  • Happy fake birthday #Jesus! Hope you're not mad about the whole winter solstice thing #
  • After the media swallowed Bush Admin's false assertion that SH/Iraq were funding AQ hook & sinker, is it a surprise people want alt media? #

  • Our church fathers were very prescient in their drive to boil every giant theological construct down to one word. Twitter thanks them. #
  • They forgot to mention that setting up your own Launchpad implementation would involve a large portion of your life. #ubuntu #
  • Bedtime! #
  • I can do a really good James Macdonald impression. It mostly involves — LISTEN — yelling and making baseless inflammatory statements. #
  • For Indians, "no" means "yes". They'll proceed to bargain you down from no to yes. Start with this assumption. It's all good haggling. #
  • Cleaning out other people's inboxes. That's the shit. #

  • As I get older I learn how much cooler it is to go to bed early. Also nose hair. Wicked cool, dude. #

  • This is my music player trajectory: WinAmp > iTunes > WinAmp > Songbird > WinAmp > FooBar2000. And I freaking LOVE FooBar2000. #
  • Installing Apache. #ubuntu #
  • The Kubuntu boxes we're running here at work (we're at 50% Linux deployment for desktops, iirc) are truly set-it-and-forget-it. <3 #ubuntu #
