so he doesn't exist.

joking not crazy if anyone reads this.
Galt: "You want me to be Economic Dictator?"

Mr. Thompson: "Yes!"

"And you'll obey any order I give?"


"Then start by Reading Atlas Shrugged."

"Oh no!" screamed Mr. Thompson, leaping to his feet. "I couldn't do that . . . How would I get through those long winded parts?"

"Read Them."

"Oh, no!"
We had two bags of RJ45 connectors, seventy-five sticks of ram, five RU of high-powered rackmount servers, a saltshaker half-full of jumpers, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored imacs... Also, a quart of tequila, a tb of porn, a case of hard drives, a gigabit switch, and two dozen usb mice. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get into locked a serious CJ collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can. The only thing that really worried me was the gigabit switch. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an LAN party, and I knew we'd get into that rotten stuff pretty soon.

How long could we maintain? I wondered. How long until one of us starts raving and jabbering at this list? What will they think then? This same lonely basement was the last known home of the Smith's kid; will they make that grim connection when my attorney starts screaming about macs and huge penises coming down on the car? If so, well, we'll just have to cut his head off and bury him somewhere, 'cause it goes without saying that we can't turn him loose. He'd report us at once to some kind of netnanny law enforcement agency and they'll firewall us down like dogs. Jesus, did I say that? Or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me?

Panic. It crept up my spine like first rising vibes of a zerg rush. There I was. Alone in Las Vegas, completely twisted on bawls, no cash, no story for the blog, and on top of everything else, a gigantic god damned wireless bill to deal with. How would Horatio Alger handle this situation?

I want you to understand that this man at the wheel is my ircop. He's not just some hacker I found at defcon, man. He's a foreigner. I think he's probably Romanian. But that doesn't matter, though, does it? Are you prejudiced?

Know your CJ. You will not be able to see his eyes because of retina burn, but his knuckles will be white from aspergers and his pants will be crusted with semen from constantly jacking off when his parents go out to shop groceries.

Hey honkies. You folks wanna buy some wireless? Goddamnit, I'm serious. All I'm trying to sell you is some pure fucking unmetered 54mbit wireless! This is the real stuff! You might get hooked on WoW. I just got back from a gamer convention. Ahahaha... scag! Pbbbbbbb... I wanna sell you some pure fucking wireless internet... pure... fuck...

My attorney had never been able to accept the notion, often espoused by former gamers, that you can level a lot higher without bots than with them, and neither have I for that matter.

Know your WoW fiend. You will not be able to see his eyes because of tea shades, but his knuckles will be white from inner tension and his pants will be crusted with semen from constantly jacking off when he finds a night elf.

The bawls was wearing off. The mountain dew was long gone. But the raid was running strong. Good raids come on slow. The first hour is all waiting. Then about halfway through the second hour, you start cursing the creep who buffed you because its almost gone. And then - ZANG!

We are all wired into a survival trip now. No more of the speed that fueled that LANs. That was the fatal flaw in Linus Torvald's code. He crashed computers around America selling "free software" without ever giving a thought to the grim meat-hook realities that were lying in wait for all the people who took him seriously... All those pathetically eager GNU junkies who thought they could download Peace and Understanding at a few megabits per second. But their loss and failure is ours too. What Torvalds took down with him was the central illusion of a whole life-style that he helped create... a generation of free Unix users, neckbeards, who never understood the essential old-mystic fallacy of the free software movment: the desperate assumption that somebody... or at least some force - is managing all of these users.
Trackbacks seems like they aren't being exploited fully, by people who would do such a thing.

As I understand it Andrew Sullivan gets thousands of hits daily and I hardly see his trackback thing at anything other than 0. Surely some people would click on it. Maybe it is broken.

How to Open up the Political Process to Third Parties and Remove some Negative Ads.

I don't think trying to place artificial limits on campaign ads is going to work to clean up politics. There is always a loophole to get around these barriers, always a third party ready to smear on a candidates behalf. I approve this message has been a failure at cleaning up politics.

How about a new course, a change to the system that will help the Green and Libertarians gain some clout while encouraging more positive ads. Let voters cast negative votes against a candidate. When you go into the voting booth you can vote for someone, or against someone. A against vote will subtract one vote from a candidate, a for vote will ad one. In theory you could a person running come out with a negative vote count at the end.

This will clean things up because if one Republican smears his Democratic opponent too much people will no longer vote for the Republican, they will vote against the Democratic candidate. Meanwhile the Democratic candidates voters might be upset over the negative ads and vote against the Republican to punish him. This makes the outer parties more competitive with less votes, because they don't attract the negative as well as positive attention.

