Courtney Love Does the Math?

I just finished reading a fascinating article: "Courtney Love Does the Math" is a written version of a speech Courtney gave to the Digital Hollywood online entertainment conference on May 16th. While I am not conversant with the figures, and I personally don't care for Courtney, she actually did a fine job summing up the music industry in this day and age.

Pondering the Imponderable

That Alamo Bowl game pretty much sums up what it's like to be a Michigan fan this year. Yeah, the officiating was atrocious, but there's absolutely no reason why Nebraska ever should have gotten back in the game. Michigan pulled this garbage all year. At least their season, as well as the Tigers and Lions, will be over this weekend. Thankfully, the Pistons and Red Wings are leading their respective conferences so we Michigan sports fans won't have to fling ourselves into the closest Great Lake.

TextComplete 3.0 Released

Mobile Systems has released TextComplete 3.0 for PalmOS. TextComplete is a, well, text completion program that guesses the words you are writing in Graffiti to save some pen strokes. 2.7 was a great big pig and ate CPU cycles for breakfast, almost making it unusable on my Palm TX. 3.0 is far better, causing little or no noticeable slowdowns. I can even run it universally instead of app-by-app without worrying about hitches in even the most CPU-intensive apps. Check it out.


I've been noticing over the past couple of days that there seems to be some kind of funky bug in iTunes that causes it to shortchange some tracks uploaded to the iPod. This is very annoying when you're into a track and all of a sudden it just cuts off. Grr.

Carmack Interview

There's a very short interview with John Carmack over at Guardian Unlimited. In it he responds to questions about his Doom port to cell phones, and some slight discussion of his history in the gaming biz. Interesting interview, even if it's short.

NFL Week #16 Final

I managed to pick up a couple of games (one courtesy of my Lions--who knew?) this week so the final result won't seem so disastrous. I was 12-4 and Eeyore was 10-6. Year-to-date that makes me 161-79 (.671) while she is 164-76 (.683). It seems sad that there's only one week left in the regular season. Of course, as a Lions fan, maybe the year can't end quickly enough.

The Master comments: How about us Packer fans? Detroit looks GREAT in comparison right now. Gah.
