carved from the earth
with the power to breathe life with a smile,
his polished ivory skin
and chameleon-like eyes
never miss what they’re looking for

salmon pink and perfect to the touch,
his mouth can stop me from falling
and his fingers push limits all over my body

twilight in the forest
smoke trails leaving my lips to his,
we breathe in deep the silver light.
our fortunes materializing in fading atmospheres,
the waiting hurts

spread out like death
upon barren rocks i wait
and the tides tease my hands
and the waves crash against my face;
i can taste you in the salty foam
i can feel you in its jet stream warmth

and it washes over me

Hotmail will now auto-magically delete email for you

tcr! · Oct 3, 2011 at 7:33 pm

Microsoft aiming to clean up Hotmail user’s inboxes

The idea here is to allow users to feel confident that they don’t have to constantly be flooded with new messages from frequent message senders. This feature allows users to automatically keep only the latest message from a specific sender. They can choose to have additional messages moved to a folder or to delete older messages after three, 10, 30, or 60 days.

Pesonally, I think people just need to take control of their Inbox, similar to taking control of a pile of papers on your desk. My Inbox always stays tidy; more on that in a future post.

$10 says more than one user will have something important nuked.

Machine learning always fails.

That might be a little bit of "sensationalism" in the headline. I doubt if they'll just auto-magically turn it on and set the dial to delete after 3 days.

Just a Reminder - World Ends October 21

tcr! · Oct 3, 2011 at 6:58 pm

Harold Camping reaffirms October date for the end of the world, says May 21 date was ‘invisible judgment day’

Harold / Homer - the end is near

“It wont be spiritual on October 21st,” Camping said, adding, “the world is going to be destroyed all together, but it will be very quick.”

[…]

“We had all of our dates correct,” Camping insisted, clarifying that he now understands that Christ’s May 21 arrival was “a spiritual coming” ushering in the last five months before the final judgment and destruction.

Anybody got plans for October 22?

SS Badger dumping TONS of coal ash - “Harmless as Sand”

tcr! · Oct 3, 2011 at 7:37 am

On Lake Michigan, a coal-burning steamship gets a pass

Chicago Tribune front page - On Lake Michigan, a coal-burning steamship gets a pass

But every day it sails between this old shipbuilding port and Ludington, Mich., the Badger dumps nearly 4 tons of coal ash into Lake Michigan — waste concentrated with arsenic, lead, mercury and other toxic metals. During its spring-to-fall season, federal records show, the amount far exceeds the coal, iron and limestone waste jettisoned by all 125 other big ships on the Great Lakes combined.

[…]

As the last season before the EPA’s deadline comes to an end, the owners instead are seeking an exemption from the federal Clean Water Act that would delay a fix until at least 2017.

Not sure why this boat is still allowed on the water. It should’ve been docked years ago. Worse still is that people rally behind the SS Badger.

Brooklyn Bridge Protest - Similar to Egypt?

tcr! · Oct 2, 2011 at 6:29 am

More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

The arrests took place when a large group of marchers, participating in a second week of protests by the Occupy Wall Street movement, broke off from others on the bridge’s pedestrian walkway and headed across the Brooklyn-bound lanes.

Occupy Wall Street has a live stream of goodness.

One Two Three Kings

One Two Three Kings
What strange friends the starlight brings

One Two Three Kings
So many mangers to bless
So many psalms to sing

One Two Three Kings
Myriad expeditions
To brave
And arrange
As the pendulum swings
Through time
Through dreams
And time
And
Time again

Kindle Fire Sans 3G

tcr! · Sep 28, 2011 at 8:26 pm

The new Kindle Fire looks way cool, got everything you’d want in a 7” tablet with a not too shabby UI.

But WiFi only? The webpage lists 9 references to the word “cloud.” How much of that data up in AWS is going to be accessible when you don’t have a WiFi signal?

Amazon Silk, now that’s revolution in the browser wars – not hiding the http:// bits in the address bar.

Glued Meat Down Under

scene missing

Just ignore the 15 second intro commercial.

I don’t know why they call this stuff hamburger helper. It does just fine by itself, huh? I like it better than tuna helper myself, don’t you, Clark?