Suckers ruin the world for the rest of us

This Gizmodo post is getting rave reviews from all over the net. Oddly enough its a post attacking the readers of the site for being sheep who jump on the newest shiniest crap at the detriment to everyone else.
Stop buying this crap. Just stop it. You don't need it. Wait a year until the
reviews come out and the other suckers too addicted to having the very
and greatest buy it, put up a review, and have moved on to something
else. Stop
buying broken products and then shrugging your shoulders when it
doesn't do what
it is supposed to. Stop buying products that serve any other
master than
Weird that I never thought about electronic things like this. Maybe because I am poor and don't buy the newest shiny toy very often. I do see alot of truth in his post as it relates to another industry, computer software, specifically video games, but its applicable to most of the others . I have given up games for 2-3 years now and it wasn't out of frustration with the quality, it was that they had become to much of a time sink and I wanted to focus on finishing college (The horror I might be considered a grown up now)

I put in my time playing video games so I can say with confidence everything Joel Johnson writes gadgets is applicable to them. People constantly bought into the hype and bought games that were frankly unplayable. And the game websites played along writing false positive reviews and hyping based off press releases

A good example of this is Masters Of Orion 3. Now this game was broken, you could win by just pressing the next turn button. The AI would never attack your planets, ever. The game revolved around playing with 100s of spreadsheets of data all of which made no sense and was not fun at all. Calling it a game is being generous.

So what did reviews look like? IGN gave it a 9.2/10 saying "It's been a long time coming, but well worth the wait." Here is a round up of reviews, notice how only about 3 of the 25 reviews are low scoring. I need to stress this is not a subjective what is fun for some isn't fun for others problem. One of the decent reviews is from (notice this sites focus isnt' videogames, most likely why an honest review came out of them)

The only thing worse than the interface seems to be the weak AI, which
makes questionable decisions to say the least. It's not all that uncommon for an
AI fleet to park a task force within one of your undefended systems, then sit
there, not taking advantage of its clear superiority. Instead, it will simply
wait for you to either build up a fleet or move a fleet in and destroy it. I
tried playing games across all difficulty settings, and I was never able to
determine any differences between the easiest and hardest levels of AI. Quite
simply, the AI is incompetent on all levels and at any setting. In fact I think
a player would be hard-pressed to lose a game, as the AI is simply too inept to
offer any challenge. For what is primarily a game meant as a single player
experience this is a glaring flaw in the gameplay, stripping any and all joy
from a victory over the AI.

As I stated before you could win by simply clicking next turn.

Now I really liked the first 2 Masters of Orion games and I would have liked to have played a well crafted sequel. I will never get that chance because the failure of MOO3 has killed the series. But if these suckers who rushed in without pausing to throw their money on the fire didn't exist the game companies would never have put out such a shoddy product. They would have either fixed it or not put it out at all. These fools damage all of us.

So Gadgeteers at least take comfort in the fact you are not alone. The schmucks who rush out to buy games hurt all game players who wanted quality products, and it doesn't look like getting kicked in the balls repeatedly for doing so is going to stop them. So I don't think reason and logic is going to help now

Fox News Struggles to stay Relevant

If the clips are any indication the Half Hour News Hour, Fox's answer to the Daily Show is going to bomb. The horrid laugh track, lame jokes, uninventive set ups. Maybe this is how Conservatives felt about Air America. Three clips have been leaked so far

Tina Fey is one mean girl

at the Writer's Guild Awards Sunday evening, Tina Fey teased Aaron Sorkin about the criticism he's been receiving for the lack of comedy in his behind-the-scenes look at a fictional network sketch comedy show (in the spirit of SNL), by jokingly stating:"I hear Aaron Sorkin is in Los Angeles
wearing the same dress - but longer, and not funny."


I hope to start posting multiple times a day (hopefully) so tell your friends to come on by. And feel free to grab google pack its really useful ;)
Ewwww. Seriously ick. A river of sewage in Iraq visible on Google Earth.
Remember the SOTU address hoo-aa over the Democratic party being called the democrat party. He called it was an accidental slip of the tongue.

Well here are some 2/14 press conference quotes
And I would like to work with the Democrat leadership as well as, obviously, my Republican folks, to get it done....

Health care - I got a letter the other day from a group of Republican and Democrat senators talking about the desire to work on health care. And they liked some of my ideas and - but my only point is is that if there's an opportunity for us to - to work together to help the uninsured have private insurance so they can get good health care....

And we'll reach out to Democrat members as well as Republican members to get this bill reauthorized.

Wow, another 3 Accidents, what a clumsy president.
