Why do smart cars remind me of penny racers?

November 25, 2008

I’m starting to see more and more smart cars on the road. However the darn things are so tiny that i’m constantly reminded of a penny racer. And it’s driving me crazy.

As you can see it’s pretty darn the same thing. I think the smart car guys ripped off this pic. lol. 

Ultimate Boot CD For Windows scores another knockout!

November 19, 2008

Yesterday Casey from CIG told me that his laptop was poping up windows like mad with spam websites. So I took a look at this laptop only to find out that it was infected.

I found this file on his pc jpwnw64j.exe and after looking it up on google saw the file was part of Zenosearch malware. After doing some more rooting around on his pc. I found that there was a program in the services called command.exe that I was denied access to. And would not remove itself.

In comes UBCD4WIN, time to condense the nonsense! I booted up the laptop with ubcd4win and was able to clean up the registry and remove the lame files that zenosearch installed. Again rebooted the laptop and guess what. No more popups, no more zenosearch nonsense!

Thank you UBCD4WIN!

Adam Hughes and a life size catwoman

November 13, 2008

I was going through some of my pics I took at Megacon in Orlando. And I came across this one. Adam Hughes was at his table. When this chick came over dressed up as catwoman. Adam took a pic with her and I managed to capture a shot as well. Looks like he just finished drawing her. 🙂

This pic just totally looks great and reminds me of his original drawing. Gotta say hats off to that chick. She pulled off that costume awesomely.

Lucidux-SansOblique open type font and editing pdf documents created with pdflib

November 10, 2008

For those of you php programmers using the pdflib package for creating pdf’s. Sometimes you find that you need to edit your pdf’s. Well at least I find that I do. I’ve just about killed myself trying to find the font called lucidux-SansOblique. Luckily I’ve found it!

Normally when using pdflib on a linux machine the fonts used are type 1 fonts and not true type fonts. Trying to edit a pdf on your windows box results in a font not found error. This is majorly annoying. And trying to find the font online can be a major headache. Luckily enough I found the Lucidux-SansOblique font online and I put it on Free Font View under Lucidux-SansOblique so that others can use the font too. I hope this helps others searching for this font.

Election day ice cream from ben & jerry and free coffee from starbucks

November 4, 2008

Awesome election day ice cream by ben & jerry. And some great Starbucks coffee. to boot.

We hit up the starbucks on 135th street and biscayne blvd for some coffee. And i have to say it was freedomlicious. The little gay dude behind the counter got a little insane and went all diva when one of the guys in line and me got into a conversation about how everyone had to get free coffee. due to that election rule article about how you can’t give something away free for voting. though i got my coffee anyways.

after that we swung on by ben & jerry’s for some of that election day ice cream. i got me some chocolate ice cream. it was awesome. and here are some pics.
