Heh, still funny tho. They gots the ground effects patent! They is p1mp! They is my hero! 😛 — A Branson man has put a face to the anonymous references people often make to “they” by changing his name to just that: “They.” The former Andrew Wilson, a 43-year-old self-employed inventor, was granted legal permission […]

313 Billionaires on Forbes 400

Thursday, September 23rd, 2004

Wow, 313 of ’em now, including Google’s Sergey Brin and Larry E. Page (both at $4B)… Nice to see the rich get richer. — The combined net worth of the 400 rose $45 billion and reached $1 trillion this year for the first time since 2000, before the dot-com bust wiped out billions of dollars […]

Speed Up Acrobat and Photoshop Loading

Thursday, September 23rd, 2004

Thanks oak! I’ve been hella sick of waiting for Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Photoshop (hmm, written by the same company, both take forever to load, hmm) to load, even on a nice 2Ghz or faster box. Haven’t you? These two freeware apps help solve that problem, significantly reducing load times by not loading every plug-in […]

Kazaa No Longer Top Dog in P2P

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2004

Hmm, I think both eDonkey and Kazaa suck, but that’s just me. The few times I’ve tried using the service, I always get garbled RIAA-processed crap MP3s. Still interesting though, I thought Kazaa had a huge lead in P2P. — According to the network population stats at slyck, FastTrack (home of Kazaa) is no longer […]

That’s Hot, Paris!

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2004

Woop, so a little eye-color change via contacts, some plastic surgery (how much did she have?), and a new personna, and Paris is all the rage. Oh, and throw in a little anorexia and a sex tape, and you can be famous too. Oops, forgot to mention ya gotta have a trust fund. More pix […]

Real McCoy’s ‘Run Away’ in Lexus Ad

Tuesday, September 21st, 2004

Wow, that was a surprise, to hear a Real McCoy (the finest Eurodance in the 90s!) song in a Lexus RX330 ad. Guess they are targetting the younger audience, eh? The ad is pretty lame (some young couple is off cruising away in the RX while Dad or someone sits at home wondering where they […]

Oops… She Did It Again

Sunday, September 19th, 2004

Hahah, maybe this time it’ll last more than 55 hours, but I’d still say the over/under is around a year. — The pop star and fiance Kevin Federline married Saturday in a private ceremony at a Studio City, California, home, according to wire reports.

Write a Worm, Get a Job

Friday, September 17th, 2004

Damn, don’t even have to go to jail in the meantime. So, lemme get this straight, cause tons of havoc around the world, piss off the IT departments, and generally be a nuisance, and you get REWARDED? Nice system they got going, them security firms… — A German teenager accused of creating the Sasser worm […]

Someone’s Been Watching a Bit Too Much Face/Off

Friday, September 17th, 2004

Man, I swear these scientists, err Dr. Frankensteins, just watch futuristic movies and try to emulate it. Though, I’d rather have John Travolta’s face over Nic Cage’s any day, well, if it included his planes and fame., of course. Ya gotta wonder, though, if I wanted Michael Jackson’s current face, could they do that for […]
