How sad....

Palm running Microsoft Windows Mobile
How sad to see this. Microsoft is now a monopol in pocket devices too.

Shame! It is a great shame, what I see on my TV screen from the Likud party meeting. Shame on Likud, shame on the Knesset and shame on Israel. The disrespect shown to a head of state is unfitting to a ruling party.
I hope that the public will remember this day on the next elections. I sure will.

Because of the spam

Because of a spam attempt on my blog, I have placed requirement for word verification when commenting. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The great "success" of the disengagement

It's not even a month after the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, and it's all over again.

Yesterday, during the military parade organized by Hamas in Jabaliya was an explosion in a truck loaded with Hamas militants and home-made weapons, resulting in 15 dead and about 80 wounded among the crowd and militants, including some Hamas leaders. Even the PA has admitted Hamas fault in this. But what a splendid opportunity for the Hamas to put the blame for their own screwup on Israel! Sure thing they took it, and this night, about 3 past midnight more then 20 Qassam rockets exploded in Israeli town Sderot, resulting in 5 wounded. Few hours later IDF retaliated in several locations in Gaza.

If the developments are going to proceed in this manner, then we will see another massive IDF operation in Gaza in a month, or so.

Was it all worth it?

So many visitors

Suddenly my web server became "popular". And people were mostly interested in one directory. What it could mean?

Music videos hurt the music

Sadly I can constitute that in the last two years I have seen only a handful new artists that I want to listen to. The music industry became mostly industry leaving music behind. For the businessman music doesn't matter, the money does. Instead investing in young talents, they would hire another lawyer for RIA.
Back to the videos. On the radio you can sell record only by music or lyrics. On TV you can use other, less relevant to music, but nevertheless effective means like sex. And it took over. Sex rules both in male and female performances. Shaking ass and boobies took over singing and music. The sad thing, that they play the same crap on the radio!
That's why I hardly watch MTV anymore. Nor listen to most of the radio stations. I do watch the VH-1 channel, mostly for the old videos, when music did matter.

Great quote

Ryan: FireFox's tab system is ANNOYING
Seth: Just middle-click to open one... middle-click on a tab to close it... what's easier than that?
Ryan: I dunno, eating pie?
