    Can-Spam Law went into effect in beginning of 2004. Until then, there were hardly any laws.

    I won't talk about specifics to what I was doing. But in general, here are the laws commonly broken by most spammers:

    - using hacked proxies

    - fake subjects

    - adult language

    These are all banned under CAN-SPAM and apply to all unsolicited email communication.

    I got sued because I signed up to be an affiliate for a product. I never really spammed for that product. But when they went after the owner of that product, he turned over the database of all affiliates to Big Corp. and they sued everyone in it. They subpeon'd all paypal accounts associated with each email. And then they subpoena'd all bank accounts associated with each paypal account. I was able to settle by giving away all my savings between Big Corp and the lawyer repping me.

    I swore never to do anything illegitimate from that day.

    It was like something out of my worst nightmare. A crowd of people in Borders. My fiancee and I walk in and I see tons of people in a line holding copies of Glenn Beck's new book. A cold chill runs down my spine. As I walk towards the front of the line there he is... Glenn f'ing Beck.

    I wish I had something I could have shouted out to him or to the line but was frozen in the moment. He also had no less than five police officers surrounding him and a few Borders employees. The only thing I could think of was to snap a shot with my cell and share this. This was in Providence, Rhode Island at the Providence Place Mall.

    In honor of your post I just copy/pasted my oldest CD-R over to my hard drive. "MP3 Collection #1", burned 10/12/1997 (3M Imation disk, labelled with sharpie). Zero errors.

    Now that's still five years less than 1992 of course, but last year when I copied some 50 or so old cd-r's from the 90s over to my hard drive, I lost something like 1 file per 5 or 6 CDs. I've always thought the bit-rot problem was a little overstated.

    edit - of course this CD-R is also from the days when the blanks cost $15-$20. If I were doing this properly I'd probably want to collect the data for no-name bulk cheapo CDRs separately.

    hehe yeah like remove the "don't use hairdryer in shower" labels.

    Look I completely understand where you're coming from. Laws in all countries could do with a healthy dose of common sense. Interpreting the mayors e-mail as hate speech could go either way (depending on the caliber of the lawer no doubt). Chances are the blogger does say some pretty batty things which we haven't read which the mayor is reacting to. Unfortunately for a position of power that the mayor holds, common sense demands a certain level of intellect and understanding rather than base level derogatory insults. If we choose to live in a society where we vote ordinary people into positions of power (inferring that they are "better" than normal people) then they "should" (common sense) act in a way reminisce of the ideals of understanding, morality, intellect and rationality.

    You're probably right. If the Mayors POV is unreasonable then this e-mail should unseat him due to public opinion.

    I posted this only because that show "Freedom Watch" that Judge Andrew Napolitano hosts, gives a true libertarian point of view. He is against all the wars including the drug war. That is why Fox only gives him an online 30 minute show. They are testing the waters with some actual freedom programming trying to lure us into thinking Beck is ok.

    The hope for a segment like that is not to please us, but maybe that old Republican who thinks Fox gives to him straight, sees that and changes his mind about marijuana and thinks twice if any ballot initiate comes up or considers a candidate who talks about saving money by ending the needless war on pot.

    Wally, think about this tonight: anxiety results from thoughts of danger, and it could be danger of losing something intangible, like reputation, ego, self-confidence. If you perceive that you are in danger, you will be anxious to some degree.

    Depression results from thoughts of loss. You think you lost something.

    Write down your thoughts, and try to figure out what you think you're in danger of losing and what you think you have lost. It's a start to learning what your mind is telling itself, what your fundamental thoughts are, and whether those thoughts are true, untrue, or speculative.

    Not close. The federal government manages and funds some things and the state government manages others. It's like a lower socio economic family. If they can't afford a car and other things which most would call a necessity, it doesn't mean they shouldn't try to take advantage of other government initiatives which would offer money towards a first home, or give rebates for childcare. The argument that just because you can't afford one thing, you shouldn't be able to allow help for anything else doesn't make sense.

    Atlantans (and Georgians) were ready to toss the IOC and the Olympics out on their ears by early 96, and were glad to see them go after the games.

    Yes, many of the buildings are still in use, but having renters tossed out during the games so they could rent out the units during the games (didn't happen), business was pretty much shut down, the streets turned into a 3rd world flea market (thanks Bill Campbell) where street vendors came out of the woodwork to try to sell trinkets on closed streets. There there was Eric Robert Rudolph coming out from under his rock. They screwed over Olympic Pizza.

    But it did spawn the Redneck Games. And they actually turn a profit.

