Tuesday Tingling Tibia

Grammer God!Your afternoon tech news, sir or madam. (And getting later every day).
Spirit has concluded its 90th day on Mars – mission accomplished.

I am a grammar God!

  1. Apple’s web site has lost its customers’ respect. The Customer Respect Group’s Spring 2004 survey scored Apple’s site highly for Simplicity and Transparency but the company received sub-par marks in Responsiveness, Attitude, and Principles. Hewlett-Packard and Science Applications International Corp. were #1 on the list followed by IBM, Xerox, Microsoft, Dell, and Sun. Apple beat out Silicon Graphics and Gateway, though. I’ll tell you what the problem is. Apple finally stopped selling Hypercard. Of course it hadn’t updated the program in over six years.

  2. There was an unprecedented number of virus alerts in the first quarter of this year. According to Trend Micro, the 232 alerts it issued between January and March was an increase of 600% over this time last year.
  3. The phone companies are preparing to increase DSL charges by assessing “regulatory fees” starting next month. The fees, typically 10% of the DSL charge, will pay for Universal Lifeline Service and other government requirements. Watch your bill.
  4. We’re number one! The San Francisco Bay Area has edged out Portland as the most wireless wired city in the US. The Intel survey counts the number of wireless access points and the number of wireless users. Dallas-Fort Worth has the best airport wireless access.

  1. Hey Leo,
    I started my own Moblog! check it out at rlynch.textamerica.com — not much up there yet but it’s a start — you inspired me to create one!
    I wish Boston had all that WiFi coverage like SF does… We feel left out!
    see you in the chat on saturday!

  2. I’m looking for a GLOBAL wi-fi internet access… anyone have a good suggestion of a product? It’s gotta be at speeds of about 512KB or higher — moderately priced — a good usage rate (if not unlimited access) and can be received from major areas of the globe (far east – Taiwan, especially).

  3. hehe, Grammar God(dess) here, too. I thank my wonderful early education and my compulsive mother and grandmother for drilling those rules into my head.

  4. I done gotten Grammar God! 🙂
    One note. It may be true that several of us can obtain the status of GRAMMAR GOD.
    However, I imagine, that if we were asked to speak on television or radio with the same eloquence which we have demonstrated on the quizilla web site we would be found lacking. That’s why Leo wins! He is a communicator!
    You are a GRAMMAR GOD!
    If your mission in life is not already topreserve the English tongue, it should be.Congratulations and thank you!
    How grammatically sound are you? brought to you by Quizilla

  5. i now hate tech tv!!!!! no leo i wont watch it with out leo he taught me all ii know about computers before i saw him on tv i never turned a pc on before now i build some kick but systems

  6. I is a Grammar God me too! The real question Leo, is what bodily fluid you are? I don’t know if anyone took the other test on the site, but I am, apparently, Urine! Funny, since I have brown eyes, my wife always tells me I’m full of something else!

  7. If you don’t get my above post. The picture there is “god” from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)

  8. I would attribute the jump in virus alerts to the authors of Netsky, Bagle, and MyDoom, and the dozens of variants. Tot heir credit, they will soon answer my one nagging question. What happens after variant z?

  9. I received grammar god status. W00t! It’s amusing to note the possible results.
    FYI. I was having problems with NetNewsWire 1.0.6 updating your feed. Last update was April 1. Changing /tsn/ to /tlr/ in the RSS address fixed it.

  10. As, and from this moment on, I suspected, never should have I doubted it, I, being the person writing this message, am, as you all now should know, a, being the indefinite article, grammar, being the subject of the quiz, god!
    That sentence got a Flesh-Kincaid grade level of 12.

  11. Also a Grammar god… Though since I have a degree in English and my mother is an English professor, who could have expected less…
    Actually, I was scared I would come out an utter moron. Those questions were hard!

  12. Take the Quizilla Grammar God quiz and watch Sure-Seek load into your Windows operating system. That’s spyware and if you have a spyware detector, you can clean up after your fun. But if you don’t, Google for “grammar god spyware” and read how others have sorted themselves. Or click on any one of the seven sponsored spyware links and be sorted.
    Happy spyware strikes in fun ways.
