It seems that Google bombing isn't going away. The internet nerds are all doing the dance to make Stephen Colbert the Greatest Living American. In less than two weeks the position for the term "greatest living American" in Google has gone up to the number one spot in Google for the Now I am sure Stephen is a great guy, but is he really the greatest living American?

The cool people over at Digg seem to be getting behind this Google bomb of "greatest living American" so they can win the top spot for the term in Google for Stephen Colbert's The Colbert Nation - As of today The Colbert Nation only has spot six in yahoo, spot two in MSN and its not listed in on page one at all. However the number one spot in Ask seems to be the Google bomber:

SEOmoz | Help Make Stephen Colbert the "Greatest Living American"
Help Make Stephen Colbert the "Greatest Living American" ... Use the anchor text "Greatest Living American" ...

Notice that the SEOMOZ.ORG site has a good Header with the title of "Greatest Living American", keywording of the term "greatest living American" and it has "greatest living American" in the URL as well.

This proves to me that Google's removal of older Google bombings were a limited manual process to appease President Bush, not in anyway an improvement in their Search Engine. It also shows the power of one way linking. Google needs to start working on their code to keep up with now. I think they are getting away from being a leader in good search and trying so much to be a profit machine. Maybe we should Google bomb Google as "talentless hacks"(the first Google bomb) and see how quickly they fix the Google bombing issue.

I bet Stephen Colbert loves being the greatest living American on the internet. Stephen Colbert might be the best fake Neocon Demagogue but he is not the greatest living American. Why can't I be the greatest living American instead? I like to think Eddie Van Halen is the greatest living American. Or maybe Micheal Moore is the greatest living American.

This has been a rather hellish week for me. I work a lot, I get a lot of personal chores done and I like to have a fair amount of fun. Updating my PC or building a PC is a chore to me. I spent this week working on building a new Computer with Windows Vista Ultimate on it. This is not fun anymore. Microsoft polished up a few things in the installation process for Windows Vista Ultimate. The installation was a lot smoother than I thought it could be. Everything from there goes downhill. Cons 1. A lot of programs are not working in Vista. 2. Annoying new security features (which Apple is already making fun of in their TV ads) 3. Driver Hell. This is inexcusable. 4. Its seems Microsoft hid the blue screen of death. Sweeping dirt under the rug isn't fixing the issue. 5. Seems to run as if its still a Beta Software. 6. Have to switch to classic mode yet again. The menu with a scroll sucks. Everything else looks new and shinny and they put a freaking scroll bar in the menu! I will have to switch back and forth to use goodies in the cool menu. WTF! 7. No Power off Button on the welcome screen. Windows XP has this feature. How come Windows Vista "Ultimate" Doesn't? Pros: 1. Install was quick and fairly painless, more so than all previous versions of Windows. The system hang at the end is not cool. They do not warn you about that. 2. Everything looks great except the damn scroll bar they put in the menu. 3. Aero Theme kicks ass. 4. Still more Killer Aps than Apple. Sorry I don't need Pro Tools Danjel. 5. Forces administration, I have a love/hate feel about this feature. Data blue and the Star Trek screen of Death Now to be fair. When XP first came out I was running Win2K for a year before I switched over. A lot of drivers did not work and I had fewer PCs than I do know. Parts are so cheap now that it doesn't hurt to build a new box more often now. I remember when I paid 400 for a K7 550 MHz AMD processor and a motherboard. My first 386 home PC was $3000. Now I can get a whole PC for that 400 bucks and its a P4 thats faster than 3 Ghz. So if it takes time to grow into Vista and switch between the two it doesn't hurt me so much since I can afford having multiple PCs and a KVM switch. Before I only had one rig with a few small drives. Lets see how it works in a year.

