iPhone: Cute and... well... cute

I love hearing about the iPhone. I've seen pictures. It's pretty slick. Looks really nice. Now throw Palm OS on there and then we're talking. Sorry, but I've already got an ipod (well, two actually... no... three including the wife's shuffle), so I really don't need another one. The touchscreen …

Fricking spam

Well, I've had it. Spam is driving me nuts. My spamassassin/RBL lists/etc. setup was working really well for a long time but now more and more spam is getting through and it's nothing if not pissing me off. Strange thing is, I get a lot more spam on …

One week without wisdom teeth...

Well, it's been over a week since I got my wisdom teeth yanked (last Wed, the 13th). That was just about the most fun I've ever had. First off they put me completely out (and I've never been under anisthetic before) which was... wierd. I didn't have any real reaction …

Legacies and the power of nostalgia

Legacies are a good thing. Everyone wants to leave a legacy... in the most basic form it's being a parent to a child who will carry on a physical legacy. Almost everyone has a legacy, will have a legacy, or is someone else's legacy. There are, of course, other folks …

Blog spam

Good God... I've just deleted nearly 70 spam comments originating in the last 2 weeks. This is retarded.

Makes me almost want to disable comments altogether, although, fortunately, I have it set that every single comment requires moderation. But still... what a flippin' waste of time.

Assholes of the world …
