Britannica Goes After Wikipedia and Google

cnf Site design (385 comments)

I have tried using the Britannica site a few times in the past, and I just tried again now. It isn't very good, is it? I mean sure maybe it's all accurate, but on Wikipedia I find what I am looking for within a few minutes, mostly within seconds. Once you get there, the pages are relatively easy to read.

Go on, have a look at Tell me what you think... What do you think most non-geeks will go back to, Wikipedia or Britannica?

Mozilla SSL Policy Considered Bad For the Web

cnf Free Cert Signers etc (897 comments)

Very expensive, yes.

I am really not a fan of firefox, but this it does right. The original author did not put in a lot of research nor a lot of thought.

if I could save time in a bottle
the first thing that I'd like to do
is to save every day 'til eternity passes away
just to spend them with you
if I could make days last forever
if words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then
again I would spend them with you

but there never seems to be enough time to do the
things you want once you find them
I've looked around enough to know that
you're the one I want to go through time with

if I had a box just for wishes
and dreams that had never come true
the box would be empty except for the memories
of how they were answered by you

but there never seems to be enough time to do the
things you want once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
that you're the one I want to go through time with

funny how people open their mouth without thinking/reading/informing themselves

funny how people just "assume" things

funny how people always asume there is a fire when they see smoke ...

as long as u havent actually *seen* a fire, there is NO fire, just the potential of one.

now, me, i like playing devils advocate ...

people see smoke, and start shouting "fire!!", i'll totally and utterly stick to the "there is no fire whatsoever" story

why ?

2 reasons:
1) someone has to
2) i like playing games with people :-)

think, people, if u see something that looks like a rock, that doesnt mean it actually IS a rock, just something that looks like, and *might be* a rock.

if u want to make the claim that it IS a rock, investigate 1st pls

thank u ^_^
