Dear Media Temple, Again

I very much appreciate your peace offering of two shirts, a coffee mug, and three lanyards, but what I really want is an apology and a definition of a GPU in finite terms.

Fight Spam With Arthur

With apologies to the Tick. For a long time I spent hours a day deleting spam comments from my blog. I used to update my naughty word blacklists on a regular basis.

Other, better things


One of my monitors died last week, so I bought a nice new one. It was a bribe to get me to work on my CSci5161 homework. It seems to have worked! Hooray!

In Former Soviet Russia, Tetris Plays YOU

I can’t watch an hour long video at work. I just can’t do it. Instead, I will post it so that I can watch it when I get home.

It’s the BBC. It’s Tetris. I’m considering leaving right now so that I can watch it when I get home
