Open Source, Open Legs

OpensourceIt’s not very often that I talk about the nerdier aspects of my personality. But this week has had some pretty interesting developments.

Most importantly was the release of the Flock Social Web-Browser (Available for Mac, Linux, and Windows). It’s an interesting project in which the developers have built upon the already fantastic Open Source Firefox web-browser and added such things as Del.icio.us, Flickr, and Blogging integration. The interesting part is that WordPress (the thing that makes Flashcube.org go) is offering free accounts to all those who try out Flock. All of this wrapped up in a pretty slick package. Plus, one of my favourite Firefox extensions works with it out of the box.

It’s still a alpha release so not all features are there but it will be interesting to follow its development over the next few months. It still lacks things like Firefox bookmark import but it is on the to-do list.

One last thing, here’s an interesting article found in the principles of Open Source Software are applied to sexuality. Interesting read. And for those who’ve read so far. Thank you.

Flashcube-a-licious

PumpkincarvingMy Halloween costume is official sorted. The last pieces having been picked up last evening. So in the spirit why don’t you carve a pumpkin or something? I tried to and only came up with the monstrosity to the right. Okay, it’s not that bad but really how much fun can carving a face into a large vegetable really be? Probably not nearly as much fun as this.

Rubber Baby Mother Fuckers

ThinginrubberQuick!!! The link!! It’s Thing In Rubbers. Like me, both gross and fascinating.

Speaking of me, my Richie Tenenbaum costume this weekend better be a hit or else…. or else some asshole will get it across the grill with my tennis racket.

It should be good, I mean I’m growing the beard for the fucking thing. Something I’ve never done before and possibly ever again. I like my clean-shaven face better as does the lady. She even offered to help me shave the fucking thing off on Sunday morning but I had to decline because shaving hurts especially when it means dragging a three-month-old dull blade acrross your face. The pain means it’s working.

Okay fuckers, I put a nice link on the left-hand column urging you to make your presence known on a world map and only three shitheads (myself included) have decided to do it. I’m not asking for a bouquet, a hot meal, or a high-five. Just a few moments of your precious time. Dammit!!! Don’t make throw a fucking tantrum. And remember, we appreciate all readers of Flashcube.org and were I not in a meaningful, fulfilling, wonderful relationship I may considerer having a membership drive so to speak. But seeing as I’m already snatched up, you’re fucked. With that, I love you all. Mwmmahh!!!

Feelin’ Groovy

MoooooogFirst things first. I fucking hate Flash. I find it annoying and intrusive and indicative to shitty web design. Okay, now that’s out of the way. Visit this nice gallery of women twiddling knobs while you twiddle yours. Sure the gallery is in Flash but it gets the point across. Whine, whine, whine.

Frappr

FrapprthingThe road to stardom can be a lonely one. It’s nice to know that you’ve some friends along the way. Stop!!!!! Let me rephrase that and add a dash of truth to the last statement. I want to know who likes me and Show me where they’re coming from. Sure, I could put on my geek hat and look at my logs but I don’t want to. Besides, I already watched code compile on my computer via an ssh session earlier today because the afternoon was a bit slow at work.

You don’t have to like me or even know me when you put yourself on the map. Most people think I’m a cockass and you’re in a position to help confirm or deny that. If not for fun then for the sake of killing a minute or two. Go!!!!
