Aliens prefer Firefox

I have it from respectable sources that the various crop circles are proof that aliens exist, because many of the geometrical patterns that are made are too complicated for humans to make in such a short time span as is used it many cases. Logically, it follows that aliens prefer Firefox.

They probably havent discovered Opera yet, or the Opera logo is too simple to make a crop circle of – who would it impress? 😉

Can’t get it out of my mind…

Some tunes just get stuck in your mind, such as one by Finnish quartet Loituma: There is one now that is doing the rounds on the net in several variations. For your pleasure, I will provide you with the anime version of this catchy little tune. (Disclaimer: I take no responsibility if you can’t get it out of your head.)

The best browser company

I enjoy using Opera – and personally I think Opera ASA is the best browser company in the world. I’m sure not everyone agrees with me – but I don’t know who Rich Tennant, the cartoonist of the 5th wave have in mind…

Why you shouldn’t use Opera

Filed under:Browsers,Humour — posted by Svein Kåre on 28 April 2005 @ 02:10

You shouldn’t use Opera. Honestly – it’s an inferious browser, just ask any FFFB out there. It’s buggy and non standard and support too little CSS and shows a big, ugly ad in the interface and it’s not free. Oh, and it doesn’t have adblock.

Yup.

That about wraps it up.

Oh, OK. It isn’t that buggy. And maybe it does follow the standards. And CSS support is good, after all, maybe.

But it doesn’t support all the CSS that Firefox support – that surely must count for something. Not?

And it certainly isn’t Open Source – you must pay for it. Or well, live with the ads, those surely are annoying.

Oh, and it doesn’t have adblock!

Yup.

Not free, and not adblock. That decides it: Opera is an inferious browser. Better switch to Firefox right away.

Oh dear, this is just hilarious. And well, tragic too, I suppose. Calling 911 for this?

I’m sorry – you’re too popular…

…so we have to boot you.

It seems that science fiction, in the form of the Dragon Page radio talk show is more interesting than politics and/or whatever – so popular they unseated the #1 show, and that’s not acceptable; they don’t sell as much ad space, you know.

Strange but true, but it is possible to be too good for your own good…

Notifying an 8 week crime spree in advance

Filed under:Humour — posted by Svein Kåre on @ 21:53

A couple of students from Cornwall have publicly stated their criminal intent to break as many laws in the USA as possible this summer – such as riding a bike in a swimming pool or cursng on a crazy golf course in the state of California. In the land locked state of Utah they may even incur the wrath of Greenpeach in addition to the law enforcement, as they show some tough spirit and goes whale hunting.

There are many more laws to break – some may call them stupid laws, but nevertheless…

The quickest way between two cities…

…is not necessarily the route you’d think. At least according to MSN. The shortest route may be slightly different, too.

Still – I think I take my chances picking my own route. Why? Go to http://mappoint.msn.com/DirectionsFind.aspx and try the following travel routes:

Travel from Haugesund to Ã…lesundThe Daily Irrelevant for this. Virtual travelling turned fun 🙂

Not exactly Rocky…

It’s not actually Rocky (you know, with Sylvester Stallone) but still – there is something that reminds me of the film. Wonder why…

Penisland (Oooh – naughty me…)

OK, I have to say this at once: It’s not me who found this site – it was two girls.

Wonder what they were searching for when they found Penisland. Naughty girls…?
