This is aimed at those in our society who feel that they have the right to do the following while they enjoy the PRIVELIDGE of driving on our streets and highways:

  1. Talk on their cell phones while they drive,
  2. Tailgate you so closely that you can read their lips while they talk on their cell phone,
  3. NEVER use their turn signals - especially if they are driving a pickup truck and/or they are talking on a cell phone,
  4. Use the following equation: Posted Speed Limit + 10 = The speed to drive,
  5. Pull out in front of you (even though there is no traffic behind you for miles) and drive 10 MPH below the speed limit without a care in the world.
  6. Last but not least, make sure your new car has as many door dings/dents put in it as possible in the first year you own the new car you worked your @$$ off the get. To all of those out there who have seen fit to beat the living daylights of my new minivan, I hope your house is infested with an especially aggressive breed of termites - especially the guy in Omaha who put two LARGE dents in my van.

To all of you out there who don't understand that traffic laws were put in place for a reason, please take a few minutes and read the freakin' drivers manual in your state - ALL of us need a refresher now and then.

There, that's out of my system. Now, on to the real reason for this page - computer stuff.

CPU magazine has quickly won a place in my heart. If you have seen a copy of it you might understand what I'm talking about. If not, go to your favorite newstand and pickup a copy or better yet, head over to their website http://www.computerpoweruser.com/ and take a peek.

Oh, I just want to say this to Michael Dell: “When you start making machines that use AMD processors, I'll buy one but not until then.“

Well, I'm off to write some multi-threaded C# code and see how well it works with my new dual-core AMD 64 X2 processor...l8tr ;-)
