"Blog" is short for "web log".Per the original definition, "Weblogs are often-updated sites that point to articles elsewhere on the web, often with comments, and to on-site articles."

Web logging should not be confused with writing Online Journals, Online Diaries, political commentary pages, or other dated-format web pages.(Consider the difference between the definitions of the word "journal" and the word "log". (A log, figuratively speaking, is a regular record kept to determine where you are and where you've been, and is kept to help others get to the same places.)

The weblog is just notes on whatever I happen to be thinking about or researching at the time.As a personal log, it may or may not contain anything of interest to you.

The Consumer Electronics Show begins tomorrow (view blog).

These days, the technology business ain't for the faint of heart. In the space of a week in December, IBM (IBM) sold its PC business to Lenovo, Oracle (ORCL ) gained approval for its takeover of PeopleSoft (PSFT), and Symantec (SYMC) made a winning offer for Veritas (VRTS). Why? It seems that a slow recovery in spending coupled with vicious global competition is helping the strong get stronger while the weak take a powder... [more]

What does OVA mean / stand for? (e.g. Tenchi Muyo OVA)
A: OVA stands for "original video animation", which means that it was an anime that was not aired on television or as a movie in theatres, rather it is a series (serial) released as "direct to video". However, this does not have the same negative connotation as "direct to video movies" have, as high-quality anime series are often released in Japan as "OVA". If these sell well, a television series, and/or a "theatrical release" movie, is often produced afterwards.

Here's an update on the Computer System Comparison:
I now wish I had gotten the Sony VAIO VGC-RA820G instead of the Dell XPS Gen 2...

I saw the Sony today at Fry's for $1,700, which is the price I paid for the Dell...

Why do I prefer the Sony?
First and foremost: integrated liquid cooling. The Dell is annoying loud (cooling fans run constantly).
Sony's got an integrated 200 GB Hard Drive; I Dell came with 112 GB...
The Sony has a pre-integrated Video-In card and TV Recording (DVR) Software and Windows Media Center edition (Dell doesn't.)
The Sony also has a Dual Layer DVD+R recording drive (also does standard DVD±RW duty).

Lastly, what Dell doesn't show you is that the put HUGE DELL brands on sides and front of their case (it's ugly, retarded, and they should pay me for advertising their product).

So I was trying to determine the cubic root of a number today (don't ask)... It's not something I hav to do very often, so I couldn't remember how to do it on the Calculator in Microsoft Windows. But I found out there's a really cool alternative! All you have to do is plug your calculation into Google!! E.g. Want the cubic root of 1.65? Enter "(1.65)^(1/3)" into the Google search box, click "Google search", and voila!
