Barbeque anyone?

I’m thinking they have no idea what they’re sitting on. Or maybe they do, and they’re laughing at me. Maybe I’ll get a good fire started in there, and see who’s laughing then? 🙂

Until next time…..

Webkinz White Screen – FINALLY fixed

July 21, 2010 Leave a comment

The kids have had the famous “White screen of nothing” when trying to get on Webkinz world on one of our computers for months. Technical sites all said to update Flash Player (already running most current version) or modify a setting in Real Player (not even installed). So, got to thinking – wonder if DNS entry going somewhere weird? I looked at the HOSTS file in Windows directory – shore nuff – there were 2 entries for http://www.webkinz.com. Deleted the entries, and Webkinz-mania (is this a good thing?) Just thought I’d share in case anyone else runs into this.

Until next time…..

Hello from the dept. of pre-crime

Well, here’s the nitty-gritty: http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/Sessions/2009/FiscalNotes/House/PDF/HIN1403v5.pdf

Basically – upon arrest you get your cheek swabbed, and a microscopic piece of yourself now belongs to the state – literally. You have to serve notice in court to get yourself removed from their database, but yet they have to give permission. Wonder what happens if you invoke the right that the 5th amendment was supposed to protect, and literally keep your mouth shut? Do the “authorities” then get to forcibly take the sample? It’s nice to see how they bribe the accused (who were innocent until proven guilty) with “pretrial release” if you give the “authorities” permission to take a sample. And of course how the state was bribed with “federal funds” stolen from state residents to pass this law.
Power and greed. See what happens when we allow man to exercise authority over us?

Until next time…..
