Learned during a trip to Italy: Italians really do say “mamma mia!”

i am a tool of the machines

Blogged by edjusted as general — edjusted Tue 19 Oct 2010 8:44 pm

As I stood in line at a local restaurant the other day, holding my coupon in my hand, it suddenly occurred to me that I was being used.

Let me backtrack. I received a special offer for the restaurant by email. The coupon that I printed out had a special code to make sure I couldn’t use it more than once. Maybe it identified me by email address or serial number or something.

As I stood in line, I realized that when the cashier scanned my coupon, presumably the cash register would contact some central database, look up my coupon code to identify me, and decide whether or not to approve my coupon. So really, all I was was a conduit or messenger for one machine to transmit a message to another machine.

It’s a bit primitive and inefficient, if you think about it. If the machines are going to take over the world, they need to come up with a better plan. But then again, they managed to get me to act as a messenger and deliver their message. Maybe it’s already too late…

FDIC insurance

Hmm…I agree with stupidityfordummies’ rant about people’s ignorance of FDIC’s insurance limits. Most people don’t realize that despite what all the news is saying, the FDIC does insure some accounts for over $100,000 per person. That drives me nuts, too.

ninja sushi

Blogged by edjusted as general — edjusted Fri 31 Aug 2007 8:44 am

i’m always interested in trying to figure out the reasoning behind a lot of decisions…i’m still scratching my head over a restaurant i saw last weekend called “ninja sushi,” located in a non-descript strip mall. i mean, who exactly are they trying to target?

“hey, let’s try ninja sushi. sounds like a place with fresh sushi!” – bzzzz
“hey, let’s try ninja sushi. sounds like a place with authentic sushi!” – bzzzz
“hey, let’s try ninja sushi. sounds like a place with…ninjas…eating…sushi???” – ding ding ding!

how to speed up windows vista

Blogged by edjusted as general — edjusted Thu 16 Aug 2007 11:27 pm

i recently bought a new computer that came with windows vista. after tinkering with it and getting frustrated with how slow it was, i spent some time changing this and that setting, and researching and following a lot of advice on the net on how to speed things up. a few days later, and i was still frustrated, especially after running the vista resource monitor to try to figure out the source(s) of the slowdowns managed to bring my already slow system to a halt, i figured out a very simple and relatively pain-free way to really speed up vista:
step 1: format hard drive
step 2: install windows xp
step 3: there is no step 3!
