Somewhat like Dan Savage (article), I've had a hard time believing that someone as hateful as Rick Santorum would actually run for president. On the other hand, there seem to be a fairly large number of are-you-shitting-me names that have come up :(

Found this gem in a microsoft support article from 2006: "Moving files between computers on a floppy disk (the so-called "sneakernet") is a thing of the past." While I agree that the floppy-disk sneakernet is a thing of the past, I believe microsofts's network technology has caused it to be replaced with the USB flash drive sneakernet.

boston bus tracking
Boston has bus tracking. It is not perfect but it's pretty cool. Being able to go outside 60 seconds before the bus arrives makes the weather significantly more tolerable ;)

forced computer shutdown device
I want a box with a big red "shut down in X minutes" button, which I can plug my computer in to so that if it's taking it's time shutting down I can hit this button and leave the office, knowing that in a few minutes the computer will be off whether it wants to be or not. A key switch to abort the countdown would be nice, as would a way to adjust the duration prior to hitting the button. Anyone know if this exists?

Reasons I hate outlook:

The text formatting has always been totally fucked up, but in the new (2007) version, it's really hard to find the 'plain text' formatting option. I always look in Message or Format Text, but it's a series radio buttons in options (except disguised not to look like radio buttons).

Apparently it feels the need to scroll around for me while I'm typing.

Current Mood: grumpygrumpy

This is my favorite line so far. If nothing else, it makes me feel better about our codebase at work.

If line 38 is $125,100 or less and you did not provide housing to a Midwestern displaced individual, multiply $3,650 by the number on line 6d. Otherwise, see page 37.

time to support marriage equality!
http://fightbackpac.com/ Support equality in New York TODAY (major deadline on March 1).
This is important if you live in NY.
This is also important if you live in any other state.
(This is actually important no matter where you live, but I think you do have to be a US citizen in this particular case).
