The quite inimitable otter3 pointed out this outstanding outcome of a bet, of a lapine nature. We need more bunny journalists, I say.

And I'm indebted to tgeller for pointing out the very thing I'd been curious about: a furry domain registrar, HareLink.

ysengrin noticed Arduino, a microcontroller in the vein of the erstwhile Basic Stamp, but rather cheaper - around $4 per microcontroller, against some $50 per Stamp. Better still, as the IDE is open source and gcc-based, it's cross-platform, available for OS X, Linux, and Windows.

Rather cool - the NY Metropolitan Opera offered a simulcast of Madame Butterfly on a huge screen in Times Square. The journo also noted 'Alongside the giant image of his character BF Pinkerton proclaiming that "a Yankee travels the world, he drops anchor wherever and whenever he pleases" a recruitment video was playing for the US armed forces, complete with a picture of a stealth bomber.'

It's apparently one part of the Met's attempt to reclaim a fresh audience for opera, with the cheapest tickets down from $26 to $15, HD simulcasts to cinemas in the US and Europe, and downloads (including, yes, ringtones).

Can't really make this stuff up.. in advance of the Borat movie's release, the Kazakh government's taken out a four page promo for the country in the New York Times and the International Herald Tribune. ^_^

Cute. AllSimps links to every episode of the Simpsons, in streaming Flash video. Be prepared to endure load times.

Lio is a particularly good strip, despite being syndicated. Here's an example of what I enjoy about it. =:)

As a long-time reader of Kevin and Kell, the comic strip from which the Hare Link ISP offshooted, I feel fairly confident in recommending it. I've never used it myself, natch, but K&K's creator Bill Holbrook chooses his business partners very carefully and he himself is a great guy who's been a successful newspaper-syndicated comic artist for many years. I sponsored him with a Squirrelverse ad for a while in 2005 on kevinandkell.com and found him to be totally pleasant to deal with, as was the guy who admins his website. ^_^

On another note, a comic site I enjoy muchly that features strips similar to Lio is 'The Comics Curmudgeon', where a guy looks at a selection of the daily newspaper comic strips and humorously comments on them. Tis good fun!
I hope he doesn't look at Lio! TCC is for strips that are well past their prime, assuming they had one originally. (Actually, maybe you found out about it from my journal? =:)

It's fairly boggling just how BH manages to maintain a solid stream of K&K on a daily basis - that's worthy enough by itself, but then he's got those other two strips as well! Maybe he draws simultaneously with both hands? ^_^ Once I can, I'll try transferring the domain over to them - I only need basic registrar service, but it never hurts to have additional webspace. No such thing as too much space or traffic, after all. (I'm informed there is such a thing as too much garlic, but it's not something I've personally experienced)
Bill has said that he works on a three-month rota where he swaps around the comic that he's drawing in a given month. He draws a month of Kevin and Kell, then a month of Safe Havens, then a month of On The Fastrack, then goes back to the start of the cycle again.
