Triumph a Jedi?

I’ve gotten this from a couple people, and if you have the time and the bandwidth, it’s definitely worth both. Sent from the Conan O’Brien show, here is Triumph the Insult Comic Dog interviewing fans waiting for the opening of Star Wars II – AotC.

“And now for the ritualistic banging of the plastic swords.”

First in Google

I’ve finally secured the first entry in the google listings for a search for “buzolich“. I did it without using any googlebombing, meta-words, or any other gimmicks. Simple minds are easily amused.

New Indecorum Section

Maybe I’m just kidding myself by thinking that buzolich.com is somehow a high class site or more likely I’m afraid what my parents will say, but I’ve added a new section: Indecorum. When I get a good joke, or run across something that makes me laugh, I’ll steal it and post it in there. I’m not that creative, I don’t write these jokes or design the flash, I just make them available.

Other good news: buzolich.com will hopefully be switching to my new linux box. Got order confirmation from Walmart today!

Editor’s Note: What a flash back, that linux box was a few servers ago.

Slammers

Yesterday in the mail I got a notice from VeriSign with the following:

Domain Name Expiration Notice
Reply by: June 20, 2002

I stuck me as odd that I was getting a renewal notice so quickly, I just bought the buzolich.com domain in January….and wait, I registered with EasyDNS.com, not VeriSign. This is pretty shady.

I’ve read posting about how companies are basically stealing your business when acting like a renewal notice. They do disclose in step three that you need to “Sign the form to authorize payment and transfer to VeriSign.” The first time through I missed the transfer part and I was looking for it.

There are too many companies using spam and posing like something they aren’t so it must be working…or tricking a lot of people. It’s pretty rare to get a real deal in the mail or via spam….I would have just throw the letter away if I wasn’t interested in writing an entry about it. In that vein, how do I get credit card companies to stop sending me credit cards? They don’t seem to care that I’m rather unemployed right now…

VeriSign has lost any future business I would have given them.

Editor’s Note: All domain registrations are now done with godaddy.com

Hot Pants

I’d like to thank Kramer for the idea of putting my pants into the oven to warm them up. I wouldn’t have done it if not for the fact that all of my clothes were still damp from the wash. Cold jeans suck, but warm jeans….

I sure miss the dryer at Chez Hugo, almost as much as I miss the “Hoolie” calls early on a Saturday morning.

Newest Heavy Element

A major research institution has recently announced the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. This new element has been tentatively named “Administratium.”

Administratium has 1 neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 111 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by a force called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

Since Administratium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected as it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact.

A minute amount of Administratium causes one reaction to take over 4 days to complete, when it would normally take less than a second.

Administratium has a normal half-life of 3 years; it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization, in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons and assistant deputy neutrons exchange places.

In fact, Administratium’s mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization causes some morons to become neutrons forming isodopes.

This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientists to speculate that Administratium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as
“Critical Morass.”

You will know it when you see it.

Nuclear Powered

It’s the tail. It wags and wags and wags….We have a new rating for Cali, it is similar to the quarterback rating of touchdowns over interceptions.

Doggie Bonus = (cute girls drawn over) / (accidents in the house)

So far Cali is pretty far below 1, but she’s on the board!

Oh Wow

What reading 3 books about Labrador Retrievers doesn’t tell you is that reading the body language of dogs is very tough. It’s 9 o’clock, and we’ve had Cali for 6 hours. I slept on the floor with her for a good hour of it, then she had her first little accident. She’s been taken outside 3 times, with Sara currently outside on the fourth….but somehow she seems to like our floors rather than the outside area. Accident count: 2, the second was minutes after she came inside again….doh!

To be fair, Cali is the cutest thing we’ve ever seen.

Introducing Cali

Tomorrow Sara and I are driving out to Shirley, Long Island and picking up Cali. She’s a black Labrador Retriever puppy about 7 1/2 weeks old. Her official B-Day is February 27th. She’ll get her own hexagon on the buzolich.com website….kinda like the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but different. Her page will have lots of pictures of her and a blog of my attempts to control pure energy. Do you have any good dog training tips? Please post them!

Putt Putt

An 18 is possible.Not going to mention the guy that suggested this game as a diversion from working, but this is really addicting. Try a game or two of Miniputt. The first one is free….

Leader Board:
KJB – 27
TMB – 28
ARH – 29

Kendall answered the challenge and responded with a vigor.
Check out this scorecard: 1,1,1,1,1,2,1,2,2,2,2,1,1,1,2,1,2,3 = 27

Editor’s Note: This game has been mastered. Every hole has been one putted.
