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. ^_^
Oh, yes! I remember seeing Doom Juice advertised. It's a fair bet cans of it are still available on eBay, along with Jesus' face in the cross-section of a mango.

And a week later, it started growing back.

Aack! Well, you know what they say - you can't keep a good hare down.

ISTR follicles follow a dormancy cycle, such that laser treatment places say the procedure needs to be carried out two or three times, in order to catch all the hairs outside that stage. Was the new growth as busy as it had ever been?

Shaving, of course, works, but gods, it's a tedious affair. Probably easier with someone else to help in the shower, but even when that's an option, then you run into the problem of only one person at a time really getting any of that lovely hot water. (Though I do recall Graeme's house, back in yon Trilobyte days, having a shower that could've come off a ST:TNG set, with something like three jets on each side, and a suitably impressive black console controlling it all)
You've got hairs in various stages of growth. Some are full, some are just starting, some are close to the surface. Waxing gets those that are grown, and the hairs that are just below the surface sprout into being a few days later. The hair was thinner, but there was no way I was going to wax everything all over again.

I'm toying with buying an epilator which should be a more controlled form of torture, but the lack of funds (and knowledge of pain) is keeping me from the stores. :)
