Apple put a cool montage of Steve Jobs up on their web site for the anniversary of his passing. Love him or hate him, he helped to change the world.

What happens when powerful lobbyists prevail? Just look to Japan and it's recording association. While the people who place pirated material on the Internet have been targeted by this assinine group (that's the RIAA in the U.S.) Japan is going after everyone, no matter how guilty or innocent.

This site is great for figuring out which candidates to (not) vote for

Punch in your zip and it will give you a rough idea who you will see on the election ballot in November.

I'm just happy Daniels is no longer on the ballot. God save Purdue. Now it's time for Tony Bennett to step down.

Well, I was planning to push out this critical Internet Exploder patch when it arrived this week, only to have to deal with a bad Sophos AV update that caused it to quarantine its own updater. After reading the bulletins Sophos released, and reading through the quarantine logs I was finally able to figure out the problem and develop an automated script to repair the damage done by Sophos, but not after screwing up the AV on my workstation. Now I've got to figure that out next week.

I'm glad it's Friday!

Lately every time I heard the word 'patent' it makes me think about Apple and Samsung, and about how us consumers are going to get railed. I've read a bit on it, which goes way beyond the U.S., and there is no innocent party (even 'do no evil' Google).
