More tests...

I'm switching my bog over to MoveableType 3.0 (beta) and it's still a work in progress. (Both MT and my knowledge of the upgrade...) so stay tuned. Comments don't seem to be functioning very well at the moment.

Testing 1 2 3.

Yes, I am just testing.

Windows Re-Install Issues... on in a series.

My copy of windows on my PC seems to have gotten corrupted. So I did a repair/install on it from my original CD. What's fun is I get the following error with unregmp2.exe during compnent registration "The procedure entry point GetIUMS could not be located in the dynamic link library msdart.dll" and my only option is OK. Click OK. It shows up again. According to mcse.ms, the solution is to click the OK button about 80 times. Seriously. The same error box comes up and you're supposed to click it 80+ times.

Don't ask.. don't tell... don't look.

If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there, does it make a noise? I guess if you don't see the coffins of U.S. soldiers who died in Iraq, did they not die? The Memory Hole seems to be bucking the government, regardless.

More on Mandy Berwick.

Apparently, the Fox Trot book is out with the previously published Mandy Berwick Google reference. Am I a mutant or what?

I signed up on Technorati tonight. It's been a while since I've explore the blog-technology landscape so this was my first venture back in. I even claimed this blog. Pretty cool. Check it out. You link to me. I'll link to you. We'll do a lunch.

Steve wrote about Ear Candling.

Over at Off on a Tangent, Steve wrote about an ear candling session. But luckily, one of his readers referred to a classic from Cecil Adams's Straight Dope. About once every 6-8 months, if I don't get my ear wax cleared out, I go deaf. Those hoping that sticking a lit candle in your ear would solve your problem are, unfortunetly, going to have to find another method. So far, the only thing that has ever worked for me is having the doc flush a steady stream of warm water in there and the poof, I can hear!

Ok, I'm back.

Due to the overwhelming emails, I am back. Tonight's topic: Folding@Home. What is it? What does Folding@Home do? Folding@Home is a distributed computing project which studies protein folding, misfolding, aggregation, and related diseases. We use novel computational methods and large scale distributed computing, to simulate timescales thousands to millions of times longer than previously achieved. This has allowed us to simulate folding for the first time, and to now direct our approach to examine folding related disease. Basically, it uses your computer when you're not using it and helps scientists discover more about proteins and how to possibly cure diseases or prevent them in the first place. Are you a Joshua? Join the JoshuaFolding@Home team! It's #36147 when you signup. (oops... I had the team # wrong!) Download the software!.

Giving it up.

I clearly don't have the readership to support this blog anymore. Joshua.com is suspended immediately.
