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. ^_^

Ack! There's a shortage of really good comics emporia as it is. Stop closing, dammit! Mercifully, when I got to the location of Comic Relief, adjacent to the University Avenue entrance to the main UC Berkeley campus, and found them missing, it was only because they'd moved to more spacious premises. Though they still didn't have any Spooo Presents, sadly - seems for now, Rabbit Valley titles are only available from them directly, while they work on getting into Diamond. Pity, as I've seen Coyote River electronically, and wanted to pick up a paper copy.. such a cute little tale. ^_^

I also miss Orbitz, that range of drinks with little edible beads floating in it. I used to have a couple bottles sitting on top of the monitor at work, as a sort of cold lava lamp.
