I know I’ve been abnormally quiet for the last few days, which can be attributed to two things: 1. I’ve been out of town, 2. ain’t nothing been interesting enough for me to write about. Sure, I could write about the lunacy of a $10,000 Virgin Mary Rold Gold Pretzel on eBay or Britney being allowed to see her kids in all her full frapp & Marlboro glory, but why bother? Slow news week, I guess. Heck, I wasn’t even all that enthusiastic about Castro’s retirement. I mean, the guy died 10 years ago. I think they just ran out of Castro look-alikes and his corpse is becoming too stinky for “Weekend at Bernie’s”-style antics.
Maybe I’m just depressed.
There just hasn’t been much to get me riled up or stoked in the news lately. There was that little blackmail effort against MSFT levelled by a blackhat hacker this week. But I’m always blathering on about the evil empire and I really need a new target. My old pals at McAfee have also finally found out that spam in non-English languages is a neato-keen way that hackers can launch targeted attacks against specific countries. Doy. Welcome to the 21st century, guys. And the sedentary mini-MSFT that is Symantec scored a spot on the Top 10 list for Most Pirated Software. Yawn! Poor John Thompson will have to get the gold faucet for his guest bathroom instead of the platinum. Pity.
Like I said, nothing interesting happening.
I’m off to Europe for a couple of weeks tomorrow. Sorry in advance for the lack of posts…
