6. Oil prices... May 6, 2008, 11:42 Dan =0)
 
I'm not going to start a political rant at all. I'm just amazed that the rate at which prices have gone up seems extraordinarily high.

http://www.yahoo.com/s/874464

Whatever the cause, I'm just slightly awestruck, and the wallet hurts a little more as price / barrel goes from $119 to $122 over the course of the last four or so hours...

Time to invest in a bicycle methinks. And a shorter commute, naturally.

1. Controversial Pro-IP Act sails through May 1, 2008, 23:43 Dan =0)
 
I am absolutely disgusted by this.

The copyright system as it is is broken, and now the government wants to impose higher penalities for these screwed-up laws?

Follow the money...

Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Blue!

Incidentally, a friend of mine ("Steven" in this case, not "Stephen" ) tied the knot on Saturday... I forgot how hectic preparing for a wedding, even in a non-groomsman-type assisting role, can be...

In any case, congrats again and hope for many more for you to come!

There are some users who have in excess of 4GB PSTs.... archives included. Some people prefer to, or are required to, keep all their mail for reference.

Very nice.

I have neither an XBOX360 or PS3, though... Neither do my roommates. I was planning on saving up for this, however:

Hey Bats,

I guess I've been under a rock - or, out paintballing and camping - over the last few days, but I was wondering what the countdown was for?

11. Re: Star Wars quiz Apr 15, 2008, 14:35 Dan =0)
 
8 out of 10 as well, though could have easily been worse, I had some lucky guesstimates.

I'm ashamed to say 4 out of 10 here...

As for taxes, got those filed a couple months back and had the returns electronically deposited. Relatively straightforward for me.

I like the "Vintage Edition".

Same here. I actually wouldn't put it past a modder to try doing something akin to that.

Relatedly, I have an (~20-years?) old 15"-ish Hitachi CRT TV that I'd considered gutting and fitting it with mini-ITX (or micro-ATX if it will fit) mobo and hardware. I just need to find a 15" LCD to cannibalise. The rest of the hardware's relatively easy to come by. Newegg doesn't seem to have much in the way of mini-ITX, and Jetway I'm not too sure about; has anyone had experience with mini-ITX system builds? If I do get to it, I promise to take pictures of the process and post it.

but Al Jourgensen is calling it quits.

Just when I'm getting into Ministry...

edit: and does anyone want to punch Tyra Banks in the grill? someone shut that bitch up.

I would gladly pay her to not make any more appearances in the media, if I could afford it. But I can't, so I won't. I just don't see what people see in her, really.

edit: Bats, agreed. My wondering is why a signification portion of the other 5,999,999,997 people on the planet watch her despite this, or in spite of this.

2. T-Mobile vs. Engadget iMobile Apr 1, 2008, 08:35 Dan =0)
 
Apparently this is no joke: T-Mobile is going after Engadget iMobile for happening to use the same exact logo color.

http://www.yahoo.com/s/846879

How can this be upheld? More to the point, how is this confusing? Are there so many people who would be confusing Engadget's iMobile blog with T-Mobile? Just wondering here...

EDIT: Snowball - wow. Pros: Quick to load, easy to play (two buttons!). Cons: Severely outdated graphics. Really fricking boring as all heck. April fools on me?

How about a sort of "steampunk" wild west? That might be putting it a bit too closely to the Will Smith vehicle.

I believe they were looking for the prefix, "anti-".

or "con-"...

EDIT: There was a funny saying pinned up on a former workmate's cubicle wall at a prior job which stated:

If the opposite of "Pro-" is "Con-", then the opposite of "Progress" is...

So the kid gets marked off for putting "noob" as the opposite to "pro" but not for putting "live" as the opposite to "death"? Death is a noun. Live is a verb or adjective. Stupid bastard.

Just as "hopefull" should be "hopeful". I would take off points for misspelling a word; this makes me wonder if 1. the person being quizzed really is that bright or 2. this was somehow faked?

I still don't get how the FCC can hand out huge fines for indecency without defining what indecency is. I mean, I do get how they can do that so maybe I just wish it made sense.

Oh, define it they do, but it's so broad and vague that there is some a lot of leeway as to its interpretation.

Nope. Actually, I have none of their albums, just one song (Dancing Queen) off some compilation album...

How can Americans be so afraid of nuclear power, and still drive cars every day?

Good question. Leaving out that everyone drives cars anyway, the main reason I hear from others against nuclear power is not (just) the possibility of a metldown or some sort of Chernobyl-like disaster, but the question of where to put the spent fuel, as well if there are other (radioactive) waste byproducts in the process of fission.

Not that I'm a scientist, so I'm afraid I don't have much of an idea of where to begin in lessening concern of what I'll call a radiation event. I figure, at the very least, that modern reactors are far more reliable than the older ones, by nature of technological progress...

Out of curiosity, what -does- happen with the waste - whatever form that might be - and might that cause any problems, ecologically/biologically speaking?

Dan =0)

EDIT: Personally, I think if reactors have come to a point where they're 99.9% stable and are efficient producers of electricity in comparison to other means of production, then I say why not? Apart from the initial cost to develop a reactor, of course... EDIT2: ...or to maintain them. (What's the MTBF on those things anyway? Not that I'd want to be anywhere near one if and when it happens... Heh.)
