I’m proud of this guy. A radio show shock jock prank called the 700 Club prayer line, asking to pray for the assassination of Hugo Chavez, a la Pat Robertson. The staffer would have none of it and dealt with it in a really awesome fashion. Rock on staffer John!
700 Club: Uh, let’s pray.
BEAST: Yeah, dear lord heaven something…
700 Club: No, no, no, no no, we not going to go on this together because you may say the wrong thing. So let’s—uh, go ahead and let me pray and if you don’t agree, fine.
700 Club: Father, in the name of the lord Jesus Christ we pray. I would like you to put your hands on this situation today lord, in the name of Jesus, lord. Lord, in the flesh we have a tendency to want to get back at our enemies, but the bible says vengeance is mine, said the lord, in the mighty name of the lord Jesus Christ we pray, and that goes for if America is wrong; it goes for if people down in South America is wrong, wherever, because the Bible says you reap what you sow, according to Galatians chapter 6 verse 7. These prayers and these blessings we ask are in Jesus name, amen.
BEAST: Amen for the assasination of Hugo Chavez!
700 Club: Sir, I rebuke that in Jesus name. Amen.
Some interesting gossip and speculation that the White House has basically fallen apart, with Cheney abandoning Bush to his incompetent fate, Rove in the doghouse over the Plame affair, and the far less astute Card and Bartlett now in favor.
I’m very excited today :-) My co-worker Anders Carlsson has spent the last two months with starting a port of GTK+ to the Mac OS X Cocoa framework, so GTK+ applications will eventually run natively (without needing X11) on that platform.
The port is still in its early stages and incomplete, but after these few weeks it’s already complete enough to give compiling GIMP a try.

A really good port of GTK to native OS X widgets would be a HUGE win for OS X.
As I read my new Ruby on Rails book, and dream of my agile web app development-fu that it will bring me, I read the definitive web site on agile bridge building to give me a sense of perspective. :)
Yow. Via Digg.
“I watched the warden sniff down the email addresses of people I was communicating with on MSN, the URL of several websites that I had open at the time, and the names of all my running programs, including those that were minimized or in the toolbar. These strings can easily contain social security numbers or credit card numbers, for example, if I have Microsoft Excel or Quickbooks open w/ my personal finances at the time.”
