Out of the Blue

Happy Chinese New Year! Today marks the start of the Year of the Rooster, though I'll be writing Year of the Monkey on my checks for weeks still (I'll never get tired of that one). Apparently this is a Green Wood Chicken New Year if you delve further into it.

My New Year's Eve, as it were, was spent in a local town court, paying a debt to society that my right foot ran up for me a couple of months ago. As always, Officer Trooper was pleasant and professional, and my answer to his question of how fast I thought I was going ("probably a bit faster than you wrote me up for") seemed to be the correct one based on its honesty, and my plea bargain ended up as failure to observe a traffic sign, rather than speeding.

I have a further debt to pay today, as Dr. Toothy wanted me back, muttering something about not liking the state of my gums, which is not what you want to hear by a long stretch.

Finally, thanks Dan for sending this troubleshooting page: Flash TechNote - Macromedia Flash Player uses all CPU cycles during playback, which describes the 100% CPU problem some users are encountering here as illusory, saying that Flash will happily relinquish CPU cycles to applications that request them. Clearly the description of how these ads (the Splinter Cell ad has been specifically earmarked as problematic) are bogging down some users' systems demonstrates that this is not working as described. A reader named Majid described the problem as attributable to "poorly optimized" Flash, something echoed by Chris from AMDZone, so while still seeking out further info on this, I will look into this optimization question.

I know this is a bit old, but what is this guy on? The people who worked in the WTC are "little Eichmanns"?

Churchill also spoke of the "gallant sacrifices" of the "combat teams" that struck America.

Hey, from a purely theoretical point of view, the terrorists had a great plan that exposed several weaknesses in the US regarding terrorism/security measures, but where does he get off on slandering innocent civies working in the buildings? I don't follow his logic (or lack thereof) at all. What did they do that he himself isn't doing? They go to work, do their private-sector (non-military) job, and go home. Other than him being a professor at a university, what's the difference? Does he consider himself and every other American a "little Eichmann" as well? WTF?

As far as the freedom of speech arguement goes, I think some may argue that he might appear to be representing the school, as well, but I don't know the details of his statements or the context and whether he might have seemed to represent the university (would he have been making the speeches if he wasn't a professor?).

I guess I don't know all the details, be he seems like a whack-job.

Who elected you leader of this outfit?

I figured it should be the one with the capacity for abstract thought. But if that ain't the consensus view, then hell, let's put it to a vote.
