"Tired of WarBlogs? Most blogs are people whining about their life, computers or the war. Not sexblogs. " [MetaFilter]
Well, it had to happen. I was the one who started the original sexBlogs.com nearly 2 years ago. I ditched it because too many were taking out blogs and not paying, traffic was immense and not the right sort, and, well, I got bored of sex, I mean porn. I think there's a burn out period of about 3 months. After that it all starts looking the same, 'seen one lesbo couple, you've seen 'em all.'
late, late nights and early mornings. I need a lie in soon. So busy at the moment.
"Most importantly, at all the companies we studied, the key issues in building a good intranet portal were political and organizational -- not technical. Basically, buying software won't get you a good portal unless you also manage internal company politics."
May as well get somthing very cheap then? Nope, companies feel comforted by spending millions on software.
"The average cost for a three-year SAP deployment is $10m, with consulting accounting for $3.6m, personnel soaking up $2.5m, software licenses another $2m, and related hardware and training costs picking up the rest of the tab."
"A US blueprint to rebuild blitzed Iraq will turn the nation into a 'little America', it was claimed yesterday.
Every aspect of Iraqi life will be affected. There are even proposals to draw up a 'politically neutral' school curriculum and replace the Iraqi dinar with the dollar.
The aim is to create under the USAID agency an open society modelled on Western democracies.
But critics in the region will see it as confirmation that the US wants to turn Iraq into a puppet state.
Dr Azzan Tamimi, an expert on Middle East politics, said: "The US is trying to make a Little America because it needs Iraqi oil." It's arrogant to think America can replicate its society. It's never been successful in exporting democracy. That has to grow from the people.""
Wait a minute. The US is THE biggest exporter of democracy, witness Europe after the WWII. And what's wrong with modelling Iraq on Western democracies? This was always the aim, no longer tribal despots - their 'aving fuckin' democracy and they'll learn to love it. Then, it'll grow from the people.
And education is what I want! Currently, the only place kids in most arab countries can get educated is in religious schools, and we know were that leads, and where it'll lead in the future. If the US is successful in one thing, this has to be it.

Why is the Mirror reporting such crap?
This is a strange story! Only tiny amounts of ricin were found in London, and ricin can be made in this country out of castor beans.
"Some of the bodies that have been recovered, enemy bodies that have been recovered up there, are not Iraqis, they're not Iranians. We don't know for sure, but they're most likely al Qaeda."
How, can they discern that? Can they really tell the difference between a dead Iraqi/Iranian/Saudi? Come on, what's going on here?
Why is Reuters reporting such tosh?
