Thank God for Mississippi

Question to Miss Alabama during Miss USA Contest: If you could live forever, would you and why?

Answer: I would not live forever, because we should not live forever, because if we were supposed to live forever, then we would live forever, but we cannot live forever, which is why I would not live forever. (via Wired)

I live in Birmingham Alabama, the longest I have lived anywhere. I studied here, married here, own property here, and play tennis here. So I don't take kind to all the facts, jokes and movies that ridicule Alabama. But that doesn't mean we can't make fun of ourselves ;-- )

Some things you don't know about Alabama

  • The two primary religions are Southern Baptist, and Football
  • Even though there are 4 million football fans here, there's no professional football team
  • The expression "You all" is one word here, pronounced y'all. Y'all is singular. All Y'all is plural.
  • We are 49th in education (there are 50 states in USA), 49th in healthcare, 48th or 49th in most categories comparing the development of states. Thank God for Mississippi !

Urchin's No Good

Who said paid software is better than free software? I installed the commercially avaialble Urchin 4.1 on my Linux server after going through the pain of registration and key handling protocols. You know, Webalizer, a free and stable program is far more superior. I wanted to try Urchin because I wanted to dig deep into the usage patterns of Who cares about the brushed aluminum look?

Two word review of Urchin: No Good

Two line review of Urchin:
Urchin doesn't know how to compute page views.
Isn't that one thing it is supposed to do?
