Matt Drachenberg has been blogging for two whole years and has never had an Instalanche.
A little one will do.
That is not very nice. Not nice at all.
[Funny though. — Ed]
My Music is now back on line for your listening pleasure.

The next edition of the Best of Me Symphony will be appearing right here at Ambient Irony. (The current Symphony is now up at The Owner's Manual.)
So if you have a post that you think is good, and is over two months old and languishing in your archives - or if you know a blogger who does - you can submit it to email@example.com.
Be the best that you can be!
He does, he does.

"It is ingrained in the Korean psyche that China is the big brother," said Samuel Koo, president of Arirang TV, South Korea's English-language broadcaster. "But Chinese-Korean relations were far from being an unmitigated love affair. We used to ship to them tens of thousands of virgins every year."Just remember to raise the white sails this time.

It tilts. It swivels. It has tension adjustment for the tilt thingy. It has gas-operated lift, just like a rocket-hamster fed on beans. It's upholstered with elegant black leather. It has armrests where I can rest my arms. It has little wheels, too, five of them!
And I put it together myself!
Answer: Very probably.

I don't know why.
But Ad Report Card on Slate gives them an A.

(Oh, and the Wrong Bananas song is good too.)

I was wondering why I had 4632 HTTP 403 errors in my log file.

I've fixed my archives.
Note for MT users: If you change your main index from index.html to, say, index.shtml, all your archive pages change too. If you don't do a rebuild, this will cause problems.

Furthermore, the systematic use of complex symbols suffices to account for an abstract underlying order. With this clarification, the speaker-hearer's linguistic intuition does not readily tolerate a corpus of utterance tokens upon which conformity has been defined by the paired utterance test. We will bring evidence in favor of the following thesis: relational information is not subject to problems of phonemic and morphological analysis. Thus the appearance of parasitic gaps in domains relatively inaccessible to ordinary extraction may remedy and, at the same time, eliminate the traditional practice of grammarians. For one thing, the natural general principle that will subsume this case delimits nondistinctness in the sense of distinctive feature theory.The Chomskybot
If you've ever had to wade through pseudo-scientific babble in any field, you know how accurate that is.
Let us continue to suppose that any associated supporting element raises serious doubts about irrelevant intervening contexts in selectional rules. To provide a constituent structure for T(Z,K), most of the methodological work in modern linguistics is not to be considered in determining the traditional practice of grammarians. However, this assumption is not correct, since the appearance of parasitic gaps in domains relatively inaccessible to ordinary extraction suffices to account for an important distinction in language use. It appears that a descriptively adequate grammar can be defined in such a way as to impose nondistinctness in the sense of distinctive feature theory. I suggested that these results would follow from the assumption that this selectionally introduced contextual feature may remedy and, at the same time, eliminate problems of phonemic and morphological analysis.It's scary!
