Question for how to proceed with my “Why Apple is evil” series

So, you might notice that I’ve fallen behind in my posting schedule for this blog. My goal was to post a piece of news about why Apple is evil every day.

I’ve failed in that goal, so far – at this point, I should have 61 articles up, yet I only have 26.

So, how would you like me to proceed? There’s two options.

My first option is to stick with the date that I had originally planned to end this series, in September 2015. I’ll post articles as I get them, but I most likely won’t hit my target of one article per day, even averaged out – so there won’t be 1,984 days of bad PR, but the series will last 1,984 days still.

The other option is to only stop once I have 1,984 articles posted. My fear with that is, I’ll still be trying to update this thing 20 years from now, to catch up. Apple may be evil, but that doesn’t mean that they’re CONSTANTLY doing evil things – news of them doing something evil seems to come out in bursts.

Holy crap it’s been a long time since I’ve made an entry…

Where do I begin…

Well, last day at my job was June 13… that sucked. Oh well, I’ll be able to get more experience this way…

Got new wheels for the Miata – Konig Heliums. 15×6.5, 11.4 lbs per wheel. They look great. 🙂

Palm OS web browsers suck the big one. And Opera Mini runs like ass in WebSphere. How do I know this? I got a Centro. Much better than that dying Sanyo.

Today, I got a Selectric II. Man, that thing is fun to type on. For some reason, the 6, 7, 8, and 9 keys don’t spring back up properly, but other than that, it’s in perfect working order.

Oh, and not sure that the sidebar is updating properly, but I got a Twitter account… check it out at 🙂

New theme, yet again!

So, I set a new theme here.

Not sure if I like it – I might just fix the issues with the CSS on the old theme and go back to it, but… for now, see how you guys like this. 🙂

Got a new server…

We decided at my work to throw out a bunch of our old P3 parts machines – after all, we’re going to FINALLY be phasing these things out.

So, I had to grab one, as my server,, has been down for quite a while due to a broken power supply (and the P3-700 wasn’t really happy with the load, anyway… especially when it was overheating. Damn ultraportable laptops when held at 100% load… ;))

The new server’s a Dell Dimension 2100. Don’t laugh, the mobo’s made by Intel. No optical drive, but who cares… I’ve got enough optical drives lying around. No hard drive, either, but I’ve got a laptop HDD adapter lying around somewhere, to use the old server’s 40 GB drive. If push really comes to shove, I use the 8.4 GB drive I’ve got lying around, and be damn judicious with the space.

Oh, and I will be running Linux here (the old server ran Windows 2000.) I’ve decided, since I’ve gotten rather familiar with Ubuntu on my laptop, I’ll run Ubuntu Server on this.

FTP and remote desktop services WILL be restored soon for all your downloading and proxy dodging pleasure. Just wait a bit.  😉

Oh, and I’ll have SSH access for when VNC is overkill, and I might even get fancy and implement a VPN so you can REALLY dodge proxies.
