fleetfur noticed this alert: Second Life passwords need changing. "On September 6 we discovered evidence that an intruder was able to access the Second Life database through the web servers. The exploit was shut down on the afternoon of September 6 when we discovered it. As a precaution we have invalidated all Second Life account passwords." Go here to enter your SL name, and you'll be sent a link by email, whereupon you can reset your password.

Via relee, a good My Little Pony music video, set to Rammstein's "Tier". ^_^ Though, for a masterpiece of composition and synchronisation, Kevin Caldwell's Evangelion AMV set to their "Engel" remains a very tall order to beat.

Can't say I'd mind a little stack of these drives - 750GB Seagate, including a three year warranty, for $300. Wonder if it'd be possible to hack up a battery pack to drive a few of them in FW800/USB2 cases.. ^_^ [Edit: and now it's $400?]

arakinuk pointed out this awfully cute red panda mask, suitable for printing out and assembling yourself.

Sheep Poo Paper. "Founders Lawrence Toms, 38, from Rhondda and Lez Paylor, 38, from Caerphilly, said they had been keen to develop an idea which would create a manufacturing company which would be uniquely Welsh and could produce a product that foreign imports could not compete with."

FTTH = Fiber to the Home. ^_^ The best scenario, but obviously, more expensive than fiber to the street box. But ISTR Berkeley ran the figures for such a municipal enterprise, and it worked out at something like $15/mo for subscribers, spread over ten years.

Cardiff's done pretty well for itself over the past ten years, it seems - the bay redevelopment, the stadium, the new arena.. they're a good example of how intelligent investment can keep a city center from crumbling, like Bristol or Plymouth. (Well, not that Bristol's nearly as bad - and I imagine the naval base closure in Plymouth contributed a lot to their woes)
