Personally, I’d pimp mine out with spinners and a five foot tall rear spoiler, but to each his own I say.
Is the worst piece of shit you ever did see. It’s super slow, bloated, and looks like the retarded monkey who decided on the design gave the job to a colorblind Amiga programmer.
Actually, I’ve never used any mobile phone/digicam/video cam maker’s software that was even close to being acceptable, but this Kies crap bundled with my Samsung Galaxy 5 is just laughably bad. Time to start up on my old desktop rig: FOUR TIMES longer than PhotoShop CS3.
This is just fucking unacceptable, shitty code. Shame on you, Samsung.
It was nice being able to sleep in a tent for a few nights this past year; I like camping and look forward to taking Max and Mina…
There are a couple of nice outdoors themed links I’ve been wanting to post, so:
Unforgettable Vacation In Karelia – Nice photo set from Finland or Russia, can’t tell which. (It’s hosted on English Russia, so watch for pop-ups.)
Then there’s this clip from a film called Alone in the Wilderness:
This kind of stuff just fascinates me – I often wonder if I’d be able to handle a month or two of solitude.
The guy’s homepage is here.
I’m acquiring the full video as I type this, so I may write about it again.
“The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want. The beauty of art and music is that it can last forever if people want it to. Thank you for sharing this experience. Your involvement will never be lost on us and we are truly grateful.”
–The White Stripes, February 2, 2011
We did this back in August of last year.
I was never a huge White Stripes fan, but the way they are ending is inspiring. I sure wish my favorite bands had gone out like this.

I was in a bank the other day, holding Max and waiting for Nam to finish renewing our car insurance, when a student from a while back spotted me and came in to say hi. Then she started tearing up and thanked me repeatedly for passing her last year, and pointed down to her bulging midsection.
“I’m six months pregnant,” she said, “and I just don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t graduated yet.”
I remembered her case very well – it had been a tough call, with various problems if I chose to help her, but in the end, I passed her. I dealt with the problems. I forgot about her class and started teaching new ones… and now she was here.
I was kind of embarrassed, but I squeezed Max closer, and looked her in the eyes and told her to be a good mom.
It’s 50,000% better to be told someone’s pregnant after you make a decision like that than before.
Readability has now launched as a subscription service, starting at $5 a month. I would pay for it if I browsed on my mobile more often, but $60 a month is a bit too much for me… I like the idea a lot, but I’m not willing to pay that much for it.
I’m very grateful they’re keeping free the Chrome plug-in around.
