Robert Capa's lost negatives.

To all you fucking yahoos who think the New York Times is evil or the product of a liberal conspiracy or whatever, look at what you are missing.

Where is my damn OLPC?! I want to play!


Heh. The new guy, right out of school, just noticed an == / equals() bug in something I wrote.

I'm on the phone with Microsoft trying to "reactivate" my copy of Vista business. Windows, displaying one of the myriad ways it finds to shit all over itself, has decided it is not "genuine." Whatever that means.

Thanks, assholes.

Whatever dickbag in Redmond designed this jackass activation scheme, you deserve to be kicked in the crotch.

For the record, I own not one, but two valid Vista business licenses.

Update: the assholes disconnected me! I get to type in 54 digits for a second time.


"HBO, cable's most popular premium channel, is carefully entering the arena of Internet video.

The channel, a subsidiary of Time Warner, will introduce HBO on Broadband starting this week to subscribers in Green Bay and Milwaukee, Wis., then spread the service slowly to other parts of the country. The free service will allow access to about 400 hours of movies and original programming each month. It will be made available only to people already subscribing to HBO, and it will be marketed and delivered through cable operators."

Sad. They coulda been a contender. Instead they gave away their future to competitors. Nice fluff piece, though.


I just bought an HD TV with frequent flyer miles! W00t!

Can someone explain to me why I keep getting Google ads for "Asian eyelid surgery?"
