Getting the shakes some more

Today I checked my e-mail for the first time in almost 3 days. That's the longest I've gone in over 2 years. (I did play video games every day the past few days, so it's not like I was in withdrawal from computers altogether...)

Woo-hoo!

I have a rack!

Getting the shakes

I'm going to have to start working for money again, soon. I need new Lego "like a junkie needs junk."

And now they're going to start selling fan-designed models!

Surprise!

Sometimes a surprise party with 100 of your closest friends and family really is a surprise.

Happy birthday Gramma!

Google Groups
Ever since Google released their monstrously comprehensive archive of newsgroups (dating as far back as 1981), every geek I know has been rummaging around for their personal 'classics'. Well, now I've found one of my own.

My favorite, although not my earliest, old posting found on Google is comparatively recent. In, July of 1994 I submitted a proposal for a new newsgroup: alt.food.cannibal.

One of the many purposes I suggested for the proposed group was discussion of:
Advocacy for and against the legalization of consensual cannibalism in modern society.
I especially like the respondant who signed himself Dave "meat-eater" DeLaney:
it occurs to me that the name alone, in this case, will probably attract a whole *new* Permanent Floating Flamewar; congratulations for finding one of the few taboos not yet constantly violently fought over on Usenet already...

In the end, I didn't bother to take the joke any further, so no newsgroup was ever made to support discussions around cannibalism.

RKCBack on Halloween, I mentioned here something about a revolution...

The Revolutionary Knitting Circle has put forth a global 'Call to Action' for the G8 meeting in June. The action will be a Global Knit-In!
Happy Anniversary to me...
This month marks 8 years that I have been designing websites, and running web servers on the internet.

Ugh. I'm feeling old.
