The world according to Sven-S. Porst

Just a list of links and of lists, perhaps.
- John Gruber has a post entitled The White Stripes. Rather uninteresting but the name hit a sweet spot with me.
- Jamie Zawodny about computer upgrade woes. Basically, I don't believe in the concept of any upgrades besides storage. Most people never use them. Still they think being upgradable is a desireable feature in computers. This fallacy was probably part of the reason for the regrettable demise of the Cube.
- Ars Technica on the problem that are zillions of login names and passwords. Personally I am lost without Safari's auto-fill feature and my Keychain at hand.
- What brand are you?, saving you millions in branding costs. I like the random feel about it. File under: anarchy/conspiracy.
- The Register's readers commenting on Universal's CD price cuts. The last two are fairly funny.
- Anti-spam strategies for blogs. It's not bad enough for me to care too much yet. But having Nr. 6 would be quite useful. I'm not in the mood for doing the tinkering myself and will wait for an update, though.
- Richard takes yet another personality test, based solely on your birthday. I couldn't resist and turned out to be: Beautiful but full of melancholy, attractive, very empathic, loves anything beautiful and tasteful, loves to travel, dreamer, restless, capricious, honest, can be influenced but is not easy to live with, demanding, good intuition, suffers in love but finds sometimes an anchoring partner. Not bad. I'll remind people of the first two, should the need arise.
- Looking at the inlay to The International Noise Conspiracy's Survival Sickness record, my answers to #1 Questionnaire are: a/b/b/a-c/d/b. Fun reading there.
