Fire! Fire! Fire!

How to start a flame-war of misinformation on the internet in three easy steps: 1. Reverse engineer the firmware of a Linksys wireless and find that it uses open source, GPL‘ed software. 2. Write an entry on your O’Reily blog claiming that the company is in clear violation of the GPL because you can’t find […]


Wow. Our kid is cute.

Where’d You Go?

In case you haven’t noticed, the website when *poof* for a day or so. I’m still waiting on more details from my host, but they said a hard drive failure brought down about half their sites. My guess is it was a firewall or gateway machine that went down, since I could still ping my […]


Well, I learned a couple of things about the NYC school (see below). Enrollment is not limited to homosexuals. Here’s an excerpt from their mission statement: The Hetrick-Martin Institute (HMI) believes all young people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity, deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to achieve their full potential. HMI creates […]


New York City to open first gay high school. I don’t know what to think about this. I’ve got some ideas though: * How to does one determine who is gay enough to get in? Say I’m a geeky straight kid (not much of a stretch, eh?) and I get the snot beat out of […]

If This Is the Future…

I want out, now! Another interesting Salon article detailing a college Republicans convention. I realize the author did her best to find the extremists at the convention, but even the fact that people think this way is pretty scary to me. Even scarier are the excerpts from the Ultimate Warrior’s speech to the kiddies.

Neat Stuff

Salon has a great piece on the widening divide between George W Bush and the neoconservatives and the traditional (small government, isolationist foreign policy, minimal government spending) conservatives within the Republican party. If you really think Bush represents the face of conservativism, read this article. Then there’s the do-it-yerself GNU/Linux […]

Rally Deutschland Wrapup

Sebastien Loeb has won this year’s German Rally by a mere 3 seconds over Marcus Gronholm. It’s been quite a wild weekend, with multiple lead changes and nasty weather. Both Richard Burns and Markko Martin held the lead at various points this weekend. Burns looked to be set to score his first win in a […]

Rally Deutschland – Day 1 – Update

Within only the superspecial at St Wendel this evening left, Richard Burns is back in the lead. Markko Martin stormed the middle stages, and looked to be the main to beat, until gearbox issues left him without 5th and 6th gears (not exactly ideal for the flat, wide stages later in the day). Martin has […]

Rally Deutschland – Day 1

Day 1 of the German Rally is at the halfway point, and there have been a few surprises. Richard Burns came out of the gate very quickly, setting the pace on SS1 and 2, but Markko Martin has responded and now has the lead after four stages. The surprises? Well, pre-race favorite Gilles Panizzi is […]
