So I was cleaning up files on one of my drives, and Finder presented me with this interesting quirk:

It got down to around -2000 before it finished. Looks like Finder owes me some files.. I’ll keep that in mind next time I have a paper to write!

I don’t get it

11:09:45 AM eric: but the printer is going to be attached to the linux machine
11:10:07 AM eric: and I want to print from a windows box
11:13:08 AM eric: looks like it will be another fun afternoon trying to get this worked out πŸ™‚
11:13:28 AM sam: or you could just share it from a Windows box πŸ˜›
11:13:49 AM eric: thats what we have now….but we want to be ableto password it and monitor wtuff
11:13:55 AM eric: and winblows sucks that that
11:14:13 AM sam: er… windows 2000 can do that just fine?
11:14:32 AM sam: use ACLs and auditing
11:14:35 AM eric: we only have xp….and maybe 2k3 server
11:14:46 AM sam: both of those are the same as 2000 πŸ˜›
11:14:46 AM eric: all that is above me πŸ™

So let me get this straight.. if this guy can’t handle clicking a few buttons in Windows to password protect his printer, how does he expect to be able to edit 3 cryptic configuration files in Linux to accomplish his task?

Wow

So GSN is showing a special supermodel edition of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the second fastest finger question was:

Put these phrases you might hear at a fashion shoot in alphabetical order:
A. Smile, sweety
B. That’s a rap
C. Pout like you mean it
D. some other phrase I forgot

Anyway.. yeah. Alphabetical order. You’d think this would be an easy one, right? Look at the first letters, put them in order, and then push the buttons on the keypad in the right order.

Well regis cuts to the results screen, which displays who got the question right, as well as how fast they did it (the fastest person gets to play, hence the term ‘fastest finger’). Anyway, they bring up the results screen and… only two out of the nine models got it right!

It was very sad.
