George Carlin died last night

I woke up to some bad news this morning: George Carlin passed away.  His seven words skit was funny, but I liked his comparison of baseball versus football best.  And don’t forget his skit where everything the government did was fine or “the Terrorists Win”.

Over a week ago I complained about WordPress users crying security wolf and not being able to recover their blog when the “Bad Thing(tm)” happens. Since then a real brawl developed on the support forum that could be summed up like so: One or more users is insisting that there is an XMLRPC exploit in […]

Battlestar Galactica mid-season ender

Friday was the mid-season ender of Battlestar Galactica and I just saw it on my DVR.  No spoilers but if you want, you can read about it on Salon’s website. The show is still good and the series wrapping up at the end of this season is a good thing.  But I have a tough […]
