Links links and more links

This isn't my usual bitch session. No, it's a chance to show you some of the material i read almost daily.

I read the online comic User Friendly. It's great. Darl McBride is made out as a crazed CEO that is hellbent on stopping Linux to the fact he says that everything that goes wrong in his life is the fault of those "damn Linux hackers".

Recently I read an article on how the DMCA is much like prohibition in the 1920's. It's asbestos. And you know, it's just like they say. Asbestos, it'll kill ya.

Here's an excerpt from Slashdot (which I also read):
mkraft writes "A gamer fed up with his new Xbox 360 crashing every 20 minutes has fixed the problem by raising the power supply off the ground with some string. Goldeneyemaster over at the GameSpot forums indicates that the main reason for his Xbox 360 freezing up is the power supply overheating. The solution is to lift the power supply off the floor and allow the air to circulate better around it."
And here's another excerpt from Slashdot, mainly about a 3D FPS game in javascrpit.
axonis writes "Benjamin Joffe has developed Canvascape - "3D Walker", a simple javascript browser based 3D first person game engine that shows off the capabilities of the Canvas tag found in Firefox, Safari and Opera. " Don't expect much except a proof of concept ;)

here's a article about Mapquest and it's technologies

A article on Reuters Oddly Enough about cars being hijacked in a forigen country and the citizens doing way more to stop it than the police could dream of.

And finally, don't talk on your cell phone when driving. It's just stupid, and if I cath ya doing it, i'll kick your ass.
