Polished up my grammar a bit...

Since there was no real thread for useless but nonetheless
interesting links I thought I'd create one.

It's funny, I had some of Martin's albums back in the 70's (Let's Get Small, certainly, maybe some others), and it never occurred to me that they didn't have punchlines. While I enjoy his analysis and appreciate his thought process in putting his act together, I'm not sure it correctly describes the impression that his act left me with.

BTW, does the video link on that Smithsonian page work for anyone (on a Mac)? What browser/plugin combo do I need?

Good to know I'm in the minority again.

I don't plan on helping them get into, pay for or whatever with college. 18 and out the door. You figure it out. Why take advice from a loser like me? ;)

What a journey.

For the iPhone and iPod Touch users out there, here's a nice weather info site optimized for your devices.

In America, the only respectable form of socialism is socialism for the rich.
Oh great thanks ... the Yahoo widget's link (when you click the widget panel on the iPhone to get weather details) SUCKS!!!

Er, I meant to say, it's less than optimal a user experience.

cool. Then add it as a web clip and your set.

I did the soft upgrade from ijailbreak.com and now I'm up with all the 1.1.3 goodness on my touch and I didn't have to pay $20 to Apple. You can upgrade right from the installer app, even from 1.1.1.

What happens when you use screen sharing to share the screen of a computer that is currently sharing the screen of the computer you're on?

Really cool infinite desktop effects.

more like, we can't get screen sharing to WORK around here! ;) (even with help from sporkers)

What a journey.

Oh, that's why CA does not allow admins/users of their RCO (Remote Control Option) to be remotely controlled, I'd suspect. That's what we use at work.

What a journey.

Iraq wasn't that religious before the west 'liberated' them.

openly?
Seems that from what I read/see, many nations that are liberated reveal the core belief systems in place that allowed them to survive whilst suppressed. I see it here.

What a journey.
