Illuminati

Amusing factoid of the day

This is the second time that someone has won the Nobel Peace Prize for not being George Bush:

But the chairman of the secretive Norwegian Nobel Committee said bluntly that the award was meant to slam Bush's policy on Iraq.

"With the position Carter has taken...(the award) can and must also be seen as criticism of the line the current U.S. administration has taken on Iraq," Committee head Gunnar Berge, a former labor minister, told reporters.

Things that have annoyed me recently

1) The Laser printer near my desk prints duplex for _every_ print out, even if there's only stuff on one side.  So you stand there while it puts out a blank page, pulls it back in and then prints on the other side.  How on earth did that make it through quality control?

2) WiFi routers that come with default WiFi SSID names that are the same for every router.  All Linksys routers, for instance, seem to have a default of "Linksys".  Which means that if I'm walking past one as I wander for the bus in the morning and check my email it asks me if I want to connect to the Linksys router.  Which I would, if it was the Linksys belonging to whichever of my friends had the original router I paired my phone with - but not with every other Linksys on the damned planet.  SSIDs should be (near)unique!!!!  (This maye have been bothering me for a while).
ZOMG!

I'm going to hell


But not until after Julie comes home, the Indian takeaway arrives from Kismot and we've eaten it while watching Mad Men.

I just handed the plumbers a thousand pounds.  That's that done.  Now it's just the damp to sort out!
