I Am Bored and Random

March 24th, 2008 3:01am No comments

I needed an update because I kind of wanted to remove the previous post from my homepage. I need to work on the CSS more, because blockquotes look like crap on my homepage (not the blog). But it’s all pulled from the same database. Now that I’m rambling, let me be random and talk about crap most of my non techies couldn’t care less about. It’s almost 4AM, I have been testing Firefox trunk builds all night and reporting bugs (found one where zooming out breaks the background images on this site). It regressed back to October 26, 2007 – (Firefox 3 alpha 9). Since then, there were so many improvements in page zoom, but this one minor thing seemed to break. Oh well, they’ll get it fixed. While I’m at it, go download yourself a beta copy of Firefox 3, it is the shit and kicks Firefox 2’s ass (faster, less RAM, more features). It’s really stable, so don’t be scared. Except don’t be like me and download the nightlys every day because things get messy sometimes. We’ll see where it goes from here. What else? Oh, I got a cold. It’s the second time I got sick this year (which is rare because I’m always healthy). Happy day after Easter. The economy is in the shitter. I’m CPR re-certified, because that expired last year. FiOS TV kick’s iO’s ass because it is much clearer and the guide doesn’t lag. This concludes tonight’s randomness. I’m done. Have a good one.

What A Dick

At least 3,990 members of the U.S. military have died since the beginning of the war in 2003. It has cost taxpayers about $500 billion and estimates of the final tab run far higher. Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph E. Stiglizt and Harvard University public finance expert Linda Bilmes have estimated the eventual cost at $3 trillion when all the expenses, including long-term care for veterans, are calculated.

K-Rock March Bracket Brawl

March 11th, 2008 1:51am No comments

I present to you (with great difficulty), my brackets. By the way, this will never win, because I can just tell it’s not what people think. Click the image for full size.


Now here were the problems:

  1. Led Zeppelin vs. Pink Floyd – hard to choose for me. Both great in their own unique ways.
  2. Stone Temple Pilots vs Pearl Jam. Yikes! I went with STP because the only Pearl Jam album that was awesome was Ten (everything else was just ok).
  3. Foo Fighters vs. Audioslave – Hmm… I’m going with Foo Fighters because the category was 90s, and they had better stuff in the 90s. The good Audioslave wasn’t until 2002 or so.
  4. And the winner? Metallica? Yes, it’s what I picked. I’ve been a Metallica person for the longest time, especially their 80s and 90s works. Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd are legendary, but I didn’t grow up on that. Once again they all cannot really be compared. It’s semi unfair.
