Don't put product in the water

by crivers In reply to t3h bl0g

<P>I saw the following story today: <!--StartFragment --> </P><br /><P><A href="http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/11/27/oilspill.philadelphia/index.html">Ship Spills 30k Gallons of Oil Near Philadelphia</A></P><br /><P> </P><br /><P>I couldn't help but laugh at the Chief Petty Officer of Coast Guard say...</P><br /><P><!--StartFragment --><br /><BLOCKQUOTE>"When they were pulling into the Citgo facility in Paulsboro, New Jersey, they were at an eight-degree list, which means the vessel was leaning a bit," Edwards told Philadelphia's WPVI-TV. "<STRONG>They noticed product in the water</STRONG> and that's when they noticed they had a problem."</BLOCKQUOTE><br /><P><BR>Is it me, or have we totally gone geek in our own respective careers? I talk about computing/techno/network/etc subjects in my own lingo (which the tech field is probably worst out of all) and it's just intriguing to see others do the same in their own language. </P><br /><P>Go Guard, eh? </P><br /><P></P><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://t3h.blogspot.com/2004/11/dont-put-product-in-water.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

It's easier to tell the truth than a lie -- according to your brain

by crivers In reply to t3h bl0g

<P>According to a recent study, it's easier for you - in terms of brain power - to tell the truth than to tell a lie.</P><br /><P>See: <A href="http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/science/11/29/brain.lying.reut/index.html">http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/science/11/29/brain.lying.reut/index.html</A></P><br /><P>Excerpt: <!--StartFragment --> <BR><br /><BLOCKQUOTE>There were clear differences between the liars and the truth-tellers, Faro's team told a meeting in Chicago of the Radiological Society of North America.  "We found a total of seven areas of activation in the deception [group]," he said. "We found four areas of activity in the truth-telling arm."  Overall, it seemed to take more brain effort to tell the lie than to tell the truth, Faro found.</BLOCKQUOTE><br /><P>And if you think about it -- after you've lied you exert more energy, time, and emotions into either making the lie not hurt you or anyone else by trying to cover it up or in reconciling the lie and rebuilding afterward.</P><br /><P>God always knows us best.  That's no lie.</P><br /><P><!--StartFragment --><I>Prov 19:5 - A false witness will not go unpunished, And he who tells lies will not escape.</I> </P><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://t3h.blogspot.com/2004/11/its-easier-to-tell-truth-than-lie.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Long time, no blog

by crivers In reply to t3h bl0g

<P>Yeah... it has been a while.  Two and a half weeks.  Where have I been?  Definitely nowhere near sanity or contentment that's for sure.  Lots of struggles going on with time, work, and energy.  I'm ready for the Christmas holiday break.  I am going to take off two days early next week before my work closes down for the holidays (until January 3) and I am hoping and praying I don't get called in for some trivial matter that common sense can solve.</P><br /><P>As for holiday preps -- everything is pretty much done.  Shopping is about 98% complete and plans have been made.  Now to finish the shopping, sit back, and enjoy the time with friends and family.</P><br /><P>This is all I have left in me for now.  I'm exhausted at this week's end -- mainly from work.  Good news is that my job description has been selected for review (finally) and maybe now someone will finally realize what all goes on in my day-to-day work.  I've been struggling to "keep my head above the water" so to speak with everything that's gone on at work.  Too many projects going on, with more on the way, and with little time or resources to do it in.  Yet each thing is wanted and required for my work to be considered successful and productive.</P><br /><P>Where's that contentment post I wrote a while back... ?</P><br /><P><FONT size=1><A href="http://http://t3h.blogspot.com/2004/11/art-of-being-content.html">Here it is!</A></FONT></P><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://t3h.blogspot.com/2004/12/long-time-no-blog.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Blogger's block

by crivers In reply to t3h bl0g

<P>Yep.  It's been a while.  But hey, I had a great holiday and I took a break from just about everything -- work, computers, stress, and yes even blogging.</P><br /><P>For the first time in 6 years (and since I've been married) I stayed HOME to enjoy the Christmas and New Years Day holidays.  It was GREAT.  It was RELAXING.  I didn't need a vacation after the vacation.  I got exactly what I wanted -- a lot of time off with my family.</P><br /><P>So now what?  The new year has plenty in store.  There's much to do at home (besides chop up trees from the recent ice storm).  There's plenty at work -- but it's really all the same (push this paper, attend that meeting, prepare for this or that, avoid stress, etc).  </P><br /><P>The next six months are going to be pretty rough -- no breaks until June.  In June my wife will finally graduate from her masters degree program and summer (read warm weather) will take hold.  Ice tea on the back porch for my wife will be poured, John Deere will visit my grass, and my wife and I will return to a normal level of sanity.  I am looking forward to it.</P><br /><P>So as far as having blogger's block -- it was self imposed.  I blocked myself from writing.  But hey, you didn't want to read any of this anyway during the holidays anyway, did you? *grin*</P><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://t3h.blogspot.com/2005/01/bloggers-block.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Anyone listening?

IE7 on the horizon

by crivers In reply to t3h bl0g

<P>They've got a long way to go to win my browser timeshare back. </P><br /><P>I'm not excited about this in the least.  Mainly because I have to worry about how to push it out to 500 computers and keep everyone happy!</P><br /><BLOCKQUOTE><A href="http://it.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=05/02/15/1756240&from=rss">IE7 Announced for Longhorn and WinXP</A> <br /><P>sriram_2001 writes "There is now an official announcement from Bill Gates on Internet Explorer 7. It will be available in beta form this summer for Longhorn and XP SP2. The IEBlog has commentary about the decision making process that went into the new browser version." Coming on the heels of the June Beta announcement for Longhorn, if things go as planned it will likely be here in early summer. The new browser's early arrival was first discussed last year.</P></BLOCKQUOTE><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://t3h.blogspot.com/2005/02/ie7-on-horizon.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Another IE7 article - plus free spyware tool from MS to stay free

by crivers In reply to t3h bl0g

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Microsoft is finally getting some face-saving in the works. I'm happy about the antispyware tool to remain free. It works pretty well. Now I just wish it had a centrally managed console to allow sys admins to ensure that supported systems stay clean. Microsoft, are you listening?<br />

<BLOCKQUOTE>
<A href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/arstechnica/BAaf?m=160">Internet Explorer 7 beta due out this summer</A> <br />
<P>Bill Gates said today that Microsoft is planning on releasing a beta of Internet Explorer 7 this summer, but it's not for everyone. Also, Windows Antispyware will remain free.</P>

GameBiz - good for you game/company/history buffs

by crivers In reply to t3h bl0g

<P>I found this on the web the other evening -- give it a try:  GameBiz -- <A href="http://www.nino.dk/gamebiz/index.asp">http://www.nino.dk/gamebiz/index.asp</A></P><br /><P>The game focuses on letting you run a game company business and compete with other companies (and their games).  It's pretty mindless, but good if you're a game history buff like I am.  It makes more sense when playing the game if you've actually played the games, know the companies and publishers, and the big names (Sid Meier, how ya doing?) in the industry.  </P><br /><P>I'd love to work on a game (would have to be an on-the-side thing as I hear full-time game development isn't very family friendly).  A good team would be a must.  I've done things on the side, but nothing to speak highly of.  The best I ever did was create a VB game of running an ISP. Strategies and simulations tend to be my preferred type of game.  I also like RPGs, but I am not so sure I am a good storywriter.</P><br /><P>Anywho, give it a try -- you might like it. :)</P><br /><P> </P><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://t3h.blogspot.com/2005/02/gamebiz-good-for-you.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>
