Oh. This Guy Is So Good!

And you all think I’m rude.

Hell, I are but a silly, flaccid amateur.

Dick Cheney Opens His Maw to AIPAC

Few things in this world are more frightening than the sight of Dick Cheney speaking in front of a group of powerful people, for, indeed, in those moments, we see the Vice President toss off his discomforting Ming the Merciless disguise and reveal the hideous, slithering and undulating ooze that is his real being, the kind of stench-ridden viscosity that’d make Cthulhu say, “Holy fuck, that’s scary.”

No, really. I’m not fooling!

Listen.

I’m typing this from The Other Side.

Because I went and looked at this: Say Goodbye to Yesterday

Join me.

You know you hate life.

Apple rules over here.

Nyahahahaha!


WordPress Woes… Again

March 13, 2007

Aha! It’s not just me! It’s struck someone else too! From the Forums:

Since Sunday (3/11) and continuing this morning (3/12) I have been trying to create a new post. Problems: 1) image disappears after ‘save and continue editing’; 2) new text disappears and old show after ‘save and continue editing’.

This is the first time I’ve had any difficulties with WP. Back-end issue?

A reply:

Yes, I think it’s a data center synching issue. Send in a feedback with specific examples and in the meantime, only post once and assume it’s going to be okay. I believe that once the data centers all catch up it should show up just fine.

Someone else chimes in with that too.

I just had a post disappear on me.

I think I’m (cue spooky music from Bernard Herrmann) being monitored!

I smell… Finns.

After publishing that Disch post, then noticing two sentences were missing, I went back and added the two sentences. I republished it. The sentences were there.

I just looked.

The sentences are gone!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAIEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Oh she is so funny!


WordPress/Firefox Woes Continue

March 13, 2007

Something is still freaky here. That last post about Disch really got mangled and I had to go in and redo it after it was published. Anyone getting that via a feed is probably going WTF?

I might have to unintsall and reinstall Firefox.

I’ve already updated Java.

If this does not end soon I will pull my hair out.

And not just on my head!


Writer Tom Disch Catches On To The Political Scam That’s Been Going On For Over Twenty Years

At Home in Our Police State

I no longer see left and right as political alternatives but simple as the two stones of an all-grinding mill.

Living Information

March 13, 2007

Seated in front of our On-Off digital miracle machines, we forget that information is actually a living thing not confined to the flow of electrons.

Go look at this five-minute embedded YouTube animation of the amazing variety of steps required for the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) to infect a human being.


Reference: Samsung Q1 Accessories

BoxWave Antiglare Screen Protector Review

I always have considered a screen protector a “must have” accessory and at the same time one of the most difficult for me to install even when BoxWave includes a very comprehensive instructions in the back of the package.

ClearTouch Anti-Glare™ – Samsung Q1

ClearTouch Anti-Glare™, the screen protector with the perfect blend of anti-glare and optical clarity. Packed with numerous screen enhancing features, ClearTouch Anti-Glare™ provides your Samsung Q1 with more than just protection from scratches!

ClearTouch Crystal™ – Samsung Q1

Amazing glass-like clarity for your Samsung Q1. With over 99% visual transparency, ClearTouch Crystal™ is the absolute clearest screen protection available for the Samsung Q1. The ClearTouch Crystal™ screen protector is designed for the Samsung Q1 user who demands the ultimate in uninhibited clarity.

FlexiSkin™ – Samsung Q1

BoxWave’s FlexiSkin™ for the Samsung Q1 is an ultra low profile skin case designed for complete usability. Precision constructed with anti-static material, the FlexiSkin™ skin case provides reliable protection from unwanted dust and accidental bumps. It comes in your choice of two colors: Frosted Clear or Jet Black. This lets you customize the color of your device!

Illuminated portable silicone keyboard

With my Samsung Q1P, I like using the Q1 USB keyboard. I realized the other day, though, that those black keys (while lovely to look at) are incredibly difficult to see in low-light situations.

That’s why I’m thinking about buying the $27 USB Illuminated Roll-Up Keyboard.

Review: Samsung Q1 keyboard

If you don’t have a Q1 and the organizer, then this keyboard is not for you. A Bluetooth-enabled foldable keyboard is much better in terms of range, mobility, and compatibility. It’s also similarly priced, as $100 for a wired keyboard like this Samsung one is kind of ridiculous.


Piracy = User-Generated Public Libraries

Microsoft Exec Admits That Company Benefits From Piracy

Jeff Raikes, head of the company’s business group, said at a recent investor conference that while the company is against piracy, if you are going to pirate software, it hopes you pirate Microsoft software.
