pretty much my favourite animal

So ligers (and tigons) are real? Turns out there's a whole bunch of hybrid animals with fake-sounding names.

I sure wouldn't want to mess with 450 kg (880 pounds) of magic-skilled fury.

It sure is tough waking up to this in the morning.

once in a while, the system works

My bank called today. Seems that someone used my credit card number to order over $5000 of stuff from Canadian Tire and Radio Shack in the past couple of days, using a fake name and address. Luckily the banks have some huge patchwork system of computers, rubber bands, and duct tape that makes up for the complete lack of security in credit cards, so I don't actually lose any money out of this. I just get a new card in the mail and some forms I have to sign.

product reviews

MEC has nice laptop bags for $10. They fit 15" Powerbooks just right and are way cheaper than anything else I've seen.

OpenBSD 3.7 is now available for preorder. This release includes a pile of new wireless support thanks to a lot of hard work in convincing vendors to supply documentation to the developers and reverse-engineering products when the vendors refused.

Wendy got an iTrip a little while ago. I was skeptical at first, but it actually works pretty well once it's tuned properly. It's really important to find a station with no interference. If you're in my neighbourhood, try tuning in to 88.1 FM.
