I’m getting about three packets a second from port 41170 on my router, which after about six hours is unable to keep up and crashes. Yes, my router crashes every six hours. This angers me greatly.
Tonight took the cake though – I couldn’t play Battlefield properly. That pissed me off more than anything. I’ve got to find a way to stop this traffic from even coming in. Who wants to help me sabotage a Blubster installation? :p
It appears MSN.com’s been compromised; a link about making a million on your 401(k) links to a porn site. Hmmm…
UPDATE: The more I think about it, the more I think it was just an error on their part. The link goes to http://edpreview, which appears to be an internal MSN server. Of course, when Firefox gets a hold of it, it does a Google “I’m Feeling Lucky” search on it. When you do an “I’m Feeling Lucky” on the word “edpreview” you reach a site called Exotic Dimensions. I’ll say no more.
In case you’ve been in a cave (or this is the first destination you have in terms of mainstream media :P), Harriet Miers has withdrawn her nomination to the Supreme Court. It’s not surprising. I’ve never heard of anyone who’s had to revise the questionnaire before. Yowsa.
Her “blog” covers this quite nicely. :P
Man, it must suck to be George W. these days. With his top adviser possibly facing an indictment tomorrow, his Supreme Court nominee stepping back, the Iraq situation not improving markedly, and not to mention the fact that a great deal of his base seems to be turning against him…man, who would have thought he’d be a lame duck so soon into his second term? Ouch.
I’m struggling with ideas for Halloween costumes, and I’d like to pose the question to my readership, however numerous they may be:
What should I be for Halloween?
I’m all ears.
CNN.com – Annan: ‘Dismay’ over Iranian comments on Israel – Oct 27, 2005
Doesn’t Iran’s government know what happened in the country next door could happen to them, too? I guess the better question is, do they care?
I was really hoping for more of a Series this year than another four-game sweep, but oh well. Congrats to Ozzie Guillen and the White Sox, they put together one hell of a run this year.
I didn’t get to watch it. I really need a TV tuner card or a filter that blocks Sex and the City DVDs from playing…
Rosa Parks died today. :( May she rest in peace.
I’ve got major, major jetlag. I’m going to try to sleep now, but we’ll see how this works out.
DISCLAIMER: If you don’t know what Facebook is, you can safely skip over this post. You’re better off not knowing.
As ridiculous as this hurricane season has been, it’s just getting out of hand now.
