FRIDAY NIGHT LYRICS

Jailbreak
by Thin Lizzy

Tonight theres gonna be a jailbreak
Somewhere in this town
See me and the boys we dont like it
So were getting up and going down

Hiding low looking right to left
If you see us coming I think its best
To move away do you hear what I say
From under my breath

Tonight theres gonna be a jailbreak
Somewhere in the town
Tonight theres gonna be a jailbreak
So dont you be around

Dont you be around

Tonight theres gonna be trouble
Some of us wont survive
See the boys and me mean business
Bustin out dead or alive

I can hear the hound dogs on my trail
All hell breaks loose, alarm and sirens wail
Like the game if you lose
Go to jail

Tonight theres gonna be a jailbreak
Somewhere in the town
Tonight theres gonna be a jailbreak
So dont you be around

Tonight theres gonna trouble
Im gonna find myself in
Tonight theres gonna be a jailbreak
So woman stay with a friend

You know its safer

Breakout!

Tonight theres gonna be a breakout
Into the city zones
Dont you dare to try and stop us
No one could for long

Searchlight on my trail
Tonights the night all systems fail
Hey you good lookin female
Come here!

Tonight theres gonna be a jailbreak
Somewhere in the town
Tonight theres gonna be a jailbreak
So dont you be around

Tonight theres gonna be trouble
Im gonna find myself in
Tonight theres gonna be trouble
So woman stay with a friend
PIC OF THE DAY


It's 2am and it is still 81 degrees in my room. The air will get fixed Monday, but it looks like it will be a weekend full of taking it easy and sweating.

MORTGAGE WATCH

I just paid my mortgage again tonight. I know that many of you have been asking about my amortization schedule. Well for my first payment I tossed in an extra $300. Contractually I have 29 years, 11 months. Realistically, that extra $300 knocked two months off my payment and I will have the loan paid off in 29 years, 9 months. Of course, I'm going to kick up that principal payment once I get settled at my job better. But this should be a lesson to all y'all about how to pay off a mortgage and avoid years of costly interest.

PIC OF THE DAY


Crisis of leadership solved. As usual, half the battle was showing up sober, the rest was just giving direction with authority. You may be the Dark Lord, but your evil will always be limited by your irrationality.
WAR OF THE FUTURE

It's easy to get comfortable in the delightful cyberworld that we have created for ourselves. However, remember that civilization holds on by a thread for the most part. Just ask the Estonians...

They also knew from experience that "if there are fights on the street, there are going to be fights on the Internet," said Hillar Aarelaid, the director of Estonia's Computer Emergency Response Team. After all, for people here the Internet is almost as vital as running water, used routinely to vote, file their taxes, and, with their cellphones, to shop or pay for parking.

What followed was what some here describe as the first war in cyberspace, a three-week battle that forced the Estonian authorities to defend their small country from a data flood they say was set off by orders from Russia or ethnic Russian sources in retaliation for the removal of the statue. There are still minor disruptions.


Read the article. It's interesting to see to what extent things can go awry when a nation puts their mind to the work of Tondar the Destroyer.
