Fir Homme - email to advertiser [Nov. 9th, 2012|06:14 pm]
Dear Mr. Twamley

A friend of mine on facebook recently started asking about an Irish advert (not Fir Homme), so I immediately decided to check the site to link to the video again.

Fir Homme drove me crazy. Here was this ad, clearly fake, but very professional... and with no clue of who the heck had made it. Even the website didn't provide hints!

I went to the site today to see a blank page. Checking the page source code, I found the big image that should have been displayed, explaining Setanta was behind my wild goose chase, and after a bit of source-code clicking, I eventually found the right page explaining why you did it.

This email is to tell you your website is not working correctly, at least for people using Firefox or Chrome (most people these days). You might want to contact your coders/programmers and get them to check it.

Thank you for the confusing ad.

Best regards,
Luke O'Neill

For those who wonder [Nov. 4th, 2011|11:55 pm]
This is essentially now just a remnant so that a friends list still exists.

But since I tend to pass out my LJ before my Gmail info, it's also a line of communication.

22" monitors [Jan. 12th, 2009|03:22 pm]
Unexpected things about 22" monitors:
1. It has speakers.
2. It's obscenely big.

Bad things about 22" monitors:
1. Teaching your eye to MOVE since peripheral vision isn't adequate for reading text far to the right.
2. Discovering that 2 built-in speakers will make your 2.1 speaker system sound worse if you're trying to get surround sound.

Writer's Block: Long Nights, Short Poems [Dec. 21st, 2008|09:02 pm]
[Tags|, , , ]

It's the winter solstice in the Northern hemisphere, summer solstice in the Southern hemisphere, and Haiku Day in the U.S. Does that inspire you to write a three-line poem with five syllables in the first and last lines and seven in the middle line?


No, because I don't use the 5/7/5 approach to Haiku. It's far too Japanese for me to write one in English.

Winter's here and silence takes
The gem of bird-song. Winter takes
The warmth of lovers. Frozen flakes
Of water tumble to iced lakes.

The thaw will not come soon.

Internet letters 003 [Dec. 12th, 2008|09:34 am]
Dear botulism,

I know we've had a bit of a love-hate relationship ever since that dented can first introduced us and that time you got marketed as a way to remove wrinkles, but I have to say your new work is truly remarkable.

I mean, killing drug users by hiding in heroin. I had no idea you were capable of that! Really got me paranoid about how robust your little spores are.

To think, 8 suspected cases and one fatality already. And what shocked me more is hearing that you did a similar job to this a few years ago. And here's me thinking you just stuck around in red-neck SPAM cans waiting to make localised pockets of disease to those unsuspecting.

Maybe we should get together again?

Wishfully,
Adder (the Sober Irish Guy)

Dear Spam,

I know you get discriminated against because of the few thousand coders who have nothing else to do but amateur hacking for their own illegally gotten gains, but you have to realise that as a community you are at fault in most cases.

There is a line that you cross, constantly. That is not to say that religious evangelists do not also cross this line; I acknowledge that they do. In fact, even scientists cross this line quite often. The difference is the malicious way that you (and Scientology) take it to the next level: Money.

It's always money. The few times you try to "gather info" it is used to get money.

We're all sick and tired of this crap, so you might want to cut back on the volume sent.

If you don't, actions will be taken.

Slightly threateningly yours,
Adder (the Sober Irish Guy)

Dear trolls,

You're impressing no one. Further, as you struggle to pleasure yourselves by needlessly creating misery throughout something a miseryful as the internet I hope you realise that the only people truely entertaining you are trolls themselves.

Maybe if you were nicer the other trolls would come over and you could take a break from self-pleasuring and get some real action. But maybe that's why you troll in the first place. After all, if you keep everyone away from you then no one is ever close enough to hurt you.

And that's terrible.

Sincerely,
Adder, the Sober Irish Guy

I feel almost like asking for attention. Which is odd.

What'd'ya think?

Seriously, any feedback welcome. Particularly reactions to it. I still can't work it out.

What if we're just talking |What if we're just speaking
                    Broken |Fragments of poetic lines.
       Fragments of divine?|
      Muses' wakes to wash |Muses' wakes to wetten
                    To wet |Inspiration from the tides
       Inspiration's waves |
                     Wanes,|Captured moments - mental -
              Speak poetic |Saved in metaphor divine
         Catch the glimpse |
              We just talk |
                    Divine |
