Apologies about Galleries/Movies
BTW, I want to apologize to everyone about the fact that the Galleries and Movies sections don’t work.  (Actually, they do work in a roundabout sort of way, but it requires you to fudge with the :URL:s and that just ain’t cool.)  I switched the …

The… Nicotini??
Oh my… what in the world will people think of next?  In an effort to help smokers cope with the new smoke-free environment dicated in Florida, one nightclub is now offering a nicotine-laced drink, the Nicotini.  “Soak tobacco leaves in vodka overnight, deaden the juice’s …

Boneless Stalker
This one’s just, well, weird.  It’s a Flash animation where a “boneless man” follows your cursor around the browser window.  Nothing really to it beyond that.  It’s rather pointless, but at the same time it’s kind of fun to play around with.  Worth a couple …

Damn, Too Busy
BTW, I’m back from my mini-vacation.  Had a wonderful time and got to see/meet a lot of great friends.  Can’t say I got much sleep, either, but I’m more or less back to normal now.  Which is to say, perpetually a little bit tired. Anyway, …

Notice of Absence
For those few of you who stop by here regularly: I’m going to be out of town and thus not blogging starting tomorrow.  Or, rather today, Wednesday July 23.  I’ll be back sometime mid-day Monday July 28.  So, don’t expect any new posts during that …

Don’t Wear a Button!
I’m not a political person.  In fact, I pretty much hate politics and avoid the whole subject whenever possible.  And, in fact, this really isn’t about politics.  Whatever. John Gillmore, who’s fairly well-known in the online/weblogging community was recently removed from a plane.  “For what?”, …

PVRblog
Matt Haughey (whose name, every time I see it, makes me think of my great friend Mike Haughey…) appears to have a new weblog up about PVRs such as TiVo.  As a very satisfied TiVo user myself, I think I’ll be following this site with …

“Digging for Googleholes” is Crap
An article was posted yesterday on Slate pushing the idea that, while Google is great for searching overall, there are three glaring ways in which it fails.  That’s crap. Type in the make and model of a new DVD player, and you’ll get dozens of …

Mozilla Takes Off On Its Own
That post about the Browser Wars yesterday now seems rather prescient…  Word comes in now that Mozilla and :AOL: have officially broken ties.  Mozilla has now established the Mozilla Foundation, which will be more of a coordinating body for the development of the Mozilla platform. …

Cardboard Showdown
Cardboard Showdown. Word. (For those of you not in the know, it’s referring to the Cardboard Tube Samurai character from Penny-Arcade.  If you don’t read PA, you should.  It’s funny.  Very funny.  Oh, and apparently I’m Tycho and Derek is Gabe.  Or something.) …

Browser Wars II: The Saga Continues
Evolt has a very intriguing article up about the new browser wars.  Or rather, “Browser Wars II”.  The first Browser War was, of course, Netscape vs. :IE: and we all know how that ended: IE trounced Netscape and eventually we all came to be grateful …

U.S. Keeper Joining Man U.
It’s official.  Manchester United has signed Tim Howard, a U.S. goalkeeper.  Howard played with MLS’s MetroStars and has also made nine appearances with the U.S. national team.  It’s great to see this happening since it lends even more credibility to the U.S. soccer program, which …

pMachine admin vs. DM?
Hmm… Well, I’m rather at a loss for words here.  As many of you know, I help with :pmachine: doing tech support, documentation, etc.  I was going through the forums this evening and I came across this thread titled pMachine admin vs. DM?.  Being well …

Site Updated
Bit of an announcement post.  First, the weblog’s been updated (finally) to pMachine version 2.3.  The most noticeable change you’ll see is that the site now uses “search engine-friendly :URL:s”.  Basically, instead of seeing something like “comments.php?id=P464_0_1_0” in the URL, you’ll now see “comments/P464_0_1_0/”.  A …

Sue All The World
From the creator of the catch phrase “Napster Bad!!”...  from the people who brought us “MetalliCops”...  comes a new cartoon of incredible scope and veracity… Sue All the World! Or something like that.  Yes, I realize the above is cheesy beyond belief and really lame.  …

Musical Personalities
Aparently, the music we listen to reflects our underlying personality.  Or, so says a study by Univeristy of Texas psychologists.  Sounds fairly plausible. So, loyal readers, how well does it work?  The last four albums I bought were by Linkin Park, Disturbed, Chevelle, and Pearl …

Honda ‘Cog’ Parody
I wrote a while back about the Cog ad put out by Honda (though not shown here in the US).  It’s a wonderful 2 minute real-life rube goldberg machine in action. Anyway, someone has gone and made a parody of that ad.  This one is …

I’ll Make the Sacrifice
Keira Knightley, star of the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie apparently never gets hit on while on the set.  Well, I guess if I have to, I can make the supreme sacrifice of going out with her.  And no, I don’t care if she …

SAproxy: Spam Protection
This month’s Consumer Reports issue has a report about Spam and what to do to stop it.  On my old computer I had a monster set of filters in Eudora to help funnel spam into a separate folder.  The filter list was so big that …
