Journal Journal: :'( RIP Harry Goz (Captain Hazel 'Hank' Murphy, Sealab 2021) 1

From the Adult Swim message boards:

Adult Swim News (Read-Only Folder) - Harry Goz (1932-2003)

From: SwimBuddha Sep-10 4:46 pm
To: ALL (1 of 1)
Harry Goz, the voice of Captain Murphy, passed away this week. A message from Adam Reed and Matt Thompson, co-creators of "Sealab 2021," follows:

"We are devastated by the loss of our good friend, Harry Goz. Working with him was always sheer joy, and his talent was beyond compare. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, and we shall all miss him dearly."

Will this be the end of Sealab 2021 as we know it? If not, then what will happen to Captain Murphy? I'd put a link below to google news, but there isn't a single article that gets returned when searching for Goz. I'm not sure how he died, it was probably those jerks from Pod 6.

Journal Journal: Super vision 1

This U of R press release talks about future eye surgeries, and how they are working to compensate for the "night blindness" problem of current laser eye surgery. Then later I saw this BBC article that talks about the future of eye implants. I can't wait to get some 16 megapixel eyes, hopefully my insurance will cover it when they come out.

Journal Journal: This west coast slashdot server sucks 2

I can't believe how much this west coast server sucks. I gave it a couple of months just in case it was some kind of temporary problem.

Now I realize that it isn't a temporary problem, and it isn't just me. I can't believe how often I cannot login to slashdot. Even worse than this, I often can't get to the site at all.

Anyone else experiencing general crappiness with slashdot since they moved? Is it crappy for you west-coast mofo's too? wtf?


Journal Journal: CPU Monopoly 2

AMD's stock has been plummeting over the course of the past few weeks. According to a recent article on Yahoo! (and several others), "AMD has fallen behind Intel on technology". Unfortunately AMD "shares fell 34% to an 11-year low". Some analysts are saying that AMD will not be able to exist by mid-2003 if it doesn't get its act together. Whether AMD is better than Intel or not, it would still be terrible for the consumer if the computer industry went back to a one chip market.
