Pretending to be Pretend Food

Wow. Just... wow. Maybe I could've bridged the gap back in college when my diet consisted of reefer & ramen, but even *that* is a biiiig MAYBE. "Hot dog" flavored "potato" chips...? Seriously?!? WTF!!! (Notice the lack of question marks there...) Do you hate American citizens, Walmart?!? We're starting to make the feeling mutual...

Voicemail Neophyte

After having this phone for a year or more, I finally set up the voicemail - w00t!

(Who uses their phone to _talk_ these days, anyway...?)

5 Things Spammers Ruined While We Weren't Paying Attention

The crap below is a canned message, but dig on this choice quote I cherry-picked from the article:

And then spammers showed up and said, "Hey, is anyone gonna fuck that? Because if not, we're gonna go ahead and lube up."

But they didn't lube up. They just stuck it right in and shamelessly sodomized the entire industry right there in public until, now, every free customization download we find smells like their sweaty, floppy balls.

5 Things Spammers Ruined While We Weren't Paying Attention

It's amazing how much shit people will put up with, as long as you give it to them slowly. Like the way nobody notices gas prices going up, as long as it's done a nickel at a time. But I can't think o...

Hypocrite Much (***hole)?!?

And this dude claims to be some kind of "conservative"? Some kind of "Christian"?? Some kind of "leader"??? From where I'm sitting he just comes across as a self-centered, morally indignant c**ksucker.

Who am I talking about? Oh... I almost forgot:

Back to my Roots

Allow me to introduce you to the new love of my life:

Ibanez SR505, how I love you!

She doesn't have a name, as I don't know her true personality just yet, but I can tell you that she's sleek, supple, and sublimely sexy. She beckons to me, calling me to come stroke her, maybe spank her a little before I get distracted with something else...

...wait, what were we talking about?

Tally CL "Singer-Songwriter" Post

I usually dismiss the "I'm a singer-songwriter, wanna be my band?" ads on Craig's List, but something about this guy seems... I don't know... genuine? I still have a river of funk flowing through me, and decent chops (for a thirty-something white guy), but my Achilles' Heel is that I don't have a decent bass rig anymore. I sure would like to *spank my bass a little and see what this dude can bring to the table...

Spotify/FastDelegate Rabbit Hole

I have become quite the fan of Spotify, but my arse has become increasingly chapped by the "can't play track" errors it's been giving me lately. A quick conversation with my dear friend, Mr. Google, revealed that I should probably empty Spotify's disk cache.

Like a good little user seeking the path to the disk cache, I went to the Spotify "Help" menu, at which point the good little programmer in me was overpowered by curiosity and clicked on the "License" menu item. It turns out that those guys use quite a bit of F/OSS code! By this point, the obsessive-curiosity (which makes me spend 3 hours on Wikipedia following links) had taken over, and I was spittin' new Chrome tabs aster than you can say "OCD much???".

Of the several projects I ended up learning about, "FastDelegate" gave me the most brain-food. Maybe it's because I live a little further away from the metal, maybe it's because I've never actually been paid to write C++ (except for that one time, but I was young & needed the money...), whatever the reason, this head-first submersion into C/C++ function pointers, member function pointers, compiler nuances, and all the blood-n-guts that drove these folks to make "FastDelegate" kicked my brain off its candy-ass treadmill in the Managed Code Fitness Center, and put it on a 40 mile forced march with an Assembly Code rifle in its back!

Oh, as for the Spotify error messages - deleting everything in the disk cache cleared that problem right up!
