Comment Pretty bad (Score 1) 3

It's pretty bad, with all the "improvements" that they've made. I still get by here every once in a while - more, lately, in fact - but there's not much to see.

I hope things are well with you.

Comment Happy Birthday! (Score 1) 1

Or in Irish: Lá breithe sona duit!

I hope that this day finds you well and happy. Best wishes for the coming year.

I do not get to Slashdot much these days, but some things are important. :-)

I think that its a bit simplistic to exclude it. Some events do actually have multiple causes. The real world is complex, and rarely aligns with a fox news soundbite.

And it never aligns with President Obama's talking points but that doesn't change the fact that the protests had nothing to do with the video. In fact, it wasn't even the pretext for the gathering.

Journal Journal: [Beloved] A Pretty Song (redux) 2

From the complications of loving you
I think there is no end or return.
No answer, no coming out of it.

Which is the only way to love, isn't it?
This isn't a playground, this is
earth, our heaven, for a while.

Therefore I have given precedence
to all my sudden, sullen, dark moods
that hold you in the center of my world.

Comment Re:The every other Windows version sucks theory sa (Score 1) 8

You're right about 2000. But it was never positioned as a consumer OS, and that's the line of reasoning. 98 -> ME -> XP -> Vista -> 7 -> 8. It breaks down if you include 95 or 98 SE, because neither of those truly sucked.

And yes, 7 is only decent compared to Vista. Not that I've used it much; I no longer own a Windows box (and my intention is never to have another one), and at work we use Server 2008. It is possible to turn off a lot of the nasty UI stuff, at least in the server OS.

I still read. I hardly ever post. There's some poetry I've been meaning to put up here, but I never seem to get around to it.

I do like seeing your JEs. And the occasional funny back-and-forth of people who take this all so seriously.

I read Multiply from time to time, but I have trouble remembering who is who, outside of the core people. Most of my interaction is on Plurk.com these days. Think of it as threaded Twitter - the minimalism appeals to me. Also much busier in real life, but I have started writing a blog. No one reads it, though. :-)

I am sorry to hear about the earthquake, and about your father. Please accept my condolences. My father is undergoing cancer treatment, and the outcome is uncertain. I am struggling a bit myself these days, but things will get better. Thank you, and best wishes and hopes for the coming year.
