  • Unknown Weird Stuff

    CNet and others are noting weird things happening on the internet:

    Worm? Trojan? Attack tool? Network administrators and security experts continue to search for the cause of an increasing amount of odd data that has been detected on the Internet.

    Any ideas?

  • When Good Sites Get Swallowed

    While listening to Prozzak this morning, I was reminded that I used to get my obscure Canadian music from HMV online.  Their web site rocked, it was easy to use, they had all of the Canadian stuff that you can’t get in the US (well you can, like a year after it’s released), and they were cheap.

    It was great, they always did their pricing in Canadian dollars, so my order would always be several dollars less in USD.

    It had been awhile since I had visited HMV’s website.  I used to get Much Music on cable/satellite and kept it on in the background all the time.  I really liked their programming (they actually played music, unlike MTV), their VJ’s, their attitude and their music.  It’s been awhile since I’ve had access to Much and so I’m not as in touch with the Canadian music scene as I used to be.

    I was horrified when I went to this morning.  It’s gone.  Do you know what’s there in it’s place?  I’ll give you one hint:

    There goes one of my favorite online stores.

  • !rain

    It wasn’t raining this morning.

    I opened the windows and moonroof of the car, put some Prozzak into the CD player and hauled ass down 95.

    It was nice.

  • Fink, Gentoo, DarwinPorts Join Forces

    Here’s a press release that I have no problem posting:

    June 20, 2003 — The Fink, Gentoo,and DarwinPorts projects are pleased to announce the formation of a cooperative development alliance forged to facilitate delivery of freely available software to Mac OS X. Under this new alliance, the projects will share information and coordinate efforts for porting software to Apple’s Mac OS X and Darwin operating systems. Members of the alliance will share information using the Web site, which will provide a home for this cooperative effort.

    As an aside, is there any way to disable the annoying <!–StartFragment–> That I always seem to get when cutting in Moz/Netscape and pasting in IE?

  • Zawodny Blogging for a Year

    Congrats to Jeremy Zawodny for one year of blog.  It seems like there was a surge of people starting blogs around June/July last year.  My 1 year is coming up in just a few weeks.
