@practicingEA #BigData #forrtttj Whatcha mean by "is anybody actually doing something?"? Entire #EDW #Hadoop #analytics mkt is "something"

10 hours ago

@rh_forrester #forrtttj No. It's shorthand for "semantic interoperability," which is universal requirements for any integration effort.

10 hours ago

@practicingEA #forrtttj Yeah, the Semantic Web buzz/interest keeps oscillating. I do a a Semantic Web article every few years. To stay up

10 hours ago

#forrtttj #entarch I've given up on the ranking of trends. We always live in a swarming field of trends that, like bees, buzz & tango

10 hours ago

@practicingEA #forrtttj # Top trend? Let's see, #Hadoop ? Nah...tablets? Getting warm. Social? Almost. App Internet? It's cloud-centricity

@aleksb6 #forrtttj I love violent agreements. It's like a happy marriage. Soft emotional violence is the spice.

Of course the "vacation effect" on your mood wears off quickly once you're home. Vacations don't usually impact your quotidian circumstances

11 hours ago

Also, when the critic is actually stepping on your moccasins, that's when the proverbial swift kick may be highly warranted.

11 hours ago

Easiest way to weather criticism is to remind self that the critic hasn't walked the proverbial mile in your moccasins. Explaining futile.

I'll try to be gentle here, but the "50 most beautiful people on Capitol Hill" would scarcely rate a second glance walking on Penn Ave.

@Dale_Vile "Intrinsically" is right. I'm simply motivated by the need to educate & inform myself and share my thoughts. And have fun.

It's important to stick to your daily reading regimen, regardless of your workload. Your work will suffer if you slack & grow uninformed.

I'm thinking the uber-abstraction layer for #Hadoop cloud analytics evolving toward combo of MapReduce, SOA, REST, & Semantic Web.

28 Jul

@merv I guess that offense would warrant I be put on DOUBLE-SECRET PROBATION.

28 Jul

@merv There's still a crazy notion goin' round that tweeting is time-intensive. It's the opposite. It's like breathing in and out.

28 Jul

@merv Remember the role of "road trip" in "Animal House"? Tweets are like an impromptu momentary getaway when the craziness comin' on down!

28 Jul

@merv I tweet to insert a breath before launching into all the craziness. It's like an "here we go again" aside to a co-located colleague.

28 Jul

Midsummer's nightdreams are often indistinguishable from daydreams for me, because heat/humidity keep me awake anyway.

Listening to Ramones "Swallow My Pride" from "Leave Home." Check out Johnny & Dee Dee vox-harmonizing Joey. Sparkles over the guitar-buzzsaw

27 Jul

Listening to Ramones "I Wanna Be Well" from "Rocket To Russia." Excellent specimen of their gift for funny & inspired lyrical stupidity.

27 Jul

Lack of definition of the prime use cases for Big Data is one of the biggest issues confronting anyone trying to articulate the biz benefits

Big Data isn't just lots & lotsa data. It's lots & lotsa opportunities & issues associated with getting our heads around lots & lotsa data

27 Jul

Listening to Grizzly Bear "While You Wait For the Other" from "Veckatimest." Thrilling vocal sinuosity & open-ended melodicism. Not freeform

27 Jul

Potentially, entire pop of Planet Earth & entire behaviorl data set, transaction history, & profile of each person, in realtime + predictive

27 Jul

Big Data. I'd like us all to start thinking of it as "whole-pop analytics": power of deep drill into 360-degree records of entire population

27 Jul

Read emails! Ha! Read implies leisurely contemplation. We impatiently and semi-consciously power-wolf and speed-shred and discard them.

27 Jul

Listening 2 Enya "Caribbean Blue" frm "Paint th Sky W/ Stars." One of her most exquisite waltzes. Picture U & Astaire (or Ginger) on Cloud 9

27 Jul

Vacation over. Back to work. Back to fielding a steady stream of #Hadoop inquiries, both from vendor & user customers.

26 Jul

Saw "Friends with Benefits." So-so rom-com. Liked Patricia Clarkson & Richard Jenkins supporting roles. Woody Harrelson miscast as gay.

Has anybody attempted a study to measure whether Facebook-friending a mere acquaintance has a positive impact on mutual feelings?

24 Jul

Facebook keeps suggesting I friend Vint Cerf. I have indeed met and spoken with him. He has never accepted my friend request. Why should he?

