Are the Big Three obsolete?

About a week ago, president Bush made an address concerning his outlook on Iraq. It was apparently impressive enough to convince both houses of Congress to give him war powers.

So, why didn't you hear about it?

Cause you were watching *network* television... and the president didn't *request* the time -- which they've customarily done. Ari Fleischer's comments on the event are here, and I, personally, think it was a challenge to the networks to see if their news vice presidents had the balls to interrupt commercial programming without being forced to.

And I think they blew this call.

Joel on Software

has just resurfaced on my radar, mostly because my laptop is finally working again, and I can finally get to all my bookmarks. (Yay!)

So I got to read about the Installer program he felt compelled to write, since "none of the available ones would do what [he] wanted." Reading this paragraph:

It took longer than I expected because I had this weird conviction that the entire setup process should be completely reversable, and as you go backwards through the wizard it should automatically and silently undo any changes it had already made. So even if you're looking at the last screen, if you decide you want to change where to extract the files, you can just back up and change it and everything moves and all the old files you overwrote are put back and all the Windows accounts you created are uncreated and all the permissions we granted are ungranted and the SQL database you made is unmade and so on.

confirms for me that he's an amatuer, as I've always thought.

You don't do *anything* during the panels of a wizard, you merely collect information, and then display all that collected information for the user for confirmation, right before you actually start doing anything.

Fixing the wrong problem. Typical....

He wants a bug tracker.

Does he start with BugZilla, which has 4 or 5 years of development under it's belt already? Hell, No!

Why not?

Well, *I* assume it's because he can't sell that.

Which proves that he's a moron, cause, yeah, he could.

It's the killer.

That's the part of the deployment of a large network of any type that costs the most, and it's the part that kills most new ideas these days.

Two case in point examples are Ricochet, and Iridium.

They have something else in common: they people who got soaked were the speculators who invested in the build out. Both networks went dark (Iridium almost got splashed), and then were bought out at 23:59:30 by other companies for pennies on the Benjamin.

Perhaps this is just desserts, given my opinion on public corporations...

She's 23. She's a 36D. (She says she's a 38, but I think she's being poorly served by her bra sales people.) She's got a smile that could light *up* Detroit (whence she just moved)... and she's 4'11".

I've got it bad. And that ain't good.

But I'll try to get by. :-)

But you know what the number one attraction is?

She knows how to play. I didn't realize how much I gotta have that... until I got some.

Just being a smartass, when I found out how tall she was (on top, so to speak, of everything else), I said "Will you marry me?"

A friend of mine, who got most of this babbling ([Scrubbing Bubble voice]"So you don't have toooooo"), asked me: "So, what would you have done if she said 'yes'?"

I really don't know. I might have done it.

Sillier things have worked out. And my friend Margaret married one of her customers. 7 years and 3 kids later, they're still together, so far as I know.

In any event, I *really* want to get to know this girl better.

It's the past tense of smitten.

Yeha, I did it again: went to a strip joint and fell for a dancer.

Course, hell; that's how my friend Margaret caught *her* *husband*, so what the hell...

A friend of mine was shopping dance joints, and we were at a club out on what passes for a "strip" in this county (no pun intended). And you know, it really *is* nice to see the occasional natural breasts...

A few entries back, I wrote about the WTC tower farm.

I've just looked at my counter (I used to do this about every hour; these days I do it a couple times a month).

It's gone apeshit.

I usually get 30-40 visitors a day, about 10 of which are from search engines. Since the 11th, it's been close to 200 a day, *with no referrers at all*. I wonder what that's about.

It's the 11th

and I'm going to start my day full of annoying contrarian commentary that will piss people off by observing that the office workers who died in the towers aren't heros. (The people in Tower 2 who said "It's ok; you can stay here; the *other* tower got hit by a plane" surely aren't, but luckily for them, they're all probably dead).

The firemen aren't heroes either. Not for this. For them, it's the job. They're *always* heroes -- which burning building they're running into doesn't matter too much.

