SQUARE ENIX is Professional!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From the Square Enix blog we get this entry, which reads:

And a mandragora visited our booth! How cute!!!

Two more days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Come see us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Booth #5001!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes!!!!! How Cute!!!!!!!!! And this certainly seems professional!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And not desperate for attention!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Of course, if they really wanted attention, they'd release more details about Final Fantasy XIII or announce Kingdom Hearts III or something.

I've really got to start previewing and proof-reading these entry.

Working Around Slight Issues With Eclipse WTP's JavaScript Editor

So after getting spun into another infinite error loop while editing a JavaScript file, I discovered that the error dialog is thankfully modeless. I was able to save the file and close it to stop the infinite error loop.

Powertip: You can right click on files and use the "Open With" submenu to select the plain old text editor for JavaScript files.

I Finally Created a Facebook Account

I finally gave in and created a Facebook account. It'll be interesting to see if anyone finds me and adds me. (It did actually list quite a few people I know when I created the account. Which I then basically skipped past. This is either laziness or depression, take your pick.)

Interestingly enough, Facebook can import RSS feeds, so I've pointed my account at my existing blog, which I post to almost never.

Maybe I'll post more often. Somehow I doubt it.

And no, I'm not really up this late.

Top Gear Comes to the US

So Top Gear is coming to the US. Ignoring that Top Gear has already come to the US. And then left after people threw stones at them and tried to kill them.

Er, actually, the UK version of Top Gear is currently shown on BBC America at 8PM Eastern on Mondays. In the past the Discovery Channel has shown episodes.

If you haven't watched Top Gear on BBC America before, then you're missing out on what's easily the funniest show on cable.

PlayStation Network portable ID

With the addition of trophies, it was inevitable that eventually Sony would copy the online profile aspect of Xbox Live.

And they have, sort of:

That's it. An avatar, your user name, and what would be an "about me" message if I ever bother to fill it in.

On Metal Gear Solid 4...

It has to be said, plain and simple: I have far more fun playing Devil May Cry 4 than Metal Gear Solid 4.

Despite Devil May Cry 4 receiving an 84 on MetaCritic and Metal Gear Solid 4 getting a 94.

In short, while MGS4 is by no means a terrible game, it's vastly overrated. DMC4 is, simply put, more fun (to me at least) than MGS4. That's all there is to it.

"Comcast Doesn't Interfere With Active Network Connections"

Comcast claims that they don't interfere with active network connections. ORLY?

Either Comcast is, say, lieing, or Steam has some pretty severe reliability issues. The following log takes place over 12 hours:

Stupid Freaking Debian

Apparently the source of randomness in OpenSSH's implementation was raising a warning in a code checker. This caused some concern in Debian for some reason, but the solution was simple:

Remove the code that seeded the random number generator.[1]

Making all keys generated on Debian and Debian-based distros (like, say, Ubuntu) easily guessable.

iTunes Sucks

So iTunes apparently decided to crap out and destroy its own library.

What does it do? It crashes on loading its XML backup, overwrites it preventing me from reimporting it, and then proceeds to wipe my iPod clean.

Leaving me with absolutely no way to restore my playlists.

You'd think they could import the metadata from the iPod, but of course not. It just deletes everything.

Thanks a lot, Apple.
