First if you only check out one thing, check this out, they interviewed Ask Jeeves the search engine... its hilarious :)
It has been revealed that even DVD player manufacturers don't like copy protection (check that one out, very cool secret back door to a DVD Player that lets you turn off copy protection, with screen shots "You should not be here" etc)
Toilet seat argument ends in murder! (Its sad, I know..)
Too bad the multi-tasking demons don't use windows.. mabye they would blue screen
Speaking of Blue-screen, remember that broken link I had about that billboard blue screening (plus a little embelishment about it being an ad for windows 2000)? Well, apparently you guys hit the broken link enough times to bring the attention of the guy behind the site hosting the pic, he sent me (my very first Walter's Weblog talk smak message!) the correct link, and told me the picture is from Melbourne Australia! See for yourself how funny this is.. reminds of the time I was at disneyquest and the 3 story tall pinball game screen blue screened... thats what they get, and these guys too [NTK] :P
Muslems are using cell phones to recieve the call to prayer.. mabye they are using iPING.
I swear I'll update more.. or something.. in the meanwhile, why don't you register your own domain name for free @namezero.com I got celerity.org woo, or you can find the cheapest toothbrush in your zipcode at shoppinglist.com of coures, nothing beats free long distance at i-link.com too bad its always too busy... anyways later

Raquyda Nichole Harris (who was duct taped to a wall as a child) was arrested for maliciously cutting another girls hair. Apparently angry over the little girl replacing calculators used on the FCAT with faulty calculators.
Microsoft unviels its latest advertisement, a copy of
automatically on a billboard. (Link no longer exists, it was a pic of a
times square display that had blue screened heheh).
The full extent to which mp3s have devestated the recording industry has finally been realized.

Being that I never actually heard a decent impression of a chicken bock, I think its safe to say that the "Find Leap Frog!" contest was of the submit an entry into a drawing type and stuff... Still, Leap Frog was awesome... mabye not as awesome as making pea-shooters in my 2nd grade english class (I can't remember the awesome teachers name :( ), and mabye still not as awesome as being a patrol for Coach Nelson (even though I got demoted from Seargent status for abusing my whistle privelges), but Leap Frog certainly is pert'nant to the whole Leap Year thing and dammit you don't have a choice so just quit your belly aching! Ohh you were complaining about that "I'm the lepre-cauhn" picture.. ok its gone... :)... "Evil says word to your mother... peace."

We open with a shocking discovery, "GM plants will someday help us live on mars!" reports a british newspaper. General Motors was unavailable for comment, but I think taking the company in the direction of space transportation is a bit early, don't you agree? ... Open then shut then reopen: Windows Source code, to be opened if that was all it took for the DOJ to get off of Microsoft's back. Just in case that doesn't work Microsoft has (with the help of ex-borg spokesperson Patrick Stewart) launched windows2k as a self defense mechanism against the DOJ. "Our hope is that [the doj] will install windows 2000 [and it will crash their computers]." .... Apparently rap artist Coolio is responsible for the DOS attacks last week on websites Yahoo.com, ZDNet, and WalterElly.com. Coolio was quoted as saying "...attacking WalterElly.com was a mistake, if I had only chosen not to bother that amazing website, I wouldn't have been caught!" citing the fact that WalterElly.com produced the evidence that lead to his capture. Boy were we pissed when our webservers booted up to MSDOS... god, it was as if we entered a time machine. ... Yahoo reports on their exclusive Royal Watch news site, that royal Camilla was flattened by tornados! ... research shows that goliath really didn't have a chance against david ... We may be treated to a simpsons movie yay! ... and finally we end with a quote for the day: "XML sounds scary. Stuff that begins with the letter X usually does. There's a reason they didn't call it 'The C Files.'"

Hey kiddies, this is Walter reporting to you from the MIR Spacestation-Hotel! First off, Hillary Clinton, while eating on the newly photographed Eros Asteroid, DID NOT leave a tip for her waitress team! Kinda scary Hillary, only been in New York for a month and your already acting like a local! AOL reveals its true reason for puchasing Time Warner: AOLSI: Swim Suit Edition! Here's a gem from 1996 The Internet will crash in 1996!, and another crack smoking link, fun george w. quotes to use against g-dub fans! (You gotta go to that link, it compares Washington D.C.s area code to G-dubs.. its hilarious). I close with the quote of the day
"There are these premade programs out there that can do this [DOS]
stuff. People who use these programs are called script-kiddies,
they just take the programs as is and use them without having any working
knowledge of what the program is doing exactly."
-Some herb on CNN Newstand at like 2am.
This is Walter for Walter's Weblog reporting live from the MIR Spacestation-Hotel.

