'Lo All.

Just a quick update. Not...Much...Time...

The Jade Eagle must be taken to the seventh house on the third night of the second month.

Only kidding. All is going well.

Learning all sorts of crazy crap about security and other boring things like that.

Any way. X-ray went good. Me = All healthy and stuff.

I promise to write more stuff next week. There might even be a secret guest blogger on this Friday... maaaaybe...

Gotta go. Love ya. Bye Bye.

Too my loyal few readers.

Thanks heaps for reading. love hearing from ya.

I'm going on a training course next week so I don't think I'll be able to blog anything.

I promise to be back.

I gotta say, I enjoy reading about technology. Here is a rolling stones article about the origins of Justin Frankel. The inventor of Winamp and then later Gnutella.

100 million. Man, I gotta put on my creative hat. um... how about a... program... that... um...plays MP3's...with...um... Cool Visuals...

**mental note: Think of an original idea.


acerbia is always such an enjoyable read, but this last post... I dunno. Does it mean that its over? there are no comments.

Have I thought about kids? Would you like to see what would happen if I had any? Smash an egg on a countertop, scrape it all into a coffee mug and tell the egg yolk everything will be fine when it becomes a chicken. This is your kid in need of drugs because the father is a nutjob and comes from a long line of failures. I've yet to meet anyone with a sane family. You're all as screwed up as the rest of us.
Usually it's comical. or involves a terrible pun. hmm. I guess we'll see.

In the mean time, everyone, go. read. laugh.

A damn fine write up on the SOTU

Jerry Costello has got sack.

Man, That Costello fella. I'm impressed
U.S. Rep Jerry Costello has called for impeachment hearings against U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney during Congress' session that begins today...
Costello questioned the award of billions of dollars of contracts to Cheney's former corporation Haliburton to extinguish fires and rebuild Iraq's oil infrastructure after the war.
And I completely agree with the man. I wondered this myself at the time, surely it couldn't have been legal, awarding contracts without bids, and to top it off, he was the CEO for the 5 years before running with bush... Sus sus sus.

I 'spose Che will just have to throw money at it and soon Costello will be living under a bridge disgraced... or his wife will be outed as a Federal Agent... or he will mysteriously commit suicide... This administration sure is dodgy.

Let the hearings begin.

How strange the sound.

Say my name aloud
And make it new
And I'll promise you what I can
I forget myself when I'm with you
Please remind me who I am
Jo. My fiancee'. I love you more than anything in the world. Although you will prolly never read this, you are what keeps me going. You are my heart, my essence. I love you.

Yes. A while, if you consider 2 hours a while. Anyway, not off to a good start.

"So why have you come to see us today?"

First of all, he asked me to come and see him for a check up, second of all, he asked me to come in for an x-ray.

"An x-ray you say...you didn't get booked in for an x-ray, just a consultation with me..."

... huh?...

"What are you doing next Tuesday?"

So I have to go in next Tuesday. No great weights lifted, but at least I don't have a tube in my lung so... YaY.

Edit: Oh yeah, Thanks to the good folks at RSSify at WCC for the work And a thanks to the equally fine folk over at Scripty Goddess for supplying the link.

Just a little bit worried.

To let you all know, if I stop posting for the next week, or 2, or 3 it isn't cause I'm giving up the blog. Tonight I'm going into hospital to get my lung x-rayed. If it doesn't come up peachy keen... Drip...Scalpal...Tube...Bubbling Machine...bed rest...eep.

On another note, I would like to send some love out to S. S is a friend of mine who was last night upgraded from her local country hospital to a swish city hospital, but all for the wrong reasons. Apparently her Blood Oxygen content has gone down to 60%. Not a good thing I'm told. So everyone, send some love.

What is it with respitory problems... must be something in this office. Maybe I could sue someone... It's the American way.

How 'bout we start the day off with something funny.

I remember seeing this a while ago, but was again recently brought to my attention

Cartoon Laws of Physics.

Any violent rearrangement of feline matter is impermanent.
Cartoon cats possess even more deaths than the traditional nine lives might comfortably afford. They can be decimated, spliced, splayed, accordion-pleated, spindled, or disassembled, but they cannot be destroyed. After a few moments of blinking self pity, they reinflate, elongate, snap back, or solidify.
I wonder if I could work accordion-pleated into my day to day conversation. "Put that down! Don't make me accordion-pleat you!" That would work. sure it would.

