Weird trends in IT

Why is my CSS not working? Why oh why? If you want to comment on my design, check out and let me know what you think. But as I approach delirium, please read these interesting tidbits:

Oh, now I get this comic. It really happened. I thought Illiad was just joking around and taking MMORPG gaming to the next level. I have friends who would build up Diablo characters and set up bots to find rare Ragnorak items, only to sell everything on eBay to people who weren't willing to go through the work of developing their own characters and finding their own rare items. It's logical that someone would eventually want to purchase virtual land as well. But I didn't think it would happen so quickly. Isn't that always the case?

You know it'll happen.
It's inevitable.

After all, if people start dating in chat rooms, it's not inconceivable for them to start dating in MMORPG games.

Are our lives getting a little too integrated with the digital world? Ya think? Not that I'm a luddite or anything, but it is an interesting question for the future of our society. Glimpse spending 24 hours a day on World of Warcraft isn't anything new, he did the same with Ragnorak. But I always pictured our types as the anomaly, whereas we're getting more "normal" every day without having to change.

Go Firefox, Go!

Boo SCO! Oh, come on! This is going to continue longer? I don't even want to post about it anymore. Wake up, courts:
IBM had argued that SCO's discovery motions should be denied since SCO had not proven any of its claims after almost two years.
Seriously, this whole process should halt until that issue can be conclusively settled.

OK... kids are really strange these days.... I blame the parents. Nobody knows how to raise a kid well anymore, it seems. Perhaps that's why I'm so reluctant to try.

But that Mac Mini is very cool, I must admit. Finally, somebody who did the media centre PC right. Why did it take so long? Figures that it would be Apple.

On a serious note, perhaps I should write a serious post about the ethics of technology in our society. Technology is used for good, but obviously also for bad. Case in point: blogs are the new freedom newspapers, but American network routers are used to catch and indict the bloggers. How fun.

I shall get back to my CSS, it calls my name.
