Beer Launching Fridge

Another great alcohol delivery system:

The Hole – video powered by Metacafe

This is certainly not without its flaws; most notable that it dispenses cans which I’m sure will be well shaken after the toss and catch. Its no Bar Monkey, but you’ve gotta respect the effort.

Worth another look – It’s A Frog’s Life Acoustic Podcast

It's A Frog's Life Acoustic PodcastLast summer I wrote about some of the Acoustic, Irish and Celtic podcasts I was listening to. Back then I had just started listening to Graham Holland’s It’s A Frog’s Life Acoustic Podcast, but then again, Graham had just started doing the podcast, so I guess that’s to be expected.

The show has gone from great to outstanding. Show 15, a MySpace special was just outstanding. Graham continues to hand-pick fantastic music and put out a great podcast. He was even nice enough to give me a shout-out in show 16.

The Tao of Oracle

What follows is just a small taste of the 37 page PDF which is The Tao of Oracle.

Something is mysteriously formed,
Born before heaven and Earth.
In the silence and the void,
Standing alone and unchanging,
Ever present and in motion.
Perhaps it is the source of all code and data.
I do not know its name
I therefore call it the Tao of Oracle.

Truncate your mind.
Let the SGA become still.
The ten thousand transactions rise and fall
while the rollback watches their return.
They grow and flourish and then return to the disk.
Returning to the source is stillness,
which is the way of the Tao.

The instance has crashed.
I am the ORA 600.
No one hears your screams.

The bug you seek
Is found on Metalink.
You click the reference,
but it is non-published.

Roby Sherman at Interealm Software Imagineering did this “translation” of the Tao. The only thing that could possibly make this funnier would be if version 2.1 were referred to as 3T or some other seemingly arbitrary number and letter.

Picture this floating in your bathtub!

Get clean with poo!Stuck for a Valentines gift this year? Show your feelings with a big steaming pile of poo!

This isn’t just some plastic dog poop; it’s actually cappuccino scented hand soap. Available from Nope, It’s soap!

There is no doubt that your sweetheart will think of you every time they rub these little nuggets on their hands.

For just $7.95 (shipping included) this is definitely the shittiest gift since the Luwak Coffee gift pack.

If your relationship just isn’t ready for the gift of poo, maybe you need Cheetos Lip Balm. Now there’s a good idea. I’m sure this is made from the same orange goo that coats your fingers as you devour Cheetos.

Thanks again to Don Burleson for sending on these fine gift ideas.
