12:34:00 AM Order of the PENIX!Quote of the day "In the end, few people are likely to mistake Tanya Grotter for Harry Potter; it is akin to mistaking Burger King for McDonald's."
From the article: Harry Potter and the International Order of Copyright - Should Tanya Grotter and the Magic Double Bass be banned? By Tim Wu. A good read on why its ok to have these spinoff/ripoff books. Who knew it could be a good thing? :)Permalink - Blogger Backlinks - Technorati - Del.icio.us

7:52:00 PM sunday...Sunday...SUNDAY!The Illustrated Catalog Of ACME Products is sure to entertain. I love my new phone, finally moved the office's website to a new web host. Affinity is the company that bought Cybergate, the company that I chose to host my first job's website and coincedentally my family's internet provider at the time. Those were the days of dialup and shell accounts. Ahh. Those were the days.
In any case, I'm really enjoying the new blogger interface, although their "blogthis" feature seems to be a little buggy. I got the Archives working finally!! Hooray! :).
Time to mow the lawn. Yay.Permalink - Blogger Backlinks - Technorati - Del.icio.us

Soap, anyone remember V from back in the day? Well the guy who made the first one is going to be making a new one! That show had ID4 style flying saucers before Will Smith started rapping! Although they weren't city killers like in the movie but instead just very similar in size and visual style.
That show definietly 'disturbed me' as a little kid, both for bad and for good. But I definetly remember it, the part of the show where the alien visitors started peeling off their skin and revealing that they were monsters who wanted to eat the humans was insane.. also there was some sort of 'reprogramming scene' where they had some human standing alone in a room while all the "V"istors watched behind glass, it was very sexual in nature. Very strange stuff. Anyways, the new "3 hour television event" is going to kick ass because its going to be done by the original peeps! Woot!
Mabye they will call it "W" instead to show its sequelness? :)Permalink - Blogger Backlinks - Technorati - Del.icio.us

Wow was just reading the E3 Best of Show awards (Half-Life 2 pretty much ownzored everything), and read about the PS2 EyeToy - a $50 webcam/game you get for your PS2 that "puts YOU in the game" - I saw some screenshots of it, its ridiculous but cool! Here are some videos, allthough I could only get the first one to work so as a concellation here are some good screenshots.
Pretty cool eh? Glad Jon is getting a PS2 now!Permalink - Blogger Backlinks - Technorati - Del.icio.us

"Frankly, I hope the WMDs are found, for it will end the matter. Clearly, the story of the missing WMDs is far from over. And it is too early, of course, to draw conclusions. But it is not too early to explore the relevant issues...To put it bluntly, if Bush has taken Congress and the nation into war based on bogus information, he is cooked. Manipulation or deliberate misuse of national security intelligence data, if proven, could be 'a high crime' under the Constitution's impeachment clause. It would also be a violation of federal criminal law, including the broad federal anti-conspiracy statute, which renders it a felony 'to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose.'"From a very interesting article that sums up all the chatter regarding the WMDs not showing up and revelations about bogus evidence. If the some WMDs aren't found in the next month or so, Bush is gonna have to face a Clinton style witch hunt. I know you got something to say about this damnit. Comment!

Man british people are wacky-- atleast, compared to our lingo and such-- this article about "cheating fruit machines" will tell ya-- I mean, FRUIT machines? Why not SLOT machines? :). Jeeeez. In any case, this really cool website manages to find out that a 'fruit machine' is 'cheating' by using PC emulation software that emulates the real life 'fruit machine' on your computer :) And were not just talking about a simple gambling program, but instead an emulator that actually uses the ROM data to do a true to life emulation. What they find is pretty crazy and makes you realize just how screwed you are when you gamble in Vegas and such. DOH! Permalink - Blogger Backlinks - Technorati - Del.icio.us

Gah-- my wife's computer booted yesterday with
<WINDOWS PATH>\SYSTEM32\HAL.DLL is missing or is corrupt.Hoolllly crap! Doh! I tried recovery console and a bunch of other things but to no avail-- edited the boot.ini file and made sure it pointed to the right place etc. So now I'm reinsalling XP.. fortunatly after rebuilding the boot sector and such it finally saw my old XP install so it will do "rebuild" mode instead of just installing over the old install and losing the old settings! Yay! Permalink - Blogger Backlinks - Technorati - Del.icio.us

This makes you feel good - Keanu Reeves Gives £50 Million To Unsung Heroes Of 'The Matrix' £50 is equivalent of $81.5 million! Bad ass! -- Its going to be split up amongst 29 people giving them each almost $3mill :). He's done similar things before - giving the 12 stuntmen who helped him with a chase scene Harley's and plus his sister has leukaemia and he donates lots of money to cancer foundations and such. Pretty bad ass stuff. Permalink - Blogger Backlinks - Technorati - Del.icio.us

Just read this article: Are You Living in a Computer Simulation? very very interesting.. although I think he totally misses the idea that mabye we *are* the first run of the universe or whatever, that we might *become* that civilization that makes "the matrix" or whatever.. hmm.. good stuff though :).
