Road Trip!

Something to do while waiting for the database to come back up.

One.  Google Maps seems uninclined to trace a route across the Panama Canal, despite there being at least four road crossings.  So I couldn't do Anchorage to Ushuaia as I'd originally planned.

Two.  Not really recommended to travellers unless you are accompanied by a TV crew and an armed escort, but interesting.

Three.  For that perfect combination of relaxed safety and utter insanity.

Bzzz! Wrong, But Thanks For Playing!

The correct answer is "Four and a half billion years."  "Four billion years", "Five billion years", and even just "Billions of years" are also acceptable.

"Look at me, I'm a weasel" is not correct.

P.S.  I've been sicks with the flus for the past weeks, hence the lacks of postings.  About halfway betters nows, aparts from the coughings ups of buckets of phlegms.

Calibration Day

Today we find exactly how hopelessly skewed the mainstream media is.*  Ace was commenting on a recent CNN poll that showed Obama and Romney in a tie - with party affiliation at D+11.  Which is crazy; you'd have to have Democrat turnout at levels higher even than 2008, and at the same time have Independents splitting 2:1 in favour of Romney.

The polls and news reports are wrong, we know that.  Today's the day we find out how wrong.

Update: Less wrong than I might have hoped, based on early returns.  Mmf.

Update: The results are in, and while the polls may have been wrong, they weren't that wrong.  It's going to be a long four years.

Meanwhile, in Australia....  Uh, we had a horse race.  With actual horses.

* Is?  Are?  Stupid language.

Older Than She Looks

From Wikipedia:
Rhodopis (Greek: Ροδώπις) is the original ancient version of the "Cinderella" story. First recorded in the 1st century BCE by the Greek historian Strabo, it is considered to be the oldest Cinderella story.
Rhodopis wore gilded, rather than glass, slippers, and the story features rather fewer pumpkins than the familiar version, but it's clearly the same tale.

Matias Duarte, Android User Experience Lead At Google, Explains Why Nexus Devices Lack Expandable Storage

It turns out that it's actually very simple.

He's lazy and incompetent and thinks Android users are idiots.

Good to see that question cleared up.
