Mark Harrison sent around this wonderful advertisement for the stamina of the Dead Dictator! Click on it to be taken to its Flickr page to see it in greater size.

Just a quick reminder -- the conficker virus version C is expected to explode tomorrow, April 1. It would be a good idea to update your anti-virus software and malware software, and go to Microsoft if you run Windows, and download their malware removal tool, the Malicious Software Removal Tool.

Don't miss the comments below! And check out my blog and its sidebars for events, links to previous posts and picture posts, and scores of links to other Taiwan blogs and forums!

The irony is that, as far as stamina goes, the Gimmo is said to be lacking in that department as a result of the STDs he caught as a young military man. That, combined with the whiskey... no wonder he was so angry all the time.

Or, y'know... Just get a Mac and not have to worry about stuff like conficker.

Jason: but then you'd have to worry about limited compatibility with a whole variety of programs, plus a ridiculous dock interface, and no real support for multiple monitors (the windowing system isn't designed for it even though you can get it across different monitors--how do you tell what window is on what monitor?).

Windows is a pain to keep up to date and secure. Mac is a pain for many other things as well. Ubuntu is interesting in that it keeps just about everything (every application) up to date automatically. If peripherals could be 99% compatible with Ubuntu, I'd use that for everything.
