An amusing diatribe from bloodycarrot:

If you`re going to have to eat someone from "The Flintstones" TV show, it`s gotta be Betty. Why then, is Betty Rubble the only main character missing from bottles of Flintstones chewable vitamins? Fuck, they`ve got Dino, they even have Fred`s friggin`car for Crissake, but no Betty!!! Wilma? (eech!). I`ve had to resort to Pebbles and I`m feeling pretty damn guilty about it.

So David Beckham get's his own personal logo:

This leads me to think we all should have personal logos. Chop-chop people, let's get to work. I want to see your personal logos!

Okay... This is a thirty second drawing, but roughly what my logo would be...



If you can't tell, it's supposed to look like a reclining Ceasar withis a camera for a head. As you can also tell, drawing is not my strong suit.

For those of you into color theory, my co-worker sent me this:

A very nice layer based color selector that provides several different ways to generate color schemes

My newest conspiracy theory! Don your tin foil caps please.

Piracy pushing technology?

Supposedly our DVD's will soon be out of date as we will be getting much higher capacity blue laser DVD's.

But why the rush to get this techonology out the door? I mean, not every house has a DVD player yet, so they could milk the market for a few more years.

My thought is the new players we have a much more secure encoding system. The studios claim to be losing a fair amount of money due to piracy, and they could be pressing for a quick release of something with better encryption. But how to get people to move to the new technology?

Get lower the cost of HDTV's so more people get them. Then people will want HDTV compliant DVD players, which is what the new high capacity blue laser players offer.

So, it boils down to studios and distributers wanting to protect their product. Them bribing/coercing/pressuring manufactures to release a new product that will protect the studios product. But the only way they can get people to buy the new product is if their is a major value add for the consumer.

So... Piracy is actually bringing us newer and better technology sooner and hopefully cheaper.

Remove tin foil hats and burn your computer, lest the men in the black helicopters get their hands on this.

My dream case mod...

I would like to make case to go under my desk that would be at an angle so I could use it as a foot rest. The foot area would be knobby and with vent holes. On the other side of the holes would be fans blowing warm air at might feet, also the fans would cause slight vibrations massaging my feet.

I figure I can get a cdrom and possibly a floppy drive on USB so that can be on the desk. Also route a power switch and a USB hub to the desk.

My computer would be out of the way. My feet would be warm. And I would be very relaxed.

That is my dream case mod.
