Zen swimmer bunny closeup

Rainbows everywhere

This is, in the non-colloquial sense, quite awesome: singing tesla coils, via barberio.. not so much electronica as electrica. Fantastic!

And as rabitguy noticed in this two minute clip, anyone can be twelve years old again. *giggle* (Keep watching - it begins solo, as it were, then a visual chorus =:)

Music for the day: djbalor's Ilmatar's Dance, a nicely bouncy track, yet with a hint of melancholy, and touches of 80s VGM. It's not a genre-buster or redefiner - just a track to play and enjoy. On a slightly gentler ambient note, meanwhile, eliki's "She Forgets" is a delightful piece, at the top of the playlist over here.

I must thank neonbunny for noticing a forthcoming ballot initiative, on the grounds that "on matters ranging from foreign relations to fiscal and environmental stewardship, no other president in American history has accomplished so much in such a short time": "Should the City and County of San Francisco rename the Oceanside Wastewater Treatment Facility the George W. Bush Sewage Plant?" =:D

A cheery verse or two on Zimbabwe.

Very silly: the manly iPod dock (and combination gas meter). =:D

w00t! One nice little side effect of swapping the drives is I've now got a usable external drive for Time Machine - not just the extra space, but the 2.5" case previously held an older 60GB drive, which Hyzenthlay couldn't power unassisted over USB. Checking the drive showed it was rated at 5V @ 700mA, and USB only offers 500mA. The displaced 120GB, however, only requires 420mA, and works perfectly in the 2.5" case. ^_^ (And Time Machine finally works as quickly as it should - my guess is the gigantic file exclusion list is what was slowing it down before)

So, why did I feel such a quiet thrill at riding at the front on the top of a double decker bus? =:D Not the most nimble means of transport, but there's just something fun about them. ^_^

Of course, at the Wetherspoons, I had to go for Badger's Hoppy Hare ("Bound to Please" =:). A good choice, too, not a million miles from Bath Ales' Wild Hare, though the latter remains the better beer, in my meagre estimation. I wonder if Bath Ales need a mascot.. =:)