24 Jul

Facebook suggested I friend Larry Ellison. I've never actually met him, though I sat directly behind him a last year's OpenWorld. Good enuff

24 Jul

Wi-Fi & its discontents. Increasingly, they're becoming not-so-hotspots. Plug in that 4G baby and let's get this party started!

24 Jul

Containerized data centers. Your entire IT infrastructure is evolving into appliances nested into & networked with other appliances.

24 Jul

Database appliances are key to ramping data-centric world where fewer corp IT groups can justify grooming & keeping pure DBMS specialists

24 Jul

The world over, people aspire 2 Western standards of living & seem 2 include greasy fatty sugary foods in that standard. I saw that in Indo

24 Jul

Listened to Pink Floyd "Piper at Gates of Dawn" LP in its entirety. It's OK but Barrett not Lennon-grade genius. Post-Syd Floyd superior

24 Jul

Why do people everywhere tolerate the congestion, pollution, & crime that come w/ dense urbanization? Cuz phys proximity is wealth-conducive

24 Jul

Accept the car but not the congestion. Would like 2 see combo of zipcar & carpool with on-demand ride provisioning brokered by social/trust

24 Jul

Prediction: GOP ticket in 2012 will be Romney-Bachmann. Another prediction: Obama-Biden will win 55-45. Also: big issue will be US tax code

24 Jul

Relieved to be resuming our weekly exercise schedule. Yoga class later in the morning. Don't feel obligated to eat out of hospitality.

24 Jul

I found book "Accidental Billionaires" about Facebook's genesis a tad depressing: chockfull of get-rich & get-laid nerd/frat-boy self-regard

24 Jul

Listening to Enya's "Amarantine" LP (2005) in its entirety. I'll understand if you don't get into her. But she stones me to my soul.

24 Jul

Listening to Deep Purple "Spacetruckin" from their best. Indelibly ingrained in my early 70s pimply-faced junior high schooler memories

24 Jul

"National Zoo: Panda watch ends in false pregnancy " (http://bit.ly/rpmM8J) JK--Screw zoos. Maybe accept some species dont take 2 captivity

24 Jul

Listening to Pink Floyd "One of These Days" from "Meddle." The space jam that first hooked me on them.

23 Jul

I wrapped my recent globetrot by reading The Onion's compendium "Our Dumb World" on the plane home. The France section is classic.

23 Jul

RT @kexpplaylist #kexp North American Scum by LCD Soundsystem from Sound of Silver JK--Nice to be back in my No. Am. pond with fellow scum!

23 Jul

dmenningervr David Menninger Interesting development: Amazon invests in @ParAccel http://is.gd/EuJhk7 #Cloud #Bigdata

7 Jul

Some people "protect" their tweets. I think I might do that too. Except I'll laminate mine, like a menu at Denny's.

23 Jul

It feels like several dozen reporters left me messages while I was away. Now to figure out which might still want to chat with me.

23 Jul

Now we're in the return-home jetlag jag. At least Egidia & I have half a weekend left to space out in the privacy of our home.

23 Jul

New blogpost: "Please Eat: Nine Triple-Haikus I Wrote on Vacation in Indonesia July 4-23 2011" (http://bit.ly/oYynZK)

23 Jul

Sad 2 see Borders liquidate. Spent many a happy time in college in Ann Arbor browsing at original Borders. And I love the one near my home

23 Jul

@BouncingThots Nope. No plans 2 visit Brunei. Sounds like an interesting place, though. But I'm home now. That was my vacation for this year

23 Jul

@BouncingThots Brunei richest country in world? They are tiny. Their sultan holds most of their wealth. Perhaps richest per capita.

23 Jul

@BouncingThots Borneo is a large island that includes parts of Indonesia and Malaysia, and all of Brunei. You're thinking of the latter.

23 Jul

Indonesia has so many delicious tropical fruits that I've never heard of. For example, dragonfruit is kinda like purple kiwi.

23 Jul

Borneo. I love the place. People from Jakarta say "there's nothing to see there." Au contraire! Gorgeous tropical forest. Nice people!

23 Jul

I watched a lot of 24x7 global newschannels while in Indonesia. Big surprise? Al Jazeera is a top-notch and very balanced newschannel.

