Chiefs DE Allen Sentenced To 2 Days In Jail – Sports

Kansas City defensive end Jared Allen will serve two days in jail for driving under the influence of alcohol.

The sentence came Wednesday after the defensive end pleaded no contest in Leawood Municipal Court. The judge then found him guilty of the charge.

Allen’s two-day stint will be at the Johnson County Jail. He also must spend two days in a lockdown treatment program and one day on house arrest. The case stemmed from a September stop in Leawood. It was Allen’s second DUI charge. In January, Allen was found guilty of DUI and sentenced to two days in jail after being stopped in Overland Park. He had been granted diversion to have that DUI charge dismissed, but an Overland Park municipal judge revoked the diversion after Allen was charged a second time.

So the guy gets busted for DUI a 2nd time, and gets a whopping 5 days of trouble.  I imagine if a non celebrity were to do this same act, they would be given months of prison time.  Stupid judge, stupid system….

Its the 14th day of the 2nd month of the year! Oh the romance of being 45 days into the new year. How wonderful and intimate.

Not.

Fuck this shit. I think the paper said it best with this. Diamonds:She’ll pretty much have to.

Other than that, I am busy.

Oh god…I am suffering the punishment of the “King”, as in BK.  What is the deal?  McDonalds normally is the one that does this to me, not BK.

Windows XP is probably the last version of Windows that I will ever pay for. As for Windows Vista, I have tried many different versions of the OS and have never really been happy with what it delivers.

I am making this post from my linux desktop. Suse 10.1 with KDE on an old P4 1.5Ghz with 1GB of RDRAM. I have decided that my next “new” computer will run Linux instead of MS. I have tried RH, Gentoo, Suse, slack, free BSD, and a few others that I just don’t remember the name of. Gentoo held great promise until it failed mysteriously in the night…And since I am not a Linux wizard AND I am lazy, I bitched out and went with Suse. If you want to blather to me in e-mail, web forums etc about how great Gentoo is, thats fine. I like the idea of the build and would really like to make it work.

Regardless of that fact I have come to the conclusion that while its a bit more work than Windows to maintain, once you get a few things down, its very easy to make the switch. Especially if your work involves being telnetted into a remote server and your local OS doesn’t mean squat, or a place that run Unix anyway. I say let MS feel the heat a little bit, they haven’t offered a big enough reason to be a paying beta customer, which is what anyone that uses a new MS OS for the first 2 years or first service pack. Even then, you could get a SP2 or 6.
Honestly the only thing people really get out of Vista is DirectX 10, big fucking deal. My still images won’t look any better with a DX10 over my current DX9 card.

If I were to have to choose between paying for a new OS or better equipment, I would rather buy a newer motherboard or something rather than pay for software that really isn’t ready.
