My little world…

A redundant cluster of stuff!

Gov. Douglas to Veto Gay Marriage Bill

Blogged in General by Chris Wednesday March 25, 2009 at about 21:47

wtf. seriously?

Why is one man still in charge of what an entire state does? If it passes the House, doesn’t that mean it’s wanted by people with some sort of education and background? If it made it to the House in the first place, doesn’t that mean that the people of the State want it?

Douglas said this is something that isn’t important to the State, and other issues should be discussed and worked on; which I guess is true, but can’t you just pass the damn bill and move on? Is that so hard? Of course this just boils down to politics, and of course just being an ass. He claims that the current Civil Union law serves the state just fine, but that seems contradictory if the people of the State are trying to get this bill passed. What educated person can make that statement, if clearly there’s a bill trying to be passed to “upgrade” our current rights?

I’m just a bit angry about this whole mess, it’s just ridiculous and pointless. What’s so damned hard about letting people be happy?

Windows Live Sync

Blogged in Technology by Chris Wednesday March 25, 2009 at about 20:46

WLS is the bee’s knees; and I’m not just saying it lightly.
Install it on any machine you want to be kept in-sync with your content and make folder pairs, and auto-magically your files will be kept in-sync via the cloud.

On top of the cool factor of it working behind NAT/PAT routers auto-magically, you can log into a web interface (that works really well in non-IE browsers) and browse and download files from any of your hosts running the application. All over https…

I’ve been using this with my laptop and tower in my apartment for backup purposes; whenever the laptop gets online it can transfer transparently, the only downside is large files take their sweet time due to the bottleneck of the cloud.

I’m just impressed.

Perfect timing…

Almost as if in response to my last blog post, Apple and AT&T Sued, Again, Over 3G. The /. comments are pretty good; doesn’t surprise me that some towers don’t have a connection back to the Internet.

AT&T 3G Coverage

Blogged in Technology by Chris Wednesday March 18, 2009 at about 21:35

Apple’s headquarters is in Cupertino, CA. According to AT&T’s website, there is no supported 3G coverage in Cupertino…

If I live in Vermont, which just barely let AT&T move in, and I want 3G coverage so I can justify buying an iPhone… What in the hell does that mean for me? Guess I’m sticking with Verizon, which I can get EVDO nearly anywhere. Why in the hell is it so hard for AT&T to have the type of coverage that VZW has? (AT&T 3G Supported Areas)

A smarter move on Apple’s part would have been to let the iPhone have the option for different cellular radios. I can guarantee that Apple would have sold enough units to cover the cost of making so many different SKUs. But what do I know as a consumer?

Parking Garage

Blogged in Automotive by Chris Monday March 16, 2009 at about 23:13

So living @ Keens Crossing, we have this poorly built parking garage… Drop ceiling, extremely small, and just shaped weird.

On top of that, people CAN’T PARK!

So from now on, I’m going to just compile a list of vehicles that park like assholes. Might publish them here, since I feel that if you can’t park (parking right over the lines) you deserve to have attention brought to you, as I’m quite sick of this… This is in response to Keens Crossing management doing jack squat.
