Interesting.. according to Alexa's web traffic stats, LJ is considerably more popular than Slashdot.

And on a similar theme, LJ's offering account extensions, in light of the problems lately: two weeks, or if you buy 6 or 12 months, an extra two months.

Fresh from NotCon '04, here's a pile of MPEG-4 video coverage of most of the sessions, including Brewster Kahle's Universal Access to Human Knowledge. Each hour is around 120MB at high quality, or 24MB at lower quality.

.. and by way of xolo, the old ones are the best.. ^_^

Courtesy of the CDC's kids' page, sets of disease trading cards, including ebola, hantavirus, HIV, rabies, and ulcers, to name but a few.

The good news: new pics at Kemono Inukai's site. The bad news: it looks like he's putting a "bug" of sorts on images now, in this case, a rather intrusive horizontal white blur. Poop.

A handy way to test if your browser is vulnerable to the recent "frame injection" vulnerability found in several browsers (makes a nice change, almost :), including some versions of Firefox and Safari. OmniWeb 5.0b8, at least with my settings, didn't show the problem in question.

Another reason to miss Singapore: MOS Burger. Yes, I know what you're thinking - go to Asia, eat at a burger joint a few times (amongst other places!).. but, despite not being much of a burger fan, I really enjoyed theirs. "Other seasonal selections have included the Nan Mexican (naan bread in the role of a soft tortilla, layered with ground beef, lettuce, and tomatoes) and the Tsukune Patty, a minced beef dumpling burger with stir fried vegetables and sesame sauce." (Would those be examples of MOS Technologies?)
