The cutest letter opener ever (FLV), bunny powered. ^_^

Now this could be fun.. 'Executive Koala narrates the story of a koala bear who happens to be an executive in a pickle company. While trying to finalize a deal with a korean kimuchi company, Koala finds his girlfriend murdered. He becomes the primary suspect and has to prove his innocence.' It is available on DVD, but no subtitles; the trailer is here. (I wonder what became of the suits used in the Anabukin-chan ads.. that was a truly gorgeous rabbit)

In case you were wondering what happened to LJ on Saturday: "Our sysadmins have been hard at work dealing with some unexpected issues arising from our power maintenance last night. (The power maintenance itself went well up until we started bringing back the unavailable servers, and at that point we suffered a power loss event that took down a number of critical machines.)"

Yay! Now there's a decently sized shelving unit in the room, I've been able to go through most of the bags and boxes from the move, and in the process, unearthing some useful bits and pieces, such as Hyzenthlay's DVI-VGA adaptor - so now I've got the junk PC's 15" CRT hooked up and displaying a wonderfully unobstructed view of Dark Nek0gami's "Orange Bunny" pic. And that can only be a good thing. ^_^ This way, I can keep an eye on AIM and email while SL's occupying the main display entirely, without having to drop back to windowed mode.

Here's a scene from the off-Broadway production "Evil Dead: The Musical". Could quentincoyote wish for a more romantic date venue?

If you've considered giving OmniWeb 5 a try, but been put off by the price, they're having a November sale - down from the usual $30 to an easily palatable $10, or $15 for a 5-user family pack. The unlicensed version's good for 30 days of use, which counts only days when it was running, rather than starting counting down from the first launch. You can find it here - OS X 10.4.6 or later required, Universal Binary.

Another little toy someone could send me for Christmas.. Sony's 1080p projector, on special for $6400. =:)

Bruce Schneier makes some excellent points on perceived risk versus actual risk here.

Some choice comments:

* The letter-opening bunny is really cute. :)
* Two-monitor set-ups rock.
* And Bruce Schneier is love. :)
I'm still impressed just how well that bun was able to nibble the letter open - very efficient! If I were an animator, I'd have to find a way of slipping that in as a background gag. ^_^

Gods, I wish there were people of BS' caliber in US politics. But first, the level of political discourse in the US has to improve markedly - as things stand, demonisation is so readily called upon, whether of an issue or a person. Oppose something like security theater, and there'd be plenty willing to brand him as in league with The Terrists.

I wonder if I can use the S-video output at the same time as an external monitor.. I might have to try that sometime, just to see if it can be done. ^_^ And there's always ScreenRecycler, which wires up an uncompressed VNC connection to behave as an additional spanning monitor. (Maybe multiple connections, even) Particularly handy for old laptops, where the displays aren't so easily connected directly to the main host.
Yeah, the bunny was pretty well-trained (or maybe the envelope was treated with eau de carotte? ^_~)... and very efficient, too, yes. ^^

Yeah, I think Bruce Schneier would probably make a good politician, but I think the reason for that is also the reason why he doesn't actually become one. It seems that in politics, those who genuinely want to improve things are always bullied by those who merely want to have power over others... (and also, it's a known fact that the less intelligent someone is, the more likely they are to overestimate their intelligence, their skills, their importance and so on. Given that, I really wonder what you'd find if you subjected all politicians to an intelligence check...)

Mmm, ScreenRecycler sounds handy. There's also x2x, of course (I'm not sure how well X is integrated with OS X, though), and I recall a rather cool tool that generalises the concept of x2x and allows all sorts of cool setups, but I don't recall what the name was, and a quick google search didn't yield anything. :P
