ring, ring

My mobile phone is set to a tone that sounds like a telephone bell ringing. Thus,

Ca: Sarah, while you were away your phone rang. I mean, I think it was yours. It sounded like a real phone!
me: Yep, that's mine.

at small group-
phone: *ring!*
me: Oh, sorry!
Chris: Your phone actually rings?!?
me: *grin*

Both of my parents are on facebook, which is not an issue for me. Actually, a whole lot of my rather large (extended) family is on facebook.

My father works with international students at the university. Naturally, most of his students are on facebook, so he decided he should be on it as well. I was looking at my dad's profile this evening, and thought, "you know, I bet he has more facebook friends than me. Let me check." He does. It makes me laugh, even though I totally expected this. He even has more than my brother, which I do consider impressive, since my brother is ridiculously social. (Shocker, he takes after my dad despite any protests he may make).

This all reminded me of conversations that I had with him a while ago when he was first getting set up.

Dad: People keep friending me! And then they post things on my wall! What am I supposed to do with this?

Dad: Just so you know, I have facebook set to my default page on the internet now, so I remember to look at it. Students keep writing on my wall! And I feel like I shouldn't ignore them!


I'm not sure if it's still his default, but I imagine that he likes hearing from his students who have gone back to their home countries or gotten jobs in different parts of the States.

(Also, a link on his wall led me to the web page that he set up for his students and American volunteers. I'm in one of the photos, despite my pointing out that I'm not one of his students. Hahaha!
Dad: Did you go see my website? Did you see your picture? It's a good picture of you!)

My brother sent me a link to this article with this commentary:
The Aussies are making new robo-soldiers!!! Fleeeeeeeeeee--* akka-akka-akka-akka-BOOM *

"G'DAY : : WE AH' THE WOHLLABY DEYTHBOHT CORPS : : YO' FLEYSH QUOSHI-ENT IS ABOHVE THA CURRENT MANDATOHRY ALLOW'BLE LEEMIT OF ZEROH PEHCENT : : YOU SHALL DOI !!! DOI, DOI, DOI !!!


This is an actual quote from the article:
The government wants to develop an "intelligent and fully autonomous system" capable of carrying out dangerous surveillance missions.

So... I already pretty much objected to A.I. (I'm half-convinced that my computer at work is already trying to make my life harder, I don't need ones that can actually decide to do that actively).

In this case I must ask the question: do these people not watch/read science fiction? This is going to end badly!

mood: Photobucket adding "learn how to survive a nuclear holocaust" to my "to do" list.

at home! I almost can't believe it! So, I changed the colors of my weblog. Also, but not in relation to, I made bread today! I feel so productive!

Apparently I can't just stick the link from my photo page at ofoto.com on here anymore and have the pictures show up. Any ideas?
