Apprentice DVD Set Worth a Look?

Tuesday, August 24th, 2004

I’ve always been fairly against reality TV DVD sets, mainly because none of them are worth watching a second time (some aren’t even worth watching once…). But it seems some of the casting audition tapes and the preinterviews may make this set worth a rental at least. Gee, Tammy being delusional, naw, that can’t be […]

The New Spying Worm

Tuesday, August 24th, 2004

Great, a worm that spies and leeches from ya! Just what we need! Can’t wait for this worm to take over like all the others. Man, took me like 10 hours to clean up a Sasser infected Celeron box the other day. A pain in the ass, that ONLY worked when I basically repaired Windows […]

The Scream Stolen!

Sunday, August 22nd, 2004

Wow, great security! In broad daylight, in front of tourists. What would Macauley Culkin do? Way to go, Norway! — A hunt began yesterday for The Scream and another masterpiece by the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch after they were snatched in a daytime raid at a gallery in Oslo. Tourists were forced to lie on […]

Christina Says Britney Acts Like “Trailer Trash”

Sunday, August 22nd, 2004

And she’s one to talk? Did she forget what she looked like she was out promoting ‘Dirrty’? I mean, come on, when you dress up and act like that, how can you bitch about your biggest rival? — The Dirrty singer – who is allegedly engaged to long term love Jordan Bratman – reportedly told […]

Best Buy Sued by Ohio AG

Friday, August 20th, 2004

Yeah, that’s why we just don’t buy hardware or software at Best Buy. Or anything for that matter. Plus the fact they have Nazi door checkers that don’t let you pass without seeing your receipt (which is illegal, by the way). 🙂 — “The sheer number of complaints, coupled with the types of allegations my […]

Who Ain’t Ticked Off by NBC Olympics Coverage?

Friday, August 20th, 2004

Someone really should point her to the right video codecs, no? That or let her know what kind of hardware requirements are necessary for viewing of HDTV clips. Funny she wasted that much time and couldn’t get it to play at all. But it is funny she turned to BitTorrent to leech Olympics coverage she […]

Bear Drinks 36 Cans of Rainer, Blows a .08

Thursday, August 19th, 2004

Heh, glad to see he’s true to the local brews! With that body weight, he’s only prolly gonna blow a .08 on the breathlyzer there… Which is illegal in WA state to drive with, but luckily for him, he hid out in trees and just snoozed it off. Why didn’t wildlife officials offer him V8 […]

Hotel San Remo to be Rebranded Hooters Casino Hotel

Tuesday, August 17th, 2004

Oh suuuuuuuuure, do it after I visit. 😛 When I was at the Hotel San Remo in May ’04, the pool sucked (so bad I didn’t even go down there). They didn’t even have an electronic roulette scorer. That’s too old school. Though I suppose if all the dealers and the waitresses are Hooter girls, […]

Wired News: Just ‘internet’ Now

Tuesday, August 17th, 2004

Dunno, seems weird to me. I think I’ll leave it as Internet. Ya know why? Cuz the ‘Net is more important than those other mediums, like radio or television, heck, TV is still capitalized, ain’t it? No reason for that to be capitalized at all… The capital I gives Internet more of a presence in […]

Microsoft’s Voice Recognition Operator Pretty Good

Monday, August 16th, 2004

Perhaps I’m used to stupid voice prompts and dumb voicemail systems, but I was quite surprised this morning when calling Microsoft’s main phone line at (425) 882-8080 and was greeted by an automated system with a female voice asking me who I would like to speak to. I spoke the name, and was pleasantly surprised […]
