I give up, y’all win (hotlinking update)

Sunday, January 15th, 2006

Well, it happened again. I was only two weeks into the month and I was already over my bandwidth. Hattip to Dad for pointing it out to me. Jon pulled a string or two and got service back to the domain. Thanks, Jon.
This is my official statement of defeat. The Myspace users, the MSN Spaces […]

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 […]

Buzz words/phrases/crap

Monday, December 19th, 2005

I’ve never been a big fan of buzz. My disgust of buzz words and phrases grew out everything getting some sort of word or phrase to describe it. Hearing someone call the internet an “information superhighway” makes my skin crawl. I want to do evil things involving honey and ants to those that mention the […]

Monday, January 31st, 2005

Half Life 2

Tuesday, January 4th, 2005

I picked up a copy of Half Life 2 while I was on leave and finally tried to install it tonight. That install turned out to be the source of my anger. The first three disks went great, but when I got to disk four, it crapped out giving a .cab read error. The file […]