    **Dark Matters**, or, **How Gravity Saved My Ass**

    The following fragment came into my possession a short while ago and, since it is somewhat relevant to the conversation, I present it here for consideration.

    ----

    ...the little goofy-looking gray guys (LGLGGs, or Luglugs) were approaching my rear portal with what appeared to be a probe. Out of desperation to appear nonchalant I casually asked, "Is that a gravity probe?"

    Dead silence, but the Luglugs were twitching and the approach to my posterior was momentarily delayed. Occasionally one would tweet out a tune followed by more twitching. The thought came like a flash of mental lightning: The Luglugs were laughing!

    My next thought was that they were laughing at my soon-to-be-even-more-desperate situation but then, on a hunch, I blurted out, "A gravity detector?"

    Increased twitching and tweeting from the Luglugs. Had I found a possible escape from a most certain -- and certainly uncomfortable -- probing? Some of the Luglugs were obviously having problems balancing, leaning into tables whilst twitching uncontrollably. I took the shot.

    "An anti-gravity generator!" Within seconds all the Luglugs were splayed out on the floor, a twitching, tweeting mass of Luglug hysteria! Occasionally one would blurt out a loud series of tweets only to render the group as a whole wholly helpless with Luglug laughter. This went on for a considerable amount of time, yet I kept silent lest I interrupt their mirth and remind them of their mission.

    Upon returning me home (un-probed) not much later, I offered up the remark, "I love gravity!" only to have the door slammed in my face by the obviously exhausted Luglugs. The joke was fully expended and, in return for an outrageously good laugh, I was off the hook.

    The moral of my story: When one is about to get one's ass reamed by a higher intelligence, gravity as a concept may have some value; otherwise, not so much.

    ----

    What the author is babbling on about isn't exactly clear; that he has issues with the concept of gravity as we know it is as clear as can be.

    I use them a lot, but I'm more a programmer than a web designer. So for me they're a quick, simple, well documented way to get something that looks professional and is guaranteed to be cross-platform. They provide quite a bit of variety "out of the box" and that's enough for the kind of work I do - if you want to carefully tweak things by hand you might find them slower going (but YUI's documentation is pretty comprehensive).

    edit: also, using YUI means that you only need to learn one toolkit for CSS and JS, which is another win in my kind of work.

    > Look beyond the obvious dichotomy of the quote for a minute.

    Happy to, but just by saying that you're making my point for me. You expect people to look beyond the denotation of the quote you post, you might want to mention it.

    >> Programming languages have become too large and complex to encompass in a human mind.

    > Is it unreasonable to substitute "computer programs" with "programming languages"?

    It's absolutely unreasonable. Or are you alleging that no program written with a simple programming language can be large and complex?

    > I don't think anyone disagrees that the burgeoning complexity of computer programs or programming languages is an issue that needs addressing.

    Again, they are not the same. And clearly the people working on, say, Perl (to pick an easy mark) do not think complexity of programming languages is an issue that needs addressing, unless by "addressing" you mean "piling more shit on top of." Hell, look at R6RS, even.

    > Oh no the Elitists Academics are defecating upon our heads from their unrealistic Ivory Towers!

    I never said anything of the sort. It has nothing to do with elitism or realism. (I'm with David Rees: If "elitist" means "not the dumbest motherfucker in the room, I'll be an elitist.) It has to do with the quote being smarmy as fuck (since we're bringing in the potty mouth, now).

    As for the authors' inclusion of some weasel wording in their quote, that hardly improves it. You make an interesting point about removing the word mediocre, though. It actually is quite interesting to reread the quote if you remove the loaded words from both sides. Then it becomes clear that you need both sides: you have to work both to manage complexity (with a disciplined approach) and reduce it (by finding more powerful tools).

    That said, your assertion that the authors never claimed the two views are exclusive is bullshit: they went out of their way to charge the two poles so that their readers would be attracted to the latter. Which is what I objected to.

    I've only worked with a few C++ ubermensch in my time. And yes, sometimes they have to have hard talks with the fresh-outta-school recruits. But, most of my coworkers have been average joes and they do fine after a few bumps. People who are new to embedded systems have a hurdle to cross, but that hurdle is language independant.

    People who don't use C++ seem to be really hung up on the possibility of complexity. The vast majority of code doesn't need anything more complex than a virtual function. If some new kid goes nuts and start writing Perl in C++, you smack him and move on.

    I'm tempted to start referring Java to people who are this worried about their coworkers. But, I'm not up to being that mean... yet...

