toothpaste for dinner

unfortunately, most times I just fix the computer. Why does everyone think that because I work in IT and am good with computers, it necessarily means I want to fix them all the time, especially when IT’S YOUR OWN STUPID FAULT YOUR COMPUTER IS F***KED UP ANYWAY!*

* I mean who told you to click that link while browsing in Internet Explorer? Didn’t I install Firefox for you the last time I was here?

ps. I like fixing computers, just not under circumstances described above!

Arthur C. Clarke – The Final Odyssey

March 19th, 2008

Arthur C. Clarke died today at his home in Sri Lanka aged 90. A gifted visionary, he believed that “At the present rate of progress, it is almost impossible to imagine any technical feat that cannot be achieved – if it can be achieved at all – within the next few hundred years.”

For those who haven’t read it yet, my favourite Clarke has to be Childhood’s End. Read it.
