Ad nauseum

An invasive political hack
Is infecting your PC and Mac.
The malevolent geek
Gives the coding a tweak
And it’s Hillary vs. Barack!

Though an avid Mac fan and a user for years, the Savant finds this latest comparison to be an insult that both trivializes and fails to illuminate the value of both candidates. And it doesn’t do much for the Clinton or Obama campaigns either. A more apt comparison might be:

McCain: The candidate of the future, straight from the past

[NB: For those to young to remember the PET 2001. We assume you get the reference to Bush's pet and the year 2001.]

Is Obama a Mac and Clinton a PC?

Hey thanks for the great blog, I love this stuff. I don’t usually do much for Earth Day but with everyone going green these days, I thought I’d try to do my part.

I am trying to find easy, simple things I can do to help stop global warming (I don’t plan on buying a hybrid). Has anyone seen that is promoting their Earth Day (month) challenge, with the goal to get 1 million people to take their carbon footprint test in April?... I took the test, it was easy and only took me about 2 minutes and I am planning on lowering my score with some of their tips.

I am looking for more easy fun stuff to do. If you know of any other sites worth my time let me know.
