A Punjabi Fiction - Terminator: Attack of the Drone

On this side of the water, our news is censored so bad to the point that when I want to know what happens in Fort Collins, I go look on BBC or Reuters. Well, it's not quite that bad, but there seems to be an information "curtain" between the Internet and news media. Hence my mirroring of this fictional story by Moshin Hamid. It gives a perspective on the use of drones in the Afghanistan conflict that is unique and very enlightening. Though totally fiction, from these shoes we can see a view where life mimics art.

Ma doesn't hear it. She's asleep, snorin' like an old brown bear after a dogfight. Don't know how she manages that. 'Cause I can hear it. The whole valley can hear it. The machines are huntin' tonight.

There ain't many of us left. Humans I mean. Most people who could do already escaped. Or tried to escape anyways. I don't know what happened to 'em. But we couldn't. Ma lost her leg to a landmine and can't walk. Sometimes she gets outside the cabin with a stick. Mostly she stays in and crawls. The girls do the work. I'm the man now.

When The Advertising Messes Up Your Site - PART II...

Today's coding faux pas is the King Soopers Balloons ad. Doesn't the developer have a testing server and check their work? This problem causes the area to the left of where the balloons come up to split at approximately 322 pixels from the left edge. So when you scroll, the screen splits right there, and the right goes up but the left doesn't, temporarily. If one refreshes the browser, that goes away.
