Hating Windows September 3, 2007

I’ve been using XP for a long time now on a Dell XPS M140. The machine is an improvement over my last machine which was a Windows 2000 box but some things annoy me.

First is the wireless performance. We have two of these XPS boxes, one with the Intel wireless the other with the Dell wireless. The Dell wireless card is based on a Broadcomm chipset and I can tell you from experience that it sucks ass.

My Intel card is no picnic either. Well, maybe it’s not the card itself but the absolutely fucked DHCP implementation of Windows. If you read the details regarding DHCP and then contrast it to the implementation that MS used for Windows you’ll see what I mean. It’s fucked.

The other day I got the chance to play with a co-workers new MacBook Pro. First off the machine is light as a feather and has cool features that my Dell lacks, like built in camera, illuminated keyboard, anti-shock disk parking, etc. The one thing it doesn’t have that my XPS does is a card reader that’ll use SD, xD and mMC cards. Oh well.

But what really floored me is that using VMWare my co-worker was able to run a full install of Windows Vista on it. Virtualization rocks.

And don’t tell me that Vista will solve my woes since it won’t. It’s a bloated piece of shit.

So come tax time I think I’ll be ditching my PC and going Mac. Can’t say I didn’t warn you.

Once again, our Perennial Favorite gets her ass handed to her February 2, 2007

So Shirley Phelps-Roper and her spawn were on Tyra Banks’ talk show. Tyra handled it well. If I ever run into Mrs. Roper I can tell you I won’t handle it well at all. As a flaming atheist she and I might come to blows.

But her spawn – they’re brainwashed idiots. The best thing that could possibly happen is for a freak accident of nature to wipe out the entire Phelps clan. And if nature isn’t willing, there are always other ways.

Anyhow, in this instance Mrs. Roper was very calm. Not her usual crazy self. But I have to wonder why people keep putting that bitch on television or giving her and her crazy group any more press time. I can see the entertainment value of it, but hasn’t it been overplayed already going all the way back to old Fred himself?

The past few months have been delightful. First we saw the Reverend Ted Haggard exposed as a homosexual homophobe. Then of course we hear that the Republican darling Coulter is being investigated for some election fraud.

And now we get to watch our favorite fruitcake, Shirley Phelps Roper sell crazy on none other than the Faux News channel. But this time Phelps-Roper gets her ass handed to her on television.

It seems that Phelps-Roper has become a cause celebre with the American news establishment. And this video shows what happens:
