10:15 am - Rally for the Values Voters Debate


Who was the ONLY candidate to have supporters outside the Values Voters debate? RON PAUL Which candidate had a tug boat, all painted red, white, and blue, going up and down the New River tooting its horn? RON PAUL Which candidate had yard signs and banners posted all over downtown? RON PAUL Who was the ONLY candidate to have a public reception for their supporters after the debate? RON PAUL

You didn’t see that on your TV or in your newspaper did you? Do you ever ask yourself why? Maybe you should. There were at least 100 Ron Paul supporters standing in front of the Performing Arts Center waving signs, holding huge banners, and chanting it up for Ron Paul big time! There wasn’t a sign or supporter for any other candidate for miles. A Hillary Clinton follower, who said he just got out of prison, harassed the Ron Paul supporters to the point that he got himself arrested by the police. What is it about Hillary that attracts these whackos? Peaceful Ron Paul rally’ers are really getting sick and tired of these stunts.

If there were this level of support for one of those bottom 4 candidates, who have a lot of money, you can bet it would’ve been reported. Now what TV channel recorded and observed all the above but didn’t think it was important enough to tell you. The local NBC Channel 6 that’s who!

Other Republican candidates might have more money but ONLY Ron Paul has real human beings backing him up and that’s what the media and the money candidates want to make sure you don’t see.

5:23 pm - regex
I was looking through some PHP code I'd written a while ago (specifically a CMS with an extensive tag engine), and I came across a regular expression that reduced 60~ lines of PHP loops, conditionals, etc. to one line.



Figure out what that does and win a prize!

10:51 pm - Ron Paul
After watching tonight's debate, especially the dialog between Ron Paul and Giuliani, I'm amazed at just how stupid most of the men on the stage are.

First of all, Ron Paul is the only rational candidate. He doesn't allow his personal beliefs or agenda to affect his positions - he is a strict constitutionalist, and follows it, regardless of his opinions (e.g. abortion). Fox News made it overtly clear that they wanted to portray him as not being a 'true' Republican.

Ron Paul made it clear that extremist Arabs didn't attack America because they hate freedom and "love death". This is absurd. American's are quick to forget their history, and are so absorbed in the here and now that we sometimes fail to recognize the consequences of history. Paul gave very concrete reasons for why terrorists would have wanted to attack America. He didn't give an explanation, he gave a reason. Of course, Giuliani, the hero of 9/11 attacks, associated Paul as a conspiracy theorist.

It only makes sense that when one country attempts to position themselves as the world's authority that the other countries wouldn't naturally follow along. Paul even questioned what we'd think of China installed military bases close to home. For whatever reason, the Republican and Democratic base largely feels that the solution is expansion and spending. At least Democrats make this obvious.

When I hear Ron Paul speak about how we should be more fiscally conservative, limit our spending, and cut back welfare, the 'departments', etc. I can't help but not understand why he's so alone in his opinions. It appears that the candidates don't understand really what the foundations of our country are, or truly what's happening right now in the world. I imagine the candidates are drawing on the fact that the American population, as a whole, is clueless about this, and feels that by continually pushing that everyone else hates freedom, liberty, women, whatever, is going to appeal to people.

Unfortunately, Ron Paul committed political suicide tonight - at least under the Republican ticket. I'd love for the media to fairly cover him, and not put him in the same camp as liberal professors and kooks. But this won't happen.

So after 3 versions of a potential design, I think I'm going to settle with this. After the sunset, a few solid shaded South Beachesque buildings will come into view and serve as a pseudo-navigation. Any suggestions or noticeable glitches?

And yes, you need Flash Player 8.

12:33 pm - OSX86
As my Mac Mini is notoriously slow for print quality photoshop files and anything that takes processing power, I decided to try out putting osx86 on my amd64 PC (I *hate* using Adobe CS in XP).

Has anyone done this (outside of booting in in VMWare with a flat image) with a DVD iso of Tiger?

Paris Burns. Let's Roast Frankfurters!

When the anticipated melding fails and riots ensue, the response is to try to buy, or legislate, the impossible. Invariably the cry arises that the government hasn’t done enough for the indigent arrivals. We must spend more money on welfare, on schools, on special programs to raise the unraisable and mix the immiscible. It is our fault really. We need to change our outmoded attitudes, require classes on ethnic sensitivity, celebrate the culture of the new incompatibles. We will have National Islamic History Week, and children will make mosques from construction paper. That will fix everything.

I've finally successfully compressed endless if-then loops, which would take upwards of minutes to cycle through if there are thousands of database records, into one small MySQL query that takes, at most, a second or two!

SELECT lineage.ID, friends.EMAIL, (lineage.DEPTH - (SELECT another.DEPTH FROM LINEAGE AS another WHERE another.ID=$engine->user_info['uid'])) AS depth FROM LINEAGE AS lineage LEFT JOIN USER AS friends ON lineage.ID = friends.UID, (SELECT my.DEPTH FROM LINEAGE AS my WHERE my.ID = $engine->user_info['uid']) AS tree WHERE lineage.LINEAGE LIKE '%-$engine->user_info['uid']%' AND lineage.DEPTH > tree.DEPTH;

I can now rest undisturbed.

7:22 pm - I can't believe I wasted my time taking this.
The Gentleman
Deliberate Gentle Love Master (DGLMm)

Steady & mature. You are The Gentleman.

For anyone looking for an even-keeled, considerate lover, you're their man. You're sophisticated. You know what you want both in a relationship and outside of it. You have a substantial romantic side, and you're experienced enough sexually to handle yourself in that arena, too. Your future relationships will be long-lasting; you're classic "marrying material," a prize in the eyes of many.

