As simple as that

After about 5+ years of using the command line every freakin day, like 80 hours a week I still find myself typing ks instead ls.

Today I decided to just deal with it once and for all.
ln -s /bin/ls ~/bin/ks

I wish I would have just admitted failure and done that before.

Estrip Holiday Dinner Party

The dinner party (e:matthew,47064) was a great success, especially considering our last minute planning. I ate enough pizza and drank enough wine for a week. I wish I had taken pictures but I couldn't find my phone. How lame is that and where (e:metalpeter) when you need him. I think it might be the first large event ever where no one took a picture. I will take a million at thew New Years Eve party to make up for it.

(e:matthew,47102)'s pretty christmas tree, I am sure he will post pics of it decorated
Seeing (e:carolinian)'s cute baby - too bad fern wasn't there to play
seeing (e:james)' muscular physique, god I am jealous
Watching (e:enknot) play video games
talking shop with (e:jason)
watching (e:james) and james my co-worker interact
listening to co-worker james talk about his sociology research
gossiping with robert and the other james
meeting (e:theli)
drinking a bunch bowl full of egg nog and whisky

Santa on a white horse on Allen

(e:mrdeadlier) and I saw Santa riding a white horse down Allen on our
way to panaros. I just wish they had dressed the horse up as a unicorn.

Two steaks per day

(e:theecarey) left some 70s playgirl magazines at the 24 when she moved out in 2007. They barely have any nudity and talk a lot about fashion.

The best part is that the models have bodies that look realistic and attainable. Also, none of them are shaved to look younger.

Anyhow, none of that is the point of this blog. The point is that in the November 1975 issue of playgirl, the description of the cover model, Jim Glasgow, it says:

He knows a lot about self-discipline. For the past five years he
has eaten two steaks a day...

I know they meant it like he was dedicated to keeping up his protein
intake but two steaks a day sound more like someone with no self discipline. I wonder if he even survived the 70s.


I do, however, love his mustache, I want mine back now.

To see the not work friendly pics of him posing of him check out:

Also totally work unfriednly, compare this to man of the year 1995. Look how body image has changed

Getting beaten by a Gang in Buffalo

More reasons that I am thinking I need to buy a gun or tazer. Does anyone else think these sound very related and scary? If I see any gang of 10 men I am running. The first victim was only 15. It seems so even freakier that the guy form the second story wouldn't even file a complaint.

Teen beaten, robbed while waiting at downtown bus stop
A 15-year-old boy told Buffalo police he was approached by a group of 10 males and attacked while standing at a downtown bus stop Monday evening.

The incident happened at about 6:30 p.m. at Washington and South Division streets, according to a Buffalo police report.

The victim told police one of the males in the group asked him if he had any money, then punched and kicked him in the head and face causing swelling and bleeding from his lip and nose.

The attackers took his wallet, which contained $3 in cash and various papers, according to the report.

The boy was transported to Women and Children's Hospital by Rural/Metro Medical Services.

South Buffalo man jumped, beaten by gang
A South Buffalo man suffered a possible broken elbow and was knocked unconscious when he was jumped by seven to 10 people Sunday night.

The victim, who also suffered cuts to his head and hand, was jumped just after 9:30 p.m. at Exchange and Selkirk streets, according to a Buffalo police report.

He refused medical treatment at the scene, and told police he could not identify any of the attackers and would not file a complaint.

Rotating windows

The KDE desktop for fedora 10 is pretty sweet. You can arbitrarily
rotate windows and all desktop widgets. I think it's the first time
I've seen that.

Roswell park tire dump

Remember when I wrote (e:paul,45191) about the nasty shreaded tire mulch at 901 Washington a while back. One of my complaints was that the rubber shreds would wash into the surrounding area and sewer. Well, that is exactly what is happening. They really should have built a better containment wall for that, or better yet not have it.
