New Blogger version compatible with Mozilla. Heck yeah! Where have you guys been? We've been talking about this for months. ;-)

Ev's showing off the new [edit] feature we spent 10 minutes hacking back into Blogger today. We used to have it, ages ago. When I told Ev what I planned to do, he nearly exploded! I think he's been eating too much candy lately.

Just so nobody's shocked when they see it; Yes, that's a new button on my sidebar. Yes, it says what you think it says. It has a historical context that I'm starting to think is more and more appropriate. I made it myself. If you like it; use it. It's in the public domain.

Been listening to a lot of Billy Bragg lately. He writes some beautiful songs; unpretentious, simple, about something that's not 'being rebuffed by yet another chick'.

I spent an hour hacking on the old Apple ][ emulator YAE to get it to build under Redhat 9 (notice the Last-Modified date given at the bottom of that page is from 1997) only to spend the next 10 seconds realizing that the game I was itching to play, Montezuma's Revenge, wasn't fun anymore. I'd never seen it in color, though.

LWM looks like a fun window manager. Only a handful of window decorations, and it's configuration is it's understanding of exactly 5 Xresources. Well, to be fair, he does throw a bone to those needing more customization: In addition to these ample facilities, there exists a powerful configuration tool called gcc.

Much like my tiny, toothless coworker, Google made me bona-a-fide today. I don't feel any different than before except that it's the first time in quite a long while that I've had health insurance. I'm as happy as a pig in one of those pig-places. You know, Congress.

Archos 40G Personal Video Recorder. $620 and all the limewire sucked South Park I can stand. Really, combine this with a TiVo and I'd never get any reading done on the train.

I was in St. Louis from Thursday to late last night attending the wedding of a friend of mine. It was weirdly tense so most of our time was spent racking up one vicious bar tab after another. The bride said that if any of us were drunk the night before the wedding that we'd be thrown out of the wedding party. It took about 7 hours that night to get her friend so drunk that he projectile vomitted across his entire bathroom. Boy that was disgusting. Nobody was removed from the wedding party. Pictures forthcoming.

The Arch is freaking gigantic. I only figured it'd be big. It feels completely foreign compared to the rest of St. Louis. As if left there by an ancient race, complete with a Shopping Center and Museum!

Going up in the arch consists of crawling into a tiny, egg-shaped capsule jammed in with 5 other people. Once crammed inside, you're hoisted precariously up the inside edge, gears grinding and metal creaking the whole way up. The view is mesmerizing. White Flight as far as the eye can see.
