NRDC: The Bush Record

Please help keep the dub'ya administration from destroying us and the rest of the world. Donate a few bucks to the NRDC, they are a good organization and they have a great record.

George W. Bush makes my stomach churn when I hear his voice or see his image. I have to run to the bathroom sometimes with diarrhea. No shit... well, yes shit.

The worst thing about him is that he really believes he is doing the right thing. I can almost admire that, except he almost always does the wrong thing.

Bullet With Butterfly Wings

Can the Smashing pumpkins really be getting back together?

The world is a vampire...
What do I get for my desires...

Inspite all my rage
I'm just a rat in a cage...

Even though I know I suppose I'll show...

Tell me I'm the only one,
tell me there's no other one,

Jesus was an only son....

now, tell me I'm the chosen one

Jesus was an only son....


despite all my rage, I'm still just rat in a cage.............

Forsythia

About Forsythia
In seeking to know about forsythia, one could start at the origin of the name. Forsythia is named in honor of William Forysth, director of the Chelsea Physic Garden in 1770, maker of the first rock garden in the UK and one of the founders of the Royal Horticultural Society. The forsythia plant is native to China and was discovered there by Robert Fortune, a great eighteenth century plant-hunter.

But it is better as a song by Veruca Salt off the American Thighs album.

(you remember Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka, don't you)


Yellow baby,
A yellow baby is a bad sign.
But I don’t mind, I don’t mind,
Ohhh, forsythia.
Spider monkey,
A spider monkey is a good lie.
But I don’t know why,
Ohhh, forsythia, oh-ohhh.
I don’t mind sitting in the way way back.
I don’t mind, lying to my friends.
One thing about forsythia,
She comes around and I get lost
Against her yellow, I’m no longer me.
Yellow daisy, a dandelion or a pussy willow,
It’s a different thing.
Oh-oh, forsythia. forsythia. forsythia.
One thing about forsythia,
She comes around and I get lostAgainst her yellow I’m no longer me.
One thing about forsythia
There’s one thing about forsythia

Quality of Service

The recommendations that I have received so far to alleviate my QoS problem with my vonage phone service is to setup a linux box that will do QoS routing.

Does anyone have a recommendation for that setup? I have been told that CoyoteLinux is a good way to go. I'll look into that and report back.

But, now I have to go did through the attic for that old 486 and some NIC cards.

Vonage

I use Vonage for my home and office phone lines. My router does not do Q0S and I was wondering if anyone knows of a cheap router that does do Quality of Service routing?

My phones actually work fine almost all of the time, but there are those rare occasions that the amount of traffic is just too much.
