peeing @Saturday, August 19, 2000 - 20:55:57 - tu
I never thought peeing would feel so good. I had a great time a this party. I was walking home
only a few miles. Of course all this walking makes the beer want to exit. I made it here to work
which is about halfway home. I have never felt such relief, not even in a dream nothing feels so
good a good pee and an empty bladder.

Gore probably gave his best speech ever. I think he hit every key point. Its kinda funny I think
he will do better if he feels he is the underdog. I heard last night GW people don't want to
do the debate thing. I think the convention did a great job of energizing democrats and the country.
To bad the republicans are up to their same old dirty tricks, leaking stories on Clinton again.
I doubt anyone cares, and its ironic that Bush people condemned the leak, they dont want to
be burned on it.

Conventions Thoughts @Thursday, August 17, 2000 - 10:50:21 - tu
I have been watching most of the coverage the past couple days.
Does anyone know where I can d/l the gore video by Spike Jonz?
I saw only bits a pieces of it, it was a great look at Gore.
Did anyone else see The Rock walking around the convention?
I thought Leiberman gave a great speech, his wife aswell.
I enjoyed the 2 jokes and the comparsion between the state of texas and the country.
The trickledown ecomonics equals a bird eating the oats after the horse was
done with it, it was a riot.
I think that Leiberman is religous is really fustrating Republicans. If Bush used
that much religion in a speech, people be complaining he was from the religous right.
Tommy Lee Jones did a wonderful job describing his college roommate Al Gore.
Al Gore's daughter gave a indepth look at what a wonderful father she has.
I was surprised to hear her talking about abortion rights.
I read somewhere her sister is a comedy writer for Futurama.
Over and over people were saying it's not a popularity contest or a beauty pagent
people should decide on issues not personality.
The convention was more for energizing the party, I think it already has
accomplished that. I am very intrested in what Gore has to say tonight.
I think the debates are going to be a key issue. I just don't see Bush be up to the

X-Box Info @Monday, August 7, 2000 - 14:21:17 - tu
Married Guy sent me this cool story....
Several excited Xbox-related Web sites report that the Xbox Software
Development Kit (SDK), which went out to developers this month, reveals
previously unknown details about the machine. Chief among them is a
replacement for the Windows user interface (UI)--dubbed the Xbox
Dashboard--that offers a friendlier face to a "stripped" Windows 2000
OS. The Xbox will ship with support for both NTSC and PAL video formats
so that it can be used in any locale. Support for the Moving Pictures
Experts Group (MPEG) format is also included.
As for hardware, the Xbox will ship with both 56K modem and Ethernet
connectivity, hardware-accelerated DVD playback, and more. The digital
dashboard (which essentially provides a UI when no game is running)
will interface with the DVD player for DVD and CD playback and offer
access to features such as system configuration utilities, connectivity
utilities, and saved game management. Game controllers connect to the
system using standard USB ports, opening up the market for third-party
developers to develop gaming devices as well as keyboard and mouse
The Xbox game format is not compatible with Windows-based
applications, although its games are developed similarly using familiar
tools. Microsoft Direct3D will be the primary graphics API, as it is
for traditional desktop-based versions of Windows. But Xbox will not
use DirectShow for streaming media, instead incorporating proprietary
technology that takes better advantage of the underlying hardware.
Microsoft expects to ship the Xbox in late 2001.

The religious right is dead, I tell you, they ought to put out a story to the fire department

This is kinda odd. Robertson reported
his meeting claimed 5000 supporters, 2 other stories state 1,000. That a pretty large difference.
More Pat Robertson quotes.
"Five people can decide the destiny of unborn children".
"Five people can decide whether we can pray of not pray."
"It looks as if two or three of those unelected officials are getting ready
to retire or go on up the that great court in the sky"
"Our people have got to learn the professionalism the liberals unfortunately
always learned," says Falwell. "And when it comes down to the time to vote,
and to win, that we don't look for the perfect candidate but the one closest to
what we believe in."
