Only the l0s3rs didn’t play with LEGOS growing up. Slashdot has this story about them, what makes this post worthy is the addition that Hemos puts on about building cities and then destroying them … ah fond memories. It make me want to build stuff out of LEGOS again.

Building a dream machine
A recent article on slashdot gave a link to CmdrTaco’s MAME Box. So what is a MAME box? Well in a nutshell it’s an arcade machine that runs an emulator on a PC allowing you to play thousands of games from ONE arcade machine. So I’ve been doing my research and I’m about ready to start buying the pieces. If you are interested in starting out I’d recommend checking out this search on Google. Here is the start of my MAME box page.
Here is an interesting story about drug trafficers using bar codes to label drugs. As of now it’s uncertain whether or not it’s used for anything or is a joke of some sort.
Code Red again
I noticed an article over at debris.com about the Code Red virus and decided to check my logs. 377 requests have been made to my server for by boxes administered by idiots. I might install Matt’s warning generator.
I’ve been doing some work on my Fraternity‘s website. You can learn more about the Alpha Theta chapter here.
I consider myself a fairly in tune when it comes to business etiquette. However, I’m kind of old school in that I think that sometimes you can’t merely be “fuzzy-wuzzy” with business partners. Sometimes, like in most parts of life, you need to knock a few heads around and yell a little bit. Maybe I’m just an old soul … but I don’t care if people like me as long as the job gets done and the bottom line is looking good at the end of the day. I missed the business class that says your supposed to like who you work with.
I had a GREAT time in Washington DC. Brian Dye and I drove about 8 hours down there to spend the weekend at the Sigma Tau Gamma National Conclave. We spent most of our time in meetings trying to resolve chapter debt. We also spent a lot of time “socializing” in the local bars and checking out the sites DC had to offer. Pics are coming.
Many people ask me where I get all my geeky t-shirts. It has been a long time goal of mine to wear t-shirts that show off my inner geek. To those of you who wish to purchase some check out Copyleft (the oldest and my personal favorite) and Think Geek (another cool geek store). Tell them miester sent you.
When is Iraq going to learn that you can’t shoot at US/British planes patrolling the no-fly zones that were set up after we kicked their asses. Give it up. Of course, I’m of the school that thinks we should have taken out Sadam when we had the chance (brings up too many memories of another dictator we ignored).
I’m finally getting out of Ypsi, even if it’s only for a short weekend. I’ll be heading to Washington, DC for the Sig Tau National Conclave. It should be a good time!
