You should get the Win7 theme for XP. Then get the rest of Win7. Then uninstall XP. Then it'll really look nice. ~ David Atwell

The Zune is a terribly rough piece of work.

1st gen is rough. 2nd gen is quite a pleasure to use, however. (My iPod battery crapped out right before a road trip so I borrowed my friend's Zune 2G.)

Oh, and the UI of the software is beautiful :)"

Nice to look at, maybe, but not so nice to use.

Hmm. I was hoping WPF would be a good text renderer ... but it likes to crash. Argh.

Well, I mean I did throw 2500 fonts at it. I downloaded every font from dafont. GDI+ crashes. WPF crashes. GDI is stable ... and DirectWrite seems to be okay too. Looks like we have two winners.

It's amazing just how bad many of those fonts are. Wow. Downright terrible junk up there.

I'm lovin' that sink.

I'm consistently impressed by how many horrendous fonts I've seen online. And they have the audacity to replace a character with their logo, as if we'd ever want to purchase the full, uncrippled version of "CrapWords 3.0!"

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Does it [/i]look[/i] like fun? Maybe. Is it fun to use? No way. :(

Yet, after having lived an entire year in China (where my school had nothing but squat toilets) you'd think I'd be used to them. Nope.

I hate Comcast. This is just the latest stick-in-my-eye from them.

You have no idea how much I hate Comcast internet and cable. My local Comcast provider, Mediacom, goes out of service at least three to five times a day, sometimes for as long as an hour. AIM conversations and failed FTP transfers are all plagued with disconnection messages, and I have too wait at least a year for Verizon to service FiOS in my area.

That should definitely be opt-in, not opt-out. And OpenDNS had the same thing (sans annoyance) four years ago.

I miss Adelphia.

When we were on Adelphia, our internet went down once, and that was because someone cut the cable digging or something. Since Comcast bought them out, it's not unexpected for our internet to be out for 2 or 3 days at a time every 3 months or so.

even the Bible itself might be considered blasphemous to other religions. In fact, most religious are blasphemous to other religions.

SUPER-RANT: My school teacher has now forced me to take part in the school talent competition. Actually, everyone has to, for the song at the end; but she's npw forced me to PERFORM in the show when I explicitly stated I did not want to take part to her. I said that someone else could read my poem (politely, of course) but she has COMPLETELY ignored this and I have to perform. Wonderful.
