Why do I hate qmail?

Well, the reasons go on and on. But here's a damn good one:

root@midhae# ps auxww | grep qmail | wc -l
50

There is no reason for it to be spawning that many qmail-smtpd processes. It's not sending anything it's stuck on. It's not sending anything, in fact. It's just spawning processes because it feels like it.

My hate for qmail, it does grow.

This is sad, but not unexpected: Hamas breaks off Abu Mazen talks

A spokesman for Hamas, Abdelaziz al-Rantissi, told the BBC that the prime minister's promise had opened the door for Israel to kill Palestinians at will, and that Hamas had been left with no choice but to continue fighting Israel.

On a related note, I like how CNN was posting, "BREAKING NEWS! Hamas ends cease-fire talks with Palestinian Authority, rejects calls for end to intifada. Details to come." but I could find the details on BBC. Good show guys.

in the not so news.

As part of my news reading routine, I read the Weekly Standard, since that's been pretty well shown to be one of the mouthpieces of the Bush Administration. I'd like to dissect this article, since it made me nearly laugh out loud.

Now, why did I waste time counter-arguing what has been shown time and time again to be a rag that loves to discuss matters with little merit, and falsely (I'll call upon their article about how the american dollar being weak is somehow good for the economy*)? Because this essay will likely be the basis of Bush's justification speech later (today?). Keep this in mind when he gives it.
