Prediction: YouTube/Google Drop Flash Video

March 8, 2007

And I mean “drop” in the damned traditional sense: discontinue. Not the fake-ghetto suburban-white-boy Eminem-hip-hop bass-ackward sense of “introduce.”

They’ll go with H.264.


Steve Jobs wants to conquer all of video too: The Great Apple Video Encoder Attack of 2007: Cupertino plans to add H.264 hardware support to its entire line.

WordPress Meltdown?

March 8, 2007

Was out on a mini tech fondle tour.

I noticed this blog’s template looked like crazed shit via IE and Safari. I can’t account for that except it had to be a WordPress problem.

Things look fine now…

WordPress: The Horror!

This is the second day WordPress is winding me up. My god, the amount of retakes in the prior post was incredible. Save wouldn’t Save what I had edited! And bits went missing in the headline again. What’s up with this?!

Comedy actor Inman dies aged 71

Actor John Inman, most famous for the comedy Are You Being Served?, has died in London aged 71, his spokesman said.

He was so funny! Here was a man (who I guess is now confirmed as being gay in his private life, according to the obit’s final paragraph) who portrayed an openly gay man in a comedy and we loved him. There was, at least in the many episodes I saw (I’ve never seen the entire series), never any mention of the character in fact being gay. It was taken for granted. And he acted openly gay. In one episode, he dressed in a sailor’s uniform to go welcome the fleet coming in! (Or should that be coming out?) Here in America we get screeching miltancy in our shitcoms, shoving a point of view down our throats (no pun intended) like a bad medicine. In England, they simply showed it and left it at that. And it worked!

There Is A Righteous Rage

March 8, 2007

Caught on camera
The CCTV footage of a police officer laying into a slightly built young woman shook my senses to the core.

A reader’s comment:

Another drunk and disorderly goes looking for trouble and finds it. Forgive my heart for not bleeding and my conscience for not caring.

I agree!

Were They High When They Wrote This Shit?

Illegal drugs can be harmless, report says

Illegal drugs can be “harmless” and should no longer be “demonised”, a wide-ranging two-year study concluded today.

The report said Britain’s drug laws were “not fit for purpose” and should be torn up in favour of a system which recognised that drinking and smoking could cause more harm.

I’d like to know how many of the people involved in this are past — or even current — users of illegal drugs.

I used to be for the legalization of pot, but not anymore. I live in an area filled with degenerate behavior. It turns out pot is the preferred relaxant. I never heard the fucking word blunt until I wound up here. That accounts for the disgusting behavior I encounter daily. Brains turned to shit, people who act like shit. Cigar sales boom here. Will the assholes who authored this report classify those cigar sales under smoking?

My rule of thumb: If it happens in England, it’ll happen here too.
