Governor Palin shows lots of class

Okay, I guess Bill Ayers 15 minutes are up.  Now their linking Senator Obama with the PLO. Here is the appropriate response: The Obama campaign called Palin’s remarks “another recycled, manufactured controversy from the McCain campaign to distract voters’ attention from John McCain’s lockstep support for George Bush’s economic policies.” Palin accuses Obama of ties […]

Senator Stevens is convicted of all 7 counts!

Holy mackerel. Mr. Stevens’s defense was largely built on the notion that many of the goods and services he received were unasked for, and were things for which he had no use. Alaska Senator Is Convicted of Violating Ethics Rules – NYTimes.com. I’m reading it but I don’t believe it.  Wonder if he’ll resign? 8 […]

World War – 3D is great

This is a couple of months old but the CGI animation is first rate.  You can see it in HD on the Vimeo web site.

Fall Anime

I’ve picked up watching Gundam 00 Season 2 and the going is slow.  I know it’s only the third episode but it’s really reminding me of Zeta Gundam.  That’s probably an overreaction but if a Camille Biden clone shows up then I’m walking away from the series. The other show I’m starting is Ga Rei […]

Joost got better

One of the things that I did not like about Joost was it needed a client to work. On my PCs that client frequently crashed so I uninstalled it and did not bother to try it much. Now they’ve converted to a Flash based web page.  I’ve just watched some of my favorite scenes from […]

WordPress blogs are based on MySQL and all the dynamic content is stored in a database. After trying out plugins, odd themes, and generally screwing around, my database has items in it that I can’t even recall what they were or if I need them. One way to clean out the database is to export […]

Governor Palin abused her position and so what?

The report is in and apparently Governor Palin (or her husband, I can’t tell which) has abused her position. And it does not matter one bit. The folks who will vote for McCain only care about ethics, rules, and laws when it applies to Those Darned Socialist Democrats. If anything this will solidify the base […]

Gundam 00 Season 2 begins

The second season of Gundam 00 has begun.  No huge surprises yet but this season seems to be imitating Zeta Gundam more and more.  I’m pretty sure we’ve just met the group that will be this series Titans. I wonder how long it will be before Bandai produces a Master Grade 1/100 scale version of […]

That was totally expected, no release for those 17

Those 17 not-enemy-combatants that Pakistan handed to the U.S.? An emergency motion blocking their release was granted to the administration. That’s not surprising; I expected that the administration would not have bothered with a court order.  I mean, they could have just refused to comply. This whole situation is ridiculous.  If this is really an […]

Will the U.S. actually release these prisoners?

It would be amazing if these Chinese Muslims actually get released.  The U.S. has admitted that they are not enemy combatants so I don’t understand what the risk really is.
