Dude, I listened to the speech and that is what you said! Quit lying and then just quit! Asshat!

Yes that is 3 ! in one post but the jerk stood there and said just exactly what he is now saying he was misrepersented as saying. Oh yes time to take the meds and quit thinking about these jerks…

Doug Moe: Lake discovery is likely Truax jet
By Doug Moe

THERE HAS been a stunning development in the half-century-old mystery of what happened to a Truax Air Force Base F-89 Scorpion jet airplane that disappeared over Lake Superior on Nov. 23, 1953.

The plane and its Madison-based crew – pilot Felix Moncla and radar observer Robert Wilson – were never found. The F-89 had been dispatched to track a large unidentified flying object that radar had spotted near the U.S.-Canadian border, and the plane’s disappearance has been fodder for extraterrestrial theorists ever since.

It now appears the missing plane has been located.

Interesting. And still makes one wonder what it was that it hit.  Now to go look at the rest of the stuff… 😉

My Name Is Bruce

The movie’s plot is as natural as it is ingenious: Bruce Campbell (playing himself) is mistaken for his EVIL DEAD character, Ash, by the members of small Oregon town and is forced to fight a real monsters terrorizing the town’s inhabitants.

Article says maybe Feb 2007. Ought to be good.

UNEASYsilence » Cyber sex can make you sick

This is funny as hell.  Boy and girl are doing the you show me and I’ll show you thing via computer chat cam without having their heads in the picture.  The dinner call comes and after getting redressed they come to dinner and see what the other is wearing and realize what’s happened.  No exposed naughty bits but probably not safe for work.

Has Blair gone completely nuts?  I thought that there was some kind of check and balance in place to keep nutbags like this under control.  Guess he’s either trying to out do or take the heat off of Bush.  1984 again and again…

And once again greed (WalMart) is working to stop (even DRM restricted) freedom of choice.  Asshats!

Technorati is still being a pain in the butt.

By , September 1, 2006 5:59 pm

Went and deleted the feed at Technorati and redid the signup.  They find the new post fine but are still showing that I haven’t updated anything in 47 or 48 days.  And they don’t respond to the contact us thingie…

I suspect that it is all on their end as I am getting all of the other spiders but theirs.  Have checked my robots.txt file and it is the same as the one at my Nero Wolfe site and they are getting new posts there within 3 minutes.  Starting to piss me off!

Trying again…

Jake’s Kerosene Lamp & Lantern Workshop

Interesting site about collecting, making and repairing kerosene lamps and lanterns.  He also has several other interesting sites.   One is where he is rebuilding an old schoolbus into a really fine camper.  Another is on building bicycles.  Well worth the browsing time if you are into this kind of stuff.  Already linked to his water cooled computer pages.  This dude is a serious junk lover and hardware hacker!

MicroShop – Red Alt

MicroShop – Red Alt

This looks quite interesting. MicroShop is a shopping cart for WordPress with a paypal gateway built in.  Been looking for something like this for over a year and just stumbled on it tonight.   Wasn’t even looking for a shopping cart!  Have downloaded it and will try it later today. If it works like I think it will then guess I get to redo several sites that I thought were finished… Mainly cause WordPress will be easier to use for small sales sites, both to setup and to maintain than ANY of the ecommerce programs I have used and tried to use. They are just too complacated for anyone but a geek to setup and run and they want way to much info on each item. /rant

More after I try it… [Does a happy dance when no one is looking]
