“Isn’t it about time we elected political leaders that have sense enough not to pee on electric fences?” Love the Blagovich actor trying to pee on the electric fence.

Maybe it is time we elected political leaders who have more sense than to make a video about men peeing on electric fences.

Decided to install Linux Mint 12 LDME (Debian Edition) on my computer. It was really easy and I was surprised at how everything seems to work out of the box in a graphical desktop. Linux has come a long way since the 2000s when I was running Debian previously.

Stand with me against harmful regulations and for the protection of free speech.

I signed up for http://codeYear.com/ which I found out from +James Stansell. I've been writing a small tool to parse and analyze a RSS feed of content because the coders at work are too busy fixing or improving our existing CMS. However I found I know the basics of the language but not more complex things like data structures and how to parse them. I can probably think of at least 5 more tools which would be great to have. Hope to learn a lot of stuff.

Sometimes that is all you need to do and the trolls come out in spades.

Love St. Augustine's characterization of a man with a beard.

"The beard signifies the courageous; the beard distinguishes the grown men, the earnest, the active, the vigorous. So that when we describe such, we say, he is a bearded man."

The Lytro looks like a cool new camera which captures light rays instead of pixels. The technology looks really cool and might be the next generation of cameras.

Trying out Amazon's Cloud Player to store all of my music. Here are some first impressions.
Good: Amazon recognized that some of the music was downloaded from their store. Their upload program automatically got all of my music from the WMP library.
Bad: Had to install yet another program just to upload the music and play it. Pandora has a music player in a web browser and backup services can do uploads from a web browser. Why do I need to install another program to just upload files?

All me maties have a good day talking like a pirate. ARRRRR
