The Murder by Perjury Park Place Log

if windows xp is smart enough to realize that the device would operate faster if it was plugged into a USB 2.0 port, why isn't it smart enough to realize that there aren't any?

whoso meddles in affairs that are no business of his, will hear truths that will not please him.

the other day i couldn't remember julianne moore's name; the best i could do was be pretty sure that either the first or last begins with J.  i'll be honest: that made me a little sad inside.

dear people who make electronic devices,
    unless you're shooting for "as small as possible", don't use AAAs.  not only are they far less cost effective than AAs, the latter gives us the option of using lithium for better cold weather performance.  on a related note, use a D in a wall clock instead of a AA.

like a corpse in a shallow grave, corruption rises to the surface.
... the defiled victim mutely screams its outrage.

i don't care how svelte the spy005 and 007 looks, if you use a nub for the negative contact instead of the ever-popular spring, it's one step shy of a moral imperative that it be long enough not to render any batteries useless.  some lashes in the public square are definitely in order.
