Celebrity CSI

Posted by Mark

Yesterday I watched a cool episode of CSI, it starred Wil Wheaton and Stephen Baldwin. I had actually been waiting to watch Wil Wheaton in CSI since I first read about it on his blog. For those of you who don’t know, Wil Wheaton played the part of Wesley Crusher, Dr. Beverly Crusher’s son on Star Trek The Next Generation. TNG is one of my favorite shows so I am a big fan of Wil Wheaton. Sadly though he didn’t have a very large role in the show which was disappointing since I had been expecting to see a lot more of him. Wil played the part of a crazy homeless guy who was a suspected of murdering a kid. Having Stephen Baldwin also in the same episode was awesome, he played the part of a cocaine dealer and we got to see him a lot more then Wil. I hope a lot more celebrities start popping up on CSI, makes the show even more cooler.

I was expecting Tivo-Guy to get a much higher score then mine but surprisingly we are pretty close. My brothers (Ripping Fabric) and Nats Powerbooks were the slowest but thats expected. Although again I was expecting my brothers Powerbook to be a lot faster then Nats.

Update: I added a Mac mini and G5 Powermac to the list above.

Update 2: I rearranged my hard drives and somehow I now score a 46 instead of a 44 bringing me 1 point difference between my Mac and Tivo-Guys Intelmac.

Spam Karma

Posted by Mark

The past week I have been having serious issues with Spam on this blog. For some reason my previous spam checker Hashcash was letting some spam through and I was getting at least 30 comments a day via email awaiting my approval that were all spam. So I decided to try a different Spam plugin called Spam Karma. Right away it detected the recent spams and adds them to the blacklist. So far I haven’t received any new Spams but the day is still young. Hopefully though I won’t be having any more spam issues.

Simpsons House Made a Reality

Posted by Mark

simpsons home

Some hardcore Simpsons fan in Australia actually went and built the Simpsons home from the cartoon. The interior is like a duplicate from the show with the same furniture and paintings on the wall. I wouldn’t live in the house but it does look pretty cool. Now if only someone would build Moe’s Bar.. here in Kuwait. More pics after the jump. [Link]

I Listen to Oldies

Posted by Mark

I am sitting at work listening to music and I realized something, I am old. I am listening to R&B songs from like the year 2000 and I realized thats like nearly 6 years ago. Then I started thinking about Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Blind Melon which are from the early 90’s and I realized, I listen to music thats like 15 years old. In the 80’s when my parents used to listen to music from the late 60s and 70s, we used to call those oldies. So now, is Pearl Jam an oldie?

Jolie the Great

Was just checking out some hi-res shots of Angelina Jolie on idontlikeyouinthatway.com when I noticed a tattoo on her right arm. Its arabic and I believe it says “al-3azeemah” meaning the great one. This just made me dislike her more then I used to. [Link]