    When I was a student in Shanghai, there was the begging woman with a baby (I say* woman with a baby* as opposed to *mother* because it's possible she just borrowed the baby to get more sympathy, it happens). She would follow you and continually ask for money, sometimes pulling on your sleeve. It was a convenient place to meet people so I was there often.

    I got really sick of her pestering me when I wouldn't give her change so I lost it one time. I didn't actually say anything. I just turned around when she started after me, walked up to her, spun and bent toward her, and let out a loud, stinky, rippling fart, and then walked away. I felt kind of ashamed earlier. All I saw was the speechless expression on her face as she stood frozen while I walked away.

    A glass rod when subjected to a three point bend (suspended at the ends, weight in the middle, or vice versa) will bend slightly but eventually crack into several pieces as more load is applied. If you then take another glass rod and drop it in a chemical bath which eats the surface a bit, then subject it to the same loading it will carry many times more load and bend in ways you would not think is possible for a piece of glass. When it finally fails (at its theoretical ultimate strength - very high) it does not crack into a few pieces it shatters in to billions of tiny shards like dust.

    The explanation is the surface is smoothed by the chemical bath, all microscopic imperfections are removed and thus no crack initiators exist on the surface anymore. Since cracks cannot initiate you can literally take it to somewhere close to its atomic bonding strength before the whole structure explodes. This experiment is an amazing confirmation of the fairly modern science of fracture mechanics.

    Think of correlation as (dealing with) the sum of squares of the points from the origin. You use squares so you can use your homeboy's (Pythagoras's) theorem. It all boils down to distance. That's your other homeboy, Euclid.

    In short, you'll need the Sum of Cross Products, and the Sum of Squares for each variable.

    Look at things visually, first:

    * Take a random cloud of data, for example. Center it (i.e., move the "origin" from where ever it really is to the arithmetic mean of each variable).

    * Actually draw the "squares" on the cloud of points from the new origin to every point.

    * Then, label each point with its Euclidean distance *from* the origin (this is where your homeboy Euclid benefits from your homeboy Pythagoras).

    Computationally:

    * Sum of Cross Products: Σ (X-Xμ)(Y-Yμ)

    * Sum of Squares: Σ (X-Xμ)^2 & Σ (Y-Yμ)^2

    * Sum of Cross Products/sqrt(SumSquaresX*SumSquaresY)

    Just use HTML. Then you can play it on a blackberry and it's easy enough to get started that you might have a chance of finishing it. Maybe write the game data to e.g. an XML file and then generate all the HTML pages from that to avoid a mess of HTML and formatting.

    e.g.

    <page number="1" image="start.jpg" music="start.wav">

    <description>

    You want to make a choose your own adventure game. Do you:

    </description>

    <option goto="2"> use Flash? </option>

    <option goto="3"> use HTML? </option>

    <page>

    etc.

    You could use the URL to store any game state e.g. if you have a key.

    When I win, a percentage of my profit goes to my living expenses. That percentage varies depending on the amount I won. The rest goes back to my poker bankroll.

    For example, lets say I buy into a 30-60 game for the standard $1200. I dont play for long and I win 6 or 700 bucks in a few hours.

    I walk out with 1800, 300 or 400 goes to living, and I put 1500 back into my poker bankroll. Sometimes its more, sometimes its less depending on my bills every month. Do that every day or two, and it adds up to a decent amount of money. I try not to leave until I have my buyin plus another 75%.

    I try to keep my poker bankroll balance about the same every month no matter how I do. If I have a bad month, I dont go out spending money partying or other dumb stuff. If I have a good month, its nice dinners every other night.

    Technically I didn't need a computer to do any of that. I could have called him. Or written a letter. Or discussed it with him in person once we flew out.

    That's not the point. It isn't all about Google. In fact, on the extension page, at least half of them are 3rd party extensions like video chat and the itinerary planner I mentioned (called Trippy by LonelyPlanet)

    Look, Google is king (for now) of search and maps...what's slick is that I'm using Wave, with Trippy on the page, and Trippy has Google maps and search embedded *in it* to compliment its other functionality.

    Think legos. Or facebook API/apps, but without facebook having all your data. For now, google is the only wave server (it's not even out of beta yet), but in the future anyone can run one, just like you can pick between yahoo, google, aol, MS for your e-mail, or even run your own SMPT server/domain.

    Once the provincial government sets up a semi-independent "gaming" agency whose main purpose is to maximize profits payable to government, the predictable happens. A casino becomes virtually indistinguishable from any for-profit casino with all the social ills that go with it.

