Funny and true: "Having your own domain name system may sound exciting, but I'm sure you've already guessed the problems associated with this. Firstly, the fact that you have to set up multiple computers all over the world just to match the names in your system to numeric addresses already points to the cost involved. This is not an undertaking for someone trying to save $10."
- Christopher Heng, thesitewizard.com
Can I be my own domain name registrar? Can I create my own domain name system so that I do not need to pay a domain registrar?

Some irreverent drivel about time travel, twins and a movie starlet, inspired by the 10 random words of this week's Creative Copy Challenge.

Don't say I didn't warn you ...

Thought for Thursday:
"The fact that we have something called memory and the fact that we have something called storage is really an artifact of the technology...Ideally you’d just have a big pool of your stuff."
-Bill Leszinske, Intel’s NVM (non-volatile memory) Solutions Group
Intel storage czar Bill Leszinske has a thing or two to say about the future of drive technology, and it's all about fast.

Someone Said "Ask and..." Anyway, this post by +Mitch Mitchell is very interesting. And, before you ask, this is not a re-incarnation piece! (You'll have to read the post to understand that...)
My quest to become a top 50 blogger begins now.

People say the darnedest things:

DIY.StackExchange Question: Caulk or Grout the Base of a Toilet?

Answer from DMoore:

NEITHER !!!

I don't care what code says. I have had 40+ houses inspected the past 15 years, never caulked one toilet, never had one inspector ask me to. I have had a few point it out and say they don't either but that is it.

Points:

caulk or grout does not stabilize your toilet. A flat surface does this. If your surface is not flat there are things you can buy to help under the toilet. Using grout to do this is ludicrous. It will eventually fail and be a mess in your bathroom. This is really half-assed

my first issue with caulk is that it would hide small leaks. I want to know right away if human waste was leaking into my house - don't care if it is a few drops a month. To me this is more than enough reason to never do it.

but then point number two is how do you expect your caulk to look after 6 months in your bathroom. Better buy yellow caulk. There is nothing worse than having guests over using your guest bathroom that your kids use seeing pee pee caulk.

There are some dumb codes in the book, some dumber than this one. No decent inspector would ever enforce crap like this as he wouldn't enforce the 50 other dumb codes in the book. I remember asking the last inspector that pointed it out, "Would I caulk it if the bathroom was carpet?" He says, "Who would carpet a bathroom?" I say, "Who would caulk a toilet?"
