Software Sucking So Seeking Something

So many to cover let me number them. Trillian has been my IM client of choice since their beta. I’ve used Gaim and any number of programs who do multiple IMs from one client but found them lacking. Trillian was even the first software for which I was willing to pay my own money. (Otherwise… Continue reading Software Sucking So Seeking Something

Is the Media Left, Right, or Does It Even Matter?

Newspaper x is Liberal (aka favors the Democrat Party). Television show y is Conservative (aka favors the Republican Party). Neither claims to be biased. Both claim to be party neutral. You could go back 210 years and change x to the Federalist Party (y would need to be another newspaper), but the result is that… Continue reading Is the Media Left, Right, or Does It Even Matter?

What is a Super Speeder?

There is a bill in the GA legislature to additionally fine people for excessive speeding. Fine. Good even. However, it disturbs me that people quote the wrong statistics as rationale and tie it to emotional cues. Slowing down ‘super speeders’ on Georgia highways is a super idea – gainesvilletimes.com: Last year in Georgia, 1,700 people… Continue reading What is a Super Speeder?

Homer a Pseudonym for a Woman?

I have always considered the Illiad or the Odyssey to be among the best of love stories. True, there is lots of violence. True, the characters are mostly men.

Guess I’ll have to do… Continue reading We all lose

Netscape.com 3.0

Poor Netscape…. They work and work at achieving again the glories of their past. Through their browser (eventually outsourced), web server (eventually sold of to become iPlanet, SunOne, and now something else), and web site, this brand just has not seemed to flourish since their IPO back in the mid 1990s. Will this latest try… Continue reading Netscape.com 3.0

I Have A Dream by Martin Luther King, Jr

Boondocks did an episode on Martin Luther King, Jr. It inspired me to Google MLK. Much of this is a poignant reminder of how far and not far enough the both America and the world have come. We are not living the dream. Yet… I Have A Dream Delivered on the steps at the Lincoln… Continue reading I Have A Dream by Martin Luther King, Jr
