Nobody Loves Me

I was wondering why, whenever a new mail virus-worm thingy breaks loose and wreaks havoc across the internet (or "web" as the Australian Broadcasting Corporation would have it), causing Windows and Exchange administrators to tear out what little hair they have left and Linux users to wet themselves laughing, I don't get any.

Does no-one love me?

Could it be that most people I know are not virus-worm-thingy-spreading idiots so that I am at least two stages removed from the major pool of infection?

Or could it be - oh look - that my spam filter is merrily gobbling them all up. Dozens of them. How amusing.

You do love me after all!

The Fall Of Amaravati

I was wondering who would be the next victim.

Turns out it's Marc Miyake, who explains why Manga rocks and Amekomi sucks.

So sad to see a brave man fall.

Next!

Some posts just write themselves:
The response to the Turkey & Gravy Jones Soda has been incredible. Thank you for your interest and patience in regards to this soda. We apologize if you were not able to get your hands on the Turkey & Gravy Jones Soda. Since this was a premium edition with limited quantities in Michigan and Washington region, we sold out pretty quickly. However, due to the huge interests from our consumers, we will be better prepared to meet everyone's need next year. All the sales from Turkey & Gravy soda will be going to Toys for Tots. If you sign up for our free Jones Soda newsletter, you will get advance notice of future premium flavors.
No, really.

(Thanks to Sam Kington in Tim Blair's comments.)

The Penguin Baseball thingy seems to keep disappearing from the web, so I snarfed a copy...

And here it is!

Quality Time

I didn't post anything today because I was spending quality time with the grandkids.

Welcoming Trixie

This is a long weekend for me, since January 26th is Australia Day. In honor of this, Australia's 103rd year as an independent nation, and inspired by Jen[Pete]'s post on 100 Years Ago, I've decided to try a little experiment. Please bear with me, as this may get a little weird.

Let's get the ball rolling, shall we? I'd like you all to welcome my granddaughter Trixie, who will be taking over blogging responsibilities for the rest of the weekend.

Take it away, Trixie Misa!

Advance Warning

Your objective is simple: Widespread misery

Your motive is a little bit more complex: To show them all

Stage One:

To begin your plan, you must first seduce a Wealthy Heiress. This will cause the world to sit up and take notice, stunned by your arrival. Who is this Evil Genius? Where did they come from? And why do they look so good in classic black?

Stage Two:

Next, you will steal the Pacific Ocean. This will cause countless hordes of Mad Scientists to flock to you, begging to do your every bidding. Your name will become synonymous with fuzzy bunnies, as lesser men whisper your name in terror.

Stage Three:

Finally, you will covertly move your Needlessly Big Weather Machine, bringing about pain, suffering, the usual. This will all be done from a Underground Secret Headquarters of Doom, an excellent choice if we might say. These three deeds will herald the end, and the citizens of this planet will have no choice but to elect you their new god.

Trust us, it'll all come together in the end.

Get your own evil plan!

(Found at Not Quite Tea and Crumpets who got it from our very own Rocket Jones. I read that one, Ted, only I didn't have time to try all the links. Really I did!)

Nothing New Under The Sun

The new MuNu sever has locked up again, and my F drive has turned into a pumpkin.

How long does Windows XP take to chkdsk a 240GB pumpkin, anyway?

Make The Time, George

Mitch H. of Blogfonte links to an interview with George Soros. Mitch finds the money quote:
Unfortunately, I don't have time to read; I only have time to write.
Says it all, really.

If you don't have the time or the patience to read the whole interview, do at least look at Mitch's analysis.

I don't have time to read; I only have time to write.

That's A Hardware Problem

It would appear that I was right and it was a flaky disk drive after all. Drive has now been replaced, the old Samsung swapped out for a Seagate.

I'm now writing a 40GB file just to give it a little exercise. If that works, I'll consider the problem fixed.

Oh, yes:

How many programmers does it take to change a lightbulb?
None - that's a hardware problem.

Update: 40GB file, no problems. Now I'll just make a copy of that...

Update: Assertion failure in __journal_remove_journal_head() at journal.c:1854: "buffer_jbd(bh)"

Not what I wanted to hear.
