MT 2.64 & Daily Archives

Thursday, May 29th, 2003 · Comments Off on MT 2.64 & Daily Archives

I missed the last couple maintenance updates of MT, but decided it was time to upgrade from MT 2.6 to MT 2.64. As of this post, I’m running the latest and greatest version. This is the main reason I decided to install this maintenance release: “This release also plugs a number of cross-site-scripting (script injection) […]

Jesus was Gay

Thursday, May 29th, 2003 · Comments Off on Jesus was Gay “Jesus was gay – the University of Queensland gave $51,000 of public money to a PhD student to reach that conclusion.” Thank God. Now I can sleep better at night. I’m just disappointed that my tax dollars couldn’t contribute to this great cause.

I’m in the market for a new MiniDV digital camcorder and am looking for recommendations. From my original list I’ve narrowed it down to three models: the Canon ZR60, ZR65, or the Sony DCRTRV19 MiniDV. Any experience with any of these models? Recommendations? I’ve read the review on CNET about the ZR65 not being good […]

Doin’ the Santorum

Wednesday, May 28th, 2003 · Comments Off on Doin’ the Santorum

This is hilarious: Dan Savage solicits reader input on defining the Santorum as an explicit sex act. This one is probably my favorite: “Here’s my proposed use of the pigheaded chump Rick Santorum’s family name: To simplify my life as a med student in taking patients’ sexual histories, “Santorum” could stand for discharge. Instead of […]

Homophonic Scumbag

Wednesday, May 28th, 2003 · Comments Off on Homophonic Scumbag

After reading this article in the San Jose Mercury News, I set out to see how quickly I could find my first Googlewhack — to search for two words (no quotes) in Google that produce one and only one result. It took me about 16 minutes to uncover my first Googlewhack: homophonic scumbag, which I’m […]
