I'm stirring up trouble today.  11:55:50 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

Christopher Goode's Radio Weblog: "I finally went to sleep at 2:30 in the morning on Sunday. I was awake for a total of 68 hours. I slept for 7 and when I awoke I discovered I had developed the uncanny ability to fly. I flew around the house a number of times, and then left for my friend Alex's carrying Jeremiah with me. I did not make an entry yesterday because I spent the entire day in the air. "

Excellent.  10:57:27 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

Deadly Bloody Serious Radio: "I'm currently working on a tool that expands upon UserLand's referrer handling a little"

A little? How about a whole hell of a lot? Garth is my new hero.  10:53:14 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

I just realized what Radio needs: A "Holy Shit! Terrorists!" button.

The "Fuck, did you see that?" button would force the news aggregator into overdrive, scanning news at many times it's regular frequency. Think of it this way, on September 11, would you have waited an hour for a news update? Not on your life. You'd switch off Radio and go get your news the old fashioned way. TV,, etc.

Come on, Dave, what do you say? I promise to use it only for good, and not evil.  10:33:53 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

Whoa, radio just melted down. I won't bore you with the details, but whatever you do, don't try to run Radio 8.0 and 8.0.2 at the same time...

Somehow, I recovered everything, and--Bonus!--my trial period reset itself. Don't worry, Dave. I'm giving you my money on Feb 8, regardless.  8:32:22 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

It looks like the DNC took marketing lessons from the fine folks at How long will it be before the Democrats are adding beautiful bikini babies to their pop ups? "The Democrats need you, big boy..."

Um, no. This isn't the way to get my vote.

Mitch Harding's LiveJournal: " I should mention that Rasputin is not much of a licker when it comes to people. Nor was a guy named Sticker that Matt, Phil, and I met in Las Vegas, but that's another story."

Holy frightening flashbacks, Batman, I'd forgotten all about Sticker. Remind me--no--force me, to tell you this story some time.  12:06:21 AM  permalink   Add a comment
