From the Mad Scientist (well, pyrotechnician, but then..) department, this rather nifty experiment to produce a gunshot effect. Be sure to let the animated GIF load fully. ^_^

Words from the wise on Dating an Apple Developer, though the same holds true for all programmers. "The nice thing about most computer boys is that they don't typically check out other women. The downside of this is that they don't notice the other women because they are too busy checking out people's cell phones and iPods. When it comes to boys and their toys your short mini skirt just can't compare."

Interesting job posting I noticed recently: "Apple is at a point where we need to strengthen our compiler/tools team with more embedded experience." Why the emphasis on embedded deployment?

Have you seen this Dalek? And there's an update, in the form of a ransom demand. Sort of. ^_^;

I thought ysengrin in particular might enjoy this glorious Soviet-style Watch, Ride, Report poster, courtesy of the MARC train service between Baltimore and DC.

From the BBC's two part documentary One World: Rats, downloadable here, "It's been said that in the urban jungle you're rarely more than 12 feet from rats doing what they like best: eating, playing, sleeping and having lots of sex - a bit like humans really."

And, while it's only really of any interest to me, I'll make note of it anyway, as I'm quite pleased - XPostFacto 4.0b3 did indeed manage its job, and permit the CD version of Tiger[1] to install on Bunny, despite being considerably older than the supported range of systems. Spotlight, ho! (Sure, it's no speed demon, but Bunny'll be seven in September :)

[1] Tiger ships on a DVD; the CD version's a separate item. Bunny has a DVD drive, but it's old enough that it doesn't see DVD-Rs, only pressed DVDs.

Things not to do when snuggling with one's SO: nibble adoringly on their ear, and let out a hearty burp. I swear, it came without any warning.. ^_^;; (Thankfully, no offense was taken, though I recall I dissolved into an embarrassed giggling fit..)
