In the grand tradition of Washington politics, the party in power gets caught in a web of arrogance and hypocrisy.

When you lie with Republican dogs, expect to get bitten by fleas.

Just saw this tonight and liked this scene. Should have been required viewing by last Wednesdays teabag wingnuts.

I was sick with some kind of bug last Friday, so I decided to do some cleaning – of my keyboard. I bought my first Mac 20 years ago this month – it was an SE/30 setup for well over $3000. The only component of that setup I’m still using today is the Apple Extended Keyboard – probably one of the best keyboards ever made. It is currently connected to my 24-inch Intel iMac with a USB-ADB adapter – no drivers needed. Here are the instructions for cleaning this keyboard.

One disadvantage of this keyboard is that it’s so large that right-handed users have to move their forearms well to the right in order to use a traditional mouse which contributes to repetitive stress injuries. This problem is solved by using my iPod Touch as a mouse using the AirMouse ($6). It’s an excellent piece of software, using either the accelerometer or touchscreen to move the pointer and offering various onscreen interfaces – media player, trackpad, or keyboard.
