Monday Morning “Impediment to Productivity” – 200511014

Hi,

Good morning, well I hope we all had another fun week.
This week we have a good collection of “blame” to spread around.

First up in the “I had nothing to do with it… Blame {insert alert
reader here} Department” is this item from Bill,

“From Globetechnology: Tragically, it’s not hip – just a sum of No. 1 hits
Record labels spend millions of dollars each year trying to predict what
singles will top the charts and which ingredients make a hit single.

Now, two Massachusetts Institute of Technology PhD grads believe they
have cracked the code. After years of crunching data, Brian Whitman and
Tristan Jehan have devised a computer program that listens to a song,
then predicts how humans will react to it.”

Rather Ironic given how hard Sony-BMG has been trying to LOSE customers
lately with their DRM policies. (There will be a piece in the blog).

Pay attention here “It’s not my fault”.

“How’s life in Melbourne these days ? I’ve been checking out the Thatch
Space pretty often – I’ve had my productivity impeded fairly
successfully on a regular basis.

I love the Jools Pontificates page – I absolutely love the book layout :o)
I’ve found another impediment for you – Online Sudoku puzzles

Obviously a person with excellent taste in blogs…

There was a bit from Phil (you remember Phil… we’ve blamed him before)
about the Narnia Movie and how Disney don’t wont you to know about all
the Christian allegory in the story . But I lost the URL.
But here is the latest trailer (it’s huge in every sense, this will put
a ding in your bandwidth).

Dave Barry was right, alert readers can help put a post together really
quickly when you are pressed for time.

And I passed my Java Programming exam. {Kermit like cheering goes here}

And this from http://www.quotationspage.com/quote/877.html

Technology is dominated by two types of people: those who understand
what they do not manage, and those who manage what they do not understand.

Have a good week. Pop into the blog (
