Finestkind! It's finally time for two of Studio Ghibli's best works to see new Buena Vista DVD releases: Totoro and Whisper of the Heart, due on March 7. And Dreamworks has apparently set a date of Feb 7 2006 for Curse of the Were-Rabbit. ^_^ (Same day as Mirrormask, as it happens)

I really should commission a piece or two of myself. Trouble is, I'm not quite sure what I look like, especially now, wherein my species isn't quite certain.. it's something of a disconcerting, confusing feeling, I'd have to admit, yet also somehow exciting. But I do wish it'd pass..

So, what happens if you drive a car behind a 747 on full thrust?

Any font geeks will want to see the tale of Little Yellow Writing Hood. I'm looking at you, amelitatwinstar.. ^_^

stego_s_aurus pointed out some rather neat sculptures, made from old tires.

rubberskunk might be interested in this enjoyably cheesy (poignant, but still cheesy) cyborg TF from the 1978 Annual of 2000AD: The Symbiote (1.1MB). All hail the miracle of BitTorrent!

Wewt! The 3com switch/WiFi/modem works perfectly out of the box. The PSU's only single voltage, but that'll be staying here, so that's not a concern. Supports WPA for WiFi encryption, so I'm reasonably secure on that front. (I did like the way the password's noted as permitting spaces and non-alphanumerics, but trying to use those brings up a warning saying those aren't permissible) Only weirdness is the time setting doesn't appear to function at all - trying to set it manually or over NTP just has no effect, leaving it stuck in 2038. But that only affects the logs, so it's nothing to worry about. Not sure what I can do with the bundled 802.11g card, though, given Hyzenthlay's wirelessness is internal and included.
