Anya, the Shopkeepers of America called. They wanted me to tell you that 'please go' just got replaced with 'have a nice day.'

Without a plan, it turns out, a lot of decisions are really hard. Eliot might actually hate his shrink. Yes, Eliot is getting healthier or whatever, but at what cost? He used to be a mess of scar tissue and substance abuse, but he could get dressed in the morning without an existential crisis.

Two computers walk into a bar....

Ooooh! I know the punchline to this one!

"...so then the bartender says '000101101!'"

Sir, it's not an offence to let your cat eat your bacon. Okay? And we don't arrest cats, I'm very sorry.

I am so damn rusty at perl.

Could someone look at this: [link] and write a line of perl that would extract all the links? Note that if there's a link it's always the first thing on a line, as well as the only link. I mean, those are the only links I want.

Like a pinch on the neck from Mr Spock

perl -ne '/^<a href="(.*?)"/ && print "$1\\n"'

Thanks Tom.

Of course, now my boss has it in his head to do it in VBScript.

eta: OK, my boss says I can try that in perl. (He likes to write very short, concise programs, so I'd think that perl would be right up his ally.)

How 'bout them there computers?

I think they're a fad.

I predict that one day, computers will be as big as a house, and so expensive that only the five richest kings of Europe will be able to afford one.

Why doesn't this work?

What is even happening?

Hey are there other better free blogging outfits out there besides blogger? Something that would be relativey easy to use and would require minimal coding knowledge.

WordPress, maybe?

You always do this. We get tipsy, and you take advantage of my love of the scientific method.

Why doesn't this work?

So, did this person really do what they said they did, or is it a hoaxer who did it to a card he'd already fried because he forgot to attach a power cord to the fan's connector? ;)

Sooo, would anyone have any suggestions as to where a girl might look to find a site to download music videos that have been, say, airing on MTV2 and so on, but are not yet available from the iTunes store? I understand if no one wants to post that information, but helpful hints sent to my profile addy would be keen.

Hey. New board.

WordPress, maybe?

This would be my suggestion. I've never used one of the blogs they give for free, but I installed it on my own server and it was easy as pie to use once I had it set up. No coding at all. And it's fairly professional looking.
