) comments |
In the ten years that Tracy and I were married, she was always winning
stuff. Game tickets, food, movies, DVD player, stereo, money. It was
kind of a joke between us how often she won stuff.|
After one of Aaron's ballgames we went out to eat at Culvers. Tracy
entered her name at Culvers on July 10th, for a mountain bike.
I was just notified that she won :)
I picked it up yesterday. I did not need the bike. I already have a
mountain bike and Aaron
has a brand new mountain bike. But I felt that I was supposed to.
No one questioned me or asked for my ID. I just gave them the paper.
Yep, it came with that helmet. No, my van is not purple. It was 6:15
when I took the photo and my camera messes up on colors.
(time for a new camera soon)
It is a very nice bike. Much better than we have. Aluminum frame,
Most important it's Tracy's.

The United States is known as being the world's most stable democracy.
But since the Florida 2000 fiasco,
things have changed. Europe's famous Organisation for Security and
Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) will now
be monitoring the U.S. elections. The institution normally monitors
elections in third world countries in transition,
and in crisis areas or regions where civil wars have destabilized the political process.
In november, the OSCE will be monitoring local and state elections in Kazakhstan,
Skopje, Eastern Congo, Ouagadougou and... the United
States. As the BBC reports, for some Americans this comes as a humiliation;
others see it as a necessity, since they have lost trust in the American election process.

Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy.
Providing health care to all Americans is socialism.
The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches while slashing veterans'
benefits and combat pay.
Morals and Ethics:
A president lying about an extramarital affair is a impeachable offense. A president lying to enlist support
for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.
Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a conservative radio host like Rush Limbaugh.
Then it's an illness, and you need our prayers for your recovery.
What Bill Clinton did in the 1960s is of vital national interest, but
what Bush did in the '80s is irrelevant.
|Posted By Mike on Sat-25-sep-2004 || Title: Bush logic part 1 || (0) comments |
Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him,
a good guy when Cheney did business with him and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden"
Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to
a spirit of international harmony.
Thanks Deb :)

A while ago I had Tons of family tree data spread out over several flat databases.
There was so much data, it was hard to sort through. I'm now taking this data and
reorganizing it. So
hopefully soon I will have some of the data back online.

|Posted By Mike on Thu-15-jul-2004 || Title: Slackware Baby! || (0) comments |
OS News did a review of slackware 10. They gave it a thumbs up. I have to disagree with at least one point the author makes though. Concerning the installation, I still think slackware is one of the harder distros to install.|
from OS News:
'Slackware 10 is a well-rounded distribution that will continue to make a first-class Linux server platform. Changes in the new release are incremental, not radical, and Slackware remains one of the most stable, reliable and flexible distributions available today. True to tradition, Slackware 10 is refreshingly free of the convoluted and confusing "enhancements" often added by other Linux vendors that can make straightforward system administration tasks a real pain if you don't use their GUI tools. If you build and manage Linux server systems, I certainly recommend trying a Slackware solution!'

I'm fairly concerned about the lengths that Bush and supporting Republicans are going to suppress freedom of speech in the last 3 months. It has been a while in American history since such measures have been seen.

An interesting article on OS news that asks the question:|
Is Linux becoming as bloated and slow as Windows? My worry
on the coming trend is that Linux may also become as unstable
as Windows. So what should happen? http://www.osnews.com/story.php?news_id=7324
