Ok, I know I'm not supposed to name other bloggers in my entries, but I hope we can make an exception here. Brad, as CEO of Stardock and the driving force behind the goodness of Joe User, deserves a little jab once in awhile to keep him on his feet. Besides, I like the guy, even if HE IS THE DEVIL!

Well, not the Biblical Satan intent on the downfall of man. More like Old Saint Nick, waiting to tempt you with your greatest desire at every turn. Brad does that, the tempting thing, and it's time...

I'm restless today. No idea why, maybe it's some of the flu medicine still in my system, maybe I've spent too much time inside my house. I don't know.
I'm pacing alot, going back and forth, forgetting what I was doing then starting something else. I've tried to sit down and write some insightful articles about Stardock, the oil peak and other things jumping around in my head, but they've all ended in failure - I can't write without rambling on and on and on.

See what I mean?

I hate this. ...

Well, it came out today, the long awaited Konfabulator for Windows. Everyone here knows I'm a widget junkie, and I've been waiting to see what Konfabulator brought to the table.

The answer: Not bloody much.

Here's my first, and very important issue with Konfabulator... it's bloatware. I run anAthlonXP 3200+ Barton with 1Gb DDR400, RAID 1 sata 8mb cache (identicalliquid bearing drives), Radeon 256mb 9700 Pro and KONFABULATOR IS SLUGGISH. Thats right, it's slow to open a widget, and the res...

It happens every month: a new flu or cold cycles it's way through our house. Right at this moment I am sitting here with a fever, aches and pains and enough sinus drainage to remake The Blob.

And it's all my wifes fault.

She's always been susceptable to virus. From the time she was 9 days old, when she almost died from being sick, she's been fighting off one thing or another. She doesn't like being sick... she used to be a professional dancer, is in very good shape, eats much healthier tha...

So I posted about politics anyway. Clinton and nukes are two subjects you rarely see in the same sentence. Honestly, I sat down today to write up my entry on global warming, the next Ice Age and why we need to be concerned.
And then, re-researching old (and new) links I have on the subject, I kept stumbling across the same figure over and over: human CO2 emmissions account for just .06% of total global CO2 emmissions. Thats so little it stopped and made me think, do we really know whats going o...

From United Press International (linked through Drudge):
Documents: U.S. had plan to nuke N. Korea

Seoul, South Korea, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Newly declassified documents revealed the United States planned as recently as 1998 to drop nuclear bombs on North Korea if the country attacked South Korea.

As part of "scenario 5027," 24 F15-E bombers flew simulation missions at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina to drop mock nuclear bombs on a firing range between January and June 1998, t...

So I've eaten a few brains these past few weeks. The elections have come and gone, and they were indeed exciting. Good job to Republicans. Now it's time to put that aside and move on to some very important non-partisan issues that I have become extremely concerned with over the past year. Issues concerning the enviroment and the future of humanity. VERY important issues based on some recent scientific data: the oil peak, food overgrowth and (ready for this?) the upcoming ICE AGE!

Sounds craz...

Ok. Here it is. One more attempt at an olive branch... my blacklist has been cleared of everyone except Sir Peter Maxwell (who is suspended from JU anyway because everyone knows he's crazy).

Every registered blogger is entitled to reply to my articles if that is the choice I make when posting. I will remember that in the future and constrain myself accordingly.

Nov. 3rd, Terry McAuliffe, DNC Chairman, stated after Tuesdays Bush victory, "there's no one person in the party who can step in and put the Dems on the right track". Finally! A moment of honesty from the head DNC crook (remember the guy that turned a $100,000 investment into $18,000,000 in 11months through Global Crossing profiteering?). This is the third straight election cycle that Terry McAuliffe is taking the heat for, and word is, he's on the outs. How quickly things change. It was a mere ...

It's been a good day. Other than all the political nonsense going on (shut up already!), we've started fourth quarter projects for the big telecomm companies. And that's all fun and money.

"Knock it nice and smooth and watch it flow...never gonna stop me, never gonna stop...

Here's how it works: my clients send me projects at the absolutely last minute. It's great, because my biggest client is a bunch of slackers! They love that I can turn week long projects around in about two hours (year...

In a previous blog entry I asked for unity between Conservatives and Liberals. However, I need to amend that:

If you are crying about the results of the election, if you think it's the end of the world, if you all you can do is whine, then please, SHUT UP ALREADY!

This was a public service message by Zombie, Inc. Eating Liberal brains since 1970..."

I want to start this blog by deeply thanking the 58,884,557 American citizens that voted to re-elect President George W. Bush to the White House. You have made history, giving our President the highest popular vote in The United States of America. Never before has any President lost the popular vote during his first election been re-elected to a second term, and never has the turn out been so great. You understand the challanges that face America, and you understood which canidate was the person...

Even though it is likely that President Bush will take the Electoral vote tonight, whisperings amongst Democrats are encouraging contesting votes in Ohio, which could throw this election upside down.

Anyone else tired of this?
