The Minstrel is Moutstrel

Doh!
While I was at work today, I took advantage of an open period (and the school's broadband server) to write a really cool post for this site. It was political, but neutral. Actually, it was more philosophical than anything. I spent almost an hour on it.

When I hit the "publish post" button, I got an error message, and Internet Explorer exited. My work vanished in the blink of an eye.

I hate Internet Explorer...

Anyway, I'm off for four days of shepherding uniformed monkeys through important historical sites. I'll resume posting and botanizing after I get back...assuming I'm not either dead, hospitalized, or in jail for aggravated assault.

Sayonara!

You think that Explorer exiting was a quirk? Remember, when you think that Bush or the secret police rule this world, you are wrong. Bill Gates controls all, and we are nothing but his pawns in his twisted game of chess! Battlechess that is!

Bwooo ha ha ha ha ha ha

.... or maybe he's just playing some solitaire. Ah, sweet sweet Solitaire. And minesweeper. Mmmmmm Mines. Those soft and cuddly mines. Squeeze a mine for me, would ya? ... IN YOUR UNDERWEAR!!!! HA HA AH AH AHA HA HA HAHAH HA HA HA HA

(ok, but my daughter would have probably laughed at the underwear thing.) [MEAT]Meat!![/MEAT]

Um, please don't talk about mines in people's underwear. Hits a bit close to home ;)

yes its just the tip of the iceberg .... solitiare minesweeper ...battlechess ....

unpatched windows servers ... proliferating admin passwords... unsecure modems and microsoft access ...but dont worry .. *gloating corporate chuckles here*... they are all secure and looked after when it comes to one important function in the democratic process. Why do you need secret police as much when you have corporations that constantly profess their neutrality? yet never really deliver on a promise ...like functionally unbroken software? Hahahahahahahaaa haaaahhhhha ... bill gates is mandor .. formerly susan ..

"Winston Smith! Put down your Microsoft Gin and Microsoft Cigarettes and resume calisthenics!"

Smith wanted to throw something at the wall-size poster of Bill Gates in his dingy apartment with stained walls, but to betray even a sour facial expression might mean 5 years in the Ministry of Love or MS-Luv as the "party" called it. There was no escaping the cameras of Big Bill, even at home.

Smith affected a serene smile and continued his situps.
