No! Yahoo! For! You!

It look like the more spare time I’ve got the less I’m updating. When I was reading for me end term exams, I updated daily, now the updates are only coming semi-daily. At least at the moment.

Thursday night I was out drinking beer, talking shit with people. It looks like most of the other students are happy with their end result of the project and the oral exam. I’m not sure if I should be happy or crushing stuff just yet, because I have no idea how I did. Most of the results were posted at the university, but I couldn’t find the results from my course anywhere. I could of course e-mail my supervisor and ask, but if I do that I’ll never check my mail-box ever again. I have to talk to him about my upcoming diploma some time next week anyway, so I can ask him then. I’ve got a bad feeling about the result of the oral exam, I just suck at oral exams, no matter what the subject is.

Yahoo! Weather has started to fill their HTML code with all kinds of strange comments to make it hard for guys like me who is ripping content from their site. Because of this, I was forced to remove the weather box from the left hand menu. Don’t blame me, blame the bad, bad people at Yahoo. Here are some example comments that have surfaced:

<!- get in the fetal position..whazzap? -> <!- 22 isn’t yahoo a great company to work for? -> <!- whats goin on ->

Either they are doing it on purpose, or some coder over at Yahoo has gone haywire.
