Giving back to the community

It's small, but here's my first contribution to the larger open source community. Since Gentoo's XgridAgent ebuild, which was listed alredy as working on PowerPC, worked just fine on my x86 Linux box, I let them know. xgridagent-1.0 is now marked ~x86.

Drew Carey's Green Screen Show

Nifty new show on The WB. Take Whose Line is it Anyway?, do it in front of a green screen, and add animation. If you like Whose Line?, you'll like this. If you haven't seen Whose Line?, you'll probably like it anyway. And go watch Whose Line? on ABC Family, too.

Airlines of Hawaii

New book coming out next year, will have to keep my eyes open for this one.

Learn to spell

Folks, this is why your elementary school teacher made you memorize all those Presidents' names, states, etc.

Oh, the art looks like about 4th grade, too.

Paying too much

I don't get it.

I've used one of these cameras. The image quality isn't that great. 10x optical zoom is nice, but still, only 0.3 megapixels and 640x480 resolution. You can't really get all that many images on a floppy disk, and unlike flash memory card based cameras, you can't avoid carrying around lots of disks by getting a larger disk. For $270, you can definately do better.
