NSI bites.

I'm getting really annoyed at NetworkSolutions Inc. (NSI) right now. I have a domain name, zyp.org, which I registered with them two years ago. I've spent the past two months trying to get it transfered to a registrar that sucks less, and there's been no response from NSI to release it to them. It expires next month, so I need to get this done in a hurry, or I'm gonna be forced to pay another $35 to NSI, and I really don't want to do that.

I'm really wishing that NSI had been barred from dealing with domain names or something. Their monopolistic practices and constant attempts to retain control of DNS gets so frustrating.

A great new view on Homosexuality from the Bible.

We were discussing homosexuality, and a couple of dorks were trying to justify discrimination against gays with the Bible. Their prime attack, of course, was Leviticus 18:22: Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. (King James Version)

19:52 Tominator: i have "18:22 You must not have sexual intercourse with a male as one has sexual intercourse with a woman"

19:53 EquusDeus: Well, duh.

19:53 EquusDeus: You can't have sexual intercourse with a man as you would a woman.

19:53 *StarThorn laughs.

19:53 StarThorn: You're absolutely right. It would seem the Bible endorses using the parts that you have. ;-)

Very Cool New Friend!!!

Awesome, I've talked Sarah, my very cool and very good friend, into joining LiveJournal finally. ;-)

She claims she doesn't have time for this, but I have no fear that she will soon become as addicted as the rest of us. I'm also working on getting her to spread the good word about journaling. ;-)

Everyone welcome the very cool and cute clevergirl (her LJ username). ;-)

"Voting Booth"

Okay, this is seriously one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time.

For all of you who are sick of the election, this is the *perfect* thing for you to see. ;-)

The clip is here for RealPlayer. If you want to see it in QuickTime or AVI, go here and pick the link. Make sure you watch the 30 second clip, and you'll not regret it. ;-)
