Michael Schiavo: Pimp Dat Book

Michael Schiavo says he never considered divorce because he wanted to stay true his marital vows, specifically "till death do us part." It's good husbands stay true to their marital vows. I wonder if Michael's devotion to his wife included starting a family with another woman. It could be Michael and Terri wrote their own vows, and it included infidelity. Umm, no.

I think husbands like Michael give marriage and fidelity a bad name. How can he claim to be keeping the wishes of his wife while running around with another woman?

The report raises a new issue I never heard about Terri's condition, blindness.
An autopsy determined Terri Schiavo suffered irreversible brain-damage and even blindness...

Blindness? First, they told us the video of her eyes following the balloon was reactive and not a conscious effort. Now they tell us that reactive behavior was done with blind eyes.

I guess none of this matters because some doctors declared her brain dead. I think the first couple of sentences in this report shows how wrong the "experts" can be.
Doctors pronounced Ethan Myers brain dead after a car accident dealt the 9-year-old a severe brain injury in 2002. After he miraculously awoke from a nearly month-long coma, doctors declared he would never again eat on his own, walk or talk.

The mind is adaptable by using previously unused portions of the brain, and there is plenty of empty space open for rent! God only knows where Terri would be today had Michael provided proper therapy to Terri. How can I question the devotion of a husband committed to see his wife till the end? :-\

Gve me my broadband pipeline!

Comcast and Verizon are duking it out for who will get the fastest service. In the mean time, TimeWarner has upgraded their service to 7Mbps, and Comcast is offering 8Mbps service. Isn't competition wonderful? :-)

Great Scott! 32GB Flash drive.

Requiem for the hard drive. Samsung unveils 32GB Flash-based 'HDD killer' Now Windows can begin to realize the benefits of load time from an IC which the Atari ST computers saw a decade ago. TOS, its operating system, loaded from integrated chips.


[adult swim] free onlne!

Adult Swim will broadcast online for free on Fridays from 11pm ET to 6AM ET. The line-up is pretty good. I think they need to make sure Space Ghost Coast to Coast is aired even if only re-runs. Spare us Futurama, a show that delivers one Dubble Bubble jokes at a snail like pace. They follow-up Futurama with Family Guy, which is the ideological opposite of Futurama. It delivers all the jokes of a 1,001 joke book in 20 minutes at a Tommy Gun pace.

It's good to see TV moving to the internet. It gives me less reason to pay for premium cable. So much entertainment on the internet and so little time.

Very Cool Sidewalk Art

Some of these look so real. The 3D effect is impressively implemented in 2D.


Three FREE Zip Tools

Many people use WinZip, but it is commercial software. The nag screen can get annoying fast. Why bother? Here are three Zip utilities that support not only zip, but the new 7-zip compress format, which compresses better than Zip. Check these out!

Firefox and Memory

There have been complaints written about Firefox's (Fx) memory usage. Some say it's a multi-platform issue, so Mac and Linux users, listen up! :-)

If you notice Fx taking a lot of memory, try running in safe mode. I love Fx's extensions. I use 13 of them myself. However, not all extensions are the same. Some might leak memory. Run in safe mode and see if things change. I feel memory usage will be heavily scrutinized in the next point release.

So what extensions am I running? Here's a list:

A number of these extensions are disabled because I have not went out to find a compatible 1.5 version yet. The Update function is nice. But if an author's update feed isn't working correctly, you have to go find the latest the old fashioned way, go to the extension's home page and find out.

Two other places I go to find the latest extensions is The Extensions Mirror (my favorite) and of course Mozilla's Add-ons site.

Mobile phones with 8GB of storage?!

With audio playback ability and 8 gigabytes of storage, this might be goodbye for mp3 players.

Here we go again. Aspartame kills.

They said it rots your brains. They said it causes brain tumors and multiple sclerosis. Now aspartame causes cancer. Where's my Diet Coke?


Mmm.... Chocolate.

A WebMD report says chocolate milk can make a good sports drink.
Now it appears that the six-time gold medalist may have been onto something. A new study shows that plain old chocolate milk may be as good -- or better -- than sports drinks like Gatorade at helping athletes recover from strenuous exercise.

Sounds good to me. Chocolate... my precious, precious chocolate.