23 Jul

Indonesians are even more obsessed by smartphones than Americans. Their roads are busier. That scares me. Peeps there also txt while driving

23 Jul

RIP Amy Winehouse. Just because her early demise was no surprise doesn't mean it wasn't sad. A very public meltdown.

23 Jul

Watched "The Hustler" (1961) coming on home on Korean Airlines. Great gripping method acting. Now I'm a Piper Laurie fan.

23 Jul

RT @nickgoode: Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and now Amy Winehouse: music stars who died at 27 from drugs

23 Jul

Good to be home. Was telling everybody how crazy Jakarta traffic is. But Beltway greeted us with bumper-to-bumper. No refuge from congestion

23 Jul

Had a cool leg dip in a "fish spa" in Bogor, West Java, Indonesia. Lotsa little fishes eating the dead skin. I have plenty for all.

20 Jul

Twitter follow-me request from generic-sounding name w/pretty woman holding lotsa cash & emitting famous-people quotes. Ah Twitter classic!

18 Jul

@strukhoff "Short hop" 2 Manila from Jakarta? More like a hop, skip, & a swim thru jellyfish-infested waters. Thanks. Would luv 2 but can't

18 Jul

@LoraineLawson Respectfully disagree. Twitter's the worst with the "personal branding" overload. Nauseating self-promotion.

18 Jul

@alissajanderson Not yet. I'll download the podcast and listen to it later. Love NPR All Songs Considered.

18 Jul

@0_h_r_1 I'll bet. My mind is already boggled from the carbon & monoxide here on the otherwise green beautiful shore of the South China Sea

18 Jul

@arpranata Ya. Aku di Singkawang sekarang. Kami ke Pontianak siang ini. Ada teman di beberapa kota sini.

18 Jul

Glad to see that more smart Indonesian kids have right idea. Get your college education in Indonesia. Stay. Get rich here. Build businesses

18 Jul

Another Google+ feature I like: visual drag-and-drop people from directory into social circles: quick, clear, easy, fun.

18 Jul

Google+ feature I like: being able 2 edit post after I've published, without having 2 delete/republish. This is 4 persnickety people like me

18 Jul

What I'm saying is that socials are a dime a dozen. We are accumulating more socials than can shake sticks at. Keep 'em all but roll 'em up.

17 Jul

Second comment on Google+: Wish I could use it to aggregate all my posts across all socials. I'm using TweetDeck in front of FB for that.

17 Jul

I'm in Google+. My first comment is that the interface is too similar to Facebook. I prefer multisocial dashboarding--a la TweetDeck

17 Jul

Apparently, Angelenos dodged a bullet. At one point, there'd a been a wee chance of traffic going from quite unbearable to extremely awful.

17 Jul

Back in my Ann Arbor days, someone said (long after the fact) that Phi Beta Kappa invited me to join. I never saw the invite. My life story.

17 Jul

Seeing "The Social Network" & reading "Accidental Billionaires" reminds me how un-Harvard I am. Never bought into elitist clubjoining.

17 Jul

Aduh!...Apa itu?....Pilih bahasa?...Bahasa Inggris (Amerika Serikat)...there we go. Will review Google+ terms. Probably accept in a sec.

17 Jul

Good that Google+ has Bahasa Indonesia interface. But I'm not fluent enough 2 understand the terms in that language. Will wait till I'm home

17 Jul

No, I haven't even begun to try to explain #Hadoop or #NextBestAction. I don't want to try people's patience.

17 Jul

Been following international business news via cable TV from Indonesia. Not a single high-tech story has bubbled to surface in past 2 weeks

17 Jul

People in Indonesia comment "it's hot here." I say it's hotter at home now. They say "food here is spicy." I say we have red hot barbecue!

17 Jul

My wife has trouble explaining to people what I do for a living. She says "telecommunications." I say "computer consultant." People nod.

17 Jul

Indonesian streets are a scooter culture. This is especially true in smaller cities such as Singkawang. For pedestrians, it can be harrowing

17 Jul

Had a fine day in west Borneo. Went to mountaintop overlooking South China Sea. Sunny, clear. Great view of Singkawang & distant Sarawak

17 Jul

Dear Twitterers: Quit using yr profiles 2 tell us what great people U are & how much you love your families. Let your tweets do the talking.

14 Jul

Australia is becoming an integral component of the Asian economy. Many Indonesians mention it. Many travel there. Many love Sydney.

