The new face of Gaza

I’m tired of tit-for-tat violence, anywhere, by anyone.

Everyone loses, especially the innocent.

Tethering trials

by @ 6:55 am. Filed under Business, Personal

Well, I finally got tethering to work between my Moto Q9m phone and my Ubuntu 8.10 Aspire One.

(For you non-techs that means I can get to the internet from my notebook computer using my wireless phone’s internet connection)

Speed isn’t awesome, but it’s not dialup:

Do enjoy the holiday, brought to you by capitalism and the hyped need for massive materialism.

Don’t forget, spend, spend, spend if you want to be a good little American.

Bush and security

by @ 2:23 pm. Filed under Politics

I keep hearing how Bush’s policies have saved the USA from terrorism. But when anyone asks how we have been saved we get something akin to “We can’t tell you, then the terrorists would know we know”.

To me this sounds like the old joke:

A: Why are you blowing that whistle?
B: To keep away elephants.
A: There are no elephants around here.
B: See, it’s working.

If we don’t have any evidence of how a policy is working we cannot just take no information as proof that a policy is required.

The snow must go on

The road was blocked this morning by a bus that slid sideways into a parked car. Thankfully not my car.

So much for stimulating banks to lend

by @ 9:17 pm. Filed under Business, Personal

So today I got a letter in the mail from one of the banks I have a credit card with.

This letter is in reference to your credit card issued by Barclay’s Bank Delaware.

In a recent review of your account, we noticed that you have not used your Mastercard account for a long time. To help you better manage your credit accounts, we have closed your account.

Please destroy any credit card(s) associated with this account as well as any convenience checks you may have in your possession, as they are no longer valid.



Now I have *perfect* credit. I had not used the card in about 6 months, which does not seem like an overly long time to me.

They are owned by the Barclay Group out of London, so they were not part of the TARP program at all, but cutting off lines of credit to people that are extremely low risk does not seem like what any market needs right now.

Christmas Crush

by @ 6:24 am. Filed under Personal

Well, all the gifts I need to buy have been bought, packed and mailed off.

Now I get to sit back and wait another year before I have to go through that again. (Can you tell I just LOVE christmas, heh.

I need to plan ahead better.
