Where is the bottom? Only the vampire knows!

This last week has seen an uptick in the number of articles reporting light at the end of the tunnel. While very cautious in their statements, growing numbers of economists are saying that we MIGHT have hit bottom.

How do they know this? What is their measurment criteria? Everyone has their favorite measurement criteria and I have the Vampire Deal Indicator.

Let me know what you think.


The bottom would've been last week if not for the plague of "Ohmigosh! Can the market go any lower! The sky is falling!" yellow journalists that plague the Western World.

Unfortunately, consumers are too stupid to turn off the television, media companies are too greedy to stop producing doomsday content, and Jesus loves the poor more.

Hope this helps,

JustBlogIt :: Firefox Add-ons

JustBlogIt :: Firefox Add-ons: "Updated August 27, 2006"

Well, there she is.

The cool thing about JustBlogIt, well, the first, is that you compose your message in raw, honest-to-Lynx HTML. No furries, no icons, no clickits, no stupids, just you, ASCII text, and whatever tags you can recall without viewing the source of a snazzy-pants page.

Guess I can make a table.With two columns.

That's all for now, kids.

Today’s Contestant Wins in Spades (and Hearts and Clubs and Diamonds)

Hi, everybody!  (Hi Dr. Nick!)

Today we’ve got one of My favorite flavors of dumb, for y’all to enjoy, chew, spit out, and tell your friends.  The problem with the Internet is that you can use it.  Yes, you, sitting on your vertical smile, reading this damned post.  Computers, the World Wide Web, and etc. have been dumbed down to the point that old people are on it.  This is a travesty, if not an outright crime against humanity, and today’s winner shows why:

Carol Fonde´

How do I cancel my account with Linked-In?

I have asked repeatedly...even called the corporate office to stop sending invitations from me to over 200 people to join Linked-In.
My next step, within 24 hours of this e-mail, if my account is not terminated, I will take legal action.

Quoth your humble servant:

Hi Carol,
The best way to leave is violently to pull the phone cord from the back of your DSL Router. Note that this will also liberate you from such societal plagues as Facebook, Google, online banking, and blogging.

Good luck with the lawsuit.

Hope this helps.


…as an aside, I am uninstalling Windows Live Writer, because the motherfucker can’t space paragraphs intelligently.  What.  The.  Fuck.

Why Do People Try?

I leave a while and what happens?

Health and health insurance in the US are in a dismal state. President Obama would like to standardize health-related information to better the US System through BI leading to preventive measures while holding down the costs associated with treatment. It all starts with a data standard.

What strategy would you use to develop such a standard and what existing standards would you incorporate into the system? Please remember this must be a HIPPA compliant system by definition.

The best solution to America's health care problem is to walk around with a baseball bat "downlifing" the sick people, as well as those who may be expected to get sick within a certain time frame.

Hope this helps,

Tell Me Something Stupid

So I'm bored, right, and it's three a.m. here on the West Coast of Alto Mexico, so there's even less to do.

But troll Drvdge for the latest in the online jewspapers.


James Lockhart, director of the government agency which oversees Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac, whined to Senator Barney Frank about Frank's machinations to cease the payment of bonuses to executives at those two financial disasters.  You're gonna like this, gang:  "They received no bonuses for their 2008 performance. The value of their stock holdings and options are worthless. We are taking actions to ensure that these retention payments are not excessive," Lockhart wrote.

Uhhh... management at two companies which didn't flirt with insolvency so much as as turn around and drop their panties... expect to be paid for the most lackluster performance of their lifetimes?

Guess it's not as much fun when the bad guys get their A.G.

Share and enjoy,

Couldn't Help Myself

I know, I really shouldn't have, but... vita brevis, asinus longum.

Application Performance Measurement Systems for wireless data applications

I am doing research on applications for monitoring application performance for wireless data applications and would like to hear what the operators and data app providers are using?


My reply:

I typically rely upon a tall antenna for wireless data.

Hope this helps,
