Wow, I haven't seen this happen in a long time! Nice routing loop, Comcast. You should fix it. :)

This animation was so fun it was hard to not be tempted to shred everything in your passbook just for fun.

"OH CRAP MY BOARDING PASS!"

Another one I miss is the passbook "paper shredder" animation from iOS 6. It was around for only one release! Then they got rid of it with iOS 7. :(

Aww man, I was just reminded of the cool "Burn Disc" button iTunes had way back when.

Why did Apple stop doing neat UI stuff like this? Everything got so flat and boring.

The other day on the radio we heard "You are not alone" by Michael Jackson, but it sounded weird and off key and not right.

Later on I played the song to verify that my brain wasn't broken somehow, and it sounded right.

I still wondered what F-ed up version they played.

Student VM got hacked by a worm but the hack didn't fully succeed because the installed "~/.ssh/authorized_keys" file was set 0777 which of course is rejected by SSH.

Do these hackers even test their code???

I write checks so infrequently that my checks still say Washington Mutual on them.

Chase acquired them in 2008!

The media keeps screaming about SCARY NEW CORONAVIRUS VARIANTS but makes hardly any mention of the fact that new cases are down by 20% and continue to fall.

Is their end goal just to keep us scared, rather than inform us? I'm starting to despise this aspect of the media.

I'm impressed at the battery life of this remote. I've been using it heavily since early November and have only used about half a charge!

This is disappointing; if we're going to move to a new standard it should be better than the previous one in every way. USB-C ports are compact and reversible and support higher speeds but I don't want "my port is worn out" to be a problem!

It never was with the old A ports.

One obnoxious thing I've noticed about USB-C ports is they seem to wear out faster than the old USB-A ports did.

I worked with a Macbook today that's a few years old and the USB-C ports are like old US power outlets; the plugs fall right out at the slightest force.

New MLP looks so cute! I hope the writing, animation and voice work holds up too. I have a little hope. Just a little.

G4 MLP becoming such a hit among adult fans was an accident but also mainly driven by high quality work. This new movie/show has a lot to measure up to.

I mean, this just makes me angry. THE BATCH OF CABLES WE BOUGHT BECAUSE THEY SPECIALLY WORK ON INTEL CARDS STOPPED WORKING ON NEWER INTEL CARDS.

WHY. WHYYYY.

I have wasted so much valuable time because vendors can't seem to get it together on supporting DAC cables.

Why are DAC cables branded at all? It's just a passive cable! It should just work!

FUCK INTEL!
FUCK HP!
DIE IN A FIRE CISCO!

Why didn't Surf Mesa use more of Frankie Valli's song? I don't mind a cover, but one that just repeats the chorus over and over with no variety is just boring and I'm not sure how it became a hit.

The funny thing is I actually think we need more speed enforcement on that road... but damn, go after the hot rodders with no mufflers doing 100MPH at 1AM, not me driving to work in my Accord.

To the cop who yelled at me this morning for doing 4MPH over in a school zone:

While I appreciate not getting a ticket, 4MPH over? Seriously? And I was in the process of slowing down when you chirped me; I thought you wanted to get around me at first.

Freaking cops.

Upgrading a decades old design for mail trucks is great:

- They can carry more mail.
- They can be electric (green, more efficient)
- They have A/C and good heating. Imagine delivering mail in 90F Miami in August with no A/C.
- They're safer.

Shut up with the "wasting money".
