The above photo was snapped on the final day in the life of the Astor Place Barnes & Noble in New York City.
The photographer suggests, "For the new year, fellow bibliophiles, let's resolve not to defile our remaining bookstores in this way."
Indeed. If you've never lived or worked New York City trust me when I say that rather than move here out of curiosity, you can simply look at this photo and know exactly what it is like.
In a stunning bout of honesty, Adobe's licensing subsystem would like you to know that it has managed to fail "catastrophically."
The poor human who caused this error writes:
Adobe pushed out an upgrade of its Creative Suite. I installed it, as prompted. This is what happens when I try to run any element of the Suite after the install.
Click on the modal dialog box and the program closes. For extra redundancy, there's a second error message that reads "licensing for this product has stopped working." But I am impressed that I wasn't merely able to get the programs to fail, but that I got them to fail "catastrophically."
Hey, guess what? Xbox Live is sorta puking again (maybe due to Windows Live Data Authentication says the Pirate King) after briefly recovering from its holiday cold. Nasty weather to blame for the long illness? Nope, rumor has it greasy hackers are the reason I've had problems getting online to snipe your face off in Team Fortress 2 lately.
Primotech says that according to a "source close to Microsoft," Live was brought to its sputtering, coughing state by some assface(s) launching a systematic denial-of-service attack. Of course, no confirmation from Microsoft—or any details about the cause of the outage—but the whole ignorance-is-bliss-for-users approach is apparently funneling some flames into Major Nelson's earbox, so hopefully they'll give us some real info soon.

OLPC should be snagging mad coverage over at Valleywag, they're generating tabloid headlines like it's their mission lately (so tame!). The latest: After joining OLPC following its bitch fight with OLPC founder Nicholas Negroponte over its Classmate competitor, Intel is now out the door. And it's apparently because Negroponte has some deep-seeded jealousy issues.
According to Intel, not only did Negroponte persist in his demand that they stop selling the Classmate—part of the horde sacking the shit out of OLPC's Rome all over the world—he insisted Intel stop working with any company that makes cheap notebooks, like Asus. That's a bit much. What happened to laptops and love for the childrens?
If it really went down this way, OLPC is in much worse shape than we thought. We eagerly await their back-biting response. [CNET]
Weblog Hackosis details a smart hack for finding an internet browser in Windows XP in the face of extreme IT lockdown—where Internet Explorer is blocked and Firefox is an out-of-the-question extravagance. The method? Simply use the browser built into the XP default help app. For example, just open up an app like Calculator, hit F1 or go to Help -> Help Topics, then right-click the title bar and select "Jump to URL..." Then it's simply a matter of entering the URL you want to visit. It may not work in extreme cases of IT lockdown, but it's worth a try if you're desperate. While you're at it, here are a few more methods to survive IT lockdown.