What a tripper.

I really hope this guy gets a prize or something.
"Instead of satiating the gods, many of these "scientists" have tried to control El Niño with "science". They put up expensive fish-attracting-bueys that run on flashlight batteries. Imagine, figting the power of the gods with flashlight batteries! Needless to say, this didn't work and everyone died."
Reminds me of my friends cousin. I won't mention his name, but hey. He was a tripper.

I couldn't have commented on this one any better than


speaking of... The Israeli abassador who vandalised an art exhibit in his host country is not so much a free speech issue as far as I'm concerned, but rather one of self-control. You do have to wonder about an "ambassador" that behaves in such a way, much less the leader of an entire country who supports it. But then, I guess some people prefer violence and criminal damage to dialogue. Kind of ironic, considering the piece was he protesting.
I got nothin' to add on this one.

I would ahve thought that having your software turn into an expression for using any type of that software was a good thing.

Apparently not.

Apparently I can say that I like photoshopping things. I must say "I like using Adobe Photoshop to enhance my images."

I also take Panadol brand paracetamol and drink Coke brand cola.

I can see how they thought it was a good idea.

Why I love the internet. # 223

People are funny.

Seriously. You take a game like the sims, which on it's own is strangely addictive, you add the mafia, prostitution, sexual fetishes and wa-la. Always gonna be funny.

I got a question...

For all the mobile phone developers out there.


It seems to have everything else. It goes on the internet. Runs java, makes movies, dances, holds me at night and tells me that everything will be ok, substitutes in for the kitchen sink when the sink isn't feeling well. But it doesn't have T.V.

Surely it couldn't be THAT hard. It has a view screen. An antenna. Buttons that go from 1 to 0. Hell it even has buttons that my T.V. dreams about but still, I can't sit on the train and watch T.V. on my phone. It's just not good enough.

Bush making a space station on the moon...

Not gonna happen

Between now and the first landings on the moon, two presidential elections will occur, as well multiple congressional elections. The public, whose support for the initiative will be crucial, will have ample opportunity to have its attention distracted by other developments at home and abroad.
I wonder if funding will get cut? now let me think... Health care for U.S citizens or PUTTING A SPACE STATION ON THE MOON? um... Fund public schools or PUTTING A SPACE STATION ON THE MOON? and heres one even the right will agree with. Fighting a war on terror or, you guessed it PUTTING A SPACE STATION ON THE MOON?

Now don't get me wrong. It would be absolutly awesome to have a space station on the moon, but sadly, money can be and needs to be spent on things that are a lot smarter that putting a space station on the moon.

A lil brain teaser for all the clever peoples out there.

Puzzle Two in particular.

I love doing these types of puzzle. This one took me waaaay too long.

Bush and the Middle East

An excellent article detailing just how close the Bush families ties are with the middle east.

As early as 1964, George H.W. Bush, running for the U.S. Senate from Texas, was labeled by incumbent Democrat Ralph Yarborough as a hireling of the sheik of Kuwait, for whom Bush's company drilled offshore oil wells. Over the four decades since then, the ever-reaching Bushes have emerged as the first U.S. political clan to thoroughly entangle themselves with Middle Eastern royal families and oil money. The family even has links to the Bin Ladens — though not to family black sheep Osama bin Laden — going back to the 1970s.

How these unusual relationships helped bring about 9/11 and then distorted the U.S. response to Islamic terrorism requires thinking of the Bush family as a dynasty. The two Bush presidencies are inextricably linked by that dynasty.
Seriously, there must be some "Extra curricular" activity going on in the Bush camp.

Forget the war on terror.

The War of Drugs is in need of attention.

With fine events like this
RAID! On May 16, New York City police tossed a stun grenade into the home of 57-year-old Alberta Spruill, city worker and church volunteer, who died from a heart attack during the mistaken drug raid. On May 23, NYC police accidentally raid the home of teacher Joe Celcis. Police smashed open the door, handcuffed several people, pointed a gun in the face of a 12-year old girl and ransacked the house for 90 minutes before realizing they had the wrong address. On Nov. 5, cops in a Charleston, SC, suburb burst into the mostly white Stratford High School at 6:45 a.m. with guns drawn and ordered mostly black students to get down on the floor while cops searched lockers and book bags for marijuana; students who didn't move fast enough were handcuffed. No drugs were found in the 45-minute raid. Seventeen of the students are suing the school district.
And Fun facts like this
Switzerland's Addiction Research Institute calls tobacco the number one killer addiction, responsible for 71 percent, or 4.9 million of the world's 7 million annual drug-related deaths. About 1.8 million deaths, or 26 percent, were attributed to the use of alcohol, while illicit drugs caused about 223,000, or 3 percent, of all worldwide drug-related deaths.
It is a wonder why they even bother...

