: Adobe
Read it, learn and weep. The learning part is cool, but for heavens sake Adobe, how could you do this?
: Poem written by a friend
This is something a friend of mine wrote, I found it really funny although I think you need to be a programmer to understand the humor in this: His mother a method, was ever so busy, She always did her job, never did she stop. But one day a status, she could not process, Caused her to throw him, propagating up. He did not know why, Never was he caught. An unknown exception, Propagating upward. No class knew how to, handled he was not, He might not intend to, The program did stop. This was written bij Enilias, someone I have known for years through IRC and also real life.

It is possible, if you have a Google account, just log on to your account and find the option to disable tracking and targeted ads. I did this, you know what the result was? I suddenly got a shitload of ads for...
: Facebook Denied
Everyone probably saw the picture on the front page and to the left here, so yes, Facebook denied, why? Well, it's not as if I hate Facebook or social networking, personally I wouldn't want to put all my info on a site like Facebook but hey, it's not like what I do with this site is so different, I put loads of pictures here and give some information about my self and what I like or don't like. Now I even started blogging, it's not so different. So why then do I think Facebook is bad? Well, again, it's not Facebook itself which is bad, the things I get annoyed by are things like the story I...
