Google's trying to be GeoCities now?

Inspiration would have been helped by sleeping before half one last night rather than fighting with trackers. Oh well, never mind. brain_hurts, I'll have that DVD for you soon.

Need to sort out a credit card of some kind, if only so I can pay for things online. The one thing that really pisses me off about RBS is their policy of only giving customers Maestro debit cards. LTSB saw me right with a Visa Debit card, but that account's been abused to Hell and back, and after my experiences with them I'd rather not have another penny of my cash go through their systems.

For some reason, Manchurian Candidates-style shell-personas are on my mind again. Time to stir the mental soup some more. And go for Yet Another Bru.

Our programming wizards tried their darndest to get Google Page Creator to work with as many browsers as possible. But alas, even the most expert practitioners of web sorcery must sleep now and again, lest their JavaScript magic run dry.

Bah.

Google does everything now. Supposedly they get pissed off when you accuse them of doing anything but their original claim of 'organizing the world's information' or call Google a 'web portal,' but y'know what?

Just because they're in denial about their graduation to official corporate whoredom... well, you get the rest.

I'm just waiting for the Google-brand toaster to be released, which will burn those little ads into your bread.

What's sad is that I'd totally buy that toaster for the amusement value.

What's even more sad is that so would I.

I'd buy the components and roll my own.

Of course, you'd be enjoying toast while I was soldering, but I'd have the Moral High Donkey™ and thus could wax lyrical about the benefits of Free-As-In-Libre toast and curse the closed-source empire of toasters. While frothing, too.

Actual toast tastes better than moral superiority, though I dunno about the satisfaction quotient. Perhaps frothing tastes good with jam too, I dunno.
