Thingies

I have issues with titling entires. It feels somehow pretentious like those fuckos who use "'tis" scattered throughout their "pieces". Remember kids, stream of consciousness is difficult to pull off. It's kind of like Acid - not for everyone. It takes a special kind of person to be able to successfully use the conventions of stream of consciousness writing. Which is why there aren't a billion people successfully ripping off Ulysses. Oh they TRY.. man how they try...

I'm updating this journal instead of just clamping down and finishing this report. Becuase I don't know how many more ways I can find to say is "the main thing they noticed about the software over the course of 21 days is how god awfully slow it made their computer because its got more system drain than an entire OS, and these are sweepstakes and freebie site kind of people. Points people. People who will answer those 15 minute surveys for that $50 Wal-Mart gift card. These are people using the dirtiest computers known to man and then getting annoyed that they're getting NOTICES about all the spyware they have...not annoyed about the spyware itself."

I'm an advocate of consumer education in the computer realm, especially online security. Unfortunately, I don't really LIKE the consumers I'm advocating for.
