Seven Habits of Highly Effective Spaceship Captains 
Tuesday, February 12, 2008, 08:06 AM - blogFoo
Just to tempt your tastebuds...

2. Always shoot first. Every good leader should be willing to do what he or she asks of her team. One of the reasons for the loyalty of the ragtag crew of Serenity, the ship Malcolm Reynolds captains in Firefly, is that Mal will throw himself into battle to protect his team. Whenever he has a crazy scheme or rescue mission in mind, he takes the first plunge. Lesson learned? Show your crew that you're willing to take a bullet for them, and they'll do the same for you.


Read the rest. 'Nuff Said.

Now here is a petition worth signing.

Please complete this petition so we can add your name to those who want Microsoft to keep Windows XP available indefinitely, rather than force users to upgrade to Windows Vista. With your support, we can convince Microsoft to spare XP’s fate of being discontinued on June 30, 2008.


I, for one, would welcome our .. errr... old overlords ...back.

Reddit headline:

In a stunning upset, Ron Paul loses every state on Super Tuesday!


I was unable to keep a straight face after reading this. "Stunning Upset"??? These Reddit folks aren't helping the notion the that geeks live in their own world.

Thomas Jefferson 
Tuesday, February 5, 2008, 02:16 PM - quoteFoo


"I have indeed two great measures at heart, without which no republic can maintain its strength. 1. That of general education, to enable every man to judge for himself what will secure or endanger his freedom. 2. To divide every county into hundreds, of such size that all the children of each will be in reach of a central school in it."


-In a letter to Thaddeus Kosciusko, 1810

When I did a little research, I discovered Al Gore called for a crackdown on Piracy just after ceremonially signing Kyoto.

A friend of mine switched to running RAID 0 on his main system. I tried to convince him that if he lost just one of the disks, he would lose Operating System, Files, and Settings; Everything. He replied, "It's nothing important, only Vista"
