The most surprising thing about _Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle_ — besides the fact that it’s actually a [pretty good movie] — is how subversively it plays with cultural stereotypes. All the characters in the movie are exaggerated, one-dimensional stereotypes _except_ for Harold and Kumar, who are themselves quite multifacted, realistically portrayed, average [...]
These are the posts from July 2004
It’s been a bit less than a year since I decided to rip off [Kottke's] idea of [remaindered links] by way of my “Reading” sidebar category. For me, it was a convienient (read: lazy) way to quickly publish links to interesting articles and bits of flotsam from the Internet Crap Backbone without having to really [...]
It seems that domain servers the world-wide-web-round have finally agreed to point people’s [web browsers] to the appropriate [server], allowing them to see the new [pithy homepage] of beltzner.ca. Further, after doing a bit of investigation into [postfix], I was able to figure out why email was bouncing, and my new ever-generous [sysadmin] was quick [...]

1. Open a file browser and file the IMAPMail directory in your Thunderbird profile.
2. Go to the folder matching your account name, verify that you have both mbx and msf [...]
Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, _I, Feelafel_ is reborn as a stronger, and newer entity. It didn’t take 500 years (although it sure felt like it) but the ever-generous and kind [Mike Shaver] managed to pick up the hosting duties for this domain when the previous provider, [Colossus.net], suddenly dropped off the face [...]
So, when Dave and his friend Chance told me that there was a really _classic_ Canada Day BBQ available for crashing, I figured “_What the hell …_” and decided to go along.
Now, being a naive and trusting fool, I assumed that there would be _food_ at this BBQ. It turns out, though, that the [...]
While I don’t delude myself into thinking that there’s any reader out there who’s so desperate for my latest issuance of _bon mots_ that he or she keeps my page loaded in a browser tab set to refresh every 30 seconds, I do think that I should make apologies for the rather conspicuous and [...]
