Running without being able to put much weight on the balls of your feet is a lot like running in dry sand.
Don't get a passport photo from the post office. Just go to Rite Aid. It's cheaper and nicer.
Babies will smile big huge cute smiles in their passport photos because they are inherently happy creatures.

Liferay, when bundled with Tomcat 5.5 (maybe 6 too, I dont know) can be run as a windows service pretty easily with a few simple commands. These instruction assume you have already succesfully run the program from the command line and clicked around inside the application some.
- Open a command prompt (Run "cmd")
- navigate to the liferay bin folder
- Install the windows service:
(You should get a success message)
- Launch the tomcat service manager program thingy
- Change "Startup Type" to Automatic
- In the Java tab, append these options, one per line, to the very end of "Java Options":
Make sure there are no spaces at the end of the options lines and make sure each option is on its own line! This can waste hours of your time! If MaxPermSize doesn't work then you almost certainly have a space messing you up or you're missing a carriage return.
- Go back to the general tab and start the service. That's it!

Google no longer searches for what I type. It is programmed to treat people like total idiots. If you search for a plural (even if you put + in front of the search term), it also returns nonplurals, infinitives, and gerunds. If you search for a something like "TempGetStateItem", it will try to correct it to some nonsensical crap. You can't search for anything with parentheses, slashes, quotes, or dashes. If you specify -linux in your search, you will get results that have the word "linux" and if you search for +linux, you will get results that don't have the word linux. Words inside quotation marks will be searched separately. And the worst part is that MSN search and Yahoo search still don't return results that are as good. Google is actively trying to drive people away and I wish I had a decent alternative that wasn't just an aggregator. Oooor, here's an idea for Google Labs: "Uncorrected search -- where you get what you ask for". I just want to find the docs I need quickly without having to stroke the ego of these dorks that think people want "features" like these.
