Were they good questions?

I frequent some political blogs just to see what people are reacting to. I don’t think it really matters what the current administration does or what the Democrats do simply because both sides are incapable of a genuine compromise. The partisan bickering makes both sides pretty impotent. One of the sites I check out is […]

Back to Max Payne 2

I saw a commercial for Kane and Lynch: Dead Men and I had to get out my copy of “Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne” and install it. This game came out in 2003 and I still like playing it. It’s like Humphrey Bogart directed by John Woo. Very cool. I’ve only just […]

The kids like Pucca

The kids like the show Pucca; it’s really funny in a less than 6 year old sorta way… It’s good addictive fun. The other show they like is Power Rangers.

Got Joost 1.0.2 to work with Vista 64

I’m home sick today so I have time to goof off.  I got Joost 1.0.2 working on Vista 64, it was the simplest thing of all.  In the shortcut properties disable Windows XP SP2 compatibility.  That’s it. I’m watching Numbers right now.

Mineola train crash and the wrong restaurant

Wow. This image is from Newsday’s web site. Lily and I usually try to catch the 5:53 PM to Ronkonkoma out of Penn Station. Thursday night all the passengers were told that there was a fatal car accident at Mineola. Luckily that accident was not fatal, in fact the driver was rescued with 10 seconds […]

Okay I think I got ATPP working

I think I’ve gotten the machine translation working to a point of good stability. Meaning my MySQL config is not killing the box with requests, caching seems to be working fine. Right now I have 65 translated pages in my database. When I encounter one that is munged (meaning the database timed out) I manually […]
