Feline Diabetes for one please. Ching! Ching! 2003/6/26 7:19 AM

Betting open for Presentation Engine release.... 2003/6/30 5:51 PM
Another week goes by and.... errrr... ummmm... the updated version of the Presentation Engine has yet to be released. Even though I know better, I like pretending that people out there actually care whether or not I release the engine driving this site.

Somebody stop the damn voices!!!! 2003/7/1 5:31 PM
Stupid is as stupid does, right? Well in the spirit of that I was just banned from my favorite online hangout Ars Technica for using multiple accounts. The problem with this is that.... errrr... I don't have multiple accounts. I can only presume that t

Hot damn - and I thought I was done. 2003/7/21 11:34 PM
Wow! As you well know, I've been lagging when it comes to updating the Presentation Engine. The reason for this is that I really really really (emphasis on the word really) want to make this release shine. In the spirit of making Pengine the best BLOG

Something Wicked this Way Comes 2003/7/22 6:51 AM
Nothing but the immortal words of Shakespeare himself can simply describe what has been happening lately between SCO (Santa Cruz Operation), IBM and Linux. As my more technically astute readers may be aware, SCO has made their business out of peddling an

Ovaltine has always SUCKED and always will 2003/8/8 3:23 PM
You heard it here first folks. How many years have we been subjected to the painful dramatizations of kids who live each and every day just for that glass of ovaltine flavored milk? Those kids don't exist. No self respecting child would choose Ovaltine

Adaptation: What a weird movie 2003/9/23 4:25 PM
Last night I watched the movie "Adaptation" for the very first time. While I had heard that it was a bit odd - I was bit unprepared for the amount of oddness that it actually brings to the table. To put in bluntly: It was an enjoyable movie t

CompUSA's kiosk security sucks 2003/12/18 2:17 AM
