Song of the Day: Diamonds and Gold by Tom Waits
Tom Waits is the master. Anything from his 1983 Swordfishtrombones until now is just wonderful. I just randomly picked a song because there are so many good ones. In my opinion this is from his best album. (Alternative)

Setting the Record Straight: An Analysis of the Justice Department's PATRIOT Act Website October 27, 2003 The Department of Justice has launched a website, http://www.lifeandliberty.gov, to defend the PATRIOT Act. As more and more people are raising concerns about the broad powers granted to the Justice Department - powers it does not need and is not using to fight terrorism - the Department is spending time and money on a public relations campaign, including a website and a tour of the country by the Attorney General to talk to law enforcement officers. But just as Attorney General Ashcroft has done in his speeches around the country, the website fails to engage on the substantive criticisms of the PATRIOT Act, instead touting provisions that no one objected to at the time the legislation was enacted and that no one has been objecting to since. Where the website does address controversial aspects of the law, it provides misleading, incomplete and, in some cases, incorrect ...

Blog T-shirts
Do you remember the shirt I had on me at the Blogtalk? (source: Heiko Hebig) As some of you may know, I had bought it a few hours before my departure to Vienna in a Polish online shop (BUTIK.PL), because I found the idea wonderful - my favorite drawings from a blog on my own shirt. (the blog is here). A few days ago, I have been informed that BUTIK.PL, the shop online created by three Polish bloggers (I already wrote about it in this post) is now available in English and for customers from abroad. So if you'd like to have a Polish T-shirt, sweatshirt, mug or bag like this one ... or a BLOG mug and bag like like these ones, just do it :) I don't have my own shop there yet, but as soon as I create something special for you, I'll let you know. (practical information concerning payments and shipping is available here)

"Pretentious" vs. "Snobbish"
JohnMont put down the results of a rather long conversation about the differences between snobbish and pretentious that occurred on a walk back from the PDC with Prashant and myself. It even continued on into conversation at the Engine Company -- I think we were being snobbish that night.

Liberating the Panther
Mac OS X 10.3 (a.k.a. Panther) has been treating me mostly nicely so far. The only problem I've had is that my firewall somehow got screwed up, but a quick trip to the macosxhints Forums quickly fixed that. There are plenty of reviews everywhere, so I won't add to it. I will, however, discuss what I've found extremely cool and some interesting things I've noticed. Exposé. I love it. As I read somewhere, it really does make...

My ears are ringing -- about PHPCon
David Sklar mentioned my little PHPCon rant and I saw a bunch of traffic coming this way. Kinda weird. But it does provide me with an interesting opportunity... to get feedback from PHP folks directly -- So I propose some questions that I discussed in my BOF at PHPCon, looking for more feedback -- How do you feel about Microsoft becoming more present in the PHP community? Whether through attending events, or sponsorships, or other? I know there is some demand for PHP on Windows (just ask Shane Caraveo) -- what's your take? What prevents from exploring it? Anything that could make it better? Performance? Features? I heard lots of very interesting ideas around this at PHPCon, what's your take? I'm a glutton for punishment, I survived Sterling Hughes and Thies Arntzen , so I open up the general floor -- what do you want? What do you think? Tell me and I promise to listen, that is all I can promise, but I think that is a pretty good start. I am going to be in Las Vegas for Nov 15-20th ...

Joey: - Jag längtar till i kväll. Jag: - Varför då? Joey: - För då ska vi gå ut. Jag: - Jaså, vart ska ni gå? Joey: - Vi ska säga "gos eller budis". Nathalie började gapskratta. För barnen är Halloween en riktig tradition. Jag har inte vant mig vid det. För mig är det fortfarande ett försäljningsjippo. Alla hjärtans dag också. Fast det är lite fånigt för bägge traditionerna är ganska trevliga egentligen. Det enda jag har emot dem, är att de har tagits upp och marknadsförts av handeln.

Living with Brinkster: no
Brinkster [www.brinkster.com] host my web site(s) now for years. It seems I have to look for another free service more seriously now. Problems arising again and again. Some other people [e.g. diveintomark] like to have GoogleAds. But I don't like any ad on my pages while Brinkster force all free accounts to have one now. It is the ugly damn thing at the right side hiding all my shortcuts and links! And not to forgot: Brinkster don't like any .asp page with an embedded On error resume next if it is not switched back within the same function with a On error goto 0. This makes the simple use of any third party free .asp software a hard try and error upload task. No ftp upload/mail support on free accounts are just more points on the list.
