funny letters. Thanks Fark.

    Microsoft on Linux Interesting interview with Martin Taylor, the MS platform manager (as seen on slashdot). My favorite part of the interview was this:
    Security is one of those workloads where Linux is getting traction, partly because we don't have a firewall appliance offering today. We have technologies, but we don't have a lockdown, hardened firewall that we can put in.
    I think I speak for myself when I say that the reason Linux is getting traction in security technologies is that it's proven itself to be stable and secure, whereas Microsoft's track record for security and stability are horrible. That is why I think that Linux is making tracks in the security space.

    Deep Thoughts on Gay Marriage Probably a bit too political, but why not. Some thoughts on gay marriage, which seems to be getting a lot of debate lately for whatever reason. I think gay marriage is legal here in Canada now, or soon will be, though I'm not sure. I do remember some folks from south of here complaining that Canada was a haven for evil, with legalized pot and gay marriage and all that.

    Anyway, for the above link I have to say that #8 is my favorite:

    8. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

    Thank you Tide Just a flood of funny stuff out there this morning. Please read more for a letter passed on from my buddy Jason. It's from a middle-aged housewife to the Tide detergant company.

    Dear Tide:
    I'm writing to say what an excellent product you have! I've used it since the beginning of my married life, when my Mom told me it was the best. Now that I am older and going through menopause, I find it even better!

    In fact, about a month ago, I spilled some red wine on my new white blouse. My unfeeling and uncaring husband started to berate me about how clumsy I was and generally started becoming a pain in the neck. One thing led to another and I ended up with a lot of his blood on my white blouse. I tried to get the stains out using a bargain detergent, but they just wouldn't come out. After a quick trip to the supermarket, I got a bottle of liquid Tide with bleach alternative, and to my surprise and satisfaction, all of the stains came out!

    In fact, the stains came out so well, that some detectives who came by yesterday told me that the DNA tests were negative and my attorney said that I would no longer be considered a suspect!

    I thank you, once again, for having such a great product. Well, gotta go. I have to write a letter to the Hefty bag people...

    Signed,
    A relieved menopausal wife

    An Ode to Internet Users I found this beauty in the midst of a FARK.com comment thingy regarding the "released 6 months after it was discovered" microsoft IE patch. Read on for a great post by pomposity...
    Somebody just might listen to this:

    I hate you.

    I hate you because you use Outlook Express.

    I hate you because you open "those virus attachments" and make the internet suck just a little bit more for the rest of us.

    I hate you because you think you're protected because of that "Norton thingie" in the system tray, even though it cannot catch new viruses.

    I hate you for not using a firewall.

    I hate you for using Internet Explorer and getting infected with spyware.

    I hate you because right now your computer is being used to flood the internet with spam, because that virus gave control of your computer to a spammer.

    I hate you because you don't care.

    I hate you because you pirated that software that secretly contained a trojan.

    I hate you because you don't password your computer. (NEWS FLASH: if you don't use a password, half of the hacker's work is already done.)

    I hate you because you don't realize that as soon as somebody breaks in to your computer, you no longer own it.

    I hate you because you farking purchased a Windows computer and didn't farking bother to secure it.

    I hate you because anybody with sufficient time, money, and workers could take over your computers and cripple networks with flooding.

    I hate you.

    This has been brought to you by the "If you're not going to play any games buy an Apple because it's actually secure by default; and if you already own Windows turn your effing firewall on and get a Mozilla or Opera product instead of using Internet Explorer and Outlook Express (although you can use IE occaisionally if the site doesn't work) and then you should get Spybot Search & Destroy, install it, update it, and remove the spyware on your computer" coalition.

    Why Your Blog Must Die Somewhat serious, somewhat tongue in cheek, Why your Movable Type blog must die is a good article on kuro5hin.org about how the blog-plosion is another sad and stupid fad in the sad continuing tale of the Internet.

    I have to agree a bit. I had my own 'blog' 8 years ago when it was just something for me to write my stuff in and my only readers were my parents and the only reason they read was to see if I was going to be around on the weekend to come by for dinner. Nowadays it's the latest fad, everyone has one, people are pushing them as some sort of innovative way to do office communications, social networking blah blah blah blah.

    I have no doubt that blogs will continue on in some form or another just as diarys and ships logs have for years and years now, but I do think that the current trackback, moblog, blogroll craziness will die out in a while when people realize that (as the article says) "All your blogs talk about the same crap".

    Management Lessons Some funny stuff from my buddy Jason:

    MANAGEMENT COURSE...

    Lesson One:

    An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing. A small rabbit saw the eagle &asked him, "Can I also sit like you &do nothing?" The eagle answered: "Sure, why not." So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle, and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

    Management Lesson?
    "To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up."

    Read on for more....


    Lesson Two:

    A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, "but I haven't got the energy." "Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied the bull. "They're packed with nutrients." The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.

    Management Lesson?
    "BullShit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there."


    Lesson Three:

    A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground in a large field. While it was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on it. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, it began to realize how warm it was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

    Management Lesson?
    1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.
    2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
    3) And when you're in deep shit, it's best to keep your mouth shut!

    Just because NBC's new reality show isn't a Law and Order spin off doesn't mean it's "radically different." In fact, it's a spin off of some of the worst TV I've avoided this decade. Though I'm sure the fact that the show features you has nothing to do with your opinion.

    Love, Alan


    Dear TV Producers and Executives from the major networks,

    Please stop creating reality shows. They are over done. You have had reality shows, reality shows that were parodies of reality shows, fake reality shows, fake reality shows the second season, fake reality shows that are aired twice in a row with the schmoe's commentary in a transparent attempt to bleed it for all it's got, rip offs of reality shows, and reality shows that require subtitles and still suck.

    Please stop. We the people of north america can't take anymore. Saying that "the market is driving this" doesn't cut it when you give the market nothing to watch but shitty reality shows. Complaining about how people are pirating other TV shows that don't suck via p2p networks shows you have no clue.

    Please stop and let reality television go down as a footnote on the stupidity of mankind at the start of the decade in some future history book. Please.

    Love, Alan

    Dumbest Anti-Spam Idea Ever I'm not sure if this is funny or sad, but check this out. It appears that someone thinks that you should all have an email address that has your postal code (or PIN #, matched to postal code, held by a commisioners office). I'm sure that would work. Really. Link from this fark discussion.

    MS Fan Site An article in siliconvalley.com asks if the Microsoft User Network is a joke or not. Apparently it's not. It's a less hidden version of astroturfing I guess. Last time I checked though, "fan sites" felt a little bit more honest and real, and didn't look like they were organized by the company they are a fan of.

    The Unofficial Bill Gates Fan Network is particularily amusing though. Their photo gallery is strangely missing this picture though. Strange.

    I'm shaking my head, I still can't get it. There are similar things in the open source world, but they seem to be far more tounge in cheek. To each their own though I guess...

    How to Tell if You've Grown Up 25 signs you've "grown up" makes me realize just how much I wish I hadn't :) My favorite is of course:
    18. You realize that you will never have as many dogs or cats in your life that you want.

    Cartoons For a Monday A couple of things that made me laugh my ass off this morning. The first is of course, our own userfriendly (to explain a bit further you have to read at least this previous strip from the current storyline). The next (and I know it's blasphemy) is todays Penny Arcade.

    Working with a bunch of mac-heads just drives this one home for me :) Well, that and waiting in eager anticipation of the new 15" powerbook which is coming any day now, yup, it's ordered, requests
