If your a nerd like me, you should be reading geek comics. My two favorites are:
both well done, current, and quite funny.
I’m not political, so here’s my political analysis geek style:
Sidenote: Of these, only the Bush Campaign seems to be using lots of negative campaign tactics. Even on the website it’s very obvious. Third parties use virtually none. Kerry has one ‘politically correct’ worded message on ‘Why Bush is wrong for America’. Bush makes it the focal point of his website these days. There seems to be more on Kerry than George. An interesting observation on tactics.
This isn’t scientific, or an endorsement of any candidate, just a quick little analysis on how parties view the internet, and web standards as well as open source platforms and comments as I feel appropriate..
2 out of 4 computers had problems today. Yea! Home computing is fun!!!
One was a relatively quick fix. Simple disk scan ended up fixing the permissions error, or whatever was wrong with it. The other (Bender, the file server), wasn’t so easy. Something ravished permissions on the System drive, causing tons of errors. Ended up formatting the System drive and doing a clean install. Easier than trying to fix it all, since that validate permissions option is a load of BS. As I type, I’m recompiling Perl 5.8.3(since Jaguar has 5.6.1). Overall, not to hard, since OS X comes so nicely packaged. Also a good excuse to update everything to more recent versions.
Previous uptime record is 28 days for that box. I think we can do better this time around
I did get a change to go workout though, so It’s not an ubergeek day.
Check out this video screen. That’s great. Imagine watching movies like that? Sounds pretty good. I’m hoping it will catch on. I could really use that.
