Because I’m so engrossed in technology the modern day plague known as SPAM (not to mention adware and spyware) annoys me to no end. That annoyance got a whole lot bigger the other day when I noticed that there were comments in this long forgotten Blog requiring my attention. What to my wondering eyes did appear? Spam in my comments just waiting to get cleared. Pricks.
I’m really curious to know the conversion rate that these spammer and comment spammer assholes get on their bullshit invasion tactics. Who are the assholes that are actually giving them conversion numbers at all by actually buying in to the product or service these frickin’ spammers are even pushing? (Seriously, do you really need to get prescription medications, rolex watches, computer software, repair your credit or get a degree quickly from a credited university? Even if you do need any of the above do you really want to try to do so by going through information delivered to you by some annonymous asshole who is annoying the piss out of everyone else in the free world? If your life were on the line you wouldn’t seek medical advice from a pop-up, right?)
Screw it… I’m going to go to sleep now since I have to start turning tricks for the man again in less then 7 hours.
OK, the truth of the matter is I love my Macintosh. I’ve got a 17″ PowerBook and it makes me feel hip, young and cool. I understand that the same can be said for buying extremely expensive foreign sports cars, but I can afford the PowerBook.
This past week I’ve been taking a lot of ribbing around the office since Apple announced that they have seen the future and that future is an Intel processor. I have no idea why I’m taking any type of ribbing on the matter since it means that there will be faster Apple computers in the world. I don’t care what the machine runs on, as long as they keep my PowerBook close to the same size and weight (and maintain the moderately low level of fan noise) it could run on a new processor made from cream cheese for all I care.
I also notice in being a Macintosh owner that I often get asked the question, “Why a Mac?” I’m not sure why I get asked this question either really, but let me answer it here for everyone: it is for the look of it. I like how thin it is, light weight it is, and the brushed aluminum is the shit. I also am very fond of the response and feel (the “flex” as some tech heads would refer to it as) of the keyboard from the PowerBook line. It’s just a sexy sexy machine and since there is nothing remotely sexy about me I figure my hardware can at least represent that.
So, to all you Macintosh Developers out there: best of luck on the road ahead and make sure all the damn programs I use will fucking work will you? (How funny is it that Microsoft is one of the companies with the most work ahead of them to have their software run on a MacIntel machine?)
On a completely unrelated note: Today I was watching HBO Family because it had Ferris Bueller’s Day Off on. Now, HBO Family promises never to have a rated R film on the channel but considering Ed Rooney gives the flower delivery guy the finger and calls the Bueller family dog a “little fucker” I’d think they might want to rething their strategy (not that I’m a prude… what family doesn’t have someone saying the word “fuck” every now and then?).
