Link of the Moment
Somehow I missed the Wil Wheaton Responds To Your Questions when it first came out on slashdot, but John was talking about. He got an early big break in "Stand By Me" and he also played Wesley on Star Trek: The Next Generation. (He was kind of the Barney the Dinosaur of the show, the character it was cool for everyone to hate.) Interestingly, he's become a fairly mainstream geek, albeit one who can act. He runs his own website and takes everything in good humor, as long as you don't think an abundance of "I was with your mother last night" jokes eliminates the possiblity of "good" humor.

Funny of the Moment
I've seen news reports that the PO is going to irradiate the mail with gamma rays. Gamma rays and microwaves are so completely different that I can easily believe that one would work, but not the other. Microwaves are actually radio waves, which are much, much lower on the electromagnetic spectrum than gamma rays.

Flash Movie of the Moment
The Screener is a minimalist flash movie, four brief episodes. Not screamingly funny but with a quirky appeal. (via cruel site of the day)
