Internet Explorer 9

Posted by Swert , Mar 19 2011 · 139 views

Wait, you mean you haven't downloaded it yet? Why?

It's leagues ahead of IE8. And having tried Firefox before, and refusing to allow anything Google on this computer (besides Google Talk and GMail <<), and I don't even have Quicktime on here, I'm not going to try Chrome and Safari. So yeah, don't waste a comment saying I should go to that.

But I will say this, give IE9 a try. You'll be pleasantly surprised, I promise you.

Now, if you HAVE gotten IE9, disregard this rant and continue enjoying it.

Oh right, I'm also part Irish <<



On The Turning Away

Posted by Swert , Mar 16 2011 · 95 views
On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won't understand
"Don't accept that what's happening
Is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away"

It's a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting it's shroud
Over all we have known
Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that we're all alone
In the dream of the proud
On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord
Using words you will find are strange
And mesmerised as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside
Just a world that we all must share
It's not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there'll be
No more turning away?

On The Turning Away - Pink Floyd

I listen to this song all the time. It was released in September of 1987. I'm always amazed at how relevant it still is to this day.

I'm also playing with the idea of making this into a songfic, but I don't know if I could do justice to how awesome this song is.


Toying With An Idea For Bs01

BS01 / HS01
Should I add a content block to my blog, similar in function to Black Six's Complaint Department? I mean, obviously it'd be something different in terms of what it'd be, but I'm just wondering if it'd be a good idea.


The New App Apple -should- Release For The New Ipad

You know it to be true! (For the record, I'd use a real gun, or maybe just an airsoft/BB gun. BBs are cheaper than bullets.)

This is how it would look on the shirt.


In Addition To My Blog Entry About Wiki War 2

Here is the official reason why:

My server space is at 86% full. I need to find a way to cut it down. Adding to the database would not help.

It's getting to the point where I may have to dump old image revisions again.

So yeah, please respect my wishes as to why I don't want Wiki War 2.

Officially, I don't want it on BS01. So cut it out, guys tongue.gif

And I will admit to you all now, I'm looking into getting it... elsewhere <<

Just give me time, I'll have details later. Til then, chill out on it.

Sbc: System Building Contest

Posted by Swert , Mar 08 2011 · 122 views
I am in the process of planning a System Building Contest here on my blog.

Feel free to suggest a theme, maybe we'll get enough interest to actually do something amazing.

All I know so far is all entries will be voted upon, then judged by top folk (also known as me, and maybe a few friends XD I'd love to ask my boss Dan Parker to judge, but he may be too busy, who knows.)

So let's get some ideas flowing.

In fearful day...
