A long overdue look through my archived links.
- John Lennon’s “[The Beatles are] more popular than Jesus” remark has been forgiven by The Vatican.
- Grant Publishers are taking pre-orders for a new edition of The Little Sisters of Eluria (including the revised DT1: The Gunslinger). On the one hand, do I really need a book including two stories I already have (twice even)? On the other hand, a pretty book with new illustrations by Michael Whelan. Tempting. Too tempting.
- The British postal service goes to great lengths to get some mail delivered.
- Apparently, it is possible to vandalize a graffiti-wall.
- There are at least two communities dedicated to explaining why the Inheritance cycle isn’t, *cough*, all that good: Impishidea.com, anti-shurtugal.com.
- Working on a Dream, Bruce Springsteen’s next album, is due out January 27, 2009.
- I’ve mentioned my thing for libaries before. Do want.
- You can operate a jet ski in a hot tub.
- What do you call a bunch characters used to indicate cursing? It’s a %@#$^! grawlix.
- In Dutch law, there is no such thing as a city.
- Little people are everywhere.
- Zilch is not unlike Yathzee. And very addictive.
- There’s an abundance of castles that might be worth checking out.
- CSS opacity is entirely possible. But as expected, IE plays foul.
- Firefox 3.1 (scheduled for early 2009) will, like Safari and IE8, include
a pornmodeprivate browsing feature. Stealther does more or less the same.
- Apple I Basic sounds like a modem trying to commit suicide.
