I am in love with Taquitos.net -- they review snack food, one of my favorite things.
Last week... a ninety-two-year-old woman was killed in a
shootout with Atlanta police, a Houston teenager was
sentenced to jail for sodomizing a Hispanic teenager with
a patio umbrella while shouting "White Power!," and a
professional dominatrix testified that an officer in the
Greenburgh, New York, police department had extracted
sexual favors from her. "He wanted to go to a motel in the
Bronx where I would defecate on him," she said, "but I
told him I was uncomfortable going to the Bronx."
Think before you take a screenshot when you have a folder called Shemale Vids on your desktop. Dan would do something like that.
Finally, Champagne Beer.
And we have pics!
It's been a while since we've seen one of these...
Amusing article from 1981 on Babbage - The [programming] language of the future
For years, programming languages have used "FOR," "DO UNTIL," "DO WHILE," etc. to mean "LOOP." Continuing with this trend, Babbage offers the following loop statements:
DON'T DO WHILE NOT - This loop is not executed if the test condition is not false (or if it's Friday afternoon).
DIDN'T DO - The loop executes once and hides all traces.
CAN'T DO - The loop is pooped.
DO-WAH - Used to write timing loops for computer-generated music (Rag Timing).<all>
Slashdot had to suspend all coments today... oops.
Last night we crossed over 16,777,216 comments in the database. The wise amongst you might note that this number is 2^24, or in MySQLese an unsigned mediumint. Unfortunately, like 5 years ago we changed our primary keys in the comment table to unsigned int (32 bits, or 4.1 billion) but neglected to change the index that handles parents. We're awesome! Fixing is a simple ALTER TABLE statement... but on a table that is 16 million rows long, our system will take 3+ hours to do it, during which time there can be no posting. So today, we're disabling threading and will enable it again later tonight. Sorry for the inconvenience. We shall flog ourselves appropriately.
Rumsfeld just resigned. It feels like Christmas!

Interesting site aggregating poll results.
