I came across a nifty little utility that just might keep you from having your passwords stolen from you by a keylogger or similar devices and programs. Neo Aplin wrote this tiny little app called Neo's SafeKeys which will let you enter your passwords via a little onscreen keyboard. The really nifty part is that not only are you defeating keyboard loggers, but it places the buttons differently and the program window is a different size each time it's run, thereby defeating any program that attempts to log which button was clicked by mouse placement. All-in-all if you use public computers or even are just paranoid about your own and run Windows, this app's for you! If you missed the above link, here it is again.

I came across this picture on the net today and I want to know more about it. check it our for starters:
So, where did this come from? Who is this Gabe Perez guy and what possessed him to do this? I think it's hilarious and want to know more. I apologize about the crappy image quality but for some reason Blogger does that to it when I upload it, to see a better version click here. Anyways, I searched and couldn't find anything, could any of my fellow stumblers help?

Heres an awesome video of how the Baltimore Police really treat kids who are doing nothing more than skateboarding. As far as I can tell, these kids didn't even provoke this cop to act like a pompous ass, and this one in particular needs to be FIRED! He even says his name on the video so have at him!
You've gotta check out this video, this gun was created by Anthony Smith over 4 months by hand, and is capable of shooting 40 rubberbands per second, with a capacity of 288. Awesome.. just awesome. Found at techeblog.

I just found out that there is a new game by the creators of Penny Arcade in development, and it looks like it's going to be hilarious, and fun to boot. I heard about it on linuxgames.com, so even better than it just existing, it will have a native Linux version! Check out more on the game and view screenshots at the official site here.

I came across a website today, NoMoreLOL.com, which advocates replacing the way too damn often misused LOL acronym with LOI (Laughing on the Inside,) which, honestly, is probably more accurate like 98% of the time. I know there's probably been like 2 times ever I've actually laughed out loud while reading something or chatting at work, but dozens of times I typed LOL (even though I don't use it often) and you know, Sai is right. Screw that, LOL doesn't describe what is going on at all most of the time. Anyways, the site made me LOI, so check it out.
Oh, and sorry about the lack of updates if anybody cares, I haven't really been much into it lately, I've got some serious financial issues I'm trying to deal with, and in the middle of all that my rent money got stolen at knifepoint, so.. I dunno, if anyone cares, click some freakin' ads or send me a buck or something :P

So I read that there is a theory about how we all have our individual perception of the way reality is and what we perceive as being real. The article is here about this "Big Brain Theory" which states that in our perception, each of us has our own universe we exist in, along with all other entities, however given the likelihood of all things possible actually happening in a universe, we may mostly all be at simplest, a brain free-floating in space with what we see as reality existing only perceptually. Maybe it's true, maybe not, maybe we're actually all brains in vats hooked up to a vast created reality run by the network of brains themselves. I'm not sure about that, but I have held a theory about reality and the universe for a long time now and I figure I should publish it somewhere.
Now, there might not be any evidence for this, but there isn't any against it either, so make up your own mind after reading. There is no such thing as time. That sounds weird, but let me explain. An event that occurs in time has a series of stages, each occurring one after another in a fluid movement. You pick up a glass, you put it to your mouth, you drink. I think that all of these steps (and all the infinitely small steps in between) occur at once, and we perceive them in the order of time. I don't mean that they are all occurring at once in one place, I mean that there are an infinite number of parallel universes in which are contained every possible configuration of matter in the universe. So, as we move through the human concept of time, we are really moving between alternate realities in such a way that events seem to occur one after another the way we are used to. In this way, we can explain any event that would take place and every configuration of matter possible. Maybe it's far-reaching, but that would mean that technically, it would be possible to travel through 'time' or even teleport yourself or an object if we could somehow master choosing our path through universes. What this also means is that there exists a reality where every possibility has happened and so with control, we could alter the outcome of every event to prevent tragedies. Now I'm not going to argue whether that is a good idea or not, but I can't see how at least in some instances that could possibly not be. This is just something that I thought up when I was younger, and I still think I believe it, so why not publish. That's not all I've got, but it's all I can post this second, so stay tuned for more of my psycho theories later, and let me know what you think in the comments!
ps- Thanks to Christopher Fahey for the image.

I just found some disturbing information about bluetooth headsets for all you cellphone happy consumers. Any bluetooth headset can be listened in on, EVEN WHEN YOU'RE NOT ON IT! Watch the video for more.
