We're gonna bring you the power!

Saints be praised, it's finally happened!

Time to get a NetFlix subscription, I think.

Why is Perl's support for character encodings other than UTF-8 so terrible?  Granted that UTF-8 is the best way to handle things, 95% of the real world usage of multi-byte character sets is is some encoding other that UTF-8.

I loved that valentine that webwench posted in the hole yesterday.  I think I should post a personal ad that basically consists of that valentine plus the sentence "I'm looking for a girl who would laugh as hard at this as I did."

not a peep from my offensive humor loving friends.  The same folks who were hysterical laughing at my "Mohammad Atta is my co-pilot" bumper sticker idea.

Despite all that.....

I ended up spitting soda through my nose when I saw the valentine!

Unfortunately for you/us, I'm taken.  However, if my situation were to change, I'll let you know.  I've been reading your diary and I can't get over the fact that there is a geek out there who loves to sing (and sounds like is good at it). 

I'll keep you posted.  ;)

Hey You Guys! by BlueOregon (4.00 / 1) #6 Wed Feb 15, 2006 at 11:02:10 AM EST

Actually, what I would love is 3-2-1 Contact on DVD ... especially the first couple seasons (80-82?). I still recall several episodes with fondness --

I also caught the last of ZOOM in the late late 70s and loved it.

All those shows that came on before and after Sesame Street in the afternoons on Square One.
