I don’t know if I’m alone here, but I’m not the least bit excited about Windows Vista. I saw Bill Gates’ interview on the Daly Show with Jon Stewart (“What does the F12 button do?”), and it really didn’t make me want to go out and buy Vista. Furthermore these rumors I hear of DRM are even more discouraging. What I’d really like is OS X.

I think I’ve lost hope in Microsoft. (Although IE7 isn’t completely terrible. On the other hand it did take about 5 years to fix IE6…)

How many people like Grissom’s replacement on CSI? I think he’s OK, but there’s no one quite like Grissom.

I don’t know if it’s still there, but a couple weeks ago there was a Gay.com Billboard (“Are you?”) on one side of the Bay Bridge on-ramp, and a billboard congratulating Nancy Pelosi on the other.*

I wonder how many conservatives’ heads burst into flames upon seeing that.

*Update: The billboard is no longer there.
