Simple Economics

Bush Doing The Robot

Me: Excuse me, sir? Could you take this and carry it 4000 miles over an ocean and deliver it directly to a person you've never met?

USPS: Certainly, sir, that'll be 84 cents.

Me: How much for you to do the robot?

USPS: That'll be five thousand dollars.

Post-WASTE or "Tired of Waiting For Silent Tristero's Empire"

Considering that development on WASTE seems to have stopped, and that it doesn't have a decent OSX client, or even a decent Linux client, and also considering that currently only two and a half people are connected to it right now, maybe we could try something better supported that serves the same purpose.

I was looking at Hamachi last night, which should work with Windows, Linux, and OS X. It's a bit harder to set up on linux and OS X, but it's at least theoretically possible. From what I've read, it's like a VPN, but easier to set up, which is really what we're trying to get with WASTE anyway.

It's a girl!

Post Mamma jokes for the aughts

In the world of flying cars and complete energy independence in which we live today, insults like "yo' mama's so fat she needs a boomerang to put her belt on" just don't cut it anymore. I believe that for Jeaun.com to remain the cutting-edge cultural exchange that we have grown to love, we need to revise these classic less-than-subtle jibes with a more forward-looking body of mediocre 1-2-liners. "Why?" you may ask. I don't know, but I'm bored and I've already done a lot of typing before realizing this joke sucks, so I'm posting it anyway. Oh yeah, and you have to be frunk.

Here's a couple:

Chicago Rock City

So, I've always though it was a simple matter of time before Aden took the helm of a rock band and busted it out Craig Finn style. While at work this evening, I thought of the perfect band name. Ready?

-The Beihl Tease

So good.

WASTE donations?

Hey everybody. This is for all those people using WASTE. The project leader is looking for donations to get a better build machine. I mean.. hell, he could be buying beer with it.. but there it is.

Also, he claims to have a Mac server version and be working on a client. He also looks to have created a linux version. haven't tested it yet.

Most of us don't have the money to do this, but I'm just throwing it out there.

New Orleans... but no so much with the horror...

I'm honestly not sure what to make of this. Except, that I think I like New Orleans a lot more...

Gay Pride Parade in New Orleans...

Ade -- that free xbox ain't what you want, mang

Although free is the right price, you would probably have better luck buying a used one off eBay, because it would be an earlier version. The current version of the main PCB requires a lot more soldering to mod than the older versions did.

Just my $0.02.


My iPod is just begging for some podcasts. Any recommendations?


A Docket, Perchance to Flex-
