I came across this little bandwidth test in the App Store and decided to install it, just…because. For all that my cable connection is slow (and 5Mb/s is their second tier–they offer 3, 5 and 10, all for arse-rape prices), at least I’m not stuck with only Edge! That was one of the iPhone’s selling […]

I guessed it probably had a name, but I’d still never heard of semantic saturation. I’d heard it called “jamais vu,” but that seemed like some sort of made-up response to déjà vu. It happens to me mostly with words, but if I say my name enough times, it begins to sound strange. Not only […]

I wouldn’t say I was exactly a “fan” of the show, but I did occasionally watch Sliders back in the mid-90s. The premise of travelling across parallel worlds interested me, the acting wasn’t too bad, and I think the show actually might have been the first time I ever heard a reference to string theory. […]

So I don’t forget about it by the time it’s useable…. Europeana.eu launched yesterday, and ten million hits an hour brought it down, so there’s a temporary page up for now, and apparently it won’t be back up until mid-December (ooooh, jealous of European work schedules–here, they’d work their staff half to death to get […]

Interesting, the odd things that stay in our auditory memories. Snippets of TV and radio commercials, the way a colleague said a particular word, the sound of a wedding ring clicking against a stainless steel sink when your grandmother or mother shook water off her hands after washing dishes. I think I probably remember a […]

October is too long. Okay, so yeah, I should be working, and the house was hit over the weekend by a tornado who wears a wedding ring that looks just like mine, so I wouldn’t have time to do it today anyway, but I want Intrepid to be final release. If stupid October was as […]

Damn, script kiddies are getting lazier every year! Finally finished the laundry and ironing, and had a few minutes before the starving masses needed to be fed, so I thought I’d download copies of my blog files so I’d have them to search for that stupid script. It took P. hours to do his phpBB, […]

Okay, so Explore does matter a little. 🙂

This chick is beginning to creep me out a little. She went through my photos a few weeks ago and faved (it’s a word) a bunch. Since she had left no comments, I sent a little note to say, “Thanks for your interest!” and I thought that would be it, but nope. She did it […]

I recently read that Courtney Love is planning on designing and selling a “signature scent”. Ah, yes–can’t wait for that one… “Introducing Stank Ho, the hot new scent from Courtney Love. A captivating blend of cheap bourbon, stale cigarette smoke and unwashed crotch, with delicate undertones of armpit funk and vomit. Coming for the holiday […]
