Ok. My dog is fat…well, not fat…but really, really oversized. I think I am going to have to buy this one just to get that fat-bastard to work out a bit.

Ok. It’s official. The Pope is going to hell.
THE Vatican has been accused of trying to cash in on the PopeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s words after it decided to impose strict copyright on all papal pronouncements.
For the first time all papal documents, including encyclicals, will be governed by copyright invested in the official Vatican publishing house, the Libreria Editrice Vaticana.
The edict covers Pope Benedict XVIÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first encyclical, which is to be issued this week amid huge international interest. The edict is retroactive, covering not only the writings of the present pontiff Ã¢â‚¬â€ as Pope and as cardinal Ã¢â‚¬â€ but also those of his predecessors over the past 50 years. It therefore includes anything written by John Paul II, John Paul I, Paul VI and John XXIII.
The decision was denounced yesterday for treating the PopeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s words as Ã¢â‚¬Å“saleable merchandiseÃ¢â‚¬Â and endangering the ChurchÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mission to Ã¢â‚¬Å“spread the Christian messageÃ¢â‚¬Â.
A Milanese publishing house that had issued an anthology containing 30 lines from Pope BenedictÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s speech to the conclave that elected him and an extract from his enthronement speech is reported to have been sent a bill for Ã¢â€šÂ¬15,000 (Ã‚Â£10,000 or $17,000). This was made up of 15 per cent of the cover price of each copy sold plus Ã¢â‚¬Å“legal expensesÃ¢â‚¬Â of Ã¢â€šÂ¬3,500.
It was brought to my attention that I forgot to post the link to the flash player used on this site that I blogged about awhile back. So, here is is: Audio Player. Thanks for the heads up, freeQ.
(ps, it also does auto enclosure tags for podcasting.)
I never used to like Spotlight on the Mac (tiger) but as I learn more about it, it gets better and better. Read the tip below from the Apple website and try the following searches I have tested and found to work in Spotlight:
If you want to narrow your search right off the bat, you can add a category when you type the term in the Search field. For example, if youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re looking for a song named Ã¢â‚¬Å“VertigoÃ¢â‚¬Â (by the band U2), thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s no sense in having Spotlight bring you a list of email messages from your ear doctor, right? So if you give Spotlight a hint as to what youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re looking for, you can get just songs as your Spotlight search results. HereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s how: Type Ã¢â‚¬Å“kind:musicÃ¢â‚¬Â (with no space in between or quotations), then add one space and type Ã¢â‚¬Å“VertigoÃ¢â‚¬Â (again, you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t need the quotes). So your search will look like this: kind:music Vertigo. Now it will only search songs, and youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll only get song results. Schweet!
Apple – Pro – Tip of the Week
I barely got my camera out and loaded for this one, but it was worth the hastle! Check out this little BMW car that passed my on my way to work this morning. It was a 2 seater, had a partial soft-top convertible top and the trunk (if you can call it that) was open to the inside of the car.
THIS IS NOT A PHOTOSHOP EDIT.
