God is dead...

| |

...Or at least the "Voice of God" is dead. Don LaFontaine, voice-over artist extraordinaire, passed Monday, September first.

"Thunder Throat" had quite the sense of humor about his job, willingly parodying himself in commercials and during interviews - in one of which he stated that at age thirteen he "opened his mouth and Orson Welles fell out."

Your voice will be missed, Don.

Sunday = spammers' day off?

It seems kind of odd to me that spam traffic as a whole for me is down considerably today compared to the rest of the week.

Have spammers decided to take the day off? Do they go to church or something? That would be odd, considering that spammers are generally considered to be the bastard spawn of Satan.

I wants me one of these

The Linux-based Nokia 810.

Nothing much

I don't have anything to post about, but I have been catching up on a lot of webcomics lately. Here are some of my favorites, in no particular order.

Primarily, they're scifi or geek related.

Have fun!

Full circle

I have a WatchGuard Firebox (the original model) that was picked up at a computer recycler after they were discontinued. They were special at the time for being an early corporate adopter of Linux.
