Wow, it was a busy time on this site's guestbook yesterday. Not sure who Y.Nne is at the moment, maybe I'm being dense.
Multimedia of the Moment
Interesting flash film: What message? You left a message? (self-described as a "Science Fiction Flash Movie without Interest") Would be one of the coolest flash videos ever, except that it doesn't heed the precept "harmonicas spoil most things". (via Ranjit I think.)
Quote of the Moment
You can't make people happy by law. If you said to a bunch of average people two hundred years ago "Would you be happy in a world where medical care is widely available, houses are clean, the world's music and sights and foods can be brought into your home at small cost, travelling even 100 miles is easy, childbirth is generally not fatal to mother or child, you don't have to die of dental abcesses and you don't have to do what the squire tells you" they'd think you were talking about the New Jerusalem and say 'yes'.
--Terry Pratchett in alt.fan.pratchett. I might be going on a bit of a Pratchett quote kick.
