Its "find" doesn't work in form fields, which is a real drawback for, say, bloggers, people who use wikis, people who edit content online, etc. etc. The bug's been around since before version 1.0 in mid-2004, but no developer wants to work on it because the feedback form users is so active and hostile (people are really frustrated). So there's no one assigned to the bug, and it's not scheduled to be fixed until at least version 2.0 in another 6 months. This is one of the ugly secrets of the open-source world -- bugs get fixed, but only if it's something a particular person decides to fix, there's no way to get people assigned to fix the boring or ugly bugs, so they endure and endure.

Could this whole war thing just be a national low-blood-sugar slump?

A great article about a different kind of celebrity. Money quote: "There's probably no man alive who knows more about the Google algorithm than Matt Cutts. This is the most valuable corporate secret in existence today."

It's a parody of Subservient Chicken featuring a Donald Trump look-alike, built as (stick with me here) an ironic comment on product placement in reality TV shows, created by the writers of (yes, really, the writers of) reality tv programming who feel product placement is getting in the way of the plots of reality TV shows. Uh, yeah. Anyway, it's funny.

"As he barnstormed through Japan, South Korea and China, with a final stop in Mongolia still to come, Bush visited no museums, tried no restaurants, bought no souvenirs and made no effort to meet ordinary local people." What a loser.

It will likely bring in enough money in its opening weekend to buy about 91 million bean burritos at Taco Bell -- and that's just domestic bean burritos, because I don't know how much a bean burrito costs in, say France.

Except that it's not full of his comics, instead it's a philosophical exploration. But still quite good.

It's a series of 30 minute interviews with directors, actors, etc. being interviewed by good Variety reporters -- this isn't talk show style. They're talking in front of an audience who has just seen their film, so it's pretty insightful. Good stuff, especially if you like finding out about the process of filmmaking.

From this great opinion piece: "What do you think of your antivirus company, the one that didn't notice Sony's rootkit as it infected half a million computers? ... This is exactly the kind of thing we're paying those companies to detect -- especially because the rootkit was phoning home."

It happened in 2001, so don't get too excited.

Stunning. The U.S. is a menace to liberty.

Sunk to its watery resting place, with only a song, no movie, to commemorate it.

I've always considered the three-dot style newspaper columns to be early blogs, and Army was one of the last columnists in that style. Congrats to Alex Romanelli of the editor of the Variety Web site, for hooking Army on this new format, it's a quite a coup.

'Effective immediately' sez publisher. That brings the total number of daily and weekly newspapers down to 8, by my count, not including regional dailies. Was it a victim of Dose/24/Metro?

The default home page for IE for Mac is MSN.com. But MSN.com now causes IE for the Mac to crash -- I verified it myself. I've seen clueless, I've even been clueless, but this, my friends, is a new level of cluelessness.