That's why I was a bit miffed when I heard that Bush The Younger had proclaimed today "Patriot Day".

With the exception of the 4 guys on Flight 93, and the active military at the Pentagon, who are heroes, there are no patriots here. No moreso than anyone else, at least.

And, goddamnit, we already have a Patriot's Day.

Let's remember them, certainly. Let's avenge them, decidedly. But let's reserve honor for people who knew they were going in harm's way, might we?

ThreatCon Orange

As of 1340EDT, AG Ashcroft and HSD Ridge have elevated the Homeland Security Alert System Threat Condition to Orange, level 2 -- the next to the highest state. The threats which prompted this are said to be credible and specific, but aimed at non-CONUS US targets, mostly in Southeast Asia -- 4 embassies are being closed temporarily.

The US Military has been placed at Force Readiness Posture Delta -- it's highest level; BDU's and loaded weapons.

C'mon, guys... try us out.

I really mean it. :-)

And, after you vote... ask them to *see* your vote so that you know it was recorded correctly. Revel in the blank look they'll have to give you. Then write to me and I'll put you on the list for the Class Action Lawsuit against the Department of State and Katherine Harris. :-)

Repeat after me: "A vote is a physical object." "A vote is a physical object." "A vote is a physical object." "A vote is a physical object." "A vote is a physical object."

But, anyway, *I'm* feeling really patriotic, now... I just spent almost 3 hours with some friends (whom I will not name) who are volunteer pollworkers in Pinellas County.

I was loaning them (and helping them set up) my "Power Box", a Rubbermaid bin containing about 400 ft of extension cords, 5 or 6 5-way power taps, a wall outlet tester, etc, etc, ad nauseum...

You see, the Pinellas Department of Elections apparently bought close to a thousand of these new-fangled touch-screen voting machines (you know, the ones that don't create a physical object, and... *how* exactly, again, do we know that no one snuck into the polling place over night and monkeyed with the machines?)... and didn't buy a thousand *extension cords*.

The lawsuits and press coverage Wednesday morning should be noteworthy... like Florida doesn't look stupid enough already.

And they had *plenty* of warning, all on the public record, that they were doing it wrong.

Is consciously interfering with the public plebescite treason? Treason's a forcible felony in Florida; you can shoot someone for that.

Nextel: A Pain In The Thumb?

I don't think so.

My partner Alan and I have been subscribers to Nextel since ... hell, must be a year ago Christmas.

And I've found it's an issue of expectation management. The customer service lines aren't open 24x7, which I think is sort o' stupid for a company that's purportedly marketing primarly to businesses -- what happens if they go down off-hours (it's happened) and I can't dispatch my medical delivery drivers (or whatever)...?

And yeah, their coverage has some holes (though not nearly as many as 5 years ago), and Direct Connect isn't perfect.

But y'know what? This guy ('s wife) notwithstanding they're *still* a pretty neat idea. I get cellphone (with reasonable rates, these days), silly amounts of handset to handset time (Alan and I can go 1000 minutes a month, easy; Verizontal was murdering me), it's an alpha pager, with an email address, a get-the-news-from-CNN web browser, it does AIM...

And it fits in my pocket.

Yeah, it's a deal.

On the other hand, it doesn't much surprise me that he thinks that the new pay-by-the-byte GPRS wireless data services are a Pretty Neat Idea.

Hint: Hell No.

No wireelss data service that charges by the byte -- you know, something you have no convenient way to measure or control -- will *ever* achieve even geek-level, much less consumer level penetration.

You heard it here first: They're not offering *any* flat-rate pricing plans yet, but within 12 months from today, they will. Probably $70 a month. And if the speed and the coverage are up to it -- and I can get a moedm cheap enough, I'll probably pay it.

From the accidentally-amusing department...

