The first gameplay trailer for Plushed just came out - it's looking like an easy choice, when it debuts in September or October. ^_^

Here's someone who, in the process of trying to recreate the classic Lunar Lander in under 5K, using Flash, and found he'd only taken up 3K - and so, extended it into 3D to fill the space available. =:) Both versions are online to enjoy: original 2D and wireframe 3D. The former is completely faithful to the original, too. ^_^

Looking around for more information regarding using jailbroken iPhones on AT&T, I came across this handy site. (And I thought O2's roaming data charge was silly at £6/MB? Seems AT&T want $20/MB! Oh, to be able to buy up a decent cellco in several countries, and create a genuinely global set of plans)

True, there are easier ways of making music, but if you could make a synth using lots of conductive foam pads, 15 bikini-clad girls, and plenty of conductive ink, I'd say it would be an experiment worth conducting.

As dictated by local law, the Perseids peaked, and lo, the sky was solid grey. Surely all it would've taken is a few megawatts of laser energy pointed upwards?

Hm. So. Despite enjoying many fine tiramisu and cannoli at Victoria's, and quite a few good pints at the Magnolia Cafe and the GBBF, I've apparently lost a little weight. Still far above my ideal, but 100kg down from 105kg at the start of July or thereabouts is moving in the right direction. ^_^ (Could be expensive, though, if I eventually have to go and buy the Cressi Glaros and Orca S2 in smaller sizes.. =:)

Wandering along on my walk yesterday, I spotted one guy (who, sadly, can't seem to open his eyes much; enough to see, though, as he's perfectly able to select what he wants to eat, and gets around as easily as any of the others) right by the fence. Here, he's relaxing a bit, after some energetic munching. When you need to pull the zoom back a little, you know you've got a close shot.. ^_^ Be sure to check out the high-res version!

 
 
 
 
 
 
Hard to tell, but it could be myxomatosis. There isn't the classic puffy, pink-eyed look, but it's a disease with quite variable symptoms. If you've seen him around in this condition for several months, though, then it's almost certainly something else, as average survival time (in an unresistant rabbit) is only about a fortnight.

If it is myxomatosis, and if the rabbit is unresistant, then there's sadly very little hope: it's almost always fatal. I wonder whether it could be a rabbit with a degree of resistance only, that's therefore contracted the disease but in a milder form? Speculation, that.
