I have been a Netflix customer for a long time. I’m so glad they decided to keep “partitioned accounts” after announcing they were going to get rid of them.

I’ve said this for a long time, but my audience is very small, so I’m glad someone with a bigger audience agrees (video below). I’m not ripping off artists if I download their works for free. I don’t think (m)any are. The way I look at it, I give as much as I can. Does […]
ps.mu IEC5010 (noise) Music A project from more than a few years ago finally surfaces on the web.
The bit about being inspired by those artists that step before you was interesting, but I’m glad to see Francis Ford Coppola pondering the same idea (of artists making a living) I wrote about a couple years ago: Francis Ford Coppola On Art, Copying And File Sharing: We Want You To Take From Us … […]

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.
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 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 […]
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!
Tiny Laptops For Fresno Grade School Kids — I think that we do need OLPC for US kids The White Continent — Beautiful The Mainstreaming of Atheism — Sunday School for Atheists — good luck being respected for your beliefs in the US if you’re atheist … Philip Pullman’s trilogy is being banned from public […]
I don’t know if the MOZ_NO_REMOTE workaround is still necessary for Firefox 2.0, but I do know I’m at the point where I want to run multiple Firefox profiles at the same time.
