Sony Rootkit

Any sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.

Who wrote this function...

Co-worker discovers some functionality in the program and is a little concerned about what it did.

"Who wrote 'SAP_03_desist'?" He asks.

General round of shaking heads to deny knowledge, which is a pretty usual starting point.

"Oh, I did", he says

General hilarity ensues.

A little bit of snow and the country comes to a grinding halt.

I got caught in a hailstorm just outside of Copenhagen this morning. Then managed to get a flat tyre because I couldn't see the glass on the cycle path. The glass was obscured by the hail. It was a really bad flat and had ripped the tyre as well, so even though I have a spare inner tube it was unrepairable. I was 10 km out from home so started to walk to the nearest shops in the hope of finding a phone number for a taxi as I could not remember any. As luck or providence would have it a taxi pulled up just in front of me, asking if I was OK, and took me home. What a nice man, I've got his number now in my wallet.

Took several cups of coffee, hot chocolate and a very hot shower to warm me back up again. A little bit of a rest and off I set for work again, this time in a car.

There I am thinking, ah well, I shall be late to work, when I get to my office, I'm first in!

As the others dribble in they're all blaming the weather for making them late. Yeah, what a lame excuse I think...

Who to vote for?

Today (Tuesday 15th Nov. 2005) is an election day in Denmark. One of my theological friends, Hanne Svensmark, is up for election, but not in my district, so I can't vote for her here, boo hoo.

Politics of Denmark takes place in a framework of a parliamentary representative democratic constitutional monarchy, whereby the prime minister is the head of government, and of a pluriform multi-party system. Executive power is exercised by the government, with the prime minister acting as the first among equals (primus inter pares). Legislative power is vested in both the government and the Danish parliament, known as the Folketing. In the last decennia the party system is dominated by the market liberal Venstre party and the social democratic Social Democrats. The Danish Judiciary is supposedly functionally and administratively independent of the executive and the legislature, but they get their jobs and promotions via the government so it is a theoretical point only.

Anywas I digress, and the issues are all too long winded. I would like water to flow in the beck that runs down the side of my garden all year round, but that ain't about to happen, so I'll vote for the lass with the biggest tits.
