The, uh, “Drunk and Retarded” weblog isn’t my creation. Nope, no sir.
I may be mistaken, but I do believe I saw and heard the president make a not so veiled statement about assassinating terrorists around the world over the past two years.
I believe the exact words were,
And many others have met a different fate. Let’s put it this way: They are no longer a problem to the United States and our friends and allies.
Damn it, instead of West Wing, there’s some weird network movie about the news media covering combat in the middle-east (well, in one of The ‘Stans at least) with Jeff Goldblum.
(I hope they make another Buckaroo Banzai for him to be in. That’d be sweet.)
If you’re a war-journalists junkie like myself, you’re better off with something like The Lion’s Grave or Ambushed. Hell, even HST’s black-ball opium laced coverage of The Fall of Saigon from Laos might be better. Sure, they’re “books,” but they’re good, and they don’t have that eerie English Patient meets Mohammed’s Discount Music Shack sound track all through out.
…yeah, yeah, I’m just bitter about there being no West Wing to watch. I sure do hope War Stories isn’t an indication of the quality we can expect from NBC’s all-but over-hyped Kingpin.

Dude, My wireless Bling report was by no means meant to be Blogware. I wrote
that on the fly while eating pizza combos, drinking 1% milk and watching
Austailian V8 super car racing on my DVR. My prose was sloppy and my
structure wasn’t sound. I did not even finish touting the superior 802.11a
protocol. Please forward my apologies to the drunk and Retied community. I
offer the Ghetto Hooptie Woo song by Bubb Rubb an Lil Sis as a sacrifice.
This track was mixed by the great Evil Shift Key…not that hack
Must get 1% milk, “pizza combos,” and start watching Australian car racing…then maybe I’ll be as funny as Maxx.
If you use the word “porn” in the first line of your post, you must get a few new posts within a few days. This is not a quality issue at all, rather, after endless e-mails offering to elongate one’s penis, see someone do unspeakable acts with twizlers and glue-sticks, or any number of offers for something called “Cobra Love Venom,” one hungers for something non-sexual.
Thank you, please drive through.

Okay, this debacle kept me up last night so I had to go to the library to
research. Here are my finding:
ho hum connectivity for the masses. Popular with AOL users and Expedition
driving soccer moms. Oh wait. Maybe net yet. uses 2.4Ghz range with a splash
of sprectrum spread. Max speed 11Mbps. This protocol will interfere with
your X-10 video distribution and your cordless phone network…assuming you
are up to date.
802.11b with some ‘speed tweaks’. Kinda like a street racer bolting on clear
corners, cold air induction and a cat-back GReddy exhaust.
Uses 2.4Ghz. Will work with 802.11b networks. 54Mbps max speed. Apple uses
this in their AirPort® Extreme. They really should have called it Xtreem
AirPort®….but who am I to name brand?
54Mbps max speed. uses 5.4 MGhz. Not compatible with b or g protocols.
stay tuned for 802.11e and 802.11h
