  • DRM vendors thanks for shutting down...

    [Wow 2 posts in one day and neither about running!] There are a lot of people out there who hate DRM with a passion. I'm not one of them. I understand that its a necessary evil in a world where most people will get something for nothing if they possibly can. Though I disagree with some of the high...

  • How to be annoying at a conference

    Last week was the annual(ish) MVP Summit here in Seattle and as a regular observer of idiotic behaviour there was no shortage of things for me to watch out for. When there is free food its there for you to stock up your hotel room with. To the MVP who was loading his bag and pockets with candy bars and...

  • Retarded dog owners

    Just because your dog responds to 'sit' when you are sitting quietly at home with a treat in your hand does not mean your dog is trained well nor is it 'under voice control'. So when you take your dog to a park please follow the city law and keep her on a leash. Yelling "Sally"...

  • Airline Logic

    I just returned from a trip to GDC in San Francisco where United Airlines moved themselves very low down my list of airlines to choose if all other things are equal. I never actually say "I wont fly them again" because airlines are all much the same bunch of idiots and one year United may be...

  • Tax refunds are for fools...

    Yes its that time of year when the TVs are full of people promising you big refunds and mates bragging about their $2500 checks and how they are going to live the American dream by spending the refund on something they don't need. When I tell them that I owe $100 and I'm happy about it they seem...

  • How to be obnoxious on a plane

    Continuing my ranting from my vacation: Recline your seat while you are at the airport and then feign innocence when the air hostess comes to tell you about it Recline your seat even though you are not going to sleep - the British guy behind you appreciates the lack of space Bounce on your reclined seat...

  • How to be obnoxious at Disney World (part 2)

    If your kid is sick make sure you take them to the parks and teach them about sharing Just because all the other kids are in school doesn't mean you can't save some money and go to Disney in January - its FAR more important for your kid to see Mickey than get an education and you can annoy all...

  • How to be obnoxious at Disney World

    Don't walk in a straight line - if you weave about it will increase the amount of walking you do. If you feel like stopping JUST DO IT. Don't bother checking behind you as the surprise will just add to the Disney magic If you see a space to watch a show just shove your way through and don't...

  • Did the writers strike start last season for Heroes?

    Let's start by saying how much I love my DVR - I have 3x5000 series Replay TVs (the DVR that lost the Tivo/Replay TV war!) which are beautiful machines. They stream content around my house and I can even get episodes that I missed thanks to a now disabled feature and a website to help me find friends...

  • Tell the truth Maxim magazine - you messed up big time!

    Back in the midst of the .com boom of the late 90s the internet was a truly wonderful place to visit for cheapskates like me. Everyone was offering 20% off coupons, people had pricing mistakes every week because they hired their nephew to do their eCommerce site and there was as much free stuff as you...
