7/19    I don't find lolcats to be that funny. I hate cats. Am I the
        only person in the world who thinks this way? Lolcats haters,
        please unite and speak up!
        \_ guess i wont be seeing you at ROFLCON
        \_ I don't think anyone on the motd thinks they are funny, hence the
           total lack of links to them. At the very least, everyone here
           recognizes that they would not be popular here.
           \_ Well you're wrong, some of us do like LOLcats.   We just dont
              feel the need to desecrate them by adding them to the motd
              drivel. -LOLCatLover
        \_ I like cats, dislike lolcats.
        \_ I thought it was funny for the first few times, but now its been
           way overdone and overused.  LOLSpeak in general is just annoying.
           Be careful if you stop by the office as you might be assaulted by
           it for a while. :P
        \_ How can you deny Monorail kitteh? OMG ROFL!

7/20    A solution I like better for vertical tabs in Firefox:  Tab Kit
        Ironically, I had to download the xpi file using Opera.

7/20    If you disliked the Obama cartoon, did you see the McCain cartoon from
        last month's Rolling Stone?
        \_ Don't you guys ever get tired of trying to "work the refs"?

7/19    Why is OpenDNS popular? It still forwards me to ads when I go
        to an invalid domain. That is really annoying.
        \_ For one thing, they were never vulnerable to the latest round of DNS
           \_ i think the latest round of dns spoofing attack was overblown.
              yes there was a security hole... but no one ever exploited it.
              and it would have gone away when your cache refreshes from
              the authority.
              \_ Considering the full weakness hasn't been published yet, I
                 wonder how you came to that conclusion?
        \_ OpenDNS is useless because my VPN requires that I get a
           domain error the first try before going to the company's DNS.
           OpenDNS forwards me to a bogus advertising site if my domain
           is bad. You know, I always use, Level3. It is trustworthy
           and works. 95% of the admins I know use
2008/7/20-23 [Computer/SW/Unix/WindowManager] UID:50639 Activity:nil
7/20    I using Gnome/Ubuntu.  I would like to have it autologout after about
        30 minutes of use.  (Even if it's stil lbeing used.) Is there some way
        to do this?  (Sort of like what happens at the library.)
        \_ Sure. Write some code to kill the session after 30 minutes.

7/20    Does my encrypted disk LVM everything partition scheme make my
        laptop consume a lot more power than if I weren't using encrypted

7/20    Oh, that crazy Obama, he couldn't get the Brandenberg gate, so he
        switched to Hitler's favorite monument of militaristic dominance.,1518,566920,00.html
        Not that he could have asked any German reporters about this.  (Washington Post)
        \_ Yes, because Obama LOVES HITLER!  He's a crazy secret muslim
        \_ Perhaps it is part of Obama's effort to reach out to White
           \_ Don't forget he's a commie who wants to raise all our taxes
              to 100% and outlaw all guns except if the state needs to use
              them in an "on-demand" abortion.
              \_ HITLER!
                 \_ Um, deal with it. When Obama wins, you'll have to learn
                    to live with this crap for the next 4 years just like
                    everybody had to deal with BUSH=HITLER nonsense for the
                    past 8 years. It's a small price to pay for having your
                    team finally win one.
                    \_ You are missing what is important here.  Obama is
                    \_ Wait, you mean you stopped calling Dems HITLER, LIAR,
                       and FLIPFLOPPER when Bush became Pres.? Your weak sauce
                       is old news.
                    \_ Not sure Obama is going to survive 4 years with all
                       the gun-toting whackos in this country.
                       \_ The gun-toting whackos in the Secret Service will
                          protect him just fine.
                          \_ Just like they did JFK and Raygun.
                             \_ Yeah, too bad JHJr assassinated Reagan. Oh,
                                wait, he _didn't_. Secret Service hasn't
                                lost anyone since JFK. Get over it.
                                \_ Oh yes, because Reagan and Brady managed to
                                   survive I guess that means the SS did its
                                   job. Maybe Obama will just be a vegetable
                                   so you can still stand by your stupid point.
                                   \_ Right, it's easier for you to imagine
                                      that the Secret Service is incompetent
                                      than to simply accept that the fact that
                                      no one's been assassinated since JFK is
                                      a result of professionalism.
                                      \_ Only in your world is the POTS being
                                      \_ Only in your world is the POTUS being
                                         shot and nearly dying considered a
        \_ Perhaps it is part of Obama's effort to reach out to the White
           Supremicist vote.
