Understand this – when you drive by someone on a bicycles, and yell something out of an open window, all we really hear is “Aaaak”. We can’t hear and distinguish anything more than a syllable, much less a sentence.
So, the next time you want to drive by me and yell “Fag!” or “Idiot!” or “Get a car!”, here’s what I need to have you do: Stop your car and say whatever insulting thing you have to say to my face.
I dare ya. No, actually I double dare ya.
All of the above were easily added to the post using Vladimir Prelovac’s “Insights” plugin. I like it. It really is a good sidekick for Zemanta.

Floating city for startups makes waves among entrepreneurs
Wow. Basically, the company behind “Blueseed” (the name of the “floating city”) is trying to create an independent “state” where tech entrepreneurs can get together in international waters and pursue their startups.
Makes you kinda wonder – is the state of business so bad in the U.S. that someone decided they need to be 12 miles off the coast to feel “safe” in their endeavors? Or, is this just a ploy by some less than honorable promoters who need to stay just out of the clutches of the authorities.
I want to see if I can create a backlink to A Big Sky Catering in Boise. It’s my brother-in-law’s catering and food service business. It ranks second in the Google search for “boise catering” and “catering boise”. According to SEO Quake/SEM Rush, the #1 result has 7 links to the domain and Big Sky has 4.
I want to see if I can push it up to #1 using links. Perhaps 8 links will do it. But, with Penguin and Panda on my heels, I really have to be careful.

If you've just read a health-related headline that has caused you to spit out your morning coffee ("Coffee causes cancer" usually does the trick), it's always best to follow the Blitz slogan: "Keep Calm and Carry On".

“My mind is clearer now. At last, all too well. I can see where we all soon will be”. – Judas in “Heaven on Their Minds” at the beginning of the rock opera “Jesus Christ Superstar”.

I’ve been working on a programming project – one I really should have done by now – and I’ve been feeling both of those emotions quite a bit lately. The project, for an unmentioned client, has been a mish-mash of decent to excellent programming styles, mixed with some of the worst I’ve seen for quite sometime.
It amazes me sometimes how dependent we have become on technology.
Today I was at a client site, and their network guy was on the phone with Barracuda debugging some issues with their firewall/web filter. I overheard most of the conversation. Barracuda would have him adjust something, and he would respond with whatever result came up. At one point I heard him say, “Well, looks like I lost internet completely. The backup server should have kicked in but it didn’t”, or words to that effect.
