Libertarian Conundrum
by Casey at 26 September, 2004 - 11:03 AM
From K5:

What rights would you trade for a job?

I've discussed this before but in a more ambiguous way. Remember that a right is only meaningful if you can choose not to exercise it. This link above demonstrates a damn good example of how Capitalism can come in direct conflict with Freedom.

what to eat before and after exercising?
by ben at 26 September, 2004 - 5:41 AM
so i started working at Bally, but haven't gotten my free gym membership yet. i went to jamie's picnic yesterday, and realized that i haven't had much exercise at all in the last two years or so... i played football once, and threw some frisbees and footballs around yesterday, that's really been about it...

so i decided the first thing to do is start running. then i decided that i had forgotten all of the stuff i learned about nutrition and exercise in the intervening 4 years since college. so i went looking, and so far, espn.com has the best guide yet, with information about what to eat before and after exercising.

note to anyone with an actual interest in this: i googled for exercise before eating results and also found some articles on how intermittent exercise can be better for you than continuous exercise

Reading this article may render you vulnerable to asset-forfeiture laws

"Civil liberties lawyers now speak in terms of a "drugs exception" to the Bill of Rights, [...] Throughout this whole experiment, my worst-case scenario, [...], had always been the team of agents armed with a search warrant, tearing up my house and garden while my family and I look on helplessly. I had always assumed, though, that the government would need some physical evidence (surely the poppies themselves!) or at least an eyewitness--some sort of independent corroboration of the fact that I grew poppies--before it could bring charges against me.

But after two decades of war against drugs, the power of the government to move against its citizens has grown even greater than many of us realize.

What happened to HTTP_REFERRER and Request.UrlReferrer?
by elfie at 11 September, 2004 - 10:14 PM
Very short version: Someone found my website through our Kingdom of Loathing thread, thought I was "fucking fucked up" and made a post on his LiveJournal about it.

I was greatly amused and wanted to respond by automatically redirecting all traffic from his journal to random sites like tubgirl and goatsecx. Much to my suprise, however, neither Request.UrlReferrer or Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERRER") seemed to work to retrieve the referring URL. They worked when I tested locally, but when linked from LiveJournal, it didn't work. WTF, mate?

Amazingly document.referrer in JavaScript worked perfectly fine, but that's a rather cludgy solution since the page already starts loading by the time that hits. I'd like an ASPX solution.

Actually what I would REALLY like to do is have it auto-redirect if the referrer contains specific words even if what is being targeted is an image, not an aspx page. I'm not sure if that is doable though. Anyone have any suggestions?

The Democratic Illusion
by Casey at 08 September, 2004 - 9:42 AM
If you dislike Bush, you shouldn't like Kerry. Don't think for a second that these two guys aren't in cahoots.

Here is a CBS article on Skull and Bones, and how John Kerry and George W. Bush were in it at the same time.

Skull and Bones is basically a secret frat with the stated mission of advancing its memebers into positions of post-graduate power. They accept just 15 freshman a year. Sen Kerry arrived at Yale in 1962 and Mr Bush, two years later.

Can anyone say "token challenger"?

hehe, check out this MS system requirements document... they've discovered time travel, as it is already updated from sept 22, 2004...

i guess that means the tense of the page should be future perfect? they already know what they're going to change by then, so it will have been done?

i'm already being a really nice guy and not looking in the Dell boxes that arrived for michelle sampson... so i'm thinking, i need to offset this good karma that i've accumulated over the past few months...

i clicked on something positive (to the right!), was looking through the news on there, saw that they have a dead journal, randomly clicked on the happy pepitos for 9/4, randomly clicked on rubygrl714, and noticed with amusement that she's listening to iron and wine... the band that i saw with adrienne and creighton et al. the last night i was down in st. petersburg.

coincidence? you be the judge! hehehe

pick a topic about which you wish to talk, then have someone randomly show images (on a screen, computer, whatever) while you're talking, and use those images as examples or relate them to whatever you're talking about...

I start at Bally's on September 13th. It's been a painful process, so I'll spare you the details (unless you really want to know). But Ben and I are working together again which is crazy cool. That's three jobs in a row that I've worked with him.

i was thinking today about blog to person ratio, and it seems a little strange to me how people have multiple blogs. I myself have a few that i never use, but in my defense, 2 of those were just extras for registering on a site (kuro5hin and the spoke, for example). one was just a personal one between friends when i did post on there, but interest quickly faded...

So the new 'puter's probably gonna get assembled today and I was wondering if anyone knows of some good partitioning software? Only done it once, back in the day for linux experimentation, so I really don't remember the name of the software I used.

software idea
by ben at 02 September, 2004 - 4:22 AM
anyone know of a program that would compare two documents &or files and print only the pages that had changed from the original? i.e. you've got a 300 page document that is going through revisions, and some people printed it out already, so they want an easy way to only print the pages they need, rather than all 300...

if there's not something to do this, we should make it

free mpeg2 codec for playing dvd's

Does anyone know of a free mpeg2 decoder that will allow windows media player 9 play dvd's. I know i can get free dvd players but i would love to have a codec to just use one media player in windows.

Any suggestions would help.

Thanks.

news from techdirt: backup your backups every once in a while... personally, i only use file cds to transport files from one computer to another, then i keep them around just long enough to make sure that i have a 2nd source, in case a new computer dies... this is because of how badly i got burned (no pun intended) after putting allllllll of my files from my e.mag laptop onto 2 dvds, then getting home and "voila!", i had 1 blank dvd and 1 dvd where i could read about 3/4 of the files

backups of cds and dvds however, mean less to me, having lost so many over the years... so i'll continue to use those as much as possible, hehehe

i've got offers lying around here for .Net developers that pay $reasonable to $cushiony (hehehe), and in case anyone here needs one, call me... but if you're already in the career path, i've been reading some of the articles for VS 2005, Whidbey, ASP.NET 2.0 etc. on MSDN, and they have some very useful stuff, if you have 5 or 10 minutes to skim these every day, it would go a long way, i think
