COOL THINGS O' THE DAY:

(bullet) Home Depot has dies extendsion cords that be da bomb ... they caleld "Slender cords" and are 1/2" deep and angled so you can plug two into two outlets by each other and still mount rails an inch in front of them without crimpoing the cable... and there are 3 plugs at the end of the cord, with no on/off switch to accidentally hit! I BOUGHT HOME DEPOT'S WHOLE SUPPLY. Mwa hah hah.

(bullet) work wait, that wasn't cool. that was a day replay item. the title of this post is COOL THINGS O' THE DAY. get it fucking together, yo. sorry.

(bullet) lacking internet, roomies and i watched 80% of goonies on dvd (from pal whitaker... thanks again!). talked with dina for a long time in the middle... funny stories, but too long and with too much required context ot relay here. PROCEED:

(bullet) The TROWELHOUSE DRUNKFEST 2001 was mad the fuck cool. I think everybody there was very cool and I think I could spend days with each one of them being happy and having intelligent and fun (even drunken) conversations.

(bullet) at&t bitch slapped exite @home and said, 'yoyo we offered yo' pansy asses $407 million but if yo' stock holders dont' wannts it and are gonna shut down srevice for our friendly customers, we'ze gonna build ours own network and DHCP theys asses over to us so yous aint gonna get shit.. no tears, no $407 capitals ems. ya hear?' and so we cometh back from the drunkeness and dhcp saves us, bringing us into the network that is 12.228.*. thank you, AT&T!

(bullet) and now, i sleep. what do i have to do tmoorrow? nothing. both my german and math i did last thurs night for friday are actually due monday, so i have no homewokr score score score score score hellyah

Some parts of the AT&T network never had any problem. We have AT&T, but we're on the old MediaOne network, so we haven't had any connectivity problems. @home was just our default homepage, which I could really care less about.

Those are the coolest cords. I've used them in racks myself.

Don't vilify @Home too much. Rumor has it AT&T tried to strongarm them into bankruptcy so that they could buy them very cheap (and $307mil is cheap), which almost worked, had not Cox and others offered to buy them as well, thus raising their price.

Excite@Home was doomed for bankruptcy - not by AT&T's doing. Competing offers did not cause the problems. It was the stupid bond holders that are trying to get all their money back. AT&T said they would build their own network if @Home didn't accept the offer. @Home probable thought they were bluffing because they called the bluff and shut down the network. Turns out that AT&T probably wasn't bluffing. Bondholders are now screwed - serves them right.

AT&T's new network

Looks like AT&T isn't filtering port 80 yet, so once again we can run web servers off of our cable modems. Yah baby! I was hurting without my cable service for about 24 hours.... I am suprised that AT&T has been so quick to get their new network going.

Did you watch the commentary with all of the actors all grown up? It's interesante.

You mean these losers?
The one on the far right looks like he should be a pirate or a Patrick Swayze impersonator. And I think his right hand is up the ass of the guy in front of him.

That would explain the grin on the guy-in-front-of-him's face.
