House Fire.

Because I was there before the fire Department. Coming home last night and this is what I see. The building was abandoned. The guy in some of the pictures was the first firefighter on scene. I beat him by two minutes.


This was Friday.

Because it is....

Farscape > Star Trek > Stargate > Star Wars

Car of the Year?

What is with commercials from the big 2.5? Saturn is saying their Aura is the North American car of the year. Voted by whom? In what magazine?

Isn't the Aura an Opel Astra?

Designed in Europe and built in Europe... Eh?

You Are a Visual Learner

You tend to remember what you see, and you have a good eye for aesthetics.
You excel at art, design, and computer programming.
You would be an excellent film director - or the next Bill Gates!


You Are Pretty Logical

You're a bit of a wizard when it comes to logic
While you don't have perfect logic, you logic is pretty darn good
Keep at it - you've got a lot of natural talent in this area!

So far on the bandwidth meter I have used 4.5gb on my primary machine.

1.8gb on Leslie's

.55 on Mom's

1.2gb on my laptop.


8.05gb in three days....

Maybe I should download a Torrent and let it run for a couple of days. Or maybe login to primenet for some prime number finding. That will run up that total in a hurry.

UPDATE 18FEB07 4:00 P.M.
11gb on desktop
2.2gb leslie's
1.00gb mom's
1.7gb laptop
15.9gb used.

Happy Valentines!

P.S. Tom Cruse is weird.

(inside joke don't ask)


1gb MicroSD card. $14

Comcast Customer Uses "Unlimited Service" Excessively, Gets Disconnected For A Year
Comcasts "Unlimited" internet is....

So for the next month I'll be using ISP Monitor 5.3 to see how much bandwidth I actually use. I don't think it is close to 200gb but we'll see. The software was installed at exactly 6:00 P.M. central time on 11Feb07.

Is it at all possible to make a system loaded with XP Pro remotely login to a XP Home computer? Because I can make my XP home systems login to the pro computer but not the other way around. That doesn't work for me, nor does it seem right.

And what does one do with a lamp server? I've got one up and running with Webmin installed. I just have no idea what to do with it yet. It isn't a permanent fix. I need to gut the system I'm using and build a new one for someone else then get another machine to replace it. But I digress, what can I use it for?

People are STUPID!

Firemen spoof catches heat

Fire department officials are investigating video spoofs made by Huntsville firefighters more than three years ago to raise money for charity.

Two videos - which parody the songs "Man of Constant Sorrow" and "The Fireman" - got posted on YouTube.com, and a local blogger who saw the videos wrote complaints on the al.com Huntsville forum that the firefighters who made them misused government property because they filmed it at a fire station and were wearing their uniforms.

The blogger also said the spoofs showed "a total lack of respect for their chief."

Whoever this putz is that complained is a total ass hole. And according to this site there aren't that many.


I think Pontiac has a winner with the G8 sedan that was revealed yesterday.

Here is the story with pictures.

I don't like the beige dash, but the rest of the car looks fantastic!


Extension of the week.

FIAR shot me an email about his 7 hours trying to get wireless working in Ubuntu. Von, if I'm wrong could you help me out on this?

I found this on digg just now...

Ubuntu and wireless - now better than Windows!

As I said in the comments. If it wasn't a once every decade thing I wouldn't care.
