The worst movie ever made: Mulholland Dr 2003/5/19 5:27 PM
Typically I'm the kind of guy who goes for the odd and generally misunderstood movies. Normally I can see my way to ignoring a lot of bad things about a movie because the overall point that the movie makes is worth the trouble. Usually I'm real open min

Sunday Infommericals suck Ass 2003/5/11 7:56 PM
Whose idea was it to clog up Sunday television with hour long commercials, television evangelists, and other mindless nonsense? What is the point of Sunday television? Is it supposed to make me appreciate the other 6 days of the week that much more? We

Another one bites the dust... (hopefully) 2003/5/9 4:35 PM
It should be pretty freaking surprising that despite my adorable bad attitude - some people don't like me. In fact some people don't like me so much that they will say and do anything just so that they can get in the last word with me. Just yesterday so

Required Reading: The Unix Haters Handbook 2003/5/7 11:45 PM
It's a well known fact to those of us smart enough to accept it that virtually every piece of software available for use today stinks. Slowly but surely things are getting better (emphasis on the word s-l-o-w-l-y) though its pretty obvious to me based up

Well after months of planning and years of dreaming it has finally happened... I have built the dream machine. It cost $3000+ dollars but it is finally here. Yes it is an SMP box and as you may have guessed based on the title - it uses Xeon processors.

The March of Gentoo continues... 2003/1/15 7:41 PM
As some of my loyal readers (whom I could probably count on a single hand) may remember - I switched my Linux box over to Gentoo a few months back. I was so enthralled over Gentoo that I decided to actually make a post on my site here about how it was li

A Flame Gone too Far 2002/12/8 1:55 AM

A Confederacy of Dunces 2002/11/20 9:13 AM
I've just finished reading one of most amusing (not to mention wonderfully pointless) books that I've ever had the distinct pleasure of reading. "Confederacy of Dunces", which was written by John Kennedy Toole, tells the story of a fat, lazy, o

Wireless Security in Greenville = NonExistant 2002/9/9 3:37 AM
So as mentioned in an earlier post, I spent this weekend doing a bit of wardriving around Greenville and the results were quite dismal to say the least. In what doesn't amount to much more than random driving, we were able to locate 49 wireless networks.
