I was just glancing through my spam filter. Some of the senders have great names, like ARCHIBALD CERVANTES. I really hope nobody actually has that name, because they'd totally pop up on google now.

Print Story ATTENTION JULIE BECKMANN INFIDEL:

...and the rest of all you Googlies: Turn off that fucking geotracking already! When I go to Prague and need to use your site, I can't fucking find anything! I don't speak Czech and I don't know which fucking link is the one which will give me your goddamned page in English!

Geotracking is stupid. That's why most of us gave up on it a decade ago, about three and a half weeks after we figured out how to do it with some JavaScript and cgi. That's what the fuck cookies are for. If I don't have a cookie, default to the goddamned locale for the TLD I entered in my browser. If I wanted to see the results from google.de or google.co.uk I would've typed them -- and not google.com -- into the fucking browser. Do you have any idea how many fucking expats there are in this country? Stupid question; of course you don't or you wouldn't do this.

The US wireless industry has made for some interesting news lately.

The big story lately is Google's (perceived) entrance into the wireless network business. They don't have a network yet, but they're making lots of motions that indicate that they might have one eventually... sometime...

HuSi is a hotbed of bigotry.
