I emerged in London rain

"...I remember the night we walked along the Seine
Riding on The Metro..."

John 13:34-35: ""A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.""

I think moaning should be involved

I'm apparently doing the moaning meme because the hottest MILF I know, Ms. Mamma, requested I do so. So I am. Don't I just rock? :)

Five people who will be annoyed you tagged them:

No one. The only person I'd send this would be Ms. Mamma and since she already did it I can't send it to anyone. Sorry!

4 things that should go into room 101 and be removed from the face of the earth.

1. Bush (the president)
2. Bush (just guess)
3. Jesus freaks
4. Homophobia (I guess that relates to Jesus freaks)

3 things people do that make you want to shake them violently.

1. Using the word 'gay' in place of the word 'stupid'.
2. Torture
3. Saying that people who don't have health insurance should "just go buy some."

2 things you find yourself moaning about

1. Humidity (I'll second that babe)
2. Politics (Big surprise there)

1 thing the above answers tell you about yourself.

I use too many parenthesis.

* Link to the original meme at freelancecynic.com so people know what it's all about!
* Be as honest as possible, This is about letting people get to know the real you!
* Try not to insult anyone - unless they really deserve it or are very, very ugly!
* Post these rules at the end of every meme!

Where do you expect us to go...

 when the bombs fall?

2 Corinthians 9:7: "Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."

Update on Vista Metadata Project

For anyone who cares, I just released Alpha Preview 2 of the Vista Metadata Project. Has a few fixes but most of the major bugs are still there. Anyone who knows anything about C++ or is willing to learn and wants to help should contact me!

Psalm 34:8: "Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!"

iTunes is a bad neighbor

My brother got an iPod for graduation and he's been using my computer as his docking station. Since Apple must do everything their own way, that means I needed to install iTunes. While I personally dislike iTunes, it does have the ability to listen to Windows Media files. That was very helpful as it meant I didn't have to rip all my CDs into iTunes separately as I've already done that in Windows Media player. Unfortunately things didn't go as planned.

You see iTunes can't actually play Windows Media files like every media player on the face of the earth, including players for Linux and Mac. No they have to "transcode" (which means convert from one file format to another) Windows Media files to Apple's own M4A format. M4A files take about the same amount of space as a Windows Media file so now my music takes twice as much space as before and Windows Media Player and Windows Search finds two copies for every song. That's annoying.

I don't expect iPods to support Windows Media files. What I do expect is iTunes to keep the transcoded data in a format that doesn't double the size of my media library and hide it so Windows Search and Windows Media Player don't find two copies of every friggin' song. Shame on Apple for being horrible computing neighbors. Computers are tools to improve people's lives, not burdens to make our lives more difficult.

John 1:14: "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth."
