At good ole Brewski's, I took ID #4 tonight. Sadly this one is not going into my collection. Note to silly kids: do not go into a place with someone else's ID who has worked there before. I left it taped to the wall so that the jackass who it belongs to can come get it. For a recount, #3 was an expired (in 2002) Georgia restricted DUI ID that very clearly states "Only Valid in Georgia." #2 is an expired (02/04) Mississippi license. Another note to the kids: if you are going to use your older buddies expired ID, memorize the freaking birthday. At least know the birthday, knowing the social helps too, but every four year old knows their birthday so hopefully twenty-one year olds will too. #1 is what got me started in this adventure. Kids came in a little before closing Brewski's a few months back and wanted a keg. That's right, a freaking keg. Standard procedure is to take information directly from their license. So the kid freaked out a little when he had to take it out of the wallet for me. It *was* a pretty ID, he had access to a real nice printer and photo paper, but there was no attempt at a hologram at all. I pulled the photo paper off and gave him back the real license that had been the backing. How nice of me, now all he had to do was run home and print another out. I wonder if it violates any kind of security laws if I were to scan these ID's and share with the rest of the internet. I *guess* it would be ethical to blur out the socials or something but that kills part of the fun.

The recipe for the winning burger of the Build a Better Burger contest. My favorite is this one. Heart attack between two buns.

People in Oklahoma are weenies. What this article leaves out about the "grammatical mistakes" is that instead of referring to the common pastime as "cow manure tossing" but "cowshit throw'n." Plus, to be one of the cool kids in Oklahoma, one has to help out reenacting one of those decisive Oklahoma battles that turned the war of Northern Aggression in favor of those damned Yankees. Yes, out of the seven mighty battles fought in Oklahoma, almost all of them involved the Confederates fighting at least some Native Americans. The last battle actually had Native AND African Americans fighting against Confederates. So just imagine the policial correctness of a group of Oklahoma Confederates firing cannons at Indians and black people while they are playing a game tossing cowshit! The ramifications are mind boggling!

When having sound quality issues, first check to see that your audio cables are fully inserted.

My pretty little 250 GB love child of a hard drive likes to crap out after being up for about 24 hours. I am blaming it on the cheap cheap controller card of course. Bill is in *testing* mode with my main 120 and the 250 running off of the primary interface. Hopefully this will teach me a lesson of buying crappy interface cards to go with expensive hard drives. I would like to learn that lesson instead of "Maxtor's suck" and have to send it back.

When you go somewhere and end up talking to a girl who graduated from ACCS in 1988, should you feel old?

There were more profound thoughts but they have lost their anchors.

The new php stuff is coming, I promise it has more functionality, like comments from the enlightenened few whom I will deem worthy, until then:

Here are some foolproof ways to tell if your wife is making dirty movies behind your back:

-- Every couple of weeks she has to fly to California to care for a "sick aunt."

-- When in bed, she just lies there until you yell "Action!"

-- Just as you're about to make love, she asks, "What's my motivation?"

-- She keeps getting mail addressed to "Patty O'Plenty."

-- Whenever you go out, drooling men ask her for her autograph.

-- She looks suspiciously like the Hustler pin-up in your neighbor's garage.

-- She knows sexual positions that would put a circus contortionist in the hospital.

-- She wears a micro miniskirt and six-inch spike heels to go grocery shopping.

-- On your joint tax return she lists her occupation as "passion princess."

Apparently the MSU Drumline has a discussion forum. They must have linked something to me but I cannot find it.

These guys are talking about these girls.

This is awful, but it is the neatest election I have ever seen.

I am playing around with a comment feature as I have time to write the code, so that is why those funky things about comments and logging in can be seen. So pay no attention to the comments behind the curtain.

When upgrading to apache-2.0.51 from 2.0.40 in Gentoo, the ServerRoot gets clobbered and you get this in starting apache:

/etc/init.d/apache2 start
* Starting apache2...
Syntax error on line 22 of /etc/apache2/conf/apache2.conf: Cannot load /etc/apache2/modules/ into server: /etc/apache2/modules/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or director [ !! ]

The fix is simple, just change ServerRoot (line 7 of /etc/apache2/conf/apache2.conf) to be /usr/lib/apache2 instead of /etc/apache2

Yay it works!
