Note the time span.


it can’t be

Sen. John Kerry calls President Bush to concede presidential election, CNN has learned. Details soon.

Four more years?

How can we make sure this doesn’t happen again?

What do we do now?


music today brought to you by the word “diamond”

I’ve done a lot of music reorganization over the last week or so. And now I can’t find anything.

Fortunately I have full text indexed searches in Winamp and Copernic Desktop Search.

Here are some great songs with the word Diamond in them:

  • Sonic Youth – The Diamond Sea
  • Paul Simon – Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes
  • Pink Floyd – Shine on You Crazy Diamond
  • The Transplants – Diamonds and Guns (It’s a Twisted World We Live In)
  • Neil Diamond – Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show
  • Ludacris – Diamond In the Back

stever showed me this

I have been using this application for a long long time now. It is called Beyond Compare. It does directory and file comparisons. I won’t delve into all the features, but do check it out if you are in the market for such a tool. There are plugins to support all sorts of file types like MP3 (id3 tag info), images, etc.

Caption contest anyone?


liquid crack

The term liquid crack came up in conversation today.

To me, that refers to Colt 45 Double Malt 40 oz with the big mouth top.

Some choice quotes from online beer review sites:

“So is the double malt supposed to make it taste better or something? Nope, that’s not it.”

“Alcoholic content: Well, after throwing up, Eric said it was pretty strong”

“also, it resulted in chest pains and an ache in my jaw”

“Seriously, how could you possibly go wrong with double the malt?”

Most quotes are from http://www.40ozmaltliquor.com

Funny thing too, I tried to find a picture of a full one cause the color alone is pretty revolting (its a darker brownish hue) but I couldn’t find any.


hacker fearmongering

IBM just had one of those “the hackers are out there” tv ads.

I remember reading somewhere that some government agency reported some astronomical number of hack attempts per day.

I bet you a steak dinner they include these:

#Software: Microsoft Internet Information Services 6.0

OMG I just had eight hack attempts! Seriously this does not count as a hack.
