It's possible that the lesson to be learned here is that this is a flawed test... ;o)

I would like to think it's not, but one must consider all possibilities.

For personal comments I am mostly transitioning to my new blog, Quantum Entanglement. If you happen to be interested, most of my personal notes/comments will be there in the future.

I will mostly (but probably not exclusively) use Livejournal for participation in different communities that I view, participate in, and debate in from time to time.

I really, really, really would like to have this available to me to organize my computer desktop. I think it would really help me and fit the way I think and organize stuff. (Having said that, it would also drive others nuts that wind up looking over my shoulder sometimes when I work...

When a computer hard drive tanks (craters, cashes in, kicks the bucket, dies, prepares itself for the trash heap...), it's a highly disruptive event.

When it happens on your notebook computer while at a business meeting out of town, it's a traumatic event.

When that notebook computer has much of the work you've done over the last few years, it feels somewhat catastrophic.

The ever popular (?!?) "Word of the Day" [Jun. 19th, 2006|04:12 am]

Today's word is, "hubris."

For a formal definition, you can look here.

For a demonstration of hubris in action, simply look here and be astounded.

It is possible that I (or almost anybody else) could come across as arrogant at times. Most of us couldn't possibly hold a candle to these guys, though...

The word of the day is... patent troll.

There is a story about an attempt to halt the spread of "the despised cane toad" in Australia by introducing a gene that would cause future generations to all be male. Now, that may well be a good solution to the problem, but I found the following comment very funny:

"The expansion of the cane toad population is dependent on the number of females, because they lay between 7000 and 30,000 eggs, so this would limit the population."

Now, on the face of it that's fine.

But, really... the population is dependent on the number of females not chiefly because the females produce thousands of eggs, but because the males don't produce any.
