Stay out of family feuds

It could have been a beautiful love story. A handsome man, a pretty wife and a tragic end. But at some point it turned from Romeo and Juliet to the Montagues and Capulets. In the fight between Michael Schiavo, a man who loved his wife, and the Schindlers, two parents who loved their daughter, it would seem those two loves cannot co-exist. So it quickly devolved into the oldest, most senseless kind of dispute -- the family feud.

In a recent poll of ten Americans, ten out of ten Americans said when faced with a family feud, they would 'Stay the heck out of it'. Which makes perfect common sense. You really shouldn't stick your nose in another family's business.

Which is exactly why the court should also not get involved in the Michael Jackson case. Didn't you see the videos? The boy clearly called Michael 'Uncle Mike'. So shouldn't we all just give Uncle Mike and the rest of his family the privacy to resolve this matter on their own?

Sure, Uncle Mike gave the kid a little wine. I mean who didn't experiment with a little imbibing when they were kids. It didn't mean that Uncle Mike wanted to molest the kid. It might have meant he wanted to beat him at marbles.

'It's your turn, little Gavin.'
'Hey look, I hit yours!'
'No you didn't little Gavin. You missed.'
'Oh pooh.'
'Now take off your shirt and let Uncle Mike feel those nipples.'

(Don't read anything into this post except that the author is feeling nuts today. And it's a slow news day.)

Google Data Centers Analysis Tool

This web page has links that allow you to search 17 Google data centers separately. As you scan the search results from each data centre, you can find completely differing results. Google is therefore using a different algorithym at each data centre. This begs the question: which algo determines the results you see when you conduct a search on the regular Google search page?

Transparent Screens

I really like this cool desktop image idea. Might be worth a good prank. Basically, you remove your computer from your desk and take a photograph of your desk from where your computer was and use the photo as the desktop image.

NeoOffice - OpenOffice for MacOSX

NeoOffice is a Cocoa version of Open Office. It looks great and works great. I’m testing this right now. I am using Apple Works for OS10.3 which works as a really nice alternative to MS Office since it can open and edit all MS Office documents. Although it is native for OSX, Apple Works is not as intuitive for many functions and it’s not meant to be a copy of MS Office whereas Open Office (and NeoOffice) is.

I've just been alerted by Christopher at that feedbeep has just come out of beta. Feedbeep is an international RSS-to-SMS alert service. You get an SMS alert when a word or phrase appears in the feeds you are watching. You can test this out for 14 messages for free right now. I happily used this service a few months ago when Malaysia was one of the first international countries to be selected for their testing.
