NASA Making life?!?

Here's one for the X-files. We went to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and took the tours et all. We had a great time. On one of the buses we kept noticing some strange message flashing on the screen. Seemingly in no specific order, in between tour-videos. I was finally able to snap a picture of it. Lo and behold what does it say?
Nasa Mystery Picture for Conspiracy nuts
"One of our primary objectives at NASA is to MAKE life"

Yes. Not FIND, but MAKE! >>Keep Reading: Full Post and Comments

Office Cubicle Prank II

Some new Dell's came in (it's the end-of-the-year-ordering-spree). And what do you do with a bunch of Dell boxes in an office full of cubicles? Why you wall-off an entrance!
Here's a close-up of the note that was put up:
What's even funnier is this guy is the first one to arrive at the office in the morning. A good half hour before everyone else. So he either moves them aside or waits for one of us to arrive.
If I'd not have been so lazy, I should have shown up early with a cup of coffee in hand saying "ah yeah, ah listen... mmm kay" >>Keep Reading: Full Post and Comments

Apple's Newton II Tablet Mac

ARTHUR: Go and tell your master that we have been charged by God
with a sacred quest. If he will give us food and shelter for the
night he can join us in our quest for the Holy Newton II.
GUARD: Well, I'll ask him, but I don't think he'll be very keen...
Uh, he's already got one, you see?
GALAHAD: He says they've already got one!
ARTHUR: Are you sure he's got one?
GUARD: Oh, yes, it's very nice-a [To Other Guards] I told him we already got one.

OSX Leopard and Wireless network Compromised

I upgraded to Leopard Friday nite when it came out. Since then when I'm at work using our wifi network (encrypted with WPA2) I've this pop up:

Incase you have images turned off, it reads: "the wireless network appears to have been compromised and will be disabled for about a minute."

Since I have admin access to the wifi router, I know it's not been compromised. But the message is somewhat disturbing anyway. >>Keep Reading: Full Post and Comments

OSCON 2007 Pictures

This year I was finally able to attend OSCON. I had a good time, learned quite a bit. Portland's a nice city, from what I saw I could easily live up there. Here's some of my photos in a slideshow

(If you don't like slideshow's, then here's a direct-link to the pictures). >>Keep Reading: Full Post and Comments

First peak at a PS3 Linux and MythTV

This past weekend our local Linux user group had its monthly meeting and someone brought their newest toy, a PS3. What was interesting is he'd put a Linux Distro on their, and then MythTV on it (the front end, he has the myth-master in his basement loaded with a few capture boards).

I think he said it took about an hour to install. It was very slick. Apparently you can assign cores to the alternative OS. And that OS runs under a hardware hypervisor so it can't access the PS3 (so you can't fiddle and mess with it). But you don't need a hardware hack or new bios or anything (ahem, XBox) to run Linux on it.

What would be cool is if Linux could stay running on a few of the cores while you played games on the PS3 on it's normal OS with the rest of the cores. >>Keep Reading: Full Post and Comments

Hunting Masacer

This year in Ohio, hunters took 111,672 deer during the state’s weeklong deer-gun season. If you combine the adult seasons, youth seasons, muzzleloader season and archery season the total was 166,534.

However, there is a dark side so these statistics. It's the number of unknown deer that were taken but never reported.

This year we saw it again. Idiots had shot deer, pulled the skin back, taken some of the hind quarter meat, and then left them. They didn't take the rest of it to claim it with the state. They didn't take the rest of it to process it and use it for it's meat, hide, etc.

We saw this on the side of the road:

Infact, on the left, you can see the road.

In the picture below, these are most of the legs, which they threw further off the side of the road into the woods - just visible if you peered into the front of the forest from the roadside.

It looked as though they used some plastic bags and paper to take their haul away. They left some of the internals w/ the extra bags and what-not to litter it up.

What a shame. The pictures are very depressing to look at. It is idiots such as this that giving hunting a bad name.
