Interesting bit of trivia, @phragments, how one can drive through the three capitals: but one only takes 90 seconds…

this took less than 10 minutes

Friday, May 7, 2010 

The “like” button got added about 10 minutes ago.

I guess people have some issues with facebook, or get the irony. Either way pretty cool that 495 people liked it in the first 10 minutes. And that’s from 2 of 8 servers (meaning 75% of visitors don’t see it yet).

I like that.

TOR blocked on Acela

Friday, May 7, 2010 

The Acela uses a Barracuda Networks filter to prevent people from looking at things they shouldn’t look at on the train, blocking video and large file downloads and generally drawing a draconian moralistic screen in front of the internet.

Given that TOR was invented by the Navy and is embraced by the state department, it seems a bit much to block access to the HOME PAGE.Access Denied_www.torproject.org.png

And don’t visit the Mozilla search page – you might “download” something!Access Denied_mozilla.png

And WTF? dis.org sponsors criminal activity? I wonder if this has more to do with retaliating against Pete’s patent on reactive firewalls that Barracuda is probably infringing than preventing train users from getting access to Yasu user manuals from the late 90s.Access Denied_dis.org.png

Yay censorship! I really want some faceless cadre of morons dictating what information is good for me. No bad can possibly come of that.

There’s somebody near me on this plane who has atomic farts. I mean wake you up with burning eyes from a deep, oxygen deprived, alcohol enhanced sleep coughing farts. Farts like I’ve never had the misfortune to experience before.

All the more amazing because plane ventilation systems normally draw air in around your feet and spray fresh air out above you, so the flow tends to suck the farts out before have to smell them, along with stinky feet and other body odors. But somehow these farts are fighting upstream and arriving still potent and fresh.

And it isn’t just a single fart, but fast and furious. You’re just getting over the last one and starting to nose-breathe again when the next one hits. I think the guy next to me suspects they’re coming out of my ass. Each time one wafts by he covers his nose with his shirt (hard to do with an oxford, but desperate times…) and glances my way. At what point, sitting next to someone on a plane, do you say “who cut that cheese?” Does the admission that you smelt it imply delt it?

Maybe I should very obviously let one fly in a olfactory lull in a testimony of sorts.
