    Prove this record company right…

    Another independant music distributer stepping up with a letter to the RIAA to say “You don’t speak for us” over at Go-Kart Records… These smaller companies stand to gain nothing from the RIAA actions, except maybe more attention on their products that are equally as good with nothing in the way of copy protection or […]

    Acquistions department

    So, a friday evening raid on the was poorly planned, yet surprisingly well executed, all things considered. We broke an Ikea wheelie filing cabinet in the process, but it wasn’t mine, so… no net loss in my books. As it is, we have too many of those little tiny under-desk cabinets anyhow, and a couple […]

    The Web is NOT the Internet

    Okay, I’m used to your standard person in the world being confused by the media into believing that The Web is The Internet. I really am. It pisses me off a bit, but I can forgive Aunt Helga for confusing The Web and The Email. What I can’t easily forgive is my fellow techs that […]

    by  • 10/6/2003 • geek • 1 Comment

    Wow. Blog spam is new for me, but today I recieved a comment on a two year old entry… The text of the message was “Interesting” and the URL they provided for their home page was http:// www. discount-life-insurance .us Who the hell finds term life insurance interesting? Oh yeah, I excercised my anti-advertising perogative and deleted the […]

    These two emails came in during the past 24 hours Stay hard for 72 hours Wight Loss Nothing good as far as the contents of the emails – nothing there to speak of. The subjects are pure gold though… 1. Staying hard for 72 hours would be painful. This is the kind of thing people […]

    Okay, next time I can peppers, I will wear gloves. I really thought that the only problems would stem from being dumb enough to touch my eyes while peeling hot peppers. Not so. My fingers burn. From what I can tell, I’ve basically got a chemical burn all over my hands. Ouch ouch. In other […]

    I’ve been meaning to add a little link shortening service since metamark’s site went down… I mean, it’s something I use on a daily basis to read links to people over the phone. Saves my sanity for later when I need it more. I’ve added a small shortening system at that’s based on the one […]

    Freaks and their spam.

    by  • 10/1/2003 • geek • 0 Comments

    I loves me some spam… especially the spam that completely ignores reality… “I love your site! It’d be a great match for my site about printer ink cartridges!” Yeah, that’s my idea of a great site to link to.

    Stop using @foo.ca addresses, jackass.

    by  • 9/28/2003 • geek • 0 Comments

    I’m sick of people using foo.ca in their return addresses when they post to newsgroups, etc. Feel free to sign up the yahoo.com address and the rogers.com address below for spam… I figure it’s only fair. Got an email from someone who didn’t alter the address when he hit reply to buy this freak’s binders. […]
