More fun to be had here although I had to screenshot this one as drag and drop produces a generic image.

Sad Headline of the Day

Diploma mills are bad and all, but please. If anything's a terrorist threat it's pregnant teenagers. I suppose I should link to the piece from the Newspaper of Record but them's the breaks.

Read the fine print. It's always meaningful.

They don't call him Wildmon for nothing.

Firefox 3 is Go

Thus far a bunch of extensions aren't working, but the hassle of that, using the developer version of Tab Mix Plus, and installing Adblock Plus instead of Adblock is more than made up for by the performance boost for my Mac. PC users with lotsa extensions might want to wait - I didn't really need the upgrade at work and lost a little functionality out of it - but generally I am very pleased.

Mythic Means Big

The Blink Tag

I have never seen, I think,
A tag as lovely as a blink.

A tag whose “open” sits right next
To sweetly fulminating text;

A tag that blinks out “God” all day,
Should we desire to virtually pray;

A tag that may in summer swear

Upon whose closure sweet relief
For snobby coders with a beef.

Lou Montulli made the blink,
But only you can make it stink.

Good Luck Iowa City

I spent a while there feeding fish popcorn in between drinking beer and not going to classes. Once in a while the park I walked by on the way to school would vanish under water. It's worse now.

Viagra Professional?

It Is a Great Thing

It is a great thing that the presidency is within the reach of women who don't hire Mark Penn.

The Semicolon

Hail to thee oh semicolon,
Crutch of pedant masked as Solon,
Aid to bold Non Sequitur;
The weather’s nice today.
