I R Tranzformr!

I finally made one. I’ve spent enough time laughing at other lolcats already online it was bound to happen sooner or later.

That’s my wife’s favorite cat, Conan, hanging out in an Optimus Prime box.

Might be time to dump Facebook

January 23rd, 2008 1 comment

This post at the loose wire blog showed up in my RSS feeds today, and one quick read was enough to make me consider pulling the plug on my facebook account.

Two major points: Your data and your friends’ data can be used by the third parties that made the facebook apps you install. I’ve done some support for some of the people who develop these applications and that thought doesn’t exactly thrill me.

Here’s the second major item that really bothered me, regarding the handling of private data (and more importantly your friends’ data):

Our data is vulnerable to the weakest link in the chain, which will be a friend we’ve given full access to who installs every third party app there is.

We all know plenty of those…

I’ve never really put out a call for comments on anything before, but I know there’s a fair amount of you who read this site that also use facebook. Please read through it and let me know what you think.

Gut Busting Pizza

Warning: If you want to avoid the kind of bowel clearing magnitude one normally finds in South American prisons I highly suggest you avoid eating pizza from the Saginaw/Oakland Little Caesars in Lansing.

Jen, Seth and I are all experiencing… unpleasantness today.

We’ll just leave it at that.
