Holy shit, this site is amazing. Try to use Firefox if you can, it is probably most compatible. Ironically, I got a report that the site worked like crap in OS X itself [but it was from ToastyX, and nobody cares what ToastyX thinks] Oh, and I'm referring to the site itself, not the OS X total conversion kit that makes Windows look like OS X. I hate all those OS X theme packages because they always get something wrong, and the Aqua theme only looks good on Mac; it looks like shit on Windows.
Imogen Heap/Frou Frou is(/are?) excellent.
The best songs:
Imogen – Speak for yourself – 01 – Headlock
Imogen – Speak for yourself – 04 – Loose ends (kinda weird)
Imogen – Speak for yourself – 05 – Hide and seek (awesome a cappella – first caught my ear at the end of season 2 of The O.C.)
Imogen – Speak for yourself – 07 – Daylight Robbery (fucking ROCKS, literally)
Frou Frou – Details – 04 – Must be dreaming (breakbeaty goodness)
Microsoft, in a huge changeup from the norm, has decided to default Office 12 to save its files in OpenXML format. The files will no longer be binary, no longer proprietary. This is astonishing to me. :P
Sysinternals is one of my favorite tech sites, because their utilities are simply genius [and without them, my job would be 10x harder], and Mark's blog is fun to read, because he explains issues he has in-depth. He almost always uses a Sysinternals program to bail himself out of a sticky situation, so it's kind of a nice self-serving blog (in a good way) ;)
I don't know much about Bruce, but I bet he's a genius too. Microsoft respects the hell out of those two, and so do I. Sysinternals products are mentioned, and even recommended, in numerous MSKBs.
Visit Mark Russinovich's blog here: http://www.sysinternals.com/Blog/
Visit their utilities section, too. Specifically, Autoruns and Rootkitrevealer, which are two amazing pieces of software that just keep getting better.
Results 1 - 10 of about 4,120,000,000 for *.*. (0.05 seconds) [results vary depending on the current google server being queried]
I just stumbled across something astonishing. A query so simple, yet so elegant…
Just a few minutes ago, I discovered that if I type:
*.* – [Thanks ToastyX!]
in the query box at google, I can search the entire internet.
But seriously — the results are crazy. See for yourself! : http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=%2B*-*&btnG=Search
Seems it works on froogle, too.
Everything is highlighted. All of your terms have been matched!

Now for my next questions: what determines the order? Where are these results being pulled from? Why this order?

Tonight, mass hysteria and panic swept this tiny town, leaving dozens badly bruised, one with a severe neck injury, and several people trampled as concerned citizens flocked to their cars to get the hell out of the confined theater.
War of the Worlds was over.
The theater was packed, and all two year-olds were present, willing, and whining. Sources say someone wouldn't stop farting. Another was badly injured after being mauled for applauding at the end of the movie.
