The Dwarves are helping me!

BBC NEWS | World | Asia-Pacific | Filipino ‘dwarf’ judge loses case
It’s a fact I tell very few people about, but I am assisted in my everyday life by three pygmy giant African land snails, Bing, bob, and Jamby. Whenever I have a difficult decision they help me.

I keep it quiet as people do think it’s strange, but it’s a true help in my life!

How do you say “I WANT ONE NOW?” stronger?

Twin Dual core Xeons… Holy fuck, it will probably be able to levitate and walk on water!

My current workstation is a dual HT Xeon (socket 603 2.66Ghz). It’s still a real fast machine. I can only imagine just how fast this one is!!

Gaim stops working with MSN

SourceForge.net: Open Discussion

So it looks like MSN and not Microsoft (yeah right. Like they are different) is the culprit here. Something they have changed is causing GAIM to crash upon connecting to the MSN network.  Turning MSN off, and just staying with Sametime and AIM works fine!!

Back to MSN Messenger for the time being!

Bloody Microsoft

Bloody Microsoft!

The Windows updater did its updating thang yesterday (XP SP2). ..and Whaddayaknow now GAIM refuses to start. I’m Guessing that something here has stopped it working. The foil hat paranoid in me, suggests that Microsoft does not like people not using Messenger alternatives.

🙂

Anyway here’s to downloading the latest gaim, then submitting a bug if neccessary!
