Yes, I should. But no, I won't
Posted by Sam at 9:28 AM

This Joy of Tech comic pretty much sums up what I was talking about a few days ago. Give it a read. Bookmark 'em too. That's an order, soldier!

Anyway, so much new and exciting and interesting stuff is happening in my life right now. I'm finding it difficult to decide what to post about. So for now, you get the above link. Maybe after the coffee starts working I'll be able to write something a tad more substantial. "But Sam," you protest, "aren't you at work? Shouldn't you be doing what you're being paid to do (whatever that is)?" The short answer is, "Yes, I should. But no, I won't." Now that I've got something good to look forward to, it's becoming increasingly tough to concentrate on the here and now.

And now, a somewhat related piece of dialog from one of my favorite movies; Spaceballs:

Dark Helmet: What the hell am I looking at? When does this happen in the movie?
Colonel Sandurz: You're looking at now, sir. Everything that happens now is happening now.
Dark Helmet: What happened to then?
Colonel Sandurz: We passed then.
Dark Helmet: When?
Colonel Sandurz: Just now. We're at now now.
Dark Helmet: Go back to then.
Colonel Sandurz: When?
Dark Helmet: Now!
Colonel Sandurz: Now?
Dark Helmet: Now!
Colonel Sandurz: I can't.
Dark Helmet: Why?
Colonel Sandurz: We missed it.
Dark Helmet: When?
Colonel Sandurz: Just now.
Dark Helmet: When will then be now?
Colonel Sandurz: Soon.

Well, apparently you'll have to actually go there to see it (of find alternate viewing). the /. article Apple Nixes Live Satellite Feed & Webcast says a lot.

Read the comments, though, I believe the aformentioned "alternate viewing source" is spoken of in the comments.

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
