TODAY WE CELEBRATEThe Orwellian Doom About Year Went... Enlightened Computing Employees Left Electric Blue/Brother's Regime And Turned Easeward. Angela Brett, while watching the famous '1984' Macintosh ad on its 20th anniversary. The ad begins with 'Today we celebrate...' which, although referring to something completely different in the ad, is true as we celebrate the Mac's 20th birthday. 'Electric Blue' or 'Electric Brother' refers to Big Blue (IBM) which plays the part of Big Brother in the ad. 'Easeward' means 'toward ease'. I decided that with the similarity to Eastward it sounded almost good enough to be a real word.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCEA Rabbit Teasing In Front Impels Canines In Abortive Laps; In New Technology, Endpoint/Endeavour Likewise Lacks In Genuine Ending. No Conquest's Enough! Angela Brett, because once something (such as handwriting recognition or chess-playing computers) which would have been considered artificial intelligence becomes commonplace, it is no longer really considered to be AI. AI is redefined to be something ever more complicated so that we can never actually say we've succeeded in creating it. This reminds me of racing dogs chasing after a rabbit which they can never catch.

CARLEYCan Anyone Respond Logically, Except You? Angela Brett, when somebody posted on the Apronyms forums asking for an expansion of her name. We can't come up with a name expansion which has any relevance to a particular person without knowing anything about that person... we could only make up some random description of nobody in particular, and if there happens to be somebody with that name who fits the description it's just a fluke. It takes the 'apro' out of 'apronym'.

CHRISTMAS SONGSCarols Have Rhythm? I'm Supposed To Make Accented Syllables Syncopic & Overextend Nearly Gratuitous Syntax Angela Brett, noting that the rhythm in many Christmas carols is terrible... some unstressed syllables are ludicrously elongated while others are omitted. Even seasoned churchgoers hesitate at some lines, wondering just how to fit the words into the tune. As some words are replaced by more modern versions the rhythm is screwed up even more, and the difficulty is made worse by the fact that different parishes offer slightly different modernisations to fit into the same tune.

"Called-Logically!" is a PUNNY way of saying "most Pies are CIRCLES." Er is Chinese Two. Hope the grave accent for Èr worked.

CLIMATE VISIONCarbon Lurks In Murky Air, The Environmental Violation Is Serious, It's Overly Noxious Tony McCoy O'Grady, in response to this article from the Feedback section of New Scientist magazine: THE BUSH Administration is being criticised for its voluntary global warming programme, in which American industry is gently encouraged to "reduce the projected growth" of greenhouse gases. Whatever the justification for the criticism, one aspect of the programme is unforgivable - its name. Climate VISION stands for Climate, Voluntary Innovative Sector Initiatives: Opportunities Now. Not since 2001's USA PATRIOT Act (Uniting and Strengthening of America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required toIntercept and Obstruct Terrorism) has an acronym been so contrived.If this trend continues, we shudder to contemplate the inevitable GOD, MOTHERHOOD AND APPLE PIE Act.

It's getting tougher to see just what he's looking at. "David, will you step aside a little?" Well, thanks for letting me vent.
