Let me start by saying that I’m a firm believer in both Ubuntu and OpenDNS. The problem I had was getting OpenDNS setup to correctly identify the IP address assigned by my ISP. I have a WiFi router that doesn’t automatically update OpenDNS, so I needed a way to keep OpenDNS updated when my IP address changes. Keep in mind that in a configuration like this (pretty common) my computer’s IP address is NOT the IP address that OpenDNS needs to identify my computer so scripts running on the computer can’t easily identify the routers external address.

There have been a few posts bouncing around Facebook related to privacy and your Facebook data. With that being said, I thought I would spend a few minutes and discuss online privacy and Facebook privacy in particular.

I went bowling last week and I made a few observations. Basically, I noticed that there are several different styles of bowling. Some people use a HUGE ball and see how hard they can throw it down the lane, for them accuracy isn’t as big a deal as simply pounding the pins. Some use a small ball and roll it easy, for these people accuracy matters more. The guys that throw the big ball hard and accurately are in the PBA.

Memories that should be cherished, are forgotten.
Actions that should be forgotten, are remembered.
Transgressions that should be forgiven, are harboured.
Events that should never have happened, haunt you.
Have you ever noticed that what one person thinks of as love can appear to be an obsession to others?
An acquaintance will tell you what you want to hear.
A player will tell you what they think will earn them the most points.A friend will tell you the truth, whether you want to hear it or not.
We all have those moments where we are provided an opportunity to crack a joke or make a comment based on the situation. Sometimes these comments can turn into pick-up lines (whether intended or not). Unfortunately, I’ve missed MANY wonderful opportunities for the “correct response”.
A friend made a comment the other day that I found interesting. The comment was “the people that blog on MySpace are just trying to manipulate people”. They immediately followed that comment up with quick look at me and muttered disclaimer that they obviously didn’t mean that I did that… but other MySpacers…
