Funny Superbowl commercials! 楽しみ！
I’ve discovered a internet radio station that plays my favorite kind of dance music, hard dance. I would LOVE to go to a night club that plays this kind of music. It’s so full of energy, you can’t help but dance.
I say that whenever you get a fake e-mail from a phishing site, go to it and enter totally bogus and insulting information. Make sure to take a few cracks at the guy’s mom while your at it. Although if you are using Windows it’s probably not a good idea.
For some reason, I feel bothered when I see christians around my age. I wonder why that is.
I’ve upgraded Chiaki to Ubuntu 06.10. I did a clean install this time because my 06.6 installation was pretty old, and had a good number of custom packages installed. Luckily for me I found out that a lot of people have been having problems doing dist-upgrades. I think 90% of those problems are because of people using non-official packages. Perhaps apt should be a little smarter about alien packages and ask the user to delete them before performing the upgrade.
The installation went nearly flawlessly. The only thing I had to do this time was install and configure 915resolution to get it to do widescreen. The broadcom drivers work a little faster this time, but still have a sucky range. That really sucks because I want to use WPA but my orinocco card driver doesn’t support it. Also the network manager applet wasn’t installed by default… I can’t remember if it was installed by default in 06.6. It really should be.
Of the upgraded programs I have to say Gaim 2.0 beta 3 is the worst. Although 1.5.0 is old and buggy, but it’s way too early for Gaim 2.0 still. I have to give the gaim developers some negative karma for not keeping their stable release usable.
Firefox 2.0 is pretty good however, it boots up faster than 1.5 and pulls off it’s new theme while not looking out of place with the rest of the desktop.
On a side note I’ve been looking for new music recently, and have been checking out Jamendo There’s some pretty good stuff there. It’s really nice to see how big it is. I love websites who use open-source software to do good (Bittorrent, eMule, Ogg vorbis).
Also in other news I bought a rice-cooker today. It was really expensive but it works great!
The main feature that google office has that sets it apart from all the other office suits is built in revision control. I wish OpenOffice.org or Abiword could do that.
22:10 Water is a little software than they’ll have you think.
After scanning rather quickly through my Aapache access.log I found a line that really stood out.
18.104.22.168 – – [01/Oct/2006:15:05:04 -0400] “GET /rms.html HTTP/1.1” 200 1390 “http://search.msn.com/results.aspx?q=buts&mkt=es-US&form=QBRE&go.x=9&go.y=14” “Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1)” “-”
The interesting part is the “q=buts” part. That means that the user searched for the word “buts” and was linked to my page about Richard Stallman’s talk that he gave in Pittsburgh. So I naturally went on to live.com and tried it myself. Lo and behold it was right there on the second page of the results. I wonder what horribly broken algorithms the Live team is using in their search engine.