14 Jul

Follow-somebody decisions on Twitter are predictive analyses. U sense whether they're likely 2 start or keep on producing interesting stuff

14 Jul

Hey quotebots, if you must spew secondhand wisdom, please don't include nuggets from Oprah. That just compounds the bandwidth waste issue

14 Jul

Me on slide 70 "From Semantic Platforms to Semantic Apps" (slidesha.re/k1lzfg). Still agree w/statement. They used funny foto from ages ago

14 Jul

someecards I can't wait for Google Plus to reunite me with everyone I blocked on Facebook. some.ly/oNHFL6

11 Jul

It's noisy in a rapidly developing economy. I define "noisy" as "always something new being constructed in your neighborhood."

14 Jul

Jakarta's professional class often compare their city to Singapore--and wish the Indonesian capital could adopt the latter's best features.

14 Jul

You think Starbucks is expensive in its home country? It's even more expensive--mahal sekali!!--in the land that gave "java" its name.

14 Jul

Indonesia's primary econ strengths are rich natural resources, highly entrepreneurial culture, and multicultural social cohesion.

14 Jul

Indonesia's primary econ vulnerabilities are overreliance on one export commodity (oil) and underinvestment in infrastructure (transport).

14 Jul

Western pop on radio anchors my head in space-time when overseas. I realize I'm still in present, not all that far from home. Same planet

14 Jul

There's tipping point where personal communications medium transitions from the status of tool to that of ball&chain. Email approaching that

14 Jul

A lot of people are connecting with me through some social I've never heard of and don't recall signing up for. BranchOut? Wazzat?

14 Jul

Our friends Wid & Tissa are married professors who live very professorial life. Comfy house bursting with books. Great informal chitchat

13 Jul

Amazing how pervasively Facebook & Twitter have pervaded Asian society. In cafes, everybody checks on smartphones. Global phenom, obviously

13 Jul

Had a good morning stroll in Kebayoran, a well-to-do neighborhood near Jakarta's central govt area. Sleepy tree-lined streets. Bustle nearby

13 Jul

I alternate between global financial news and "Animal Planet." Watching monkeys in the trees brings it all into perspective.

13 Jul

I've watched a bit more Bloomberg business news on vacation then I do in real life. Their on-air personalities seem to be in a mad rush.

13 Jul

I've used the Internet over a 3G network in Jakarta, and it was a bit slow. But I'm using a superfast broadband landline now.

13 Jul

Enjoying my lazy days in and around Jakarta. Lots of great friends and we've had many excellent meals. Fly to Borneo on Friday.

13 Jul

Had a relaxing day. Started with an excellent workout at a country club south of Jakarta. Pilates instructor challenged us. It paid off.

11 Jul

That was one intense, albeit brief, summer downpour. "Summer"? Wait, whoa, Jim, you're in the tropics. That was dry-season downpour!

10 Jul

Loved the boardwalk stroll this morning on Jakarta waterfront in Ancol. Families out in droves for Sunday fun. Reminds of Hains Pt in DC

10 Jul

If you're in love with those "becak" pedicabs of old Jakarta, U may be sad 2 learn they've been banned. They're a traffic nightmare.

10 Jul

There's been a boom in mega-mall constuction in and around greater Jakarta. The "big boxes" are the malls themselves: multistory emporiums!

10 Jul

But I must admit that I'm always happy to get out of Jakarta and explore the lush beauty of Java as a whole. Stunningly fertile landscape.

10 Jul

Maybe this is macho guy thing, but I pride myself on internalizing Jakarta's streetplan better than my longtime-Jakarta-resident better half

10 Jul

Terima kasih website. Tapi tak mau kupon hari ini atau hari lain. Mau low latency saja. Cepat-cepat!!

7 Jul

I recall July 1988. My 1st visit to Jakarta. Jetlagged & nauseated. Wrote Network World column in my head in bed. My ICIT daze. Jason was 1

7 Jul

One of the interesting things about social networking on vacation is that it gives U the odd feeling you're lurking on your life back home.

7 Jul

That was Night 3 of the "Your Body Clock Couldn't Get More Twisted Jetlag Chronicles." Among other discoveries: Jakarta does in fact sleep.

