Jumping the Shark
Now here is a concept I can't get enough of a man and his monkey! I am waiting for the TBS monkey movie short using a human as the part of the monkey.
Jumping the Shark is that point in a television series when you know, you just know, the series has peaked and can only go down from there. The reference is from the time the Fonz jumped over a shark tank on “Happy Days.”
FYI, WKRP in Cincinnati never jumped the shark.
“There they go again, looking for alklghlkjhslkj.kljhqleuyoqivmqkjuht.hjeh.com again!”
It was bad enough when you could tunnel TCP/IP over SMTP, but now it seems you can tunnel TCP/IP over DNS.
When will it ever end?
“Look Ma! No wires!”
Technocrat has an article about wireless networks and the ISPs that are implementing them. consume.net, The Eugene Free Community Network, SFLan, and SeattleWireless are a few of the ISPs in the States working on providing this technology.
And MIT is working on The Grid Ad Hoc Mobile Networking Protocol to help route all this new wireless technology.
I just wished South Florida wasn't so darned flat! It's hard to get wireless networks going with a lack of hills (or mountains) and tall buildings.
The Great Worm Wizard
This person is part of the group working on The Grid Ad Hoc Mobile Networking Protocol. Could this be the rtm?
If you don't know who rtm is, then you obviously don't know your Internet History.
It's the End Of The World As I Know It
“Hey, kid!” the voice on the other end of the phone said. “How are you doing?” It's Dad. His timing is getting better. It's midnight my time and I'm wide awake. Good thing Dad lives out in California—it's only 9:00 pm there.
“I'm fine. How are you?”
“Can't complain. Hey, I've got a question for you,” he said. “What's your email address?”
The universe suddenly turned ninety degrees on me. Dad. My Dad. My Dad who hates computers and will have nothing to do with them, asking me for my email address.
Next thing you know, a coke head will be running for President.
Hey, wait a minute …
