So here I am…

Sitting in Aroma, using the wonders of wireless technology, yet again.

It’s been a hectic couple of weeks, and now’s time to rest a little. Over the next few days, I will be on vacation, and will be pretty disconnected from everything.

At work today I had a nice long talk with our chief systems architect, and I think I may have made an impact on the future. We shall see as events unfold.

Anyways, to all out there, have a great weekend, and if you observe, have an easy fast, and if you don’t, have a nice day off.

Newsflash: Jesus was actually water-skiiing!

So on Sunday, Yos & I recorded a podcast, but due to hectic week schedules, I have yet to post it.
I hope to do so over the weekend, to allow you crazy sibscribers out there to enjoy the rantings and ravings of a few good men.

While trawling the net tonight, sitting in the guest room of a friend’s place (with a lovely wireless hookup, thank you!), I found an article on some Spaniards and their police training methods.
I do declare, this is one method that I think police everywhere should adopt, as it’ll educate them on how to properly get [email protected]#$ed.

Another interesting article for all of you iPod owners out there, the new, the improved, the better-than-butter iPod Breathalyzer!
That’s right kids, you can be like daddy and take your own blood alcohol level, all in the comfort of your own home.
I can’t help but wonder whether or not this actuall has some practical use – like broadcasting over the FM waves “The driver of the ’67 Chevy is piss drunk, stay away from him!”

And all of this boils down to the Hoff himself. Watch and enjoy.

Ciao.

Interesting Linux things…

So as of late, I have become more aware of some of the more powerful aspect of using Linux as a desktop/server solution.

I have tried the latest release of a nice Debian-based distribution, named Ubuntu.
It’s fairly versatile and the sheer number of community users ensures a large support network, so chances are if you run into a problem, someone else may have had the same issue before.

So my colleague, David, points me to a parody site of a specialized installation of this operating system, geared towards the Christian community.

Now, obviously the parody site is hilarious, but what got me a little more is the fact that there is actually a real distribution out there.

So, a litte digging around helped me find this, a nice response from my Jew-boy brothers out there.

I hope you laugh as hard as I did.
