If you've wondered how your town might fare in the face of a zombie onslaught, this Java simulator provides the answer. I'm afraid it doesn't offer much hope.

Pic for the day: Bayshore's Off Duty. (Safe) "They work so hard all day, fighting crime and fires, it's rare when they can sleep in and enjoy one anothers company. Aren't they peaceful? I guess it was another long night!! ;o3"

A tale of love. Read this, if you haven't already - it's been circulating quite a bit, and highly deservedly.

Want to name an entire species of monkey? A forthcoming charity auction by the Wildlife Conservation Society will offer exactly that. "According to WCS Conservationist Dr. Robert Wallace, who discovered the monkey, very little is known about the new monkey except that it stands about a foot tall, weighs two pounds and likes fruit. In the morning pairs of them gather and 'duet', calling back and forth while clutching each other in what resembles a human embrace."

If you recall that "Which OS-tan are you?" quiz I posted a little while back, here's an explanation of just what they are. ^_^ And here's Thunderbird-ko and Firefox-ko, in 1600x1200 and 1280x1024.

Sushi pillows.

A particularly good specialist weblog on.. well, guess. North Korea zone And for a less egotistical version of Wonkette, try DC Media Girl. Recommended. And, Why I Hate DC froths nicely.

You may well have driven over rumble strips on the road as some point. Of course, it was only a matter of time until someone decided to use different width gaps to play tunes as you pass over.

mycroftb showed me this pic of Runtt, a red panda, by Frank Gembeck. (Not safe for work)

The newest PowerBooks offer a "scrolling trackpad" feature; this extension brings that to other more recent PowerBooks and iBooks.

Now this projector's worth pointing out.. note the first photo on the right, showing its size. It's 14oz, and will also run off a car adaptor or a battery pack; and illumination's from LEDs (!), with a rated life of 20,000 hours. But what keeps the price so high? Even at a list of $699 - not all that bad - it's still not exactly free with the cornflakes. Are they just milking the corporate customers?

Arboretum's erstwhile HyperEngine-AV audio/video editor is now a free download. They're still charging for their plug-ins, and support is now on a subscription basis, but there are plenty of sources for HyperEngine plug-ins.

Want a desktop mobile phone? The intended auction is the senior crowd, who may prefer phones that can't be accidentally inhaled.

I recently rediscovered two TF-related episodes of the Aladdin TV series: Do the Rat Thing , and Eye of the Beholder. I recall the transformations being fairly rapid, but they're still enjoyable, even if on the limited budget Disney TV animation tends to live on.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Wow, you could tell what exit is coming up by the tune it plays if you edge off onto the shoulder (thus saving money on all those exit signs). Or you could determine what lane you were crossing over into, or whether you were driving the wrong way, all by the tune the tires play. I guess either they want to let blind people drive (which might work, except for the other cars on the road) or they actually want to encourage people to constantly veer off onto the shoulders. :-)
I guess either they want to let blind people drive

From what I gather, isn't that common practice anyway?

And in the EU, major roads could play the anthem of the country you're currently entering. (Except, of course, so many tend to be of almost dirge-like tempo, so you'd have to drive about four miles in the process)

or they actually want to encourage people to constantly veer off onto the shoulders

Well, that does seem to be a very real problem, judging by the preponderance of "DO NOT DRIVE ON MEDIAN" signs I saw while hastening through Arkansas. I'd hitherto not gauged that to be all that much of a problem.. ^_^;

If Intel tries sponsoring that wretched four note jingle into 101 exits, though, I think things could become ugly.
