Journal Journal: Verbiage: I love Amazon reviews 2

I love Amazon because of the product reviews. Even when Slashdot was promoting the Amazon boycott over the 1-click patent, i mentioned (can't find my comment, /. seems to stop comment history in 2007 :( ) that B&N was terrible in that they only have positive comments on their website. A negative comment i left on B&N was deleted shortly thereafter. Amazon, however, keeps even the bad reviews.

If you can name the process that shows the banner, just kill it. That's what i did under XP when there was an annoying process running. A friend kindly wrote the script for me.

Option Explicit

Dim objWMIService, objProcess, colProcess
Dim strComputer, strProcessKill
strComputer = "."
strProcessKill = "'***filkename***.exe'"

while (true)
        Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
                & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _
                & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

        Set colProcess = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
                ("Select * from Win32_Process Where Name = " & strProcessKill )

        For Each objProcess in colProcess

        WScript.sleep 20000

Journal Journal: Game: Game of 10

Playing the Game of 10. Make 10 from the numbers. Rules are pretty easy, and includes undo and replay. It starts in the tutorial as extremely easy, then gets harder and harder.

It's available online (javascript), with more levels in iOS, purportedly free for a few days before it goes up to $0.99.

"My pet peeve is inertia," says Trollope. "There are many good reasons for keeping your engines on in space, but 'maintaining speed' is not one of them. If you turn your engines off, you don't stop."

I have *years* of experience watching Star Trek to know that isn't true. Indeed, the only thing inertia can do for space travel is keeping horrid shows about it from being cancelled.