According to the Pinellas County Department of Emergency Management:

Over the years it became obvious that Pinellas County's population was vulnerable to a host of natural and technological hazards that were more likely to occur, and on a more frequent basis, than nuclear attack.

Maybe Doc's Fingers Just Slipped

On his weblog, the other day, Doc Searls wrote:

I'm a professional open source advocate. I think open source is a Good Thing, as long as it's a plain and simple choice people can make, on both the supply and the demand sides of marketplaces.

I look at it that way because I'm also a libertarian. I have great faith in the unintended consequences of laws, especially those applied to subjects that are still new, changing rapidly and insufficiently understood by everybody involved. The Net is one of those subjects, and so is software

He has great faith in the unintended consequences of laws?

So do I: I have faith that such unintended consequences will make life exceedingly difficult for everyone.

Of course, maybe that's what he means: they'll squeeze everyone, hard enough that the populace will finally rise up.

I *still* think the first shot in the Second American Revolution will be the .308 sniper shell that kills Jack Valenti.

When News Breaks...

we find out about it on Breaking News, the best show on TV that you're not watching.

And you people are letting me down out there... :-)

But apparently, some people believe you have reason; Media Life Magazine's Ethan Alter seems to prefer "at work" shows that ignore the fact that the characters are *people*, with *lives*, as he notes in his piece on the show.

Personally, I disagree. Particularly with shows set in television milieux, there is sometimes a tendency to spend too much time hiding behind TV geeking -- which the producers typically get wrong, even on shows that spend rediculous amounts of money.

BN is doing a refreshingly good job of depicting behind the scenes on a news set. How do I know?

Been there. Done that. Produced the T-shirt.

There's a marathon September 2nd; all 8 shows broadcast so far. Go watch it. If you like it, write them a letter. They're thinking of picking it up... though they'll have to pry Clancy Brown away from his new series.

It would be worth it. If you're a TV geek, or know one, you (or they) should be watching this show.\

[ Update: A little more research (by which I mean "ploughing deeper into Google") shows that the Seattle Post-Inteilligencer's TV critic, John Levesque, lik es the show too.

And isn't that just a great name for a newspaper? Times. Tribune. Journal. Baah... ]

[ Update: And if you were intertested in who helped *make* the show -- since Bravo is succumbing to that moronic "squeeze the contractual credits so that no one can read them -- the promos are more important" bullshit -- here's a piece on the Vancouver (who knew?) shooting and crew. ]

Movie Titles

It's been a week for people saying things to me that suggest pieces for here... and I haven't been being nearly opinionated enough lately, so... :-)

Hollyweird has a habit of buying the rights to popular novels, beating them into submission -- so they aren't even remotely recognizable as the original book anymore -- and then selling them to the public.

Problem is, they do it under the same title as the book.

I think that might be fraud.

Not against the authors, of course; they're being paid enough for the privilege -- they're merely prostitutes.

Against the audiences.

Think about this for a minute: they buy "The Sum Of All Fears" and pay Tom Clancy his millions precisely because the book was popular and sold millions of copies...

And then they bait and switch us, the ticket buying public, who are, presumably, buying tickets to that movie precisely because we liked that book. But what we get has nothing to do with the book. And it's worse, for Clancy fans in particular, because every single movie has done things that trash the timeline with which Clancy doesn't take *quite* as much care as we'd like... but certainly enough.

He's got a new one out: Red Rabbit. E-pinion coming Real Soon Now.

I've been musing...

on what I'd do if I won the Lottery this week.

I only play when it breaks $20M. $5 if it breaks $30M, and a whole sawbuck if it manages to break $50M -- obviously, I don't spend an exceptionally large amount of money a year on lotto tickets.

But just out of curiosity, I decided to do a little Googling around on the topic.

The advice is pretty much what I'd expected it would be: lock up the ticket, get a tax account, an attorney, and a bodyguard. :-)

See, the reason I don't bother is, I figure, if you're going to go through the hassle of *being rich*, you ought to have enough money to be able to afford to do it properly...
