How to configure your facebook account…

23 11 2007

I found this great blog posting that describes how to setup your security settings on Facebook.  Even better it shows you how to block invites from applications so you don’t get bombarded with 50,000 $#(*$# invites to pirates, ninjas or whatever other annoying app seems to be the flavour of the month (I have to confess a tendancy to send invites for some apps that give you a bonus for doing this <shame>).

Similarities between Brits & Canadians…

22 11 2007

My brother came up last weekend to visit for my birthday.  We went to see the Flames beat the Oilers at Rexal and the game was awesome.  Sitting 3rd row by the Oilers bench was fun too 🙂

Anyway.  We were talking about ways he could get to his office and around Edmonton (he manages the pre-press for Calgary and Edmonton for a printing company) and I found myself giving him directions using the locations of Tim Hortons as landmarks… this reminds me to how when I lived in England one used to give directions using pubs as landmarks….

The differences are stark too sometimes.  For example, our Canadian love of hockey and our hockey supporters are clearly more sophisticated than footy supporters.  Rather than having the fans fight each other before/after/during the match we have our hockey players do it for us on the ice while we sit back and enjoy the game.  A much better way to incorporate violence into sport…

Kind of funny….





Politcal Corrrectness Gone Mad… again…

A friend of mine sent this link around.  It’s pretty unbelivable really… I am not sure what is wrong with some people these days.

John Scalzi’s Review on the Creationist Museum

14 11 2007

Here is an entertaining review of a creationism museum (This is not the one that recently opened up it’s doors around Red Deer Alberta, this one is located in the States).

I shamelessly ripped this link off from a friend’s blog (The Doom that came to Cowtown, you can see his link the blogroll).  Always cite your refrences 🙂

Apparantly T-Rexes were vegetarians for a period of time.

Follow the following link to see John Scalzi’s review on the creationist museum: http://scalzi.com/whatever/?p=121

To be fair, the museum itself has a web page you can find at:  http://www.creationmuseum.org/about
