Unfuck the Leopard Dock

After a couple of days with leopard, I got sick of the new dock. I turned up a fix after poking around, and realizing that side-mounting the dock made it not suck as much, and dumped the 3D crap.

Kick my ass, save the World

I've been using the [Boinc]( client to particpate in a number of grid computing projects for the last year. My involvemnt started off with the need to stress-test a system that was having hardware issues that we couldn't pin down accurately.

Network Neutrality for the lay-person

In the interest of equal time, Dennis Sellers posted an article written by a reader ( "John") stating that network neutrality is a Marxist notion, and is therefore bad. Even aside from the fact that it's a pretty stupid position to try to argue, John is also just plain wrong. If anything, network neutrality is an infrastructure level policy that actively encourages greater choice, and is thereby in line with, and supportive of, the capitalist free-market ideology.
