Installed new Nvidia drivers (9/2/05 ones) and my system is looking *great*. Second life at a higher resolution and less crash issues. I'm going to reinstall farcry, and see how that does, next.
The higher res desktop frees a lot of real estate up, too. I'm impressed.. it's like I've got a new system. 1280 x 1024 x 2 monitors (so it's actually 1280 x 2048, if you want to get technical) it makes it pretty hard to revert to the 1024 x 768 single screen at work.
Big boss in Maryland today, opening the state with a press conference... If things were different with cej, I'd probably be going along as well. Oh well, it was a good run, for the most part.
This is the case peer-to-peer file sharers have been waiting for. Tanya Andersen, a 41 year old disabled single mother living in Oregon, has counter sued the RIAA for Oregon RICO violations, fraud, invasion of privacy, abuse of process, electronic trespass, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, negligent misrepresentation, the tort of "outrage", and deceptive business practices.
If you can only watch one Kafkaesque Flash animation about the ennui of being a giant fat chicken-juggling bear on a unicycle in a German circus with dreams of freedom, make it this one.
| Francois Duvalier |
You scored -2 Ego and 0 Ideology!
Trained as a doctor, Francois Duvalier (1907?-1971), a.k.a. "Papa Doc," became president of Haiti in 1957. Papa Doc claimed to be a powerful houngan who modeled himself on the mythical Baron Samedi, and many Haitians believed him: after all, anyone who spoke out against him died mysteriously. (More skeptical observers put the blame on the fearsome "Tonton Macoute" militia, who were paid only what they stole from victims.) What little money changed hands in his country tended to go into his. After his death in 1971, he was succeeded by his 19-year-old son Jean-Claude ("Baby Doc"), who rode Daddy's coattails until his overthrow in 1986. ("Baby Doc" proceeded to lose all his ill-gotten
gains through gambling and divorce.) No one can do that voodoo that you and Duvalier do. You may not be the richest or the most charismatic person on the block, but when you
speak, people listen. Is it your pragmatic nature that commands respect, or is it the fear of finding severed goat heads on their lawns? You know the dark side of human nature well, and you use it to your advantage. Just remember to keep an eye on your kids. You don't want some wastrel to dilute your legacy of terror.

For more info about what I'm listening to, check out the bottom of this page. I actually had the original from a copy of Dynamite magazine back in 1975. More nostalgia, rather than actual entertainment. It was one of the first periodicals I read regularly as my own. (Boy's Life supplanted it shortly afterward, once I entered the scouts.
