Not a Bug

Sorry man, but this is not a bug as Bill Bumgarner points out. I'm glad I can replace a folder with a file. It's not as if you're not warned.

Bochs: XP on your Mac

From the "Who needs Virtual PC anyway?" department comes the surprising (to me, anyway) news that Bochs is up and running on Mac OS X. Find out more at Open OS X. Thanks to Mac OS X's advanced architecture, multiple G4 CPUs can be utilized and are emulated as a single powerful Pentium(R) processor or […]

Pressure From Within

Our current Dubyament, errr, government doesn't seem to care what the population thinks, or what the rest of the world thinks, so maybe they'll respond to some pressure from within. From John Brady Kiesling's letter of resignation to Secretary of State Colin L. Powell: I am writing you to submit my resignation from the Foreign […]

Nick notes the breakup of Zora and Evan, and also a bit about Trista and Ryan. Says Zora: I think we were just overwhelmed by the situation. I think it was really nice being reunited; we were both genuinely happy to see each other. But there was also some editing done that gave the viewer […]

Winning WTC Design

The winning design for the rebuilt World Trade Center towers has been announced. The plans look impressive, and the gardens and things are nice. Part of me thinks building an even bigger set of towers in place of the destroyed ones is a bit arrogant, and the other part of me likes that arrogance. Libeskind […]

Self Control

This explains so much: Self-control, whether used to pass up the office cookie plate or to struggle against temptations like alcohol and tobacco, operates like a renewable energy source rather than a learned skill or an analytical thought process, according to new research. Read more here if you can control yourself.

Survivor 6.3

Survivor 6.3 played last night, and that's about nearly all I have to say about it. The men once again played with their balls, errrr, their Magic 8 Ball. "Will I get to sleep with Jenna?" Yeah, I'm sure that's what I'd be worried about if I was losing 4 out of 5 challenges, not […]

Pet Peeve: Eric

It's a pet peeve of mine when people write to me as "Eric." My name is "Erik." I have nothing against people named Eric and think that, like my name or "Steve" or "Dave" or "Ronald" or "George," "Eric" is a fine name - it's just not mine. If someone continuously called you "Rob" and […]

Individual Archive Re-Des

Slight re-design on my individual archives tonight. Moved the trackbacks to the left menu, took out the popup link for comments since they're below the article, and so on. Next thing will be to rebuild articles when i get a TrackBack, but I'm still concerned about this: If you have a fair amount of faith […]

To Do

My To Do list. Blue = "I did it already." There's a story behind most of them, but in the interest of humor, I'm just putting this list up without any explanatory remarks.

About Me

I posted my disclaimer and this is the corollary of sorts: the "about me" page. Who cares? Most likely nobody but me (and a few people wasting time at work). On the off-chance that you need a small piece of useless trivia about me, well, perhaps this will help.


Dave sent me this link to an article, and I'll just give you his words on the topic: For your consideration: A funny, sad, and thought-provoking editorial about personal rights (from a creative arts point of view). Somewhat cynical, but hey… how can it not be that? And no, this isn't about Iraq or Osama […]

Rebuilding When Pinged

I'd like my archives (individual, daily, monthly, category) to be rebuilt every time an article gets a TrackBack. I did a search and found this article by Phil Ringnalda, but this sentence is preventing me from doing his hack: If you have a fair amount of faith in the speed of your rebuilds (or in […]

Linux and IT Staff

I expected my comments on a recent article to kick off a little flame war (typical of OSNews, Slashdot, etc.) but so far, after about 15 comments, it seems one of the better (keep in mind this is relative) discussions so far. The article was about Linux on the desktop, IT departments, and so […]

404 Search Function Code

A few days ago I promised that I'd post my 404 Search Function code. Here it is (below). Let me cover a few things first. Initially, I did a preg_match after having done a file(). The file() function returns an array. That's a bit costly, so I just wrap file() with an implode() to give […]
