Me and my roommate Jon are huge fans of the webcomic XKCD, so a few nights ago we randomly created a really crappy pseudo-XKCD style comic of our own. See for yourself.

Heh.. this is amusing. Faceball…

“At its simplest level Faceball involves two people hitting beachballs at each other’s faces. At a deeper level it’s a vehicle for the release of personal animosity, and the Shaming of the Weak.”

I think thats all the introduction it needs.

A lesson well learned: Don’t seek() on STDIN

Wednesday, July 18th, 2007

The neat thing about fread() and friends in most languages is that you can open up STDIN and pretend its a file. However, the following code doesn’t work.. hehe.

	$file = $argv[1];

	if ($file != '-' && !file_exists($file))
		die("File $file does not exist, foo!\n");
	if ($file == '-')
		$file = 'php://stdin';

	$f = fopen($file,'r');

	// crazy code in here

	// ok, go backwards
	fseek($f, $some_position);

	// Heh, it doesn't always work!?


Yeah, I know it seems to be quite obvious from this small snippet, but for the record the lines were specified by quite a few lines of code and I didn’t quite realize that I was doing that… lol.

Blaming Mr. Rogers

Sunday, July 8th, 2007

Heh… a recent study shows this generation is more narcissistic and selfish than previous generations. Probably true, no doubt. A professor at Louisiana State University blames childhood influences such as Mr. Rogers to telling us that we don’t need to work for what we get. Hmm… evil Mr. Rogers :p

Of course, the best statement in the second article has to be this: “By 2006, they said, two-thirds of the students had above-average scores, 30 percent more than in 1982.” Wait, so isn’t average the mean, which means you are always going to have at most half above it? Heh.. of course, they’re probably talking about the cumulative average over decades of research, but still…

Ultimate Rejection Letter

My friend Jon sent this to me, and it definitely is the best rejection letter EVER.

How to (not) announce your pregnancy

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

I was browsing WikiHow a few minutes ago trying to find out how to disable the Windows XP login screensaver, when I came across this ‘featured’ article: How to Announce Your Pregnancy

Some of the advice in the article made sense, but a lot of them are just ridiculous. Such as these ones:

“Take a shower together. Write on your belly in washable marker, “Baby On Board” and allow your partner to get in the shower first.”

Yeah.. I think the poor guy would fall and break his head.

“Wait for a holiday and literally “give” your partner the news. Buy a t-shirt with DADDY written on it, a baby-related keychain, a baby book, as well as a few baby items, and put them in a gift bag. Cover with tissue paper and then have him open it.”

Umm… yeah. No comment on that one.

Gotta love google…

Sunday, February 25th, 2007

Ok, I love google and its adsense. Especially the ebay ads on them. Heres one reason why…


Hehe. You used to be able to search for just about anything (ie, women, drugs, [other silly phrase to insert into ad]), and it would show it.
