  • Happy birthday Katie

    January 1, 1957 – the world welcomes Katie Couric. EDIT: The image associated with the post didn’t show up.  Fixed.  And I wanted to add that she’s damn hot.  50 or not, I’d hit it.  I’m such a pig.

Although original development on telnet took place back in 1969, the protocol was not formalized until RFC 318, released April 3rd, 1972. The passing away of telnet is being called out as a […]

  • Happy Birthday, John Lithgow

    To celebrate John Lithgow’s 61st birthday, I believe I’ll watch some Third Rock from the Sun tonight. It took me a while to find a good image. Hopefully you recognize him from one of his finest roles: [tags]Happy Birthday, John Lithgow[/tags]
