Russell reacts to Referer Spam…

Russell Beattie Notebook – Home

What I really want to do though is to be able to mark a URL as referrer spam, then the next time someone hits my machine with that URL as a referrer, a lethal electric shock is sent back through the internet into their computer, killing them and all of their referrer spamming family. (I’m thinking it’s a genetic trait to be such an asshole, might as well wipe them all off the planet in one shot). What do you think? Too severe? How about just torture instead?

One metachlorian short of a Jedi…

One last, long campout for ‘the Star Wars guy’

Jeff Tweiten lives on a periwinkle blue, fold-out futon on the sidewalk in front of the Cinerama Theatre.

He is not homeless, but camping out for 139 days. Waiting.

For Godot, you wonder? An organ transplant? The end of the world?

Jeff Tweiten is already waiting in line outside the Cinerama in downtown Seattle for the next “Star Wars” film.

Tweiten is waiting for “Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith,” which opens May 19.

One correction: if you are camping out for 139 days waiting for the next Star Wars movie, you are unemployed, not a graphic artist.
