Spaced shootout



Here is a very funny 45MB clip from the hit BBC comedy Spaced Series 2 Episode 5. This clip is comedy genius.

Let me set it up because I edited out 20 minutes or so and since if you're from the US you've probably never seen the show...

The characters
Tim- the guy playing video games
Bryan- the tall guy talking about women
Mike- the guy in the Terratorial Army uniform
Daisy- the girl, Tim's flatmate

It starts out with Bryan entering and talking about women and Mike giving a demonstration of an unspoken telepathy shared by all men. Then Tim and Daisy go out for the night.

What I cut out is this: When Tim and Daisy go out, he has a bit of weed in his pocket and has Daisy carry it because she is less likely to be searched, but when they are mugged by college students, she inadvertantly gives them a baggie of oregano that she was saving for a stew she was cooking.

Then, in the video, the punks discover it's oregano and catch up to Tim and Daisy. How will they get out of this mess? Haha, you gotta watch it to find out.

vrrrrroooommmm


That's the sound of my new smoking hot computer.

sssssuuuuuuuuuuu... boom

That's the sound of me throwing it out the window if I don't get Linux running on it. Yes, dear reader, I am currently coming to you live from Windoze XP.

gasp

SLackware works great except for one simple little matter, dma. I can't, for the life of me, get dma working on either the new 200gig or my 'old' 160gig hard drive because Linux doesn't yet support my chipset. It's like having a hard drive full of syrup which causes KDE to lock up every 10 seconds.

In some ways I'm on the bleeding edge of technology, and in other ways I'm years behind. This is the first time I've really used windows XP. I've borrowed a computer to look up something in a spreadsheet program at work a few times, but I've never actually used anything except Linux for the past 5 years. But I had been wanting it for a while to run some windoze-only apps.

Now that I'm sort of stuck with it for the moment, all I can say is... overrated. What's with all these buttons in the taskbar I can't get rid of? Safely remove hardware? Just pull the plug! Windows security alerts? Isn't that an oxymoron? It feels like such a kid's toy after using a truly powerful system for 5 years or trading in my Jeep for a Geo tracker.

Oh well, I should be working on the dma instead of whining...

British-trained police in Iraq 'killed prisoners with drills'


and the kicker, they killed them for collaborating with coalition forces.
