Saw "Spider-Man" for the first time last night, a freebie Pay-Per-View. Not to sound like a barbarian, but they should have just called it "The Rack of Kirsten Dunst"...yowza. (And I thought of that before the scene in the rain. Ahem. I digress.)
So, once more we delve into my good old backlog. This brings us all the way up to halfway through last August!
- Kartoo is a cool-looking but ultimately not terribly useful search engine that graphically displays the relationships between sites matching your search.
- I must have made a note to check out FreeRIP to help with making some mix CDs...haven't tried it yet though.
- Ranjit preserved his old Word.com staff page, including such
FlashShockwave-based hits as "Zen Meat Garden", "Anti-Tapioca", and "The Crossing Guard's Coffee Break". For reasons that are unclear to me, I added "Metal Fingers In My Body" to this backlog entry, the name of an animated pornographic techno music video =about a robot gigolo. Unfortunately I couldn't refind a link to the video itself.
- Who doesn't love Paul Harvey? A bit much on the conservative side, but you have to respect his principles and work ethic. I think he's a Salvationist, actually. (I.e. attends The Salvation Army as his church.)
- An article on Ben Franklin and his "Junto" group, a supper club that achieved many cool things.
- The offical free software Hello World program. Another blow for the Open Source movement!
- Slate's "ad report card" on Viagra vs Enzyte. Those Enzyte ads are really odd. I didn't realize that the phrase "suffragium asotus", displayed after Enzyte's name, isn't a chemical, just dog-Latin for "sensual assistance".
- Wage-slave.org has made a Scorecard of Evil to keep track of our beloved president.
- Saltine has a lot of good ideas, including an idea for yet another flavor of Diet Coke.
- Looks like someone in Australia has managed to patent the wheel. I guess this is mostly to point out how absurd the world's patent systems have gotten.
