I’m a nerd. No, I’m not sure you understand. I’m a truly massive nerd. This is why when I read that IBM has written some office applications (i.e. Word Processor, Spreadsheet etc) using only cross-platform DHTML, I fell off my chair crying with laughter. Check it out: The future, as seen from 1996. Try that… Continue reading Insanity, thy name is IBM
CD Baby is an awesome site dedicated to profiting from unfortunate stoners helping independant artists distribute their music. They have a surprisingly simple but effective business model: Pay them $40 (US) to encode your CD (artists keep all copyrights, rights to non-digital distribution, and can leave at any time with 30 days notice) They distribute… Continue reading Death to the Media Oligarchy!
In a recent post, Matt‘s blog wisely pointed us to the Bulwer-Lytton Awards, granted to the most “impressive” openings to imaginary novels.

Man, Al Qaeda is so desperate for mercenaries, they’ll train anything! [slaps thigh charismatically] He’d better not get caught… he might get sent to the infamous “Camp Tickles”.
I was amazed to see that left-wing protest girls have finally acknowledged that they are likely to have more pubic-hair than their less politically-active, more sexually-oppressed sisters. I’m not sure I’d trust her bush either. Anything could be hiding in there. Speaking of labelling, oppressing, and demeaning women and judging them by unrealistic standards, check… Continue reading Anti-war protestor shocks world by realistically depicting own genitals
Alright – second blog posting! It’s only taken a week… but so much has happened! However, I’ve censored it! Go me!
Alas, the server on which my blog was hosted died a horrible death (well, not that horrible really, the network it was on became inaccessible, and then the owner took the opportunity to upgrade it – not that you care), so welcome to the all-new, clean and shiny blog with none of that nasty “precious… Continue reading *sigh* here we go again…
