From a recent chat between Brendan of I Hate Linux and myself...
anyone who needs this machine should just learn to except variance
I remember those things
ahh the fun of high school AP physics
we even had a digital one then... although it was easy to throw off
digits only go 1-10
but a micrometer is much smaller than 1
you can use multiple digits... and even a strange concept called a 'decimal point', also known as a 'decimal separator': http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decimal_separator
the symbol for a micrometre is µ
not a digit
beacuse the Greeks didn't have digits
You can't say 7.µ
Obama's going to change that

This is old, but hilarious. I didn't realize that Dozier Internet Law's browserwrap license actually prohibited people from mentioning Dozier Internet Law:

We also own all of the code, including the HTML code, and all content. As you may know, you can view the HTML code with a standard browser.

I guess Dozier isn't a fan of Dozier Internet Law Sucks or Dozier Internet Lawsuits, then!

A couple funnies on the Dozier Internet Law saga (you know, the guys who threatned Information Scams and executes code on your computer without letting you see it). The first three are from Brendan of I Hate Linux:
The last link is a satire of Dozier's homepage.

Loyal tdaxp readers may remember my boycott against the National Review for their childish, unprofessional, and mean-spirited "spoiling" of LOST.
Well, the boycott is over.
Catholicgauze informs me that the writers at NRO are geeking out, live-blogging from the Star Trek Universe.
"The Sources of Klingon Conduct:"
There can no longer be any doubt that the aggressive conduct of the Klingon Empire is irredentist in nature, its purpose to spread its sphere of influence beyond the Neutral Zone. This presents a new kind of threat to the galactic order, as the Klingon conduct does not comport with classic models of planetary self-interest. Rather, their intent is ideological in nature. They seek not to influence but to convert, not to find an atmospheric cushion but to create a gravitational pull toward a set of beliefs. Their evangel is by definition destabilizing and dangerous, since it postulates its own superiority, a superiority that will be demonstrated by conquest….
"The Needs of the Many Outweight the Needs of the Pelosians:"
Over the course of this magazine’s four centuries (not counting the Great Interegnum during the Eugenics Wars, when conservatism was deemed a mental defect) National Review has always endeavored to chart a course balancing idealism with realism. Even in its infancy, facing the first great existential crisis of Old Earth, we argued for challenging aggression, whether in the form of the Soviet threat or the violence done to humanity through hubristic tinkering with the genetic code. We are proud to say that our opposition to the Soviets played its part in the prevention of one nuclear holocaust and saddened that our warnings fell on deaf ears before as so many of us were marched off to reeducation camps on the Mars colonies. After the Interregnum we counseled a different course when making first contact with the Klingons and the Romulans than that chosen by Starfleet Command. History has vindicated us on both scores, which is small comfort given the terrible price we all paid for Starfleet’s stubbornness.
Welcome back, National Review!

The mainstrea media is so locked into its liberal v. conservative stupidity that often real stories are not told, because they do not fit some stereotype of what political debate should be. Fortunately, youtube journalists (the video equiavalent of bloggers) have stepped up. I agree with My Everything that the threat Bush cites is overypped, if not imaginary.
Everything has covered previous Bush press conferences before, as well as Attorney General Gonzales's disturbing testimony before the House of Representatives.
