I realize it’s more complicated, historically, than these “sound bites,” but the campaign is on the right track: New FFRF Bus Sign Campaign “America is NOT a Christian Nation”
I realized if I (ha ha) ever wanted to go mainstream, I’ll have to rename this site. Changing “piss” to “put” would be easy enough.
OMG, it’s been six months since I posted. Too, too busy. I got this in the mail this week: The cards says: Dear EarthLink Internet Cable Service Powered by Comcast customer: Effective July 1, 2010 the terms of service for the EarthLink Internet Cable Service Powered by Comcast service will be changed to include a […]
I want backup software that does incremental backups at the file level. It might waste more space, but it would be easier to retrieve lost files. It should make a folder for each date-time (YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS) it finds a changed file (continuous backup). It should just store complete files (not a single giant backup file). It […]
I’ve now paid for VMWare Fusion 2 and for an upgrade to 3. It seems the upgrade added a few minor new features. It mostly seemed like bug fixes (like making Windows 7 work properly). Two big bugs that haven’t been fixed are the problem that Ubuntu’s visual effects won’t work, and when you mouse […]
I cannot wait until the day I never have to watch etrade baby commercials ever again. Makes me want to swear to express how blanking stupid the commercials are. I can’t even give a critique. They’re just stupid. So stupid they’ve lost my business. (note to self) Remember: never do business with them.
In my iPhone Features Sunday, post on February 22nd, 2009, I gave a list of my top choices. I have to say, I think that they’re past the point of pushing normal users to jailbreak their iPhones. I have no need to jailbreak, but I do like that there’s a way to make sure my […]
I think that we’d end up with a healthier economy if we’d simplify the tax code to just one law. It should simply be: For any sale by an American (or American Company), the local government gets X percent, the state government gets X percent, and the federal government gets X percent. That way the […]
My yard is larger than an average suburban yard. I tried a gas powered weed wacker (line trimmer), but it was overkill. I just got the Black & Decker GH1000, and it works quite well, considering it’s one of the most miserable kinds of tools to use. I followed consumer reports’s suggestion, and though CS […]
I recently got an iPhone and I have found that there are many features at iPhone Features (petitions) that I would really like. The great part is all you need to provide is your Name, City, and Country — Email Address and Comments are optional. Here are some of my top choices: iPhone Play nice […]
If you make your living off of performing arts (or ads or coding) then you may find that at some time you’ll need to get a day job to support your love of this activity. If you can’t find a patron or community to support you, then don’t expect to succeed at forcing anyone else […]
I really liked Dvorak’s idea to let everyone know about little known software. I’m recommending Filezilla. It does FTP, but it also does file transfer over SSH which means your file transfers cannot be snooped.
(note: This is the 2nd time Netflix has listened to its customers to reverse a decision, and the FAQ has not yet been updated) At 16:13 CDT I was pleased to receive this in my email: We Are Keeping Netflix Profiles Dear Zakhar, You spoke, and we listened. We are keeping Profiles. Thank you for […]
Digg needs to have a feature to cloud articles together around a topic or event, plus a way to vote for which story is the lead story in the cloud of stories.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resistentialism Resistentialism is a jocular theory in which inanimate objects display hostile desires towards human beings. Thank goodness I know the word for this now!
I really can’t stand software that makes me save all the time. I like the Save As… feature, but mostly so I can set a bookmark of revision (or to make sure I have a revert avenue after any layout or file corruption). I love how Jeff Johnson describes Save: One concept that developers often […]
