I play my music in the sun

So I just got through making it very clear that it was not at all easy to block Bittorrent across our network to someone who wanted to make it work. I read a white paper about it after last defcon, and it has evoolved much the way I expected it would. Good stuff, I might even start hosting my own torrents, who knows?

MS got caught with thier pants down - this is ironic, considering how small a deal it actually is, yet what a potential risk it exposes the company to if it were more than 4% of the code. I'd be happier if it were not just another targeted anti MS activity - that was what I loved about MyDoom - it stuck it to SCO for being such whining money grubbers.

Everyone, by now, has probably heard about the gay marraige thing in CA, but how many have talked about Kerry's stance on the matter? Bush is not being commited to backing the constitutional ban, but most think that he will. What drives me insane, like the whole JJ halftime bs, this is getting WAY too much press, when things like, oh, say, the fact that the majority now believe that Bush lied to get us into war, and that the public's confidence in the leader of the country has hit an all time low.

I wish people would just stop over obsessing who fucks who.

In other news, I WILL do my book reviews this weekend. I know I said never, but I really want to get them off my chest!

People are giving off some wierd vibes, must be that whole friday the 13th thing. Wherever you are, tonight, stay away from lakes that bubble.

this one is for zerogenius

That is all.

Gott im himmel.
You know bern, you raise an excellent point. I am STAGGERED daily by how it can possibly be that no one notices the 'bread and circuses' nature of news reporting around this country.

it is simply not to be borne, when one has to look at news sources outside the county you live in to get some semblance of actual information that doesn't involve an aging pop star trying to maintain relevance flashing at tit at what is arguably the largest annual gladitorial event in the country. To say nothing about the hypocrisy involved in saying that a breast becoming revealed is any less appropraite that MIKE GODDAMN DITKA hawking a product designed to ensure massive, long lasting erections. Someone, please, tell me the differance.

And then we have what is actually going on. Like massive politcal dishonesty, attempts to simply shred the constitution, limiting of personal freedoms in the name of security and so on. And the majority of people don't even know about it. Not because they can't find out, though i contend that is a part, but because they don't care. Even a little.

Case in point: I spent the majority of last week, after seeing a Confederate Federal Note that a friend brought into the bank to show us, teaching 3 co-workers about the Civil War. What about the Civil War, you may ask...Everything. One girl did not even know it occured. Or what it was about. The is a 24 year black woman. The other, a 27 year old white girl knew it happened, but nothing else. Ignorance is everywhere, and still we wonder why news is slanted...

I think it may be because people want it this way...not me, or you. but a lot of others...
