I won't say anything bad about the man who has my laptop. Considering he may have all my files. He may be reading my blog, looking at my pictures (!), rocking out to my music in his double-wide at the trailer park across town. I will say nothing at all about his huge glasses, white hair, trembling hands, that thing on his lip. Or the trailer park (albeit a clean one) Mac service office where he lives.
Heck of a nice guy. And I have nothing but confidence in him and his ability to recover my data, music and picture (!) files and install my new hard drive and new OS. He's only had the bloody thing (my baby! my office!) for 4 days now.
I will go drop off my absentee ballot now. I don't like voting in person for some reason (lazy) and even though the Diebold machines haven't reached my rural neck of the woods yet, for some reason I trust paper more.
I don't know why, it's not like they can run a simple program to hack election results. Check out this video (I'd embed it, but my husband's browser, whine whine whine . . .)
It's short and it consists of a hacker testifying how he was paid to write such a program and tip any election result 51-49 for which ever side pays. Strongly suggesting this was done in Ohio a few years ago.
And don't forget, y'all, every time you vote Republican, God kills a kitten! (I know I've posted this picture before, but Shephard reminded me of it again and really, does it ever get old?)
