Change of Plans

I feel quite worn-out. Today was longer then expected and much more draining as well. Looks like I won't be making it to the concert I was planning to see (Referenced in the post below). Suckalicious...

Items both sundry and various

One of these days I am going to actually think of a witty gripping lead in for one of these things. And you wonderful readers out there are going to be so shocked you will spit coffee all over your keyboard. And I will probably get sued for the cost of replacing all those keyboards. Today is not that day.

First things first: The Code Monkey!
(Note: The song is by Jonathan Coulton. Even some of his non-monkey based songs are awesome.)

Second things Second: At least in Michigan it is a Class C felony to piggyback a WiFi network without permission. Moreover, someone has actually been prosecuted! This seems to be due to an odd wrinkle in Michigan's criminal hacking statute that presumes that any connection made is unauthorized unless the Defendant can show otherwise, or unless the Network in question falls into a couple of the defined statutory exceptions. Food for thought the next time one of you surreptitiously connects to your neighbor's WiFi.

Alright, enough of things that amuse me... What have I been up to you ask? You mean besides trolling the web for amusing things to share? Well... mostly work and puppy sitting. My sister got a standard poodle puppy recently, but she had to take a vacation so Sam and I wound up puppy sitting for a good 10+ days. I am sure if I dug around in my mind I could come up with a few cute stories of things the puppy did or something... but that really isn't my style. I will leave things of that nature to Sam.

Thats all for now folks. I will be Portland for the weekend for some golfing mostly. I might head out to this show though. It is unlikely I would object to seeing any of you there. You could even let me know in advance :)
