Making fun of stuff

What happens if the supervolcano under Yellowstone National Park erupts?

The one supervolcano flowchart everyone should read!

Update, December 7, 2009: Check out this rad “Heart of the Caldera” sign we saw by the side of the road during our trip through at Yellowstone National Park.

I told you that flowchart was deadly serious.

Claüs freaks me out

Tell me I’m not alone on this one. I mean he’s a young dude with a white beard. Mommy, is Santa an albino?

Sprint's Centro Claus ad

The ad links to by the way. I’ve seen it around on Digg and The Onion.

I like how they’re trying to be all viral with “homemade” videos on YouTube at SantasGoneCentro. I’m not quite sure it’s working for them.

I wonder what sort of crazy shit people are texting Claüs? Man they should be publishing that! In real time! On Twitter! Now that would be conversational marketing gold.

Windows Vista Point

Vista Point, The Wow starts now.

I can’t be the only one who’s thought it. (I, however, take the Alexander Ave exit to get to work.)

In related news, I’m planning on moving my primary laptop (Thinkpad T42) over to Ubuntu (for reasons mentioned earlier). It’s been running just fine on my X23 for the last few months, and at work since I started at FM. I like the painless package management (Synaptic). I like that I can do development on it. I like that there’s a new release every 6 months.

I will miss Fireworks MX 2004, but remain hopeful that Wine will one day support it (or Adobe will open source it). It appears that Fireworks 8 works!

Update: For future reference, the [surprisingly small list of] apps that I use on Windows, and their Linux equivalents, where different.

Geek Squad ads that actually make sense

I mean c’mon Ubuntu is WAY geekier than Windows Vista.

Geek Squad parody ad: We've spent more time with Ubuntu than is socially acceptable.
Geek Squad parody ad: Knowing all about Linux makes us geeks. Helping you with it makes us Geek Squad.
