Fruit on the bottom [c]

Ok, let me just say for posterity: "fruit on the bottom" (generally referring to yogurt, although also potentially referring to kinky bedroom practices) is a stupid, stupid idea.

If I wanted to make my own food I wouldn't buy the convenient snack-size yogurt thingy, I'd buy a cow and a strawberry field. Having to stir it all up and always having a few chunks of strawberry that I missed stuck along the bottom is annoying. I don't want blobs of strawberry goo and blobs of vanilla, I want a smooth mix of the two. I didn't buy "plain yogurt with strawberry goo", I bought "strawberry yogurt". So fucking STOP putting the fruit on the bottom, you fuckers, and let me eat my yogurt in peace.

Scary Post: Forgent suing over jpgs [g]

Forgent Networks is suing 31 companies over their patent on digital image compression - specifically, JPEG compression. The list of companies is impressive, starting at Adobe and extending through Xerox. If they start winning these cases, there could be a huge impact - for one, a lot of companies will potentially owe a lot of money, and more importantly JPEG images will suddenly be verboten.

We already lost GIF's, now we're going to lose JPEG's? Jesus H. Christ in a Bucket! This is ridiculous.

Forgent: blow me.
