March 2006


But it’s been a week and I am STILL blown away by this guy.

And it’s not just because he’s accompanied by one of my favorite pieces of music ever.

I hope you have a broadband connection. Download it and then play it for the best quality (click here to go to Google Video and get the video):

I guess I misled you again. Windows Vista isn’t being released in a month or two as we originally thought, or even November as I told you today.

It’s now pushed back to next January. 2007.

From CNet:

Chipmaker Intel declined to comment on the delay. Advanced Micro Devices had no public statement prepared when contacted by CNET News.com.

“Microsoft really dropped the ball on this one,” said Sam Bhavnani, a principal analyst with Current Analysis, in an e-mail interview. “There are significant negative ripples that will be felt throughout the personal computer industry.”

Wow. All this, after Microsoft stripped out so many features to make it to market. And how likely will it be that Vista will be delayed even more?

Don’t get me wrong, I want my next PC to have Vista. I just don’t want to grow old waiting for it.

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m redoing my template, and teaching myself a few things more about markup and CSS.

In true bad form, I’m doing it live so you can all see the ugly process. Hold tight, it’s going somewhere.

Hopefully not off a cliff.

I can’t believe that the guy survived this crash–Bill posted it on his weblog.

Man. Maybe my van is good for something after all, at least as far as crash protection goes.

Sorry–the below tidbit just made me laugh. And it was on Andrew Sullivan’s blog, no less! In case you were unaware, Issac Hayes threatened to quit South Park because it “crossed the line” when it made fun of Scientology. Never mind the fact that it’s made fun of virtually every other religion on earth while Isaac happily collected his paycheck. If you haven’t already twigged to this, Isaac is a Scientologist.

Excerpted from Andrew Sullivan | The Daily Dish:

Yep, I can now confirm that Viacom and Comedy Central caved in to the Scientologists and Tom Cruise, but the South Park team are unrepentant. Here’s their official statement:

“So, Scientology, you may have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for earth has just begun! Temporarily anozinizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies. Curses and drat! You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu!!!

– Trey Parker and Matt Stone, servants of the dark lord Xenu.”