Bad bad news

does this mean that Bush has bought the supreme court?

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court Monday refused to hear an appeal by civil liberties groups seeking access to basic data about hundreds of individuals detained by the federal government after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

The decision allows the government to continue withholding the names of most detainees, as well as other information related to their arrests, indefinitely.

In a brief order released without published dissent, the court turned down a petition by the Center for National Security Studies, the American Civil Liberties Union and several media organizations that had argued that the Bush administration's refusal to release the information violated the Freedom of Information Act and the constitutional guarantee of freedom of the press.
I must say, I am getting pretty sick of ShrubCo playing the "national security" card. It does get a bit old.

Search Engine really are an imbred lot.

Google and The ODP sure are hussies... they are giving it up to everybody...

I just walked into the kitchen to here one fellow say to another

Then they looked at me and shut up. I swear, I could have cut the tension with a knife.

Apparently Lust should be considered a virtue and not a vice, as long as it's in moderation.

Xade Gaming Platform

Hey all. Just a question to any of the readers out there.

I'm currently undertaking a small project to create a platform program that will allow for additional functionallity to be written and plugged in by the masses.

I'm writing this thing in VB.net (Here you go linux, take my geek card) So if anyone creates any mods for it, that is what you will be feeding into.

The basic premise of this is to create a platform and a forum for game makers out there to release works that are just to small/novel for any real release to the world.

I spose my question would be this. What do you think? Is there a need in the world for something like this?

If my new title doesn't get people commenting... Nothing will.

And if I have changed the title since this post, it was

"Users. Proving I.T. incompetant since '83"

Flame away.

So, they are pulling them out...

I read This article today and I must say that I am not very surprised.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 7 — The Bush administration has quietly withdrawn from Iraq a 400-member military team whose job was to scour the country for military equipment, according to senior government officials.
However, the conspiricy nut in me still believes that ShrubCo knows exactly where the WMD are and are waiting for the election...

Except for that 'MOO' question. Had no idea.

Such a silly little game staring Garfield would take up my entire lunch break...

Maybe I'll give him credit for this one...

Seems bush is creating a policy that is to allow illegal immigrants access to working visas. This is done on the basis that no America want the job. So it's working on the premise that yes, they will be shitty jobs, but at least you will have rights if your employer abuses you. If it is pulled off like this, then it sounds alright. However if it is just a scam to get illegal immigrants to sign up in order to collect a nice bunch of name for a quick "Bam, you're out", then I would be very disappointed. not surprised, just disappointed.

Edit: Wow. I'm amazed and impressed at the amount of Right sided blogs I have read recently how are pissed at this move by bush... That said, I wonder why he is doing it. He would have know that his flock wouldn't like this. Strange. The optimist in me wants me to believe that he's doing a good thing, the cynic in me is saying collecting a nice list.

Go Medical Science

I'm sure that when I'm old and decrepid that medical science will have a cure.

Apparently these days they are curing deafness by implanting thingies directly into the brainstem

I sure was hoping nothing would go wrong...

Roughtly two months ago a friend of mine at work spilt his cup of coffee all over his keyboard. Thinking quickly, took his keyboard to the kitchen an proceeded to hose the thing down.
Thinking that plugging it in while it is still dripping prolly isn't the smartest thing to do, he left it on his desk to dry. Today he plugged it in.

Worked like a charm. Better than new. I hate to admit that I was sorta hoping for an explosion but I 'spose you can't have everything.

Now please people, use this knowledge for good. and don't blame me if somethin' 'splodes.

My new favorite site.

What Creationist Hate

And speaking of lack of humility, M. J. Chapman contributes the following:
Evolution is a lie, correct? It's an idea spawned by Satan to damn our souls. Okay, let's think about that. Satan gets the souls of sinners, correct? If he wants souls, he has to make humans sin. What are the seven sins? There's greed, lust, sloth, envy, gluttony, pride... and I can never remember the last one, but that's okay because the important one here is pride. The Bible goes to great lengths to say that terrible things lie in store for the proud in the great hereafter.
So which is an idea that contributes more to human pride: that we were specially created in the image of God to be the masters of all other creatures upon the Earth? Or that we are one species out of countless billions that has arisen according to simple and probably inevitable rules of chemistry and selection?

