  • Perfect clones, computer style

    Computer generated perfect clones for digital modification anywhere.

  • Legislation offered to set net-radio fees based on revenues

    You might remember that I recently wrote about new use fees set for music played on Internet based radio stations. These fees were determined using costs and figures from the dot-com boom time when everything was overvalued by an order of magnitude or more. The new use fees were set so high that nearly all […]

  • Ace of Spades details wack-job police state idea

    Ace covers in detail a recent liberal guide of how to disarm Americans today

  • Have you had your head checked lately?

    Have you ever wondered if your spouse is dead or just not interested in putting out for you? Have you ever wanted to check someone for epilepsy? Shoot, have you ever just wanted to see the brain waves of someone you know while they slept? Well, thanks to the tireless efforts of hardware and software […]

  • Bandwidth issues clearing up

    Between cutting out two animated GIFs that were each close to 1 Meg and renaming the 32K jpeg of Keira Knightly, I dropped bandwidth today to less than 10% of what it was yesteday.  After realizing that most of my bandwidth was going to a Myspace page as I noted in the post before this […]

  • Ohhhh, so that’s where my bandwidth went

    After more searching, I found out where so much of my bandwidth is going.  Some pigfucker on myspace is hotlinking to an image on my web site for their background on their profile page.  And current access logs are showing over half my web requests for that one file.  So I’ve deleted it. Now to […]

  • Gaming fan video

    A link at the City of Heroes forums to this fan made video of two gaming icons prompted me to install a polling widget.  Thus the new poll in the left column.

  • Traffic explosion for the Blahg

    I’ve held steady under 1 Gig of bandwidth since launching a year and a half back (under 100 Meg initially, in fact). Because there is so little traffic here, I’ve been able to get by with some low price hosting ever since launching. In the past 3-4 months, however, traffic has exploded on the site, […]

  • Hawking weightless at last

    Apparently, weightless flight has long been one of Stephen Hawking’s dreams. I’m not quite sure of the logistics in setting up the experience for Hawking, but I see it was good for him. Free of his wheelchair and tethered only to heart rate and blood pressure monitors, astrophysicist Stephen Hawking on Thursday fulfilled a dream […]

  • Protected music convertor

    A handy tool to convert your music from protected to unprotected formats

  • Jellyfish lights

    Utterly useless for me, what with having no pool and all, but how cool are these floating jellyfish lights? All show and no sting, these battery-operated Floating Jellyfish Pool Lights unleash a kaleidoscope of color as they float in the water. For larger pools, unleash a flotilla to create a crowd-pleasing effect. Crafted of durable […]

  • Major slip from Astroglide manufacturer

    If you’ve ordered a free sample from Astroglide maker BioFilm in the past 4 years, there’s a good chance your contact information – specifically name and mailing address – was out on the web for all to see. Of course, I’m sure many of you will claim to have never ordered the free sample, but […]
