Below is a post from Slashdot... This is really good!!! I remember playing Wizard, Enchanter, Adept on my pcjr when I was 11 how bout you. BUT I STILL WANT A FAST MACHINE DAMMIT.

"I remember when I was in school, programming my Commodore 64, and the joy was in just how primitive it all was. Just typing in those BASIC commands, waiting while that tape drive chugged away - that was half the fun of it.

Nowadays, everything's instantaneous, and people don't realize the fun of waiting. This is a problem with our culture I think. Everything has to be so fast.

It's all fast food, fast cars, fast living, and it's not good for us.

It is no coincidence that in countries where they take things slowly that they have lower rates of heart disease, and lower incidence of stress-related industry.

Sure it's nice to have fast things every now and then, but I worry that people will forget the experience of waiting - the thrill of anticipation as that new game installs, the pause while the computer boots up, etc. It would be great to just go to a nice restaurant with nice slow service, and then to come back and use that Commodore 64 again.

All this speed means that people don't appreciate what they've got - they don't appreciate the joys of living - the call of birdsong, the flowers coming up in the spring - because they're too busy. And busy doing what? Busy doing things too damn quickly. Of course I'm not saying that progress is bad, but just that this is symptomatic of the ever faster pace of life; the way we don't speak to each other, the fact we take minutes for meals, and seconds for just talking. We should take the time out to enjoy life every now and then."

Windows XP's interface. It looks good.
Incomplete article on searching information on the web.
Let's dig the past a little bit:
Here are our rankings on hotbot.com
34 hits : Nicholas Wolff (nevertheless, most of the links are not related to the official phatphuck we all know.)
19 hits : Laurent Haug (mainly for an old tab I made and some Adidas Power Soccer hints I gave someone 5 years ago).
13 hits : Richard Joye. Eclectic list, ranging from Genealogy to fire dept.
5 hits : David Placci, with solid links like "Vehicle Routing Problems" and "3ème cycle romand de Recherche Opérationnelle, séminaire de printemps 2000"
5 hits : Christian Miccio with nice cool genetics related links.
1 hit : Jacques Ormond (because the guy has a street called after him, ch. Jacques-Ormond in Geneva)
1 hit : Serge Cavalier (about soaring)
1 hit : Laurent Bolli (about that boat he designed sometime ago)
0 hits : Alexandre Vettovaglia, John Staehli. You don't exist people. Get a life.
0 hits : Ivan Torreblanca

And on sear.ch
22 hits : Laurent Haug (from tmbm.com, webdo and a university link that hasn't been up for 4 years)
15 hits : Laurent Bolli. B&B, the boat, tmbm and pommeA.
13 hits : Christian Miccio. Cool links to a page with serial killer modelized in 3D faces.
7 hits : David Placci. Same comment, always linked to some scientific stuff.
7 hits : Nicholas Wolff (from tmbm.com AND "Design 3D par Systems de Particules", almost as good as Dave's routing problems).
5 hits : Richard Joye, our winner! This guy was his university's star. Period.
4 hits : Jacques Ormond.
1 hit : Serge Cavalier (about soaring)
0 hits : Alexandre Vettovaglia, John Staehli. Am I spelling Staehli right ?? Why aren't the 1994 indoor swiss doom championship pages up anymore ?

Comedy Central censored a recent episode of Robert Smigel's brilliantly depraved smuppet show TV Funhouse. The episode was called Porn for kids. Very funny.
LOL! You gotta love LEGO porn (click on the "series") and (a special for Mr. Moof) the Army men porn.
One of the coolest designer's site period. Amazing.
Think of the concept behind 5pm.co.uk. This is gonna change the way these people work. And add wireless capabilities into that and you get a whole new set of rules for these businesses. Interesting.
Smokers fly russian. I am always appreciative of efforts (whatever effort) aimed toward fighting the divine american rules.
We will soon all wish we were women! From the BBC: american scientists have discovered they can create orgasms in women at the touch of a button. Hell, what are we gonna be here for then ?

Abraham Maslow's hierarchical theory of human needs. In order, you have:
1.Physiological Needs
2.Safety Needs
3.Love, Affection and Belongingness Needs
4.Esteem needs
5.Self-actualization.
The theory got developped in the US in 1960, so there is no reference to Sexual needs. This scientist probably never met John (the Cheese spent such a short time in the academic world its no surprise anyway)...

I am very busy these days, sorry for not posting. Thanx Todd & others to keep on sending cool links. Here we go with some quick links:

  • Marc Andreessen, an interesting article about the netscape cofounder (now 28...).
  • Screenshots of IE6 from www.the-ctrl-alt-del.com (you gotta love this site's name)
  • A diagram showing Unix evolution and history (probably maintained by a serial killer, how can you do that kind of stuff during your free time?)
  • A fine blog, how can this guy write so many things every day by himself.
