From the social experimentation labs of San Francisco comes this craigslist entry, regarding.. dating. It's not entirely work-safe, but it is a wonderful insight. ^_^

Of Wim Wenders' Tokyo-ga : he "had been influenced from an early age by Ozu's work, and he decided to go to Japan while in the middle of making Paris, Texas. During the break in the making of the film in Los Angeles, Wim boarded a 747 and flew across the Pacific to Tokyo, a place he had never been to before". That appeals to me.

Seen plenty of Half-Life casemods? How about Project Bender instead? ^_^

By way of rabitguy, a comprehensive, unofficial guide to the DVD format.

And if you're within reach of the Bullring in Birmingham, the Reg notes the Apple Store's opening at 6pm on the 29th, for Tiger's launch. "Apple is offering a Digital Lifestyle Collection prize draw. There's a 20in-screen iMac up for grabs with a stack of peripherals, together worth £2,145. Scratchcards will be handed out too, offering visitors the chance to win notebooks, iPods and other prizes. And the first 1,500 folk through the door will take home a commemorative T-shirt, Apple said."

And the second part of the Doctor Who "Aliens of London" story must count as.. well, I believe the technical term is "stonking".

Mmm. Taramasalata and Bavarian ham makes a really good sandwich combination.
Not that it's exactly the idea display for such a venture, but I suppose one could get ucLinux up on an iPod photo (for the color display), and have the full version with images running under MySQL - 1.8" drives offer oodles of space now. (So why are 2.5" drives still stuck at 100GB? Not that I'd throw one away if it fell into my fuzzy little paws :)

The PSP might be a good vehicle for such, but it may be some time before there's an open OS running on that, and then there'd be the reliance on memory sticks rather than HD for storage, which'd be fairly expensive for the whole Guide Wikipedia.

Ah, for the debut of Newton 2005. Would be really fun to see, but, as Apple found the first time, and many others since, it's an exceptionally tricky market to nurture to maturity - even Palm's been having a fairly rocky time for the past couple years, and nobody's getting rich off Tablet PC sales. (Well, okay, some execs probably are) All the same.. ^_^

SQlite would be much more geared to the task than MySQL, being that it is very small, embeddable, and there's no tricky build steps. You can compile the whole thing simply by typing cc *.c -o sqlite.

PSP would be nice, but I'm not expecting that to get hacked for a while. Even if someone breaks the the protection and manages to get code running on the main processor, figuring out hardware or libraries will take some time - unless one game developer manages to forget to block their ftp server in the firewall. Hey, it's happened before. :)

I didn't know Palm was having trouble. I've actually been tempted a few times to get one of those Palm Zire's since I've seen them for as cheap as $60 and I could fit a few reference books into 8mb.