It's possible that behind it all, you're a bit of a male slut. Your best friends know that in relationships you're fundamentally sex-driven. You're a safe, reliable guy, who does get laid. In a lot of ways, you're like a well-worn, comfortable pair of socks. Did you ever jack off into one of those? All the time.

Your exact opposite:
The Last Man on Earth

Random Brutal Sex Dreamer
Your ideal mate is NOT a nut-job. She is giving and loving, like you, but also experienced. Avoid the The Battleaxe at all fucking costs.


CONSIDER: The Maid of Honor, someone just like you.

12:58 pm - Maribel Cuevas: A Great American
"It is truly weird. America, the most aggressive nation on the planet, the grr, bowwow, woof superpower, is also the most timid. Sure, I know, aggressive because frightened, the bully terrified by sock-puppets that might wait in the closet. But, my god, a kid with a burrito? In Mexico, where I live, lots of kids have burritos. You can carry one, concealed, without a permit. No helicopters and no snipers."

This country is becoming pathetic.

One day as the Little Red Hen was scratching in a field, she found a grain of wheat.

"This wheat should be planted," she said. "Who will plant this grain of wheat?"

"Not I," said the Duck.

"Not I," said the Cat.

"Not I," said the Dog.

"Then I will," said the Little Red Hen. And she did.

Soon the wheat grew to be tall and yellow.

"The wheat is ripe," said the Little Red Hen. "Who will cut the wheat?"

"Not I," said the Duck.

"Not I," said the Cat.

"Not I," said the Dog.

"Then I will," said the Little Red Hen. And she did.

When the wheat was cut, the Little Red Hen said, "Who will thresh the wheat?"

"Not I," said the Duck.

"Not I," said the Cat.

"Not I," said the Dog.

"Then I will," said the Little Red Hen. And she did.

When the wheat was threshed, the Little Red Hen said, "Who will take this wheat to the mill?"

"Not I," said the Duck.

"Not I," said the Cat.

"Not I," said the Dog.

"Then I will," said the Little Red Hen. And she did.

She took the wheat to the mill and had it ground into flour. Then she said, "Who will make this flour into bread?"

"Not I," said the Duck.

"Not I," said the Cat.

"Not I," said the Dog.

"Then I will," said the Little Red Hen. And she did.

She made and baked the bread. Then she said, "Who will eat this bread?"

"Oh! I will," said the Duck.

"And I will," said the Cat.

"And I will," said the Dog.

"No, No!" said the Little Red Hen. "I will do that." And she did.

----

The moral of this story is that the government and their taxes are the Duck, Cat, and Dog. They want to eat of the bread, but do nothing to contribute. In fact, much of the world is like this. I refuse to pay 40% to morons who don't know how to manage money or pay off debt.

You scored as Classical Liberal. You are a classical liberal. You are sceptical about much of the historicity of the Bible, and the most important thing Jesus has done is to set us a good moral example that we are to follow. Doctrines like the trinity and the incarnation are speculative and not really important, and in the face of science and philosophy the surest way we can be certain about God is by our inner awareness of him. Discipleship is expressed by good moral behaviour, but inward religious feeling is most important.

A joy it is, when the strong winds of storm stir up the waters of a mighty sea, to watch from shore the troubles of another. No pleasure this in any man's distress, but joy to see the ills from which you are spared, and joy to see great armies locked in conflict across the plains, yourself free from the danger. But nothing sweeter is than this: to dwell in quiet halls and lofty sanctuaries well fortified by doctrines of the wise, and look thence down on others wandering and seeking all astray the path of life - the clash of intellects, the fight for honours, the lust for wealth, the efforts night and day with toil and sweat to scale the heights of power. O wretched minds of men! O hearts so blind! How dark the life, how great the perils are in which whatever time is given is passed! Do you not see that Nature cries for this, and only this, that pain from out the body shall be removed away, and mind enjoy sweet sense of pleasure, freed from care and fear?

Lucretius, "On the Nature of the Universe"

Human life.
Duration: momentary. Nature: changeable. Perception: dim. Condition of Body: decaying. Soul: spinning around. Fortune: unpredictable. Lasting Fame: uncertain. Sum up: The body and its parts are a river, the soul a dream and mist, life is warfare and a journey far from home, lasting reputation is oblivion.
Then what can guide us?
Only philosophy.
Which means making sure that the power within stays safe and free from assault, superior to pleasure and pain, doing nothing randomly or dishonestly and with imposture, not dependent on anyone else's doing something or not doing it. And making sure that it accepts what happens and what it is dealt as coming from the same place it came from. And above all, that it accepts death in a cheerful spirit, as nothing but the dissolution of the elements from which each living thing is composed. If it doesn't hurt the individual elements to change continually into one another, why are the people afraid of all of them changing and seperating? It's a natural thing. And nothing natural is evil.

Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

I'm having a hard time telegraphing Alcibiades with Judas, as George Steiner is trying to do.


On another note, I'm wondering when the roundabouts of my life will take a change for the better. Really, though, what's wrong with the hermetic life; why can't I fully subdue my passions and brush aside temptation?

Epicurus writes, "I understand from you that your natural disposition is too much inclined toward sexual passion. Follow your inclinations as you will provided only that you neither violate the laws, disturb well-established customs, harm any one of your neighbors, injure your own body, nor waste your possessions. That you be not checked by some one of these provisos is impossible; for a man never gets any good from sexual passion, and he is fortunate if he does not receive harm."
