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!

Which James Bond character are you?

Well, to be fair, Alotta Fagina is from Austin Powers... a series of movies I like much, much better than the Bond ones, myself. :)
Ah, we differ on that. ^_^ I'm more one for dry than broad humor, generally - something like Absolute Power, or indeed, anything Chris Morris is involved in, such as The Day Today or Brass Eye.
I didn't watch any of those. :) That being said, it's not like I don't like dry or subtle humour, either, but James Bond at least just gets on my nerves - it may ellicit the occasional chuckle from you, but for the most part, it's pretty devoid of humour. And it doesn't really have other redeeming qualities, either, IMO. :)

But yeah, I like slapstick more than dry or subtle humour, that's true. The Austin Powers sure had their weak moments, too, but generally speaking, good humour is when I can laugh until my sides hurt. ^_^ There's some old Laurel and Hardy movies that do that, for example (maybe more than "some", too - I haven't watched that many yet), and I also love classics like "Airplane!" or "The Naked Gun".

And I still want to get my paws on classics like "The Bangville Police" or "Hoffmeyer's Legacy" or other Keystone Kop movies, too - I think the Kops are a piece of culture that's vastly underappreciated and that should never have been forgotten the way it was. :)