Man. If there is one thing that really irks me it is creationism.

Can I quote a bible. Right from the start.

1. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

2. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

3. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

4. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

5. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

OK. So god made light. Split it into day and night... lets skip forward a couple of days. maybe to the fourth...

14. And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

15. And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

16. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

17. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

18. And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

19. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

OK. so he makes day and night. After that he makes the sun and the moon...
um... I though the sun made day... and the lack of sun made night...
Is it just me or has the chicken come before the egg here.

Seriously. How did this happen. With a mistake that is so blantant on the first page. How is this movement taking off. I mean hell, your president believes in this crap.

Now, I am not here trying to offend people. I am not here to rubbish what you want to believe. What seriously troubles me is when it is said that actual science, you know, the one with actual evidence, is flawed because it goes against a book that has errors on it's first page.

I have a friend who went to a religous school. Now, her school forbid her and the other students to watch Jurassic Park because "Dinosaurs aren't in the bible so they never existed". Apparently all these bones everyone keeps finding everywhere are there to test our faith.uhuh. I wish I had a fall back line like that ever time I was wrong. Sorta like that "Oh... Yeah, I knew that, I was just testing you" thing that you use when you are in grade 4.

I've had enough. </rant>

I can't believe that they could still be anywhere in developed countries where people still entertain the belief that women "ask" to be the victim of domestic abuse.

They're monkeys... and they're using TYPEWRITTERS

They're my monkeys and they've been working real hard.

They started out with only a couple of thousand of them. Trying hopelessly to type out the works of shakespeare by randomly bashing on keyboards.

With only bananas to eat, my monkeys have grown into a vast populous of roughly 3,512,750,000,000 members.

The closest they have come to typing out shakespeare works so far is 11 letters from "Cymbeline". I'm so proud. *gush*

Now lets get this started.

Even before I get the time to change those linky things on the right there... you know, the ones that say "google news" and "Edit-Me", I might tell you all just a little bit about myself. A small taste if you will.

With this being the internet, I should do the whole A/S/L thing, Ha.

How about this. I'll start a comp. If anybody can guess my asl, they will win a "prize"...

What I will tell you all1 is this. I have a beautiful fiance' (sorry ladies) and a beautiful baby girl.

I've been a blogStalker for ages now. Figured, hey. Maybe it is time I actually gave something back to the blogging community. (Plus, it doesn't look THAT hard...).

Over the last few years I've had the honor of stalking Solonor. From Solonor's Ink Well - One day I'll make The ListTM... either that or it could be extended to a list of the top 1000 maybe?... 10,000? how 'bout making a special category?. Sorta like some kind of "Drag a loser newbie blogger out of the gutter out of the depths of blogging obscurity into the lime light" category. or is that the point of the Aortal thing? who knows.

Ok. who else do I stalk... let me see... looking through the list...

My favorite blogger on all things ShrubCo, Scott. From The Gamer's Nook. always an excellent read. Plus, he came number 1 on The ListTM

That moves me on to Les. The Stupid Evil Bastard Which I always read as Stupid Vile Bastard... stupid brain. WORK PROPERLY DAMN IT!!! Now, for some reason, I'm always thinking that Les is Scotts evil brother. I have no idea why I have this idea, prolly something to do with the brain properly work not. Anyways, for all your religous and secular needs... and I mean ALL of them. This guy is your man.

moving to the next stalkee on the list and... wait a minute, wasn't this supposed to be about me... me me me me me!
*mental note: make one of those "other blogs" lists down the side and stop wasting everybodys2 time.

I think I'm gonna make on of those list down the side... when I have the time.

P.S. this blogging business is fun.

1: and by all I mean the poor sucker/s who comes to this site thinking it contains something to do with the Paris Hilton Sex Tape or Brittney. I wonder why they would think that...
2: See 1. Or maybe you came here looking for hot girl on girl action. again, sorry. can't help you.

Hopefully this will be my last post done solely for the purpose of testing...

Then again, it prolly won't be.

Now I have titles

YaY. this blogging thing doesn't seem too hard to work out. Now, which button lets me take over the internet?

Ok. So now I have a blog. Up Yours Internet.
