Then The Screen Goes Black

When I lived in Boston's North End in the early to mid 90's there were little signs every where you looked. They were cheaply printed about the size of a bumper sticker. They were taped to lamp posts or stuck in the corner of the windows of every Italian owned business. They read "Free Joseph Salvati!"

Joe Salvati was a minor criminal thug who got swept into jail for a crime he didn't commit. Despite being a small time hood, his neighborhood rallied around him when the FBI railroaded him into prison for a crime he didn't commit. 20 years later there were still North Enders who felt outrage over the FBI's obvious miscarriage of justice.

But the damage was done. Not just to Salvati, Limone, Tameleo and Greco. They were the most visibly injured by the FBI. The real damage is to the citizens of the city who equate the FBI with injustice and allow organized crime to flourish. How many mob hits go unsolved because the locals fear organized criminals less then they feel spite for corrupt law enforcement.

And the damage is going to hit me and you. It's the government that will pay 101 million dollars to a bunch of thugs and their families. It's going to come out of our taxes.

Barney Hates Me

This is the reason why.

Her name is Princess Little Sheba. She's 9 weeks old.

Things I Love

iSquint for converting avi, mp4 and wmv files to an iPhone viewable format.

HandBrake for converting (format shifting) my DVD collection to QuickTime files so I can watch them on my iPhone.

320x480 or 480x320 depending on how you hold it is the magic setting to optimize your videos for the 3 1/2 inch monitor.

Also in HandBrake, I notice no flicker down converting to 24 frames per second and unless you're watching something with subtitles 300mb file size looks as good as larger files. There's no need to waste valuable real estate on my puny 4 gig which is really 3.64 gigs.

Been A While

Surgery went well. I chose general anesthesia because I thought I'd be bored with just a local. The doctor attached a syringe to my IV and the next thing I remember is waking up with a cast on my leg.

After horrifying my family with the amount of painkillers I was taking on Saturday I'm not taking them anymore. I took some last night to fall asleep but havent had any since. My ankle is sore but not unbearable. The worse is, I believe over.

I'm on crutches and my arms and right leg are sore from carrying my weight.

I don't have buyers remorse for my iPhone but I am getting annoyed with Safari crashes.

Tonight I'm going to go to trivia over at O'neils in Salem.

Tomorrow I'm going to sit in a hammock.

The new iPhone finally got set up after waiting all night for an email that was never going to come. Lisa called AT$T a couple times and basically got blown off each time. So I called. Two and a half hours and 3 service reps and a whole lot of swearing is what it took to activate my and Lisa's phones.

Yes we both got iPhones. Lisa needed a new battery for her phone and my phone was a piece of crap. We were due for new phones anyway and even though we shouldn't have for so many reasons we got our one treat for the summer.

I love it.

On another topic also about me. Tomorrow I'm getting surgery on my ankle. I will be in a cast for 2 months. Don't expect much out of me this summer. I'll probably be able to go out and sit places but no manual clutch driving for me. Expect to pick me up or wait until my wife is free to drive me around if you want to hang out.

I would be telling you how cool my new iPhone is right now but until AT$T gets off their fuckin ass and activates it for me the thing is nothing more then a paperweight. It is useless until the old cingular lets you use it.

But Will My Tinfoil Hat Protect Me From The CIA?

Good news for the government and rapists. (I know there's little difference.) Now we can erase memories like in some bad science fiction movie. This is why I was never really comfortable in grad school. They say 'blah blah blah cure alzheimer's blah blah blah' but what they really fund is increased social control and brainwashing technique.

Once I put this in the drinking water everyone will forget about that stolen election and happily serve up their children to die in my illegal war. It's the perfect plan!
