Backscatter Spam

05/06/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
I'll have to concur with Stephen on this one: backscatter spam (wherein the source is forged (legitimate domain name plus random collection of user names) is incredibly annoying. For a while I had my domain set to put all email that had no real mailbox… more »

Ugly, but functional

05/01/08 | by Adam | Categories: Games
The long lost sequel to Infocom's "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" is revealed and playable. Alas, there was a lot of politics behinds its development resulting in pretty much no game. Too bad really; would have been fun. There's also another good… more »

"iPod Tax" resurfaces in UK

04/27/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Music
There's not much I can add to the article writer's comment: But only if they pay for it a second time round. The MBG's proposal is essentially a way to help the music industry get paid twice for the same thing: first for the CD and once again, by way of… more »

Another take on the alarm clock radio

04/25/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Music
The Register Rebel DJ has a write up in the Intempo, an FM-based alarm clock with an interesting twist: it automatically records music and strips out the commercials and DJs allowing one to listen to the important bit. more »

][GS Laptop

04/23/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Silly
I don't normally bother linking to case mods, even when they're rather cool, mostly because, well, they're just case mods. This though, this is cool. I always wanted a ][gs but they weren't really available where I was living at the time. more »

Net Neutrality and Virgin Media

04/19/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
Another UK sourced story, this time from BoingBoing. Apparently Virgin Media, one of the major ISPs in the UK, is clearly stating that they wish to be bribed in order to give preferential treatment to websites. No, I misspoke; Virgin will actually… more »

While the Apple iPhone is getting close to being able to replace my beloved Palm Tungsten T3, there are two primary issues that still make it an inappropriate choice for me. more »

Stephen Vermeulen, author of ExpressPaint and VBBS/IceBBS for the Amiga with miscellaneous other low-key software development projects since, has finally got around to blogifying his homebrew website. Following a fragment-based posting design, he's… more »

Tech support follies

04/16/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
Recently Microsoft ran a pretty good promotion: buy their current version of Microsoft Office for OSX and get the new one free when it's released. So, I bit, and bought the old version and dutifully sent in the form with the original UPC barcode and… more »

It's so quiet

04/14/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
One of the nicer features about the newer electric hybrids is that they're quiet. So, in the name of safety, what do you think the next step should be? Yup. Make the cars generate digitized engine noises over external loudspeakers so pedestrians can… more »

Wired on industrial control systems security

04/13/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
Given the industry I work in and specific familiarity with the system in question, this article from Wired on system security and response is fascinating. The headline is a trifle "Chicken Little" but the content is good. (The somewhat generic text… more »

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
