Who’s eating your lunch?

Yipee! I finally have a fridge again and managed not to sik myself with cakey milk.

It’s a shame about this defamation stuff. It seems it will not be easy at all to get ratty on people, organisations etc. via the internet from the comfort of your own home. So I’d like to take the opportunity to say that up until a couple of months ago i thought that everyone working for Sun microsystems were, in fact, Romulans. That’s right. The only humanoid representation i ever saw of the company was these little pictures of scott mcnealy, and he was always in the distance – hard to make out, and never smiling. So i got to thinking that they were Romulans.
But then, while researching an assignment i came across Bill Joy, and he doesn’t look like a Romulan at all. Then when you look at this line up most of them do look human, with the exception of this guy.
It’s not much fun to make fun of people who are down on their luck. I’m under the impression that Sun are down on their luck, indeed, their lunch is being eaten. This is what some person was saying who dan gillmour (of dan gillmour’s ejournal) was referencing once a while back. I tend to agree. It won’t be long before the 64bit processor is a household appliance thanks to Intel, and the Linux/IBM combo is really hoeing into Sun’s sammiches while Sun buggers around with those ridiculous paper filters at the coffee machine.

The LG family are eating mine.

Like the heroes of urban car chase movies, the high-rise freeway is about to come to an abrupt halt not far ahead of me. My internet connection goes kaput a week from today. It’s not what I want but i suppose it’s what I need. Will i be able to turbojump my vehicle over to the other bit of asphalt? Yes, but it’ll take a couple of weeks to marshal up the clams to do so.
Here’s something I found out a couple of days ago: TPG offer a free dial-up service – provided you only want to connect between 1 and 7am. If only the nights were balmy and sleepless to suit this arrangement. I haven’t been given the green light to use this service but if I do expect to read a big bum-licking hearty product endorsement for TPG from me. If not, then there’ll probably be a defamation suit from them to me via something not so hot about them that I’ve said here.
Either way it’ll only be temporary. I can get back onto the normal dial-up plan without having to resort to plastic, but have to pay a year in advance.
