Friday, January 27th, 2006

I was completely blown away by the length of a spam email I got this morning. I found it wildly amusing and just shows the lengths some will go to in the name of spam. Read more in the fold.

Mexico and Illegal Immigration

Thursday, January 26th, 2006

Brian of The Uncooperative Bloggger reported back on the 15th of January about the Mexican military crossing into United States territory. He had no problem stating exactly what he thought of the situation, and what the United States needs to do.

I am sorry folks but this is unacceptable. We cannot allow the Mexican Army to […]

Laugh of the Day: Snort Edition

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

I was reading The Dilbert Blog this afternoon and I ended up laughing so hard I snorted.

Tuesday, January 10th, 2006

It is about 28 minutes until Steve Jobs is scheduled to begin his keynote for this year’s Macworld. A few of the rumors flying about are a new Intel based notebook, FM transmitter in iPods, iLife/Work 06, and others. I don’t own a Mac currently, but I would love to have one. I’m really excited […]

Hotlinking

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2006

I’m having a serious problem as of late. It seems a good deal of MySpace users have found my artwork from each other or search engines and are hotlinking the living crap out of it. This is beyond bad. Some of you may have noticed that I ran over my bandwidth limit for December and […]
