As they come up, I’ll post explanations about what some of the errors thrown on Facebook mean. This one is one of the more serious issues: Internal Server Error – Read The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

I popped in on the site to see if they had opened the code.The project link at now takes you to I hope it’s a joke and not a vaporware indicator. I wonder what the hell they were on at Burning Man? Looks like Maxwell is taking credit for it, github is up.

The Google Gambit

The Google and Verizon deal. Man, it’s got to suck to be Verizon at this point. I bet they thought they had a powerful ally in Google and were slobbering at the chance to cash in. It’s pretty plain to see that Google can’t lose in this scenario. Net neutrality = big win. Tiered internet [...]

What has happened to Joe Lieberman?

Seriously folks, he has turned into a serious hand-wringer. “Emergency Powers” to take control of civilian networks? What in the world is he thinking? If we get attacked, I say we just issue /b/ carte blanche to respond. I have more faith in those guys than I do in turning networks over to the government. [...]

I just got through catching up on the news and read an article over at 9news on bicycle traffic at the Colorado National Monument. Bike traffic appears to be up 31% since 2008. Here’s a quote from the article that has me a little perplexed: Superintendent Joan Anzelmo tells The Daily Sentinel newspaper in Grand [...]

Google pulled the plug on censoring in China. While I’m not quite convinced Google is always acting in my best interest, this time they’ve put their money where their mouth is and appear to be taking a stand. Microsoft, of course, is hemming and hawing and probably looking for a way to cash in. As [...]

No more Lala results floating at the top of my Google searches? Apple and Google seem to be locked in mortal combat. Who is going to lose this one? Probably not Microsoft or Amazon. Seems Lala has made a reappearance.

Michael Jackson is gone. One thing I think everyone can agree on is that he was a truly tragic figure. Where I differ from most is that I wasn’t a fan. Get past Motown and I didn’t like his music. He was talented, but I thought it was over produced, over-hyped, and over the years, [...]

Payola in reverse? One bit I read compares the radio market in the U.S. to North Korea. Man, they are laying it on thick trying to get HR 848 passed. Making radio stations pay to play music. Pretty soon singing in the car will require a license, now that would be like living in North [...]

I caught up on cycling news this weekend (again against my better judgement). Not much has changed on the doping front. People get caught and then say, “oh yeah, it’s easy to beat the system.” A blast from the past re-appeared, Simeoni. I really like this guy. Simeoni could possibly be a tool, he could [...]
