Another Problem with Obama

Okay, watching the debate. Why does Obama keep answering a question by saying, "The question we should be asking is .... " Um, no. The question has already been asked. Answer that one, not the one you think should have been the question. That makes a debate pointless. Answer the questions that you are asked, not the ones you think should be asked. What an idiot!

3rd Time is the Charm

Doubtful. For the third time since January 2005, I have to haul my iMac to the Apple store. Power supply problem. I just hope they'll still honor the warranty. If you know me, you know I'd rather use paper and pen than use a PC, I'd follow Apple to the ends of the Earth, but really! What's the deal with the faulty power supplies in the iMac G4s? If I'd had to pay for it last time (exactly a year ago to the month), it would have cost nearly $1000 (power supply & logic board.)

In other news... here is a journal entry from this day in 1990:

Wed. Sept. 26, 1990 - 4:51 pm
God! Lisa will love this! She loves the Doors! I'm at Kevin's at his band's rehearsal and he sounds just like Jim Morrison! She'll freak out! I'm sitting in the living room and they're in the bedroom. They're pretty damn good. I blew all my classes yesterday but did some yearbook brainstorming – Kevin just came and asked me what they should classify themselves as – he suggested "modern classic rock." I told him I'd think on it. Anyway, they're doing a slow song now. Yup, they're pretty good. – Well, yesterday, me and Tami Melvin went to Gumby's. Had a good time! Keef was there. – I gotta go.
Ah, memories! Lisa: still my best friend. Gumby's: my fave bar in college. Tami Melvin: a good friend in college, especially that first semester. I've emailed with her recently. Kevin: a cute longhair I dated once. Keef: the one that got away.

Hottie of the Week!

Shemar Moore from the TV show Criminal Minds. Pretty much the reason I started watching. I just think he's adorable.

Favorite political quote of the day.

"Vote for the Hero and not the Zero."

As said in a comment at Michelle Malkin's blog.

Got sarcasm?

Only Greg Gutfeld could get to the bottom of Sarah Palin's remarkable rise to fame and power. Everything will be explained!

Be careful who your friends are...

Maybe Rev. Wright isn't the worst friend Obama has. Obama says he isn't good friends with William Ayers, but I wouldn't even want to live in the same town as this guy. Read about him here!

This Day in MY History!

It being Sept. 11, I thought I'd post some of my journal entries I made on this fateful day back in 2001, as events unfolded. At the time, I was living in a high-rise apartment building in downtown Pittsburgh.

...My horoscope did not say today would be the day the world ended. This morning, 4 airplanes were hijacked. One was flown into one of the World Trade Towers. About 10 minutes later, a 2nd one crashed into the other tower. They were evacuating people about an hour later when one at a time, the towers collapsed.... Locally, all the universities shut down at noon. All federal buildings in the whole country have been evacuated. All of downtown here has been evacuated. Nationally, every single flight in the whole country has been grounded... The White House has been evacuated and no one knows where the President is. Air Force One is in the air somewhere flanked by fighter jets. This whole thing is really really unreal. It looks like they've closed down the bridges and tunnels into downtown Pittsburgh...

I can't believe the World Trade Center no longer exists...You should see the video of the Towers collapsing. It's just horrible. People had broken windows near the top floors to get air and were waving for help. Then the whole thing collapsed. All these people were jumping from the 100th floor and so on. Can you imagine? Can you imagine living through the planes crashing into the buildings and then having the building just collapse underneath you? We said another Pearl Harbor would never happen. This is worse. This is not a military strike. It's a human strike!

The Palistinians on the West Bank are celebrating the attacks... They are giving out candy on the West Bank. Okay, time to blow the West Bank to somewhere else on the globe. The astronauts at the space station say they can see the smoke from space.

This has been the longest hour and a half of my life ever. It seems like all this came to head hours and hours ago, but I didn't get any detailed info until I got home from school, which was after noon, and it's only 1:40 now.
The country may take time on Sept. 11 every year to remember those that died that day in 2001, but I don't think many people remember how they felt that day. The horror, the sadness, the helplessness. If more people remembered how they felt that day, rather than the physicalities of what happened that day, more people would be concerned about our national security.

Biden Gaffe #682

OMG! This is classic Biden!

McCain Blogette: Whatever your political leanings, you should check out this website. It's from Meghan McCain (John McCain's daughter.) As someone who lost her father and misses him terribly, I find this website refreshing in its candor of a daughter's love. It's unaffected and genuine. Plus I love all the photos of life on the campaign trail.
(See live updated link at right.)

Password Wallet: I've been trying for years to come up with the best way to store passwords. First, I used an Excel spreadsheet. Easy to put them in, not so easy to search for the one you're looking for and get it out. Then I created my own little database in FileMaker Pro. That worked for a long time and it was easy to search for what you wanted. Then, when I bought a new laptop, I suddenly had two sets of passwords (one on the desktop, one on the laptop, and possibly a third at work) to combine. It was tedious trying to manually sync up the machines. Well, Password Wallet does all that for you. It easily stores everything, has a place for notes (I usually put in the date I created my passwords), it will help generate them, and the feature I love best, it will sync up with another Wallet file so they are both the same! One master password is all you need to get in the program. And, it's shareware. A mere $20 for all that!
