ibneko noted a particularly intriguing Flash creation, the Grow Cube. Click on things, and let them develop as far as they will, given what else is around and has happened.. and see how far you can get.

Beware the perils of waxing.

If you're looking to downgrade your PSP firmware, beware a trojan masquerading as such. Once installed, you're pretty much SOL.

Rabbits are banned from Portland, in Dorset, but bunnies are fine.

Wednesday was a fairly well-occupied day, leaving no time for daylight rambling. Still, it was a happy moment to fire up the espresso maker again, yielding as delicious a mug of cappuccino as I could've wished for, courtesy of the Castro Cheesery, which also offers a fine line in well-priced good coffee beans; always a good place to pick up coffee reserves, or even interesting infusions like twig tea or genmaicha.

Whatever it's like, I need a can of this drink if only for the label. ^_^

Blame kaputotter for pointing out (aha!) this baby hedgehog oekaki. Safe for work, but hazardously cute.

Wednesday's dinner: feeling somewhat exhausted, I didn't really want to get deep into cooking, but those tiger prawns, they tempted me so.. headless, peeled, and raw, ideal for my nefarious purposes. Muahahahaa! So, I boiled up a quick base of some glutinous rice vinegar, fish sauce, and oyster sauce (hi sodium!), then added a generous heaping of said hapless crustaceans, some sliced spicy bean cake, and the remainder of the woodears, leaving it all to get down and funky. Then, towards the end, a few baby bok choi, a large handful of snow peas, and a l-o-o-o-o-ng ribbon of wasabi, as I was feeling in a tangy mood. Finally, as it seemed to need something more, a minor dollop of shiro miso. Mmm. Happy panda.

(Whereas Thursday's was a pair of pork tamales, with rice and beans, and a credit to their breed)

In geek news, I found the Cjip CPU interesting - it's an 8-bit device that executes Java bytecode directly.

An article in The Tennesseean notes, astonishingly, that Country music ranks low on digital music player playlists.

Check out this posting for three nighttime pictures, two of them featuring a young rabbit. ^_^
Yikes, PSP virii already? Holy cow those people are quick.
*sigh* And probably not the last one to appear.. sad how the mindset of some people compels them to wreak havoc upon people they've never met, and have no disagreement with, merely out of some twisted notion of fun. :-P The really nasty aspect of this one, as the article notes, is it hoses your PSP's firmware - and without that in functional condition, AFAIK, there's no ROM-based bootloader to permit restoring the firmware, so you're fairly much screwed, short of getting Sony to get into the board and work magic from there.

Presumably the firmware update has to be cryptographically signed to prove its authenticity, but the cracks must prove that's been circumvented. (Anyone know for sure?)
Well, I know you can make DESIRED unauthorized changes to your PSP, so there must be a way for sad losers with nothing better to do to introduce undesired ones to it as well. Probably disguised as a disired one to boot.

But I have no real intricate knowledge of it, since I don't have a PSP.
