  • IBM Trading Halted

    Reuters [via NewsForge]:

    Shares of International Business Machines Corp. IBM.N were halted on Monday in over-the-counter trading, pending news.

    IBM said in a statement shortly after the halt it is the subject of an investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

    It said the probe is related to revenue recognition in 2000 and 2001.

    Crap.  I hate to see bad stuff happen to good companies.  I really really hope that their books are clean.

  • Animated Films

    The Motley Fool states the obvious: Finding Nemo rocked, Pixar rules, and Disney hasn’t put out a decent movie on their own in quite awhile.

    A visit to the Walt Disney Pictures site doesn’t look very promising either.  The preview for Brother Bear looked good, though it felt like a bad rehashing on The Lion King.  If I see another animated film this summer it will probably be Rugrats Gone WildThe Wild Thornberrys rule.

  • Whatevah!

    I’m glad to see that Liam Lynch‘s My United States of Whatever is popular in the mainstream.  The Screen Savers had a cool interview with him this morning.

    I’ve been running around saying “Whatevah!” and shouting the chorus of the song since I saw it on Sifl and Olly back in the 90’s.  So there.

    The normal people are finally catching up.

  • 3D0 Files for Chapter 11


    Game maker The 3DO Company has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California. The company is best known to Mac gamers as producers of the Heroes of Might & Magic strategy game series.

  • Application Domains

    Chris Brumme has a great piece up about application domains and other lowlevel bits about possible future directions for the .NET platform.

  • Finding Nemo

    We saw Finding Nemo last night.

    Much fun, go see it.

  • Python 2.2.3

    OSNews notes the release of Python 2.2.3.