    Ontario set up two of its big three casinos right on the U.S. border (Niagara Falls, Windsor), hoping to attract as many Americans as possible. Undoubtedly, it was a conscious attempt to share as much of the social misery southward as possible.

    They know I have a TV in my living room, I told them. So what if they do get a warrant? It isn't against the law to have a TV. They'd have to catch you actively receiving a broadcast.

    I explained how I used my TV as a monitor which was connected to my PC (my PC is clearly displayed), and that I found it offensive that they send me letters implying I owe them money when in fact I do not. The BBC licence fee enforcers are a modern day gestapo, they're disgusting. I've never once received any letter from a legitimate organisation stating I owe them money for a service I'm not using.

    Most C++ bashing is just done by people who are crap at using it. I've been programming in it professionally for nearly 15 years in the games industry. There are a few things that irk me (primarily functions not being first class objects), and I have used several other languages to see some of the benefits of some aspects of some of them (perl, python, lua, scheme, C# mainly), but there are no magic bullets.

    If we could make a game in half time, with half the effort, or with half the bug count by switching from C++ to something else we would have done it by now. We are talk about about 20-50 million dollar projects, that need to be delivered very rapidly with very low defect rates (especially for console titles). We are doing everything we can to make them faster, more reliably and with cheaper labor (not just C++ gurus with 20 years experience). Don't think we don't know about the other languages out there.

    I think the US is still about 15 years away from a public health option sadly. Right now, there are too many vocal people who were born, or were young during the duck and cover era of the Cold War. Anything that can't be painted as pure capitalism is an analogue to communism and the terrifying Soviets, the enemy, were communist. At the same time there are very few people left from before The New Deal who saw what a positive step that was.

    As those who were born after the USSR entered its final stages get older and move into possitions of authority and become the dominant voices, the pendulum will swing back and the US as a whole will become less fearful of the idea of the state paying for essential services. I also believe that this will mean the death knell for US style raging capitalism, which has got to where it is today because the US "won" the Cold War -- proving that raging capitalism *must* be right.

    Either that or the US is headed for a Soviet style collapse.

    Hypothetically you're having sex with a man, you were dressed 5 mins ago, there's been some foreplay, maybe a minute or three of licking/fingering, the goal is for you, the woman, to come to orgasm in a short, but reasonable amount of time. How long would it take, and would it just be penis on vagina, or would you want more foreplay up front even for a quickie?

    I haven't had much sex and I'd really appreciate an honest baseline for a very simple, short experiance that's fulfilling for both partners.

    "A large diary animal approached Zaphod Beeblebrox's table, a large fat meaty quadruped of the bovine type with large watery eyes, small horns and what might almost have bene an ingratiating smile on its lips.

    "Good evening," it lowed and sat back heavily on its haunches, "I am the main Dish of the Day. May I interest you in parts of my body?" It harrumphed and gurlged a bit, wriggled its hind quarters into a more comfortable position and gazed peacefully at them. Its gaze was met by looks of startled bewilderment from Arthur and Trillian, a resigned shrug from Ford Prefect and naked hunger from Zaphod Beeblebrox. "Something off the shoulder perhaps?" suggested the animal. "Braised in a white wine sauce?" ..... "You mean this animal actually wants us to eat it?" whispered Trillian to Ford.....

    >I think 48 days is too short, but I don't think 20+ years in jail is going to do anyone much good; especially since he has gone 30 years since without being known to have commited any similar crimes.

    He added onto it by running. And the sentence is going to go off of today's level of standards. The laws in the 70s most likely allowed for very long sentences, but they just weren't enforced as strict.

    Again, that is a problem he created for himself by running. Now he is going to get sentenced 20 years for his raping of a child.

    >I'm not a lawyer, but I don't think he would get today's sentence. That sounds like it would go against ex post facto rulings, even if he was retried.

    Like I said, it depends on the state. Some states have written the law to allow the registration on cases before the law was created. Courts have upheld it. I think it's because they argue that registering is not a punishment, but something needed to make those around the person aware.

    In my view, when I choose a language for a system, I'm making an economic decision. If I'm choosing something that may be more efficient in terms of developer time, I'm often choosing to spend my customer's money by chewing up greater computing resources at runtime.

    I'm okay making that call on a project by project basis. Sometimes I choose C/C++/Objective-C. Sometimes I choose Python/Lisp/Scheme.

    As far as making my blood boil, no. People who claim that X sucks when X merely doesn't meet their needs are bozos. Being able to recognize bozos early, set the appropriate bit, and move on is a life skill.
