Illegal Dumping

In the current neighborhood newsletter, there is a big front page story about illegal dumping.
Illegal Dumping
IT IS ILLEGAL to put your trash out with your neighbor's - even if you see that they are only using one bag of their two bag limit! You can be fined for such actions. It is also illegal to put your trash in front of a residence that is empty of occupants. It is called ILLEGAL DUMPING. If you have a problem with others putting trash at your residence, or witness them putting it where it does not belong, please call the Illegal Dumping Hotline at 513-34858.
The first trash day that comes along after getting the news letter with that above story, guess what I have... that's right an extra bag of trash! Gonna call the hotline now and see what happens. Probably nothing.

"Isn't it ironic?

The Story:
Microsoft launches Windows XP campaign with ad made on Apple Mac

Tuesday, April 19, 2005 - 05:18 PM EST

Microsoft Corp. today kicked off a new global awareness campaign designed to "showcase how people can explore, enhance and pursue their passions with Windows XP and related technology." It's sort of an "ignore that Apple Mac OS X Tiger stuff" misdirection play.

Microsoft so thoughtfully posted one of the new "Start Something" ads that's part of the new global awareness campaign for Microsoft Windows XP and invited users to click the image for high-res version.

Well, various MacDailyNews readers clicked to view the image, downloaded it and checked the file's info by using iPhoto's "Get Info" and other methods to view the file's EXIF information which shows it was created with "Adobe Photoshop CS Macintosh."

As one reader wrote, "Isn't it ironic? A picture launching their big campaign designed to steal the thunder from Apple - was made on a Mac!"

Microsoft's press release can be found here.

The direct link to the "Start Something" ad (7.4MB) is here.

MacDailyNews Take: Hey, they asked us to "start something," so we did!
The Comment:

This is as pitiful as the Dan Rather CBS News "authentic memo's" about Bush! Ohhh, de shame, de shame!

I POOP on Redmond's campaign!

'Monday Night Football' moving to ESPN

The NFL's "Monday Night Football," a hallmark of television sports programming since the days of Howard Cosell, is leaving ABC after 35 years for ESPN...
...where poor people can no longer watch it. Remember the rule of thumb is, rich people have cable TV, poor people like me don't. Obvisouly MNF is now for rich eletist snobs and is now no longer my favorite TV show.

Mmm... Chewy!

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A high school student was arrested for biting off part of a classmate's ear during a fight that started after he was cut off while driving into the school's entrance.
Maybe he could get a job as an intern for Mike Tyson. They both seem to have the same taste in ears after all...

Sheriff Used Driving Records To Locate Critic: "ORLANDO, Fla. -- Orange County's sheriff may have broken the law when he used driver's license records to track down a woman who wrote a newspaper to criticize his staff's use of Taser stun guns and described him as too fat for basic police work, critics say."
Hmm... Better to not use that freedom of speach and press in FL. Don't comment on the Cops or they will look you up and send you a nasty letter to let you know not to use that freedom of speach and press... They are crazy in FL!!

So anyway...

...Gas jumped $.12 tonight. Now around $2.25 here. That's $.75 more than we were paying on base in Hawaii 10 years ago.

My street is 0.4 miles long. It has 21 no parking signs on the north side. I guess that's my city government at work.

I'm not dead yet!
