Man with Gun spotted on Google Street View

Awesome. Gun, yep. Liquor, yep.

It's nice to live somewhere where you can do that, and not cause a panic in the sheeple.

Hang up on Yoomba

Thanks to AT, who reminded me of this snippet.

Rumor has it that Yoomba, the contact-list-spamming VoIP service was shut down this week. is down, FWIW. Sad to see that at best, highly impolite business practices survived this long.

Newsflash: Criminal Aliens apparently to be removed from US

I realize that this blog has strayed from technical stuff to politics, but unlike politics, most technology seems to achieve what it sets out to do.

So now, get this: apparently the homeland secretary wants criminal aliens out of the US.

As a law-abiding, legal alien, I am surprised to learn that this is not the case already. But then, they don't kick illegal aliens out, either. Why am I following this rabbit-warren of rules again?

On the other hand, there are these crazy rumors where you're held until the day after your visa expires and then escorted out of the country if they can't find any real crime to charge you with. I suspect you'd need to be extremely belligerent for anyone to bother.
