One of my biggest pet peeves is when people refer to all cops as "police" or "the good guys" etc. There are good and bad people EVERYWHERE and just because the few good cops are the ones who get the most publicity doe NOT mean that MOST are like that.

Just installed Android on my HP Touchpad. This video saved me when I was having problems on one of the steps.

Bit complex getting the Android Marketplace setup on it (instructions totally missing from the main place to install the android mod), but done. I keep trying to upswipe to close apps though!

Interesting day - went to bumfu*# part of Pearland to try and locate some misappropriated property (third try and it was a strike out), then had some pretty good BBQ and sides, then a nice long stroll with the wife, got home and had a piece of great carrot cake, now catching up on reading whilst the wife naps with the pups.

Seems to be a bit of corruption at the PSRB, a board appointed by the Texas Supreme Court that regulates & certifies Private Civil Process Servers in Texas. First off, over half the board is composed of members/directors of an "association" of Texas Process Servers that makes most of it's money offering classes to teach about process serving (and crappy classes at that). So what does the board, particularly those members try and do? Get a new rule tripling the amount of class work/training needed (not in quality though - just requiring to take the same inane course every year instead of every three). The newest screw to the public: the member of the board that is a Constable (actual law enforcement people that also serve process, albeit poorly) wants all private process servers to get a $5000 bond. Of course the Constables don't have to get that.
Seems all these conflicts of interest would violate the Sunset Laws and various other ethical laws in our state. But since the Texas Supreme Court appointed them and governs them, nothing is being done.
Kinda reminds you of Louisiana and Chicago style governing.

Some of the things that get me is that Constables have no real training on process service, are so crappy at it (which is why the private sector popped up), and don't need any special certifications or anything. And most of the problems with improper service and lies on attempted service notices are from Constables and not private servers. Yet we get this corrupt crap placed on us.

Satyr actually introduced me to this duet I think. Now Wil Wheaton does a post - awesome.

You're welcome.

EDIT: LOL This is unavailable in my country, apparently. Now I know what it's like to be Canadian and trying to watch YouTube.

Here's an alt: Rodrigo y Gabriela "Tamacun" live @ Eurockéennes

Never watched that one.
Reading his posts, he appears to be a self - absorbed ass.
What a disappointment!

Well, tried to find some HP Touchpads this morning - everywhere in Houston was sold out except for Radio Shack, and they insist the price lowering was for Canada only and not the US. Even HPs online site sold out by noon. Almost scored 2 on Samsclub.com, but they emptied while I was in the shopping cart. Dang.

If you want to understand the magnitude of the recent debt and budget reduction actions agreed to by Congress and the President, this non-partisan example really puts it in perspective.

U.S. income: $2,170,000,000,000
Federal budget: $3,820,000,000,000
New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000
National debt: $14,271,000,000,000
Recent budget cut: $ 38,500,000,000 (about 1 percent of the budget)

It helps to think about these numbers in terms that we can relate to. Therefore, let's remove eight zeros from these numbers and pretend this is the household budget for the fictitious Jones family:

Total annual income for the Jones family: $21,700
Amount of money the Jones family spent: $38,200
Amount of new debt added to the credit card: $16,500
Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710
Amount cut from the budget: $385

The Joneses will never get that credit card paid off - they're not even paying the interest. So much for "keeping up with the Joneses"
