Trolls Rock!

From funroll-loops.org
“If Debian people think compiling sucks, well so what? I guess they’re satisfied with Someone Else’s Binaries. I prefer to play on Gentoo’s strengths. I get exactly what I want compiled in — nothing less, nothing more, and with the optimizations I want.”
And the mantra so oft-repeated in #757. “FreeBSD is perfect.” “Source distribution is more efficient.”
See what happens when you complete a buildworld and buildkernel, then install them. On a machine with bad ram. I’m dealing from experience right now. It ain’t a pretty picture.
Give me md5sum’d binaries compiled on good hardware any day. Seriously.

Big News

Bill Shatner’s New CD.
I should like pre-order it from amazon or something.
I’m still looking for a copy of Transformed Man. I would consider performing unnatural acts for it. I said consider. But for a piece of Musical Genius, some things are not out-of-bounds.

Dark things

Dark thing number one: Murphy’s Stout. My dad bought some of this a few weeks ago, and convinced me to try one. I don’t like Guiness at all, and tend to prefer lagers and ales to heavier beers.
Dark thing number two: Rebecca Gomez of Fox News. I guess I’d never seen her before, or whatever. She’s a h0tt13. I dig the jet-black hair. Of course, Fox has many hotties. Infotainment at its best. (My personal faves are E.D. Hill, even though I’d really like to know what E.D. stands for, and despite the fact that she’s got like fifteen kids…Lis Wiehl….mmmmm……good-looking lawyer chicks, and I’m leaving someone out).
Excuse this entry, I’m horribly insomniac and distracted as a result.

Best slashdot post, evar

here.
The desire of computer geeks to be among the liberal elite disturbs me beyond words. If you are on the cutting edge of technology, government does not assist you….it only hinders progress. Furthermore, government is the only entity that can legally steal your creations without ever giving you compensation. And if you fight too hard, men with guns will come lock you in a cage or shoot you.
But I’m getting far afield. I think much of the animosity towards George Bush is simply what’s been going on since the “peace movement” became popular. The in-crowd are against war, so I’m against war, no matter how justified. It’s been this way for approaching a century now. You can go back to Woodrow Wilson if you’d like. Still, there are evil people in the world. There are also crazy people in the world. So long as there are evil people and crazy people, there will be war. It’s just as simple as that.
Michael Moore will become aerodynamically correct before the elite figure this out.

Shut up, Kim

Supposedly the reason the Pixies broke up in the first place is Frank Black wouldn’t let Kim Deal’s songs go on the albums. After downloading Bam Thwok from iTunes, I can kind of understand why. I mean, I guess, musically, it’s not bad. Joey Santiago rockin’ out as he normally does, and Frank does a respectable job with the backing vocals. But egad, Kim can’t sing anymore, not that she was that great as a lead before. Frank like needs to send her to whereever he took vocal lessons between “Pistolero” and “Dog in the Sand.”
I’m hoping the rest of the album is Frank’s stuff — with the exception of “Cult of Ray,” I haven’t ever been disappointed by one of his solo albums. “Frank Black” and “Dog in the Sand” are fucking genius.

More on Riddick

The Pilot has an editorial today on the whole Riddick situation. They get it wrong, and end up hypocrites at the same time.
The editorial staff of the Pilot has no problem with class warfare. Otherwise, they’d take the inititive to criticize the other politicians for whom it is bread and butter. John Edwards may well be the Democrat nominee for Vice President. Class warfare is the only thing he offers. Yet, nary a peep from the Pilot on Edwards or Democrat politicians like him. Think I’m kidding? How many times do you hear phrases like “the weathiest one percent,” or “middle-class health care?”
They also get the solution wrong. The problem is not the drug dealers. Government can’t keep drugs out of jails, much less off the street. The insane war on drugs is the reason you have incidents like the one at Military Circle. It’s time to legalize all drugs and end this battle in the streets between merchants who provide what people want, and the police who follow the orders of the politicians.

Spammer

Jason Smathers. Network d00d at AOL. Sold 92 Million email addresses to a spamming fuck in Vegas. It would explain why a screenname I have, which I’ve never sent an e-mail from, now gets spam.
Here’s his website. Enjoy. Some interesting discussion going on in the forums.
TSG also has the juicy bits from the Federal complaint.
It also helps explain why I’ve been on the phone with AOL three times this week, trying to figure out why their alpha-quality spamfigher randomly rejects messages from one of my hosts. It’s an IP-based block, so it should block *all* of them. But no, it blocks sometimes, lets things through sometimes.
And it’s because of guys like him. Federal Pound-Me-In-The-Ass Prision for you, boy.

Hitchens pwns up on Michael Moore

From Slate. I seriously dig the Orwell quote, and it’s patently true.

The majority of pacifists either belong to obscure religious sects or are simply humanitarians who object to taking life and prefer not to follow their thoughts beyond that point. But there is a minority of intellectual pacifists, whose real though unacknowledged motive appears to be hatred of western democracy and admiration for totalitarianism. Pacifist propaganda usually boils down to saying that one side is as bad as the other, but if one looks closely at the writing of the younger intellectual pacifists, one finds that they do not by any means express impartial disapproval but are directed almost entirely against Britain and the United States …

*cough*Every war protester since Korea?*cough*
Pretty much. And it also explains the fascination with Communism among many in the Baby Boomer generation during the 1960’s and 1970’s.
