Weird thing of the day 8 June 2005/1 Siwan 5765 (Day 45 of the `Omer/Ro'sh Hodhesh/National Taco Day)

Greetings.

Political update: There have been a lot of noteworthy articles on Backspin lately. Needless to say, the Stateless Arabs (“Palestinians”) are making a mockery of the notion that there is a truce between them and Israel.

Worthy cause of the day: John Conyers, Jr. -- Letter to Pres Bush Concerning the "Downing Street Minutes". It’s a petition demanding that George W. Bush clarify the accuracy of a British government document indicating that Bush and Blair were planning to go to war with Iraq no matter what and make up intelligence to justify doing so. Please sign and put the heat on our illegitimate president. Thank you.

I’m resisting the temptation to create an icon of Steve Jobs’s head on a silver platter. However, I expect that the next Mac I buy (probably in a year or two) have Wine pre-installed and run Windows programs as-is. If Mac OS X is moving to Intel hardware, Apple might as well erase any alleged advantage there might be for ever booting into Windows and scare the heebeejeebees out of Microsoft. Running 80x86 Linux binaries as-is, too, would also be cool and is definitely feasible.

Today’s weird thing are still Intel-related. 1) We have the tagline “I are Pentium of Borg. Division is futile. You will be approximated.” 2) We have Weird Al Yankovic’s song “It's All About the Pentiums”. Enjoy.