Today I got this message in my orkut scraps: Hello... It is my understanding that you are on Brian's contact list. My name is Sarah and I'm his girlfriend (soon-to-be a "mrs" sometime this summer). I regret to share with you that he will no longer be available. He passed away on Sunday, January 28th. He was 43 years old. It is a result of the ankle surgery he had on January 11th. Things were going well. The cause of his unexpected passing was a blood clot to the lungs. His doctor/surgeon did not provide him to take home anything to avoid such blood clot. We had a great weekend -- my 38th birthday was on January 26th, we had a houseful of kids and few friends over on the 27th. I had a blast in cooking and baking that day. Cooking is my passion, by the way. I need to be strong, but at the same time I feel extremely lost. I'm hanging in there, but I just missed him terribly. Thought I'd let you know that he won't be responding -- I'm contacting his Orkut buddies. Thanks for reading my message. Also, thanks for being Brian's Orkut friend. Brian was a great guy. I will miss him greatly. My heart goes out to Sarah and his kin. Brian Kadtke January 28, 2007


Staring Gerard Butler as King Leonidas ("Lion's son"), Lena Headey as Queen Gorgo, David Wenham as Dilios a spartan warrior, Dominic West as Theron, Vincent Reagan as the Captain, Tom Wisdom as Astinos (son of the captain), Micheal Fassbender as Stellios and Rodrigo Santoro as Xerxes. This movie is based on Frank Miller's graphic novel of the same name. Gerard Butler as Leonidas owns this movie. Gerard Butler makes Russel Crow in Gladiator look like a girl scout, he roars like a lion and has the swagger of a rockstar in his role as Leonidas. All the rest are garnish to Butler! This is going to be the Movie of the year. No ifs and or buts. Period. This movie was shot not on location in Greece but on a sound stage with a blue screen background for CGI oceans and backgrounds. While looking somewhat similiar to Sin City, it has its own feel and colors. It makes it look like Frank Miller's comicbook graphic novel come to life. The movie isn't 100% historically accurate. It tells nothing of Athens' Naval victories, nor of the aftermath of Athens being burned. Hoplites didn't fight naked, but in bronze armor. They were the best warriors of the day. Real life Klingons 2000 years before Star Trek. the Tale begins with young Leonidas training and growing up to be a Spartan warrior, fighting a CGI wolf, the progresses to him starting this cycle with his son. A Persian Messenger arrives with the heads of other Greek Kings to ask for his surrender, insults his Queen (for speaking out of turn) and threatens slavery to his people. Leonidas kills him right away. Leonidas then takes only a small force comprised by his personal fighting unit, because Sparta's religious customs did not allow to send out an army at this time of the year. Outnumbered 1000 to one, the Spartans held back the enemy in one of history's most famous last stands, which led the Greek city states towards nationalism (and later Alexander the Great conquering the Persian Empire). The 300 Spartans used the land and their phalanx battle tactics to their advantage in the battle of Thermopylae (a word not used once in the whole movie). The Persian army was slaughtered for two whole days of battle until they out flanked the Spartans on the third day. The Persians succeeded in taking the pass on the third day of the Battle of Thremopypae but sustained heavy losses, extremely disproportionate to those of the Greeks. The 300 Spartans fought to the last man. Mean while back at Sparta. Queen Gorgo tries to gather support for the rest of the Spartan army to support it's King and 300 best men. Theron stands in her way. She ends up being raped by him and the next day he lies about her hitting on him. She runs him through with a sword on the floor of the Council and Persian coins spill from his toga. The movie ends with 10,000 pissed off Spartan warriors heading to support their fallen King. This movie is pretty graphic, has some nudity, rape and savage violence, gore blood and a few decapitations. The pace is great but I wished the movie was longer. The dialog is great and many of the one liners are taken from Herodotus. "Come and get them" was Leonidas reply when Xerxes demanded the Greeks surrender their arms. Queen Gorgo tells Leonidas "Return with your shield, or upon it" (he tan he epi tas), meaning that a Spartan soldier was expected to return from battle either victorious (with his shield) or dead (carried on his shield), not dropping his armor to flee from battle. Before the Battle of Thermopylae, knowing that her husband's death in battle was inevitable, she asked him what to do. Leonidas replied, "Marry a good man and bear good children." "Good. Then we'll have our battle in the shade."