7 Jul

"Obama’s Young Mother Abroad" (nyti.ms/enONgN) JK--Brilliant balanced sensitive article on Ann Dunham. Writer knows Indonesian culture

7 Jul

Had most awesome deep-tissue massage today, plus haircut. Egidia had all that plus pedicure. Same place. Jakarta salons are multi-specialty.

7 Jul

Every morning, I make a point of glancing at the local Jakarta newspapers. My Indonesian is atrocious. I try to glean basics & add vocab.

6 Jul

Jakarta rewards serendipity. So much multilayered street commerce. Peddlers, booths, tokos, supermarts, etc. A concrete jumble. Berbelanja

6 Jul

What I've learned from ample business travel is never to let jetlag add to your anxieties. Chill & roll with it. When sleep comes, it comes

6 Jul

In spite of jetlag, enjoyed listening to the early morning buildup of street noise in inner Jakarta. Peddlers, scooters, construction, dogs

6 Jul

Still jetlagged in Jakarta. Got up at 2:30am. Read Vanity Fair on Wills & Kate, Silvio Berlusconi, & Sultan of Brunei's bro. Wrote 2 poems.

6 Jul

Setting up a Skype call. Have shown the relatives both kids' Facebook pages. I'm tweeting. Social networking is everywhere in Jakarta too.

6 Jul

I remain impressed by how calmly Jakarta drivers navigate the tight spaces & never-ending congestion. No fenderbenders. No birdflipping

6 Jul

Been 7 years since I've visited Jakarta. Same crazy traffic. Though I do see improvements: badly needed highway express ramps downtown.

6 Jul

Uneventful trip to Jakarta. Enjoyed inflight movies on KAL. I caught an oldie, "Sunset Blvd" (1952), & new, "Barney's Version." Both great!

6 Jul

My daughter says I've hooked her on #Hadoop. On the word. Great, as long as she doesn't repeat it constantly. Unlike her daddy.

4 Jul

Computer tips? If any of your tips involve a dab or squirt of WD-40, then I got a tip for you, buddy!

4 Jul

Good advice: listen to your body. Unless, of course, you're simply farting all the time. Then listen to people all around you & open window.

4 Jul

Now following @Cloris_Leachman , @ValerieHarper , & Barbara_Eden. Sitcom stars all, in their day. Cloris has Oscar too ("Last Picture Show")

4 Jul

Now following @Ruth_A_Buzzi , but not in same way that Arte Johnson's old man did on Laugh-In. She packs a mean wallop with that handbag!!!

4 Jul

RT @kexpplaylist #kexp This Land Is Your Land from The Asch Recordings Vol.1 by Woody Guthrie JK--Sad that there is no film footage of Woody

4 Jul

RT @kexpplaylist #kexp Sunshine Superman by Donovan JK--"I know a beach where baby it never ends." My fave is Parang Tritis, Jawa Tengah.

4 Jul

Looking forward to see our family and friends in Jakarta, Bandung, and Singkawang...and points in between. Sampai bertemu!

4 Jul

"Clinton Calls on Obama Not to 'Blink' on Debt-Ceiling Deal" (http://bit.ly/kEaCdn) JK--Blink, or you'll get "deer-in-headlights" syndrome.

4 Jul

@stoweboyd The exclamation point is an extra dose of caffeine when you've already consumed several cups of joe.

4 Jul

Wayne Rogers said 70% of NFL players file personal bankruptcy within 4 years of retiring. That true? If so, pathetic. They pull in millions

4 Jul

US Independence Day. I wonder what the temp & humidity were in Philadelphia on this date in 1776. No visible sweat stains on Decl of Indep.

4 Jul

PJ Harvey video doing "The Glorious Land" from Jools Holland show (http://youtu.be/h1lFM1K8R1s). One of highlights of "Let England Shake."

4 Jul

@nyyrajvggranhre You could make same argument about, say, a "data" architect. Where do you draw the line btwn that & other infrastructure?

4 Jul

Neither of us sleeps well right before a trip. I chalk that up to the nerves that come from making sure we've done every task on to-do lists

4 Jul

A heavy overhanging odorific summer evening storm that refuses to burst. Just grumbles and rumbles like a lazy old bastard.

3 Jul

Willpower is the power of inertia, habit, & persistence in faces of countervailing ext and/internal resistance. Power of carryon followthru

3 Jul

Rare Sunday without yoga class. Bally's has canceled all classes for holiday weekend. Still doing my cardio & strength. Will do yoga solo.

