If sockscatt has, or can get, a PS3, he might want to take Taco Bell up on their 'tacos for life' exchange: first person to donate a PS3 gets $12,500 in Taco Bell Bucks. The PS3 will then be handed over to the Boys & Girls Club of Stanton, California.

What a wonderful Doctor Who concert! I wish I'd been able to be there in person, but still, good that Radio Wales carried it live over the net. And I was rather pleased to see them acknowledge Delia Derbyshire's role in the original music's arrangement and realisation.

Here's the fursuit parade in full from MFF 2006, albeit with one of the most painful audio compressions YouTube's yet inflicted on the public.

Good grief.. now we hear that both Christopher Eccleston and George Takei will be joining Heroes. I might even have to sneak a peek at the show sometime..

Now this is an iPod dock I'd be tempted by, if I had one. =:)

Here's a good look at the Vista EULA, with particular regard to its implicit threat to disable the software if Microsoft feels so inclined. It goes on to explore the US legal nature of such "self help" - here, a vendor disabling their code in response to a license violation - including some case history and applicable laws.

Nothing revolutionary, but the BBC's Six O'Clock News had a peek at SL on Monday. Not the most insightful reporter on the planet, but a pretty level-headed look all the same.

Wii explained, by those who created it.

I thought djmermaid might be tickled by these Queen of All Cosmos earmuffs that mycroftb noticed. ^_^ And these Bearhands mittens are way cute, available in fleece of various colors, plus a couple types of fake fur.

I never realised it could be possible for a Tellytubby to have a Scottish accent..

If you're in the Bay Area, and enjoyed Pixar's Cars, you might want to wander along to the Morgan Auditorium on Dec 1, when the San Francisco Society of Illustrators will be hosting Pixar Under the Hood: The Making of Cars. "A team of Pixar's creative talent, led by Lighting Technical Director Jeremy Vickery, will break down the process of what it takes to make a winning collaborative effort...concepts, component development, production fine tuning, tech tweaks...plus a few special surprises on the way to the checkered flag of completion."

Don't suppose anyone knows what's up with Taco, over on SL? foxymoonheart mentioned they'd apparently taken it down in protest at the island rate increases, which I understand have now been pushed back to Feb 2008 (for existing islands, not new ones). Is the place gone for good? I really hope not, as it was a great example of the fun one can have with a sim, and one of only a surprisingly small number of toony venues.

Sweet Valerian ep.12 is now out. ^_^


You scored as Pussy Galore. You are Pussy Galore, the heroine who worked for Goldfinger, but saved the day when you met a man who changed your life forever. And with a name like that, you have to be good in the sack too!

Yay, Diarrhea for Life!

I hadn't heard about Taco going offline but if it has, that is a shame. By the way, the cost increases only effect new sims. Ones that are already online will remain at the current rate.
First prize $5,000 in Taco Bell Bucks, second prize $10,000? =:)

Yep, trying my usual Taco bookmark just gives an error on trying to teleport, and the text field beneath the landmark field says (Unknown region). The vixie mentioned the rates for existing islands had been due to rise in a couple months, apparently, in line with the prices for new orders, but that had been pushed back by a year. Easy to understand owners would be a little upset about a 50% rise with so little warning, especially one like Taco, which is essentially run out of their own pockets just for fun. Maybe I'll sniff around SL Insider and the like - see if any of them have noted Taco's disappearance.

Maybe I should try putting together something of a Furry SL Guide. There doesn't seem to be any single, handy source like that - seems ideal for newcomers, but probably would be handy for others too, given the way there's no real connection between individual realms like Luskwood and Lost Creatures. There's probably loads of furry locales and venues I've not even heard of yet, less still visited.
