Third world? That explains the horrible sizing.

I read that as 'horrible sneezing'.

But perhaps it does ... *strokes chin*

lol! Did you not try it on at the store?

guys don't do that. maybe for pants. (I try on pants because I usually get cheap ones, and the quality control for sizing isn't really there. I've bought labelled-smaller that fit, and labelled-larger that don't.) Or Shoes. I find it near impossible to get shoes that fit right. But I've never tried on a shirt at the store.

Boom Boom Mancini has a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, along with his friend and fellow Youngstown OH native, Al Bundy!
Just thought that was neat.

Heard a lovely story over the weekend about the cheapness of my grandmother's sister. Apparently she kept clothes forever, and being a well endowed woman she had problems with certain areas wearing through faster than others. Her elegant solution to this problem was to regularly sew circular patches over the boobs on all her dresses/blouses as they wore thin - frequently from entirely different material. Needless to say, she became well known about town as an arbiter of taste and high fashion.

God, I come from classy stock.

I love Conservapedia, even if it's not as collectible as Chick Tracts.

"Damn you, glossy magazine!"

I think "Scott Bakula" is a pretty awesome name.

Speaking of Chick Tracts, God hates socialism, gun control, and hippies. You'd almost think this tract wasn't "Copyright 2010 by Jack T. Chick LLC."

Watching David Hasselhoff's roast... Seth MacFarlane has the best voice in the history of television. I mean, it's like it's been photoshopped.

Sun used to own Java and a little thing called Solaris, a highly advanced server/workstation Unix derivative which they branched into a community-driven version called OpenSolaris that had input from the user/developer community (as you may guess) and (also as you may have guessed) was released as open source. This is where the main development of the commercial branch took place lately. They also owned the official version of MySQL, an immensely popular piece of database software. Oh, and let's not forget everyone's favorite no-cost Office replacement, OpenOffice.org. Lately, Sun had been doing a lot to establish their open source cred and attract developers to their products.

Oracle bought Sun in April 2009.

Oracle is now suing Google for patent violations in Android (it uses a custom Java-like VM and apps are developed primarily with Java). They are ceasing development of OpenSolaris, so all future development will go on behind closed doors under the commercial Solaris branch and community contributions may not be welcome. A plugin-in that lets MS Office use the ODF file format for OpenOffice that used to be free under Sun? $90 a pop with a 100 license minimum.
The Android thing is huge, it could cripple Google's OS as a viable competitor with the iPhone and (soon to be released) Windows Phone 7. Closing off Solaris development isn't quite so devastating, except that coming right on the heels of the Google suit is may have a chilling effect on people's faith in Oracle's commitment to valuable FOSS projects.
Now, there's a lot more they could have done to live up to the hype but they sure do seem hell-bent on validating the fears of the open source Chicken Littles that were voiced in a cacophonous chorus once the buyout was announced last year. Everywhere I look about these things I see programmers and devs mulling over things bitterly, grumbling, perhaps announcing the impending doom of Solaris as platform, Java as a programming language and warning others to avoid anything with the Oracle logo. Knee-jerk? Definitely. Still, Oracle is a much more... "aggressive" company than Sun was towards the end. Wonder if I should be keeping a close eye on my copy of OpenOffice.org.
