System.Drawing.Imaging.Bitmap bug?
Topic: Miscellaneous 6:20 pm EST, Nov  4, 2008

This is interesting. wget this file:

Image image = Bitmap.FromFile(@"C:\blank.gif");

Gives you an out of memory exception. Hexing the file shows a valid GIF header to me... this is weird.

Election Night Drinking game
Topic: Miscellaneous 1:33 pm EST, Nov  4, 2008

I propose a election night drinking game:

When a state goes red, you have to drink Pabst Blue Ribbon and eat a corn dog.

When a state goes blue, you have to drink white wine and eat an arugula salad.

When you see Larry King, you pull out a crucifix and scream "The power of Christ compels you!"

Researcher: ARM a safer bet than x86 chips
Topic: Miscellaneous 10:03 am EST, Nov  3, 2008

If Dai Zovi seriously contends that the x86 architecture is a significant, unaddressable security risk to the smartphone industry, he's needs to release more details to show it.

Pretty good spanking by Ars. Hypothesizing that cell phones might be more insecure if they switch to a more well known chip design is most definitely not newsworthy. Perhaps there is something more here he cannot talk about but on the face of it this seems like of silly to announce.

Chrome beta update fixes Porn problem
Topic: Miscellaneous 9:53 am EST, Nov  3, 2008

In addition to fixing security bugs, the developers also worked on improving the performance and reliability of plugins, such as those used to view PDFs, Flash, and other rich media. With previous versions, some users experienced problems where the browser would stall or consume 100 percent of the CPU while playing streaming Flash video.

Why am I unsurprised that the first bug fix release addresses issues with the Flash plugin and stream flash media. Especially when Chrome has a build in "porn mode" where no cookies or search history are saved...

V I G E L A N D - The Vigeland Park
Topic: Miscellaneous 2:40 pm EDT, Nov  1, 2008

Saw Vigeland Park today in Oslo, Norway. Unbelievably cool.Its full of nude statues of males of females, from babies to the elderly displaying all human emotions. There was a rose garden in the middle full of all varieties, with roses still in bloom with a slight bit of frost.

London to Munich to Amsterdam to Oslo. I'm half way through and more than half dead.

Humans were not design to fly to a different country every single night only to get put to a day full of press "round tables" (no round tables in sight yet), customer visits, and training sales guys only to grab a fast dinenr and head to yet another airport to do it yet again.

Amsterdam is all around me yet the magical bakeries are so so far away...

Palin Look-Alikes Strip For Trip To DC
Topic: Miscellaneous 9:47 am EDT, Oct 24, 2008

Reporter Les Krifaton with KVVU said it was uncanny how some glasses and a little bit of makeup transformed some Las Vegas dancers into Palin look-alikes. But it was not just local girls vying for the title -- one contender made the trip from Oklahoma for the contest.

The talent portion of the show went beyond the obvious stripping, with some of the contestants saying they were ready to do whatever it takes to win the top prize.

The winner walked away with $10,000 in cash and prizes, including a trip for two to Washington for the inauguration in January.

I love Las Vegas.

Now Obama’s got Colin Powell AND Google? |
Topic: Miscellaneous 1:29 am EDT, Oct 22, 2008

When Obama visited Google’s campus nearly a year ago, he interviewed well. According to Google’s Public Policy blog, he was the first presidential candidate to have an answer to a standard question prospective engineering employees get asked.

Bubble sort. Awesome!

You should not read Steinbeck to relax and fall asleep.

I need to buy another Kissinger book.
