Cell Phones Predict the Future - basically, using math + previous data (in large quantities) to predict human's behaviour - exactly the premise of Asimov's Fuondation series...This scares me - Canadian Telco Admits to Blocking Union's Website - the willingness of an internet provider to censor content for no other reason than they don't like it - well that just gives me the "big brother" corporate willies - BOYCOTT TELUS !!!...The new NHL rules rock...I can't believe those dinosaurs actually had the balls to make these changes...no-red line rule (I almost typed no red loin which might have been more interesting) might have the extra effect of forcing teams to choose more-mobile defencemen over less-mobile physical defencement to avoid getting burned, which should also help cut down on the clutch and grab...shootout rule might tempt teams to give that last lineup spot to a sniper instead of a plugger, which also should help scoring.

Toronto Image Works...got them back 6 business days after sending...two phot contests upcoming, Sandpiper Festival in Dorchester (due July 22), and one in Hillsoborogh, date unknown (around the 20th)...problem is, these contests usually want pictures of people and nature, and as anyone knows, I usually take pictures of buildings only...part of the reason is that I don't have a devent telephoto lens...or any telephoto lense, for that matter...interesting court case out west - some guy is suing the government under the charter of rights because he can't allow smokers in his bar yet the native-owned bar can...basically saying laws have to apply to all or noone....interesting if he won, as some of the natives don't pay taxes either...wouldn't that be neat - against the charter of rights to pay taxes

Mariah Carey has wardrobe malfunction , and the link is quoted as saying "..Quick-thinking organisers plunged the stage into darkness to protect the star's modesty..." (when her dress fell apart)...ok, I saw the dress (don't feel like posting the picture, kinda humdrum mood today), her "great tracts of land" :) are spilling every which way out of the dress, no way can you describe this as being modest in any context, and this is before it fell apart.

Checkpoint Charlie Torn down - historians will rue this day. The exact point where the counter philosophies of democracy/capitalism and communism stood toe to toe, armed to the teeth, with the collective firepower to wipe out humanity, for 40+ years - gone. What are they thinking?

Sony confidant you'll work harder (more hours) for their PS3...PS3 at $500, IPods at $500+...wouldn't ya rather take the time you would have to work to get these toys and go to the beach? I would...Liberals hit funding wall - I could care less about the sponsoship scandal - I think we should have the RCMP check and see what the Liberals are stealing right now - they obviously think Harper is more dangerous than Satan and have already stated in the sponsoship inquiry that they think it's legit to bend the rules if they think it's good for the country, of course loosely defining good for the country as them always being in power.

Top 25 questions in Science...xampp is the finest open-source tool I have ever used, damn user-friendly...Lemiuex on Team Canada? He's played, what, 15 nhl games in last 2 years?...Yzerman's a question mark too...no room for Sidney Crosby? I would take a shot on his young legs for a 4th line spot...I would really love it if someone (anyone) could leave a comment or sign my guestbook, just one person....just one!!!!....I know it's a boring blog, but at least it's real thoughts, not just link to or aggregate other peoples stuff...might go see the Saint John Wanderers play the Riverview Mustangs in Millidgeville tomorrow at 2:00...
