  • Do You Write Backdoors?

    Slashdot asks if we write backdoors.

    If we did, would we tell you?

  • Excellent New Switch Parody

    Just when you thought switch parodies were over, Jeremy via Derek:

    Okay, this has to be the most amusing switch parody I’ve ever seen. I laughed my ass off.

    “What is it, the cloverleaf period thing?”

  • 64 Bit Windows For Opteron

    OS News:

    An even bigger endorsement comes from Microsoft Corp., which will begin shipping a 64-bit Windows server operating system for Opteron ahead of the chip’s launch. And in a break from the company’s traditional hand-in-hand relationship with Intel, Microsoft execs are talking up Opteron. They say the AMD chip helps companies that want to move at their own speed. “With 64 bits, some customers are going to want to ease into it,” says Bob O’Brien, group product manager for Windows Server 2003.”

    Read the article at BusinessWeek.

    I have a feeling that AMD’s x86-64 line, both Opteron and Athlon64, are going to really going to blast through both the server and desktop markets.  By the time they actually hit the streets, we should be able to run a 64 bit version of Windows and probably our choice of 64 bit linux distros.

    This is going to be fun.

  • Pictures From Washington Interns Gone Bad

    Sorry about the delay.  320×240 versions of the pictures that I took last night are now up.  They will reside at my Washington Interns Gone Bad Page.  Here are two of my favorites:

    That’s my older sister on the right.

    I realized last night that I know very little about the DC blogging scene.  I was talking to the director before the showing, and he said, “man, you sure talk about some high end shit.”  I guess.  Of course, the stuff I talk about is second grade spelling compared to some of the bloggers that I read.

    I think everything went well last night.  I’m still amazed that they were able to put this together on a sub-$1000 budget.  It could really be the next Clerks, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, or Rocky Horror Picture Show.  I mean it.

  • Back From Washington Interns Gone Bad

    I’m back. I told some people that I would put some pictures from tonight up on my weblog. I think that’s going to have to wait until the morning.

    Watch this space in the morning and I’ll also send out emails in the morning. The movie absolutely rocked. All with a $600 digital camera, an old school celeron, and Adobe Premiere/After Effects. Truly great stuff.

    Visions was really chill too. Details in the morning, pictures in the morning. Emails in the morning. It’s midnight.
