I missed two, for an embarassing 89% score.
Oh crap. Here's yet another thing for me to worry about, and my oldest daughter is only 5.
Bob Cringley weighs in on the SCO v. IBM suit. My opinion, and thanks for asking, is that SCO has a big ol' sack full of nothing, and they're hoping to make some money fall out of the sky. I suspect they'll be in Chapter 13 in no time at all.
Whoops! Sorry 'bout that, chief. It apparently isn't true that all emails containing the letter 'P' are evil; it's just that some people apparently imagine they are.
I just found this, and only about two years after it was written: Ted Husted wrote a quick few notes about performance penalties for reflection and creation v. caching in Java. I was under the impression that reflection was an order of magnitude slower than direct invocation, and here people are only seeing 5-10% slower. Damn, but that's a whole different kettle of fish.
Hooray for The Gipper! And hooray for Scott for writing this moving essay about the great change in the world that is the end of the Cold War.
Well, crap. More stuff I have to buy. I'm going to have to get a second (or third) mortgage to pay for all the stuff plus someplace to store it.
Hey France! So, like, we're have a party? and lots of people are gonna be there? and you're totally not invited. Okay?

Frank J. explains how to deal with the plethora of Homeland Security Alert Levels. In detail.
Death to these bastards. I'll even supply the bullets and fire 'em myself.
BWA-hahahahaha! "Throw me a frickin' bone" indeed!! This sounds like great fun.
Sick of dealing with actors and their fragile egos and demands for better lighting/blocking/trailers? Dump 'em all in the very near future.

Holy crap. Lee, it appears that you got out just in time, because your erstwhile countrymen have gone completely around the bend.
(Blogger archive links are hosed. Again. What a crock).

More reason why Tim Blair is must-reading for all sentient beings:
According to Clean Up Australia, Australians use in excess of 6 billion plastic bags per year. If tied together these bags would form a chain that is long enough to go around the world 37 times.
Well, maybe that's exactly what we're trying to do, art haters.
I seem to be on a web services kick. As in most things, once you get immersed in something you get sensitized to it, and start finding it everywhere. (This happens especially when you buy a car). Anyway, if you do anything that remotely involves books, you can now access the entirety of the Amazon powerhouse via their published web services.
For the three people left in the world who write their own WSDL files, let me point out this free graphical WSDL editor. "Use vi and be careful" is no substitute for a good format-specific editor. ("Use emacs and be careful" is, of course, malfeasance)
