Stupid Domino Defaults

What sort of a stupid error message is that? No I don't want you to remove the bookmark - surely having designer check the error code that gets returned to it in a situation like this and offering more appropriate choices wouldn't be rocket science to implement?

The royal we.

"We agreed to do the following" , "We will go ahead and change...." , "We will then implement...." What's up with this "we" when I only see one person doing anything?

"I have a really simple question..."

But it's related to Linux - which means the answer will come in the form of 23923 spotty fuckers arguing over semantics and the most efficient and 'best' way to answer this simple question, and will then degrade into a 'my distro has a bigger fucking cock than your distro' argument. Fuck Linux right up it's stupid arse.

Word of the day

The word of the day, is solipsistic.

The new Mayor

Discussing the new Auckland Mayor in this posting on publicaddress.net, Russell Brown makes the point that I meant to make myself: The new mayor, Dick Hubbard, already appears to have had a lesson in political reality - in that he might yet be able to contrive that elusive cost-benefit analysis to save face, but 13 votes say that the motorway plan won't be proceeding. It is reasonable to say that he didn't win the election, Banks lost it, and therefore, he has a lot to prove. Where he and his new councillors do agree is that genuine steps have to be...

Alarming iPod icons

If you're like me, and you didn't bother to read the iPod manual, then one day you might be greeted with a very alarming looking icon when you go to turn on or recharge your iPod. It simply sits there with a worrying icon of a battery with an exclamation point on top of it. I read it as "OMG D: YOUR BATTERY IS TEH FUXX!!24". Seems what it actually means is that it's too low to connect to the computer for syncing, even though it should be currently charging. I find it a bit worrying that they couldn't find...

Firefox: Get FlashGot for FlashGet

That's an incredibly stupid title, but FlashGot allows you to properly integrate Firefox with download managers - there are other products / extensions out there which claim to do this, but FlashGot allows you to retain the "Download all with FlashGet..." right click integration (ie, the dialog which allows you to select/deselect all links). It works very well.. nice job Kharos for finding it!

Lian Li PC-V1100B

I've been trying to find the Lian Li PC-V1100A case stocked locally for a while, mainly as whenever you read online case reviews they always start about how badly the case got fucked over by the courier delivery. Anyway, while I've been searching it seems a model has been released - mysteriously named: Lian Li PC-V1100B "Silent" Super Tower Aluminium Case. The Overclockers page shows the 2 products as having identical descriptions, and identical prices, but on their front page they say the B model has "many new features", such as: sound proof front door, sound insulated foam, anti-vibration rubber rings,...
