Storm Worm Is Infecting Blogs February 28, 2007Posted by Retired Geezer in Terrorist Hemorrhoids.
…Alperovitch says that when someone with an infected PC sends a message with Hotmail, Gmail, or Yahoo! Mail, or posts a message to an online forum or blog, the Trojan is actually able to add text to the entry or message.
I think they mean ‘post a Comment’.
The Storm Worm will append a ‘Have you seen this?’ link along with another link to what appears to be a video, according to Secure Computing. If anyone proceeds to click on that link, their computer will become infected.

Here I figured Dave was more than up to the task of pimping himself, but he hinted that he could use a hand. In the spirit of ecumenical outreach, Dave braved a week in the hinterlands of Utah. He was in Utah County, which makes Salt Lake City (and county) look like San Francisco. Besides showing off his knowledge of Utah history, you’ll find out if he:
- saw any brown people
- was able to buy liquor
- licked road salt off his finger
- thinks “six inches” is bragging
The answers are there. You go. You read.
IB Contest – create your own blues name February 28, 2007Posted by daveintexas in Commenting Tips, Crime, Gardening, Philosophy.
I know. It’s old. But it’s still fun.
Much more challenging than the “create your own pron star name” formula (name of your first pet + street you lived on), this one involves a little creativity, and scientific/medical research. It goes like this:
1. Name of a disease or infirmity
2. Name of a fruit
3. Last name of a US President
My own personal favorite is “Blind Lemon Taft“, but I also like “Jakeleg Strawberry Jackson“.
Those names just got the blues written all over em.
So let’s hear it IBers (and guest readers). What’s your blues name?
Oh, and since I know you’re curious, my pron name would be Saber Pebble Beach.
I am teh sexay.
UPDATE: feel free to throw in your pron name too.
UPDATE #2: lauraw reminded me of another funny. Next time you read your fortune in a fortune cookie, add the phrase “in bed” to the end of it. Whatever it is, this always works.
“You wisely believe of the goodness of mankind….in bed“.
“You have a good heart, and are well admired…in bed“.
“You maintain a sense of balance in the midst of great success…in bed“.
Life with Rulon February 27, 2007Posted by skinbad in Gardening.
Remember this cat? He won the gold medal in Greco-Roman wrestling by beating the unbeatable Russian in 2000. If he gives you the choice of wrestling with him or hanging out with him for a weekend, I might take the wrestling.
He just survived a plane crash in Lake Powell, swam for an hour in 40 degree water and survived a night in the 20s in wet clothes. This is the latest.
I dream of Geezer February 27, 2007Posted by kevlarchick in Music.
I dreamt of Geezer last night. Or was it a nightmare?
I was at a Deep Purple concert with my sisters. Since we are all three so fine, we were immediately invited onstage by Ritchie Blackmore. He looked hot–those black pants and the axe….
Did I say Geezer was in the dream? My sisters and I are chillin on a leather couch onstage and here comes Geezer! He’s in a big hurry, bumps fists with me, says “Hey KC! I gotta run! My horses are sick and I gotta take care of ’em!”
Geezer left a Deep Purple concert to muck out a stall.
At Long Last February 26, 2007Posted by BrewFan in Heroes.
A hero got the nation’s highest honor today, 41 years later. If you’d like an idea of this man’s bravery, watch the movie “We Were Soldiers Once” (or read the book by Hal Moore). You’ll be glad you did.
Will They Listen? February 26, 2007Posted by BrewFan in Politics.
Sen. Joseph Lieberman appeals for reason in this excellent piece he wrote for the Wall Street Journal. One of many excellent points he makes is:
Many of the worst errors in Iraq arose precisely because the Bush administration best-cased what would happen after Saddam was overthrown. Now many opponents of the war are making the very same best-case mistake–assuming we can pull back in the midst of a critical battle with impunity, even arguing that our retreat will reduce the terrorism and sectarian violence in Iraq.
So, will they listen? I’m not optimistic. The career of Congress-person has developed into such a lucrative business that I’m afraid that too many of our elected Senators and Representatives place self-interest above all else.
Dave in Texas live blogs the Oscars! February 25, 2007Posted by daveintexas in Ducks.
It’s a magical evening.
Ok, I’m just bullshitting you. I’m watching Patton and nodding off. After I clean the guns.
If I recall correctly, George C. Scott was awarded an Academy award for this performance, and he told them to get bent.
I like that.

Making History February 25, 2007Posted by BrewFan in Heroes, History, Sports.
UPDATE: Kudos to the Buckeyes (what the hell is a buckeye anyway?), see you in the tournament.
For the first time ever a University of Wisconsin basketball team is ranked #1 in the country. I realize that some of the lesser, unimportant polls seem to think another team should be number 1, but they’re just wrong. Duh.
In any event, the issue looks like it will be resolved this coming weekend. I’m thinking by this time next week we’ll have us some Buckeye Beyotchs. :)
President Bush Impersonation February 25, 2007Posted by Retired Geezer in Gardening.
Pretty funny Google Video taken at the White House Correspondents Dinner.
Steve Bridges, a Bush Impersonator, interprets the President’s thoughts.
One thing I love about the President is that he has a sense of humor and is a good sport about poking fun at himself.
It’s 11 minutes long but worth the time.
Maybe Site Admin can embed it.

Thank Gaia For James Cameron February 24, 2007Posted by BrewFan in Philosophy, Politics, Religion, Science.
Now all those xtian fundy terrorists will finally be forced to face the truth. Does this mean honorary membership for James in the vaunted Jesus Seminar? I don’t want to hear any of you beclowned Christers trying to tell me this isn’t science. We’re talking DNA people! I guess this guy is going to need a job soon.
