Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

iPhone runs VIM

Ok, there’s more to the story than just this, but what caught my eye was the VIM tie-in.  For those of you who don’t know, VIM is “vi improved”, and vi is a visual editor used on unix systems.  It’s completely text-based, harkening back to the days of no mice and no graphics.  It’s extremely powerful, and I still use it daily to do text editing, manipulation, processing, etc.  I’ve had gvim (graphical vim) on my box forever, and rely on it.  To know that it can run on the iPhone makes me 1% closer to wanting one. 

To date, I’m about at 4% wanting one.  If the cost came down to $200 or so, I’d be at 80%.  If it supported ActiveSync (ie, if it supported Outlook Mobile Access – OMA – from exchange front end web servers) like so many other smart phones, I’d be at 95%.  I depend on my blackberry, and it securely syncs up all my email, contacts, calendar, etc wirelessly.  ActiveSync w/OMA does the same thing for non-blackberry PDAs.

So for the time being, I’ll have to be happy with my midpSSH client for my blackberry.  It lets me bounce off my internal blackberry enterprise server, encrypted across the RIM network, and ssh into internal servers @ work, so now I can truly fix those emergency situations without having to find a hotspot!


The David Blaine of Billiards

Never saw this guy before, don’t know who he is, but I’ve dubbed him the David Blaine of Billiards.  Or call it “Street Magic Pool”.  Doesn’t matter what it’s called, but these are some pretty neat tricks.  Thanks to Jen for the link.


147 run in Snooker 

Speaking of billiards, Jen also shared this fantastic video of a guy making a perfect 147-score run in snooker in about 5 minutes.  The guy is awesome.


Breakfast – it’s not just for breakfast anymore

I heard on the news recently that Kellogg’s has found more people eating it’s cereal at non-breakfast times, like for a late night snack or after-dinner treat, so they’re ramping up production of chocolate-flavored rice krispies or special K or something. So I decided to come up with the above tagline.  It’s mine.  I owns it.


New Dennys Menu girl

Well, she just doesn’t do it for me.

The new Denny's Menu girl

Compared to Tiffany, the old Denny’s menu girl, I mean.  I’m not saying this girl here is ugly or anything – her smile is nice, sure, and she’s bringing a GREAT tray of food, and she has that super weird grip on the coffee mug, and she can pour coffee without looking.  Not only that, she has a four foot long spike sticking out of her back (it’s an old war wound), but you can’t see it because she’s looking AT us instead of away.  The lady in the back who’s smiling sees it and is rather rude by laughing at it.

In case you forgot what Tiffany looks like, here’s a refresher.  See what I mean?

Tiffany from Denny's is hot


WHALLcats – Jaden version

I promised some more WHALLcats.  Here you go, but instead of cats (or dogs), it’s none other than Jaden!

LOLcats – Wolves version

And here’s one I made up just now.  It’s from a caption contest entry no-one entered.
