rants

Some times I just want to rant about political stupidity, and the population of sheep.

Google Adsense Suspended

It's not very often that I will say anything negative against Google. In fact I use a slew of their "free" offerings ranging from GMail to Adsense to Webmaster Tools to Blogger to Reader to Drive to Talk to... well you get the point. Not long ago osTicket released a new version, and as most of you know I'm a fairly avid supporter or and member of the osTicket community and have been for several years... This of course means that my site got a slew of traffic and much of it from osticket.com.

Recycling: Businesses

Political: 

Today I went outside here at work, and the bar next door has about six large trashbags tucked behind their dumpster, and I got to thinking. NH seems to be a little behind the times on recycling laws. How many resources are dumped into land fills that we could easily recycle? Things like cans, bottles, papers. What businesses are the largest producers of this type of waste? Bars and restaurants. How could we incentivize (is that a word?) these companies to recycle?

Dogman

Political: 

I am distracted today. Last night Dogman (our neighbor) yelled obscenities out the window at my wife because she was cleaning the snow off her car. Sure she used a shovel to push the snow off her car, and shoveled the section between the cars afterwards. But did she really deserve for you to yell at her again? The last time you yelled at her because you had someone parking in her spot who wasn't a tenant and I blew the horn. Read your lease, parking is for tenants only. You don't own a shovel. You refuse to help pay the snow plow.

Jack Thompson : Please commit suicide

Everyone in the States has heard of the ESRB if they play video games. The Entertainment Software Rating Board is a non-profi, self regulatory board essentially started and owned by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA). They assign ratings to video games to give parents a better idea of the content of that video game. They also help enforce industry adopted advertising guidelines. Also according to their site they some how help with online privacy. (Not sure how, didn't read that indepth about that one.)