Things we've learned...Smith College shouldn't switch to peoplesoft cos it breaks universities unlike the current software they are running now (cough cough). Slashdot is slow as balls when it comes to reporting stories.. this time they missed out on the oh so important quake wedding (which we reported 5 days ago!). Don't ever sign on the dotted line to become the insurer for furnishing prize money on a show called "Who wants to be a millionaire?" Stealing CDs shouldn't be a crime anymore now that we have MP3s. When you can't beat em, join em. Atleast thats what AOL did. "We want to let cablemodem users have a choice! They should be able to choose AOL." But then AOL buys TW, and stops their litigation. Does this seem similar to AOL's purchase of ICQ? MSN is sueing AOL in order for AOL to open their Instant Messenger network to other clients, I'm sure AOL forsaw ICQ suign AOL to open the network too... will AOL buy MSN in the future? When will the DOJ put the smack down on AOL?! Will the TLAs ever S T O P!?!?!??!?! And finally, IRCnews reports that an IRCuser actually connected to the net simply to check his email(!). Wheee!

Al Gore drink so much Iced Tea that a teacher in Montgomery, Alabama decided to not let him use the restroom. "If he drank all that iced tea, he needs to face the consequences." Apparently, the teacher wouldn't be such a tight-ass if he had perhaps read one of these books. Mabye its cos we caught him with silly website messup....Life imitates the onion: http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/health/newsid_625000/625846.stm vs http://www.theonion.com/onion3511/college_drinking.html ...Ouch, not that I'm bitter...You thought your irc channel was interesting...heh...

Jim Varney, passed away today... Ernest Saves Christmas was one of my favorites... this update dedicated to the memory of Jim Varney, creator of one of my favorite characters, Ernest. (and for creating alot of confusion when hearing about the book, The Importance of Being Ernest)

Fortunately, our ISP fixed the problem and also found a backup copy of this page, so no harm no fowl.. except that this update was a little later than planned because of the whole MS-DOS being on the RS6000s at Cybergate thing. Oh yeah, Forbes dropped out of the race, NASA's Spaceprobe NEAR will rendezvous with the asteroid 433 Eros on Valentines Day.. the NASA people titled their press release "To Eros or bust!".. heh.. Valentines day, Eros, bust, probing an asteroid... heh.. get it? yeah, those NASA people sure are funny..ok I'm outtie for a Business Law test. later
UPDATE:Check this out... a couple plans to get married in Quake2 on Valentines day... The website is pretty brief, leaving out some important details: Are they going to throw a grenade instead of a bouqet? Will the priest/rabbi/clergyperson have "God mode" on? Instead of the newly-weds having the first dance, will they have the first deathmatch? etc.... :P

A Y2K problem carved in stone... "Henry Bohne, son of Ella Bohne, who with her husband bought a tombstone in the mid-1960s. The engraver carved "19" for their dates of death. Her husband died in 1971, but Ms. Bohne is very much alive at 97." .. DOH! As if that wasn't enough to stop them, scientists are trying to artificially create Y2K. Heh.
Export controls relaxed - thats right international viewers, and for those who don't have an IP that resolves into a domain name, come get some PGP, or a strong-encryption version of nutscrape..Too bad they don't unrelax and strangle Doubleclick
Anyways, thats the news.. oh yeah next time someone says to you "Look at the beautiful snow falling on the lake, etc" just point them to this story... apparently snowflakes aren't the nicest thing to hear underwater...until next time!

Unrest amongst the canidates!
Bill Bradley has been really pissed lately and Gary Bauer even quit over the fact that neither of them will be getting one of those nifty 500mhz celeron HP Pavillion's that FORD is giving away to all of its 350,000 employees, with the option of $5/month unlimited internet access. Sounds like EX-CIA director John Deutch could have used that $5/month access to continue to check out porn!. In other news, RUSSIA plans on testing out new inflatable space craft using some excess children from a mother who just had her second set of triplets in 20 months!. Damn! Anyways, I'm serious about that nothingradio.net stuff.. oh, and soon I will have scans up of the next place I plan on living at. Annd here are those Universal Studios pictures I promised a while back... later

The groundhog pussed out and now were doomed for more winter! I guess its because, according to /., "Today is the first day since Dec. 28, 888 (12-28-888) to have only even digits in its numerical format (02-02-2000)." Other than that, nothings really going on.. at all.... I'm serious... heh. Anyways until next time
