Weird Dreamweaver bug

Do you have Dreamweaver 8 (might happen in MX or MX2004 as well)? Open up a CSS file (make sure all your other files are saved).

Make a few rules in the file. Now right before the closing } on one of your rules, add an apostrophe ( ‘ ), and hit save.

If your setup is anything like mine, you should see Dreamweaver disappear, and you cant get it open again. Nice, Macromedia. Real nice.

Anyways, to get it to where you CAN open DW again, open that CSS file and remove the offending apostrophe.

I have no idea …

The coming oil crash

Well, not really. I was reading Life After the Oil Crash a few years ago, and even hear Matt on Coast to Coast back in September.

For those that don’t know, the site is a doom and gloomer, predicting the downfall of civilization as we know it, because we’re running out of oil. At first, he seemed to make a convincing argument, and mentally I was already preparing for what life would be like if technology scaled back 100-200 years.

But after some thought, I realize Matt has political motivations for saying what he says. I am sure he believes it, …

Mosley v. Vargas

Well, I’m not sure how many of you are into boxing, but tonight there looks to be a pretty decent fight coming on PPV.
Now, this fight would have been way more exciting about 5 years ago, but hey, I’ll take what I can get.
For those that don’t know, Shane Mosley is going to be fighting Fernando Vargas.

Let me say, going into this, I am completely biased. I used to be the webmaster for the Mosley’s, as well as personal friends, and let’s just say things got "legal".

So, that being said, let’s get into the fight.

My …

American Idol

For the last four seasons, I have NOT been an American Idol fan, at all. Frankly, the only person who has really done anything with their celebrity, and actually produced decent music, has been Kelly Clarkson. The rest, especially Fantasia and Rueben have really kinda just grated on my nerves (Clay Aiken was good, but his style was just very appealing to the AARP crowd).
This season, though, there is some REALLY great and original talent. Right now, I have 4 people from both girls and guys that I can see winning, and right fully so.
The first two people …

PureVolume.com

Okay, I am probably so insanely behind the times on this one, but seriously, PureVolume just freakin rocks. Seriously rocks.

Also, it has a really slick design courtesy of Ryan Sims @ Neubix Studios.

I’ve found some really awesome stuff there, but my personal fave of the moment is Bleed The Dream. Check out their song Who’s Killing Who. Great stuff….…

Us Whiny Christians

Well, it turns out that Britney Spear’s forthcoming appearance on Will & Grace is causing quite the stir, and NOT because of Britney’s acting.
A conservative Christian group, and yes, I am a conservative Christian, is complaining that NBC is "denigrating Christians".

I am sorry, but a Christian cooking segment called Crucifixins? That’s freakin hilarious! And I am NOT a fan of Will & Grace.

Since when did we turn in such a whiny bunch of babies? Even if they’re motive is to attack us, I hardly think poking fun at us is cause to get into an uproar.…

Helen Thomas is an idiot…

So, Helen Thomas was shunned by President Bush at a press conference, because she was going to ask some "tough" questions of the president.
"She also had another question at the ready, just in case, this one about the president’s contention that a 28-year-old wiretapping law known as FISA is out of date, which prompted him to order the National Security Agency to conduct a secret electronic surveillance program that Democrats contend is illegal. ‘You keep saying it’s a 1978 law, but the Constitution 200 years old. Is that out of date, too?’"

Okay moron, the Constitution isn’t centered …

L.A. Times writer doesn’t support the troops

It appears that Joel Stein doesn’t support the troops. I personally don’t see what all the hoopla is about.
Frankly, I can respect the fact that he doesn’t support a group of people he opposes. I think it’s a tad retarded whenever senators blast the president, but "support the troops". Support them doing what? Following the president’s orders? Just say you hate em all, and get it over with.

I, however, disagree with Joel Stein. I think the war in Iraq was justified, even without WMD’s, but the fact that all my fellow conservatives are getting all pissy because …

What if?

I’ve been thinking about Iraq and Iran situations, and I was wondering.
What if the entire war with Iraq wasnt about oil, wasnt about WMD’s, wasnt about Sadaam at all? What if the entire thing was about Iran, and Iraq was a decoy to set up a base of operations from which to engage in war with Iran?

Let’s walk through how that would play out:
It’s 2002, and you have intel that says that Iran is working with the Russians to enrich uranium for the purpose of building nukes.
You have Hussein, who you know wouldnt mind taking the …

If only people left their email’s for me to respond to…

Here is what I got in the mail today:

"man, anti-abortion but pro capital punishment. not right. you go on about the death of an innocent in the womb yet have you considered the death of an innocent on death row? it happens. it has happened. it will happen again. if the death of one innocent is alright when you kill some guilty too, then i guess you can sleep easy at night.

sick."

Just a few points to make on this one:

  1. Innocents die on death row? Really, when? I’d like to see a case or two of people
