About That iWork Virus

From the pirates are dumb category Update Jan 26: There’s now an Adobe CS4 crack with the same trojan. While I have no love for Adobe and their stratospherically priced software, pirating software always carries risk that you just don’t see (usually) from vendors. This problem has been endemic with Windows krackz since forever, and […]

Site Admin Durrr

I just realized that I had never written anything in my about page, and looking at my stats, that’s one of the first things that people look at. Oops. Well that’s fixed now with a short bio. Anything else anyone wants to know? Oh, and while I’m at it, I just uploaded a bunch of […]

My Awesome and Totally Unique BSG Conspiracy Theory

War on Photography – Jan 4 2009 Edition (Updated)

Stories like this just piss me off. Its yet another example of police abusing their powers by making up anti-photography laws on the spot, usually because of 9/11 or terrorism. Right. That’s why this police shooting at the Fruitvale BART station is so infuriating. The official story is that police broke up a fight between […]

Higher Resolution

Its always in fashion for people to make bullshit resolutions on New Year’s that they forget about on January 2. This isn’t about that. This is about the increased resolution that I’ve been able to observe my life with. I’ve been using several web apps and iPhone apps to finely observe and detail different aspects […]
