School is back

I have been busy with several other projects of late, and with life in general this blog has been 'dryer' then normal. It will stay this way for the near future. I start school today as a full time MTSU student, and all I have to say is "God help my teachers".

Blogging will stay at the level it is at, but I plan on putting most of my efforts into schooling and the local blog I write fore.

Politics this year will be dang interesting.

Ick! Gay livers!

A Canadian rule has placed homosexuals (or whatever the latest politically correct term is) in a rather bad group.
The restrictions, which also cover drug addicts, prisoners, prostitutes and people who have had tattoos or body piercings in the last 12 months using shared needles, came into effect last month.
Now this group is the ones who CANNOT donate organs for transplant.

Yep. Your daughter needs a liver or something. Well screw her, because no one would want a gay liver according to the Canadian government.

This is what happens when the government controls things. You're labelled, and tagged. I understand the fear of 'bugs', but modern testing lowers the risk to the point that crossing the street might be more dangerous.

God I hate government control so f'ing much.

Getting old and bad webpages

when someone creates a webpage they like to test it against the main web browsers. Opera, Firefox, and Explorer. They tweak it till they make it so all can see it.

I have found in the last month or so a major item that many do not seem to check. Font size. I reset the default setting for my computers to display font sizes from the standard 'medium' to 'large'. My eyes are needing the extra size for comfort.

The problem is that a lot of websites now have text over running text, and text shoving boxes over other items. To the point that some pages are totally unreadable. It is hard to figure out what a blog post, or newspaper article says when the left two inches of a five inch wide article is covered by an amazon/google/adsense ad.

Just a hurdle for an older guy on the web I guess.
