Retro encabulator

TAGS: None

For IT departments everywhere:

I bet their orders have gone through the roof after this. I also feel I must agree with this commenter on Engadget:

The Retro Encabulator is AMAZING. Only one flaw; side feed magnetic flow control processors can only divert amplitude inversing digital readouts to a single marsel vane. To correct this problem, jumper JP8 to JP14 with parity wire and crossfeed the verbose input shaft with magnetic tape. Only wrap the tape twice to avoid capular soil feedback. Great work Rockwell Automations!

Truth in advertising…

A collection of brilliant adverts. One slight glitch – they are truthful. Here are my favourites:

Tomorrow we are doing a Samizdata blogger bash and one of the Samizdatistas, Michael Jennings in a bout of generosity is kindly bringing a whole leg of Serrano ham to share. Another blogging groupie is bringing a ham stand and a knife. So the video below is particularly relevant and wonderfully silly:

6.6 Billion potential customers

TAGS: None

When The Lord God Almighty’s enters the CEO blogging game, you know time’s up, all you business types… he’s got his eye on you!

With 22 operational subsidiaries employing the services of over 11800 Million members of staff, most of whom spend a lot of time trying to kill each other, it’s easy to loose touch with the needs, fears and desires of 6.6 billion potential customers.

The purpose and mission of this personal blog is to offer both staff and customers a behind the scenes, no hold barred look at the way I, the Lord God Almighty, go about daily business; offering more transparency, more accountability and more visibility to my mysterious ways and explore some of the challenges facing a modern day deity.

Hell, it isn’t easy being God. Benchmark me.

We write ads…!

Terry Pratchett reading guide

TAGS: None

I am a big fan of Terry Pratchett. I often say that the best book on political philosophy I have ever read is his Night Watch. But as Cory Doctorow points out:

…how daunting it must be to be confronted with Pratchett’s 33 Discworld novels and try to figure out where to start. Part of the charm of these books is that they’re not written in any main sequence, but rather in several interrelated series that follow the lives of many different characters and subplots.

and provides a handy reading guide.

I usually recommend people begin with Interesting Times, or Guards! Guards! or Men at Arms. The main thing is to start. :)
