Bad Vista

Bad Vista

Saw this poster for some kind of talk in one of our CompSci lecture theatres today, and just had to Bad Vista it! :P

God said it, I believe it, that settles it!

Fucking idiotic.

Dear Christianity, Science isn't out to get you. Just because you selectively refuse to accept science when it doesn't suit you, doesn't mean to say that it is out to get you. Stop being so fucking paranoid.

Thank god that's over

So Valentine's Day is over for another year, and, once again, I didn't have the balls to declare my undying love to anyone.

Here's a look at some of the highlights (lowlights?) of Valentine's Day 2007.

If you get a dozen your loved!! Happy Valentine's Day

send this rose to everyone you care about including me if you care. See how many times you get this back

How shit is that? Not only does the grammar suck, but that is the shittest ASCII art I've seen since "YUO HAVE BEENE HIT BY TEH VODKA TRUCK! @#@[}{}&%]#~::*&$][]]]&" started showing up on my Facebook wall. Needless to say, nobody sent me one of these this Valentine's Day.

These special Valentine's Day *ahem* "gifts" have been all over everything on Facebook today, "...designed by Susan Kare, the designer of the original Mac icons". Yeah, as if any fourteen-year-old kid with Photoshop and five seconds away from World of Warcraft couldn't do better. They cost a dollar each, with all proceeds going to charity or something. I don't think I saw more than a single one go between sexes, either implying that the world has become incredibly 21st Century, or more likely that everyone is just taking the piss.

Frankly, this one pretty much sums it all up for me:

Needless to say, nobody sent me one of these this Valentine's Day.

Time for bed. Goodnight!

Blu-Ray and HD-DVD copy protection cracked

Already.

http://www.boingboing.net/2007/02/13/bluray_and_hddvd_bro.html

Now that the system is cracked, it makes ripping Blu-Ray and HD-DVD movies as easy as it became after they cracked the copy-protection on DVD. That is to say, very easy. All this copy-protection serves as now is to make reading these discs more computationally expensive, pushing the price of your player, and its energy consumption up to unnecessary levels.

When will people learn that copy-protection is a crap idea?
