The raccoons and the iBooks shall return to life

In the spirit of both the day and the forthcoming US event, enjoy this Flash: The Presidential Horror Show. Don't worry if you're tired of it all.. ^_^

Priceless coda to the superb Everyone else has had more sex than me: here. Not at all safe for work.

See? Raccoons can get into the Halloween spirit as well as anyone. ^_^ (Via fairybear)

W00t! Dormouse now lives. ^_^ The tangerine iBook had been suffering from a dead power manager, causing it to only boot if it really felt like it, refusing to wake up (hence its name), and not always remembering it has a battery (a problem when it's running off it). Courtesy of a surprisingly cheap main board replacement and a few hours taking 3,000 screws out, it's as good as new - better, even, as it's now a very rare two-tone tangerine/blueberry iBook, as the board came with the underside casing. ^_^ I wonder if it'd boot as a disembodied unit, no display or keyboard? It wouldn't have been designed to expect everything to be missing, but if it could be encouraged to boot one more time, it'd be able to serve as a ferpectly good router. Then again, I'd still need to add in some sort of drive, and 32MB would seem to not even let OS X think of booting.

Sign for the day.

Some wonderful cosplay pictures from fans waiting for a Dir en Grey concert in Japan. Definitely panda approved. (The link contains a few dozen pics, so be warned if you're on dialup)

A company already operating in the UK will shortly be expanding to offer its ringtones in the US, all on the theme of wildlife sounds.

Lurchi needs a new pair of shoes. Yay salamander! (Even if not red - but very cute!)

Three Fleischer Superman cartoons, free, and in the public domain: The Magnetic Telescope, Billion Dollar Limited, and Arctic Giant.

Great little Berkeley Breathed cartoon featuring John Kerry's hamster. Didn't know about that?