3 Jul

My boy is home. @jasonkobielus . Good to have him for a day or so before we go off to visit his Mom's family in Jakarta.

3 Jul

"Evolution machine: Genetic engineering on fast forward" (http://bit.ly/imZvja) JK--A mutation accelerator.

3 Jul

Yingluck Shinawatra. Thailand elects first woman prime minister. And an attractive woman at that. Media will swarm around her.

3 Jul

Watching Emily Yellin, author of "Your Call Is Not That Important To Us," on CBS Sunday Morning. #CRM rage (http://bit.ly/9ijJ5T)

3 Jul

If charges are dismissed, will DSK be the French political equivalent of the Phoenix....or Humpty Dumpty?

3 Jul

A totally temperate-zone thing 2 do: chek weather forecast. Its dumb when check, say, Jakarta. How's the weather? Still warm humid tropical?

3 Jul

Time of year when the weather in Washington DC USA not appreciably different from Jakarta. Actually, Jakarta slightly cooler, less humid

3 Jul

And here's the better, China-inspired piece I wrote in Monaco: "IDEOGRAM//Tidy the man/inside the/Chinese ideo… (cont) http://deck.ly/~R5rku

Pere Ubu's "Dub Housing" cover is awesome urban scene. Simply a nighttime apartment building w/ tiny silhouette of guy waving. That's David

2 Jul

P. Ubu "Drinking Wine Spodyody" from "Dub Housing" (http://youtu.be/Ujl3dlxcwqE). Not same song as w/ S. McGhee "Drinkin Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee"

2 Jul

Watching video of Bob Dylan "Theme to 'Charles in Charge'" (http://youtu.be/D-zLxLHG9Vw)

2 Jul

Watching video of Neil Young & Bruce Springsteen "Whip My Hair" (http://youtu.be/N799R_mDx_U)

2 Jul

Watching video to Willow Smith "Whip My Hair " (http://youtu.be/ymKLymvwD2U)

2 Jul

Jimmy Fallon majored in computer science in college & had IT suppt jobs. That's why his "Nic Burns Your Company's Computer Guy" rang so true

2 Jul

I netted out #Hadoop for my cousin, who's got doctorate but not in IT: "Hadoop is approach to building very large databases on the Internet"

2 Jul

@VanessaAlvarez1 Another plus is that they're all given lifetime free pass to Lovers Lanes throughout the country. What could happen?

2 Jul

USA almost 235 years old. I graduated highschool in Bicentennial Year. Do the math. Been a "grown-up" forever.

2 Jul

I've determined the one type of wine that I never truly care for. Chianti. Not sure why that is. I like reds & heavy ones. Odd aftertaste

2 Jul

"Larry Crowne." Features best performance ever by George Takei playing George Takei doing a George Takei impersonation under an assumed name

2 Jul

Still unclear on diffs btwn NBC, MSNBC, & CNBC brands in TV programming. They should call them NBC- Entrtainmt, -News, & -Junk, respectively

2 Jul

People clipped locks of hair from Lincoln's dead head across street from Ford's Theater & kept as souvenirs? From assassin8d prez? Obscene!

2 Jul

I used to default to burgers & fries when I needed tummy-yummy food fast to-go. Now I'm defaulting 2 healthy subs & baked chips. No McD 4 me

2 Jul

Tons of summer sequel CGI comicbook cinematic seatfiller fodder material at megaplexes everywhere. "HadoopMan"? Hey, Spielberg, let's talk!

2 Jul

I wrote a Monaco-inspired poem in Monte Carlo (ie, casino n'brhood). Wrote China-inspired piece in Monaco-ville ("capital"hood). No idea why

2 Jul

Monaco. I went there on biz trip 7 years ago. Absolutely fell in love with the place. I'll move there as soon as my net worth grows 1000x.

2 Jul

Royal wedding in Monaco. They have a lovely cathedral. Albert's parents were married there. Why not there?

2 Jul

In-studio infomercials where stationary people hold hand mics or wear lavalier or headset mics. Is the concept of the boom so difficult?

2 Jul

Somebody named "James Kobielus" keeps spamming me tons of useless crap. I'm going to ignore "James Kobielus." I advise you to do likewise.

2 Jul
