Journal Journal: Motorhead's Motorboat! Sept. 28 - Oct. 2 2

Last September I went on the most amazing thing ever: the first ever Motorhead's Motorboat! A heavy metal cruise full of great bands that went Miami - Key West - Cozumel - Miami. Four days of partying and heavy music.

They're doing it again this year. I've already pre-booked on Motorhead's Motorboat this time around.

Perchance did any of you go on the first or looking at this one?

Journal Journal: 6 Days After My Previous Journal Entry, I Was Dead 4

...But I was revived. I had a cardiac arrest on July 1st almost exactly 6 days after 'returning' to /.

I'm doing fine now, thanks to the first responders, police, and paramedics who were doing CPR in minutes and got my heart started again with an AED. I avoided brain damage, which wasn't apparent when I first woke up days later with the memory of a goldfish. "Oh look, a castle!" (for those who know that joke.) I now have an ICD, making me a legit cyborg.

So how's your Summer going?

Journal Journal: I'm 0x30 years old... 9

Turned 0x30 on Christmas Eve. That sounds better than 48. I expect to start acting 20 when I hit 50.

Journal Journal: Star Trek meets Candyland 5

The other day my family was playing Candyland. Our daughter was getting into it so I started playing some classic Star Trek fight music.
The music ends just as she advances to GLORIOUS VICTORY!

YouTube video here

It's awesome, not that I'm biased... :)

Journal Journal: Thanks for the gift subscription! 6

I just received mail notification that a fellow user has bought me a gift subscription to slashdot. I'm already friends/fans with the person but his email address isn't visible so I can't thank the person off-/. (wimp, change your privacy settings and deal with the spam! :P )
Not sure what I did to deserve it, but I thank you!

Journal Journal: Global warming denialists organizing downmodding campaigns 3

I have recently had dozens of comments in a row moderated down after I participated in discussions about global warming, and replied to denialist comments. This has happened several times, so it seems that there is an organized effort to remove facts from the public eye, much like religious zealots have done throughout history.

I'm not just getting a couple of down-mods here and there, but each mail about moderation contains multiple down-mods in a row.

It's a bit like the organized efforts by the entertainment industry, companies like Microsoft, etc. in the past. Almost as if mod points are for sale.

Journal Journal: iPad pre-orders in Canada enabled, I drink the KoolAid 4

Canadian pre-orders started today.

64 GB WiFi version ordered, should be here by May 28. No need for the 3G version, I can tether with MyWi on the iPhone.

My dad picked up the similar model on a trip to the US last week. Was playing with it on the weekend, awesome device. Perhaps not magical but still most impressive.

Journal Journal: Hudson River plane crash 1

It just astonishes me that they got everyone out of that plane safely. Kudos to the Coast Guard and whoever else ran that operation. It's absolutely mindblowing.

Journal Journal: My first, and probably Last entry. 1

I am writing since I have once again spent too much money on textbooks that I do not need, for purely recreational (self improvement) purposes. I would like to join bitme.org, and figure I have a better chance of finding a friend here that can invite than IRL.

I would like to be clear I am not begging, simply letting people know I am interested. If you number among my dozen or so /. friends, and feel that I am "worthy" and vouch-able, please send along the invite, it will be appreciated.

I am not the greatest of torrenters, but always get ratio to 1.5, and if seeders are rare much higher.
