No this is not an anti-MS post. I feel sorry for them in this post. They are getting pressure from 2 sides of a HOT political issue. The issue is homosexual stuff. First let me say I do not believe homosexuality is a moral activity, but the contrary is an abomination to God as stated[…]

Pastor Stiegemeyer, a pastor here in Pittsburgh (LCMS) found an article about Frogs exploding. Exploding frogs, I wonder if we could use that on our war on terrorism.

I never know how much it could cost to get a simple tune up for a bike. I took it in today for a tune up that the bike really needs (I have not had a tune up for my bicycle since I got it last year) and the cost was more then I though[…]

Cartoon network has a parody of the lawyers commercial. Tonight they had one on about “if you have hurt your self and sue yourself for the money you may not be entitled too” Last night when I first saw it, I thought it was brilliant; the guy who came up with that one deserves a[…]

Being a Conservative in Pittsburgh is something that is almost unheard of. In Pittsburgh it is almost a crime to be a conservative, remember the 2 parties in Pittsburgh politics are democrats and “out of office” I know I will not get to vote for the major in the elections. Why do I say this,[…]

There are some people out there that want cleaned up versions of movies that are out there (I am not one of those people, but maybe I would be if I had kids) and Hollywood is upset that parents now have technology that can make sure that the objectionable stuff in movies and TV shows.[…]

Published on: April 24, 2005

I just saw a commercial on TV for windows. And from what they commercial said I am sure the people that worked on it was thinking of Linux when they made it. Why do I say this? Well one of the older FUD’s from MS is, “Linux is nice but there is no software for[…]

Nicknames

Published on: April 21, 2005

My mind started to think about all the nicknames I have had in the past, for no real good reason. And since 95 I have only had 4, these would be either in real life (3 of them would count) and in virtual life (2 again would count there). They are: Crazy Mike; this one[…]
