Spider-Man on Chat Rooms

by Joey deVilla on October 29, 2009

Spider-Man: "I get into costume and boom, I'm the snarky wise-guy. Anonymity's liberating. There should be rooms where people could go to chat using fake identities. They'd spend hours being jerks to each other."

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

by Joey deVilla on October 12, 2009

Comic featuring a man standing in an office on a desk with his pants pulled down, holding up a monitor and yelling "Thank you, internet!"

It’s the second Monday in October, which means it’s Canadian Thanksgiving (or in French, Jour de l’Action de grâce)! I’d like to wish you a safe and happy holiday and remind you to think of what you’re thankful for.

Get their asses kicked by Bruce, a’ight?

Even though this organization gives me a nice paycheque every two weeks for evangelizing:

…I still found today’s xkcd comic on the Windows 7 beta release funny:

The alt text for the comic does say "Disclaimer: I have not actually tried the beta yet.  I hear it’s quite pleasant and hardly Hitler-y at all."

By the bye, don’t quote me on this but I hear tell that the next Ubuntu release will do nothing but show Richard Stallman and Eric Raymond forming a sexy “Eiffel Tower” (see this post for an explanation) with Linus Torvalds in the middle. I’m just sayin’.
