Har Har Har. AIn’t Karma a bitch?

Sorry, I just do not feel sorry for this doofus. Check the video below, and the full story at the link.

GOP delegate’s hotel tryst goes bad when he wakes up with $120,000 missing – TwinCities.com

He met her in the bar of the swank hotel and invited her to his room. Once there, the woman fixed the drinks and told him to get undressed.

And that, the delegate to the Republican National Convention told police, was the last thing he remembered.

When he awoke, the woman was gone, as was more than $120,000 in money, jewelry and other belongings.

Oh my God. I think I need to scrub my eyeballs and my ears. Rarely have I seen such glib, idiotic, shallow, SMUG stupidity. Apparently the guy is a chickenhawk, too – no military service. Very easy to be glib about war when ya never had to fight in one.

Fucknozzle.

What I wanna know is, what the hell is he doing travelling to a convention with, and I quote

a necklace valued at $5,000, earrings priced at $4,000

I mean, where did he hide the cocktail dress?

–UPDATED!–

I love this!

I love this – just got it set up here in work.

Hack Attack: Control multiple computers with a single keyboard and mouse

You don’t need a hardware switch to share one keyboard and mouse amongst several different computers. All you need is the free, cross-platform application, Synergy.

Synergy connects one keyboard and mouse to any computer on your network, making a dual- or triple-computer setup work more like a dual- or triple-monitor setup. Synergy even allows you to share clipboard data across your computers and operating systems.

Just sayin’, is all

This is a google maps link to the sports centre that Sarah Palin had built in Wasilla, Alaska.

http://maps.google.com/maps?t=h&hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=61.572231,-149.519023&spn=0.003141,0.00957&z=17

Notice how there are no cars parked around it? If you zoom out, look how damn far away from everything it is. It’s too far for kids to walk or cycle to, and nobody is driving out to it. Via Salon:

http://www.salon.com/news/feature/2008/09/17/palin_mayor/index.html

“Today, the sports complex sits like a huge airplane hangar outside the Wasilla city limits, in a clearing in the woods. Since Palin’s administration decided to build the complex far from Wasilla’s population center, kids can’t walk there or ride their bicycles. On a recent, drizzly afternoon, the cavernous building sat nearly empty. Inside, two girls glided aimlessly around on the ice rink.”

Sheesh.

Say No To All on File Replace

This is something I wish I knew years ago.

From Online Tech Tips:

Say No To All“Ever had to copy a bunch of files from one location on your local hard drive to another place with a lot of files with the same name? Well there are really only two options that you have when there are files with the same name: either replace the destination files or leave the destination files as they are and only copy the new files. 

 

Luckily, there is still a stealthy way to tell Windows not to overwrite all the files with name conflicts and thereby skip them over. You can create this “No to All” functionality by simply pressing and holding the SHIFT key when you click the No button in the Confirm File Replace dialog box.” 

I like that a lot, Hank 🙂

Devastro

And another one to try – this is apparently like the old game Cannon Fodder, with the addition of Aliens, UFO’s and a bit of humour.

Sounds good to me 🙂

Trilby: The Art of Theft

This looks like a fun game, actually. Must download it at home and give it a bash. I wish I could remember which arcade game this reminds me of, though.

Advice for freelancers.

I don’t do a lot of freelance work, but I do some.

This article has some very good advice if you’re thinking of going down the freelance road.

10 Absolute “Nos!” for Freelancers  

The biggy for me is Number 3) Will you register and host my site? No. 

You see, once the client thinks that you are responsible for their email and website functionality, you WILL get called all the time when their email shows the slightest wavering or their website 404s for any reason on their home computer.” 

True dat.

The Saltine Challenge 

Basically, eating 6 Saltines (a type of cracker) in 60 seconds. I haven’t tried this myself, and it seems to be one of those things where you say, “nah, it can’t be that hard can it?”. I’ll have to see what the equivalent of Saltines is over here, and give it a bash.

Purely for research purposes, of course.
