Take Out

I could have ordered pizza,
Hawaiian as I am prone.
But I would hide in my room,
to eat it all alone.

I could have ordered Chinese,
rice, beef and chicken too.
But I really do not like it,
especially with tofu.

I could have ordered Chicken,
it comes fries and coleslaw.
But with all those pesky bones,
I decided to withdraw.

I could have ordered gourmet,
Beef Tenderloin Grilled with Herbs.
But looking at the menu,
all the prices broke my curbs.

So Instead of ordering,
I made chicken with honey.
I fried it with my veggies,
and ate on my balcony.

A short collection of shorts

I should make coffee.
Because coffee  is awesome, coffee is great.
We all should have coffee before its too late.

Christmas time is coming, soon it will be here.
Did not get what you want? Try again next year.

I need just one more short, to make this complete.
I wish I had more, But I guess I’ll just cheat.

My foolish attempt at abstract art

So everyone.
Print out a copy, and hang on your walls.
Sooner then later, you’ll find it in halls.

The demand will be great, for piece like this.
So get yours soon, and bask in the bliss.

The cost at the moment, is quite small.
Two pence for paper, dare I say lawl.

Be sure to tell, all those you meet.
Of this fantabulous, marvalous feat.

Fantabulous Email

The following email was sent to me both to, and from an email address that DOES NOT EXIST. however, I got it anyways. 

I find it mildly amusing because they are pretending to be me. Also they did a scan with Terdos Antivirus (which claimed there was no virus, but AVG says there is.)

The infernal OS debate

I recently stumbled upon the following site http://srom.zgp.org/ in my daily shuffling through the intercontinental network.

Mildly amusing.

However I have never liked the OS debate. Usually it is Linux vs Windows which I find really annoying as it is like comparing cheese with tigers. They both have their uses, but not usually the same.

There are a number of different people in the great OS debate.

1. There are the Computer Geeks, They use Linux because it is what they know, it is what they like. They are more productive on it. 

2. There are the Anti-Microsoft people, They use Linux because they would rather use it then a Microsoft product.

3. There are the ignorant people, who simply are unable to understand windows, and as such assume something else would be easier.

4. There are the people who don’t care, and as such use what they are given (usually windows)

5. There are those who use windows because it is what they know, what they like, and are more productive on it.

My opinion on the matter is that Windows has its purpose, and Linux has its own purpose. For the average user, people need a simple desktop computer to do their internet and word processing. Now, I have used a number of different operating systems including all the different flavors of windows, and a number of major distributions of Linux, Novell, Various Mac OSs, Unix, and a few embedded systems. Not a whole lot in comparison to some people. But, Windows is in my opinion the most stable "windowed" OS on the market. So for the average user who only used the GUI, Windows is by far the easiest to learn and operate. Linux in my experience tends to be unstable with the X windows running, not to mention confusing. 

Linux has its purposes, It has a lot of power that most users would never use, and have even seen some distributions "limit" this power to make it more user friendly. But this power does allow the "power user" modify and improve the OS to fit their own needs. Linux makes a good server, one you can set up and ignore. But for the desktop user it is slow and buggy.

Windows is good for desktop applications, it is quicker then its Linux counterpart and tends to be easier to learn and operate, especially since it has a seamless clipboard and communication between applications, Something Linux has issues with. The stability of Windows, or the lack there of generally is caused by faulty applications, or drivers, plus windows tends to be more susceptible to user stupidity and virii.

I have seen windows run properly on a computers that Linux would crash unexpectedly. But I should not make this an anti-Linux blog, I like Linux, I just have no use for it. at all. All my programming can be done on windows, all my games are on windows, all my programs are on windows, and I prefer using them over the Linux versions.  Even though this server is in fact Linux, I can do all my work for it in php on my windows machines and run them on the server. I do have a Linux machine in case I ever need it, but lately it is has remained off a majority of the time. 

I hate the debate, it all really depends on what you need it for. Peoples ignorance, and prejudice tend to interfere with this simple reality. Very rarely to people even bother to compare the operating systems. A lot of people don’t really have the opportunity to compare. 

Ah well, what do I know.

Confusion in 6 parts. Part 2.

   Left. Right. No. Centre. Does it even matter? Which side of the cooler should I take the Dr Pepper from? Why do I want a Dr Pepper. Do I? Didn’t I just ask that? What am I doing here. Where is the Coke? They are out of Coke? How can they be out of Coke? There is this guy selling some on the street outside. Maybe should talk to him. Wait that does not sound right. Something is wrong here, can’t put my finger on it. Ok, The centre one. Looks nice. On second thought the one on the left. Why do they have to make this so confusing? Anything else? Chips? Cookies? Sweedish Berries? Do they make those in Sweeden? What about non-Sweedish Berries. Where do they come from? I know strawberries come from straw. Rasberries from ras. BlueBerries from blue. What am I talking about? I know Elderberries don’t come from elder, my cousin is from there and says they don’t. Or was that dragon Berries? What is a Dragon Berry? What was I doing? oh right Dr Pepper. Left? Right? Centre? hm. Left hand. right. Chips? Cookies? Candy? Did I just say right hand? there is nothing in my right hand. oh yeah that was left hand. Chocolate bar it is. Where is the counter? I saw one earlier. Near the candy. I should get some candy. No, I have chocolate. Do I want chocolate? Could I have both? Oh. Theres the counter. Money. What did I do with the money? pocket. Sounds right. hm. Recipt, change Yes, I have enough to get a coke.
