So, another shirt I need to get: Sam & Max.

If you're in the Pacific US, you might want to keep an eye out for Stardust's return; it'll be the fastest artificial re-entry ever, around 0156 PST on Sunday. You can see anticipated entry path here, being overhead around the California/Oregon border, visible at about 10º elevation down around Salinas. It'll be covered on NASA TV starting at 0130 PST. If you do intend to watch it RL, they'd like you to register, to share your photos or video.

Honda's had how many exceptional adverts now? The Heath Robinson "Cog", the Garrison Keillor "Hate Something" campaign, the recent Impossible Dream, and now "Choir" (9.9MB). Just brilliant. ^_^

Speaking of resurrection..

Where can I find good sake in the Bay? Whole Paycheck Market have a few nice bottles, but with the emphasis on the "few" - maybe six or so. Ranch 99 tends much more towards Mystery Chinese Distillates.. (some of which can be quite fun :)

The comments to this David Hasselhoff photo need to be read. (Moderately work safe)

So, I weakened, and picked up a PSP. Now I too can enjoy the wait for a 1.50 firmware downgrader; this one came with 2.50. ^_^; ffmpegX yields decent results after all, once I discovered the PSP only accepts 24kHz sample rate audio - using 32kHz locked it up solid. PSPware also works very well, able to handle various media (video, photos, music, etc), syncing and transcoding automatically if preferred.

Annoyingly, I can't seem to get it online, though - setting it up for WPA with the router's key just brings me a cryptic hex error code when it comes time to test the connection. I certainly don't want to have to fall back to WEP or completely open just for the PSP. (The router in question is a 3Com 3CRWDR100A-72) [Edit: well, yes, it would help if I added it to the router's list of permitted MACs]

Entirely mortal retribution: "But Mr Robertson faced his own retribution yesterday when the Israeli Tourism Ministry pulled the plug on a £40 million partnership with the controversial preacher to build a biblical theme park on the shores of the Sea of Galilee."

wolff_slaven, go here! ^_^ (And anyone else in need of a cute ferret or two :)
 
 
 
 
 
 
Finally, it looks like I'll be able to get some good new furry shirts into the wardrobe! Or bag, given how much I seem to be moving around, and the negligible amount of space here. ^_^; Hope he'll come up with further designs. Steve Purcell's definitely one for quality over quantity..

Oh, you awkward Windows user, you! Here, have a PSP-friendly version. Plain MPEG-4, rather than H.264, and with the internal curlicues just the way the PSP likes it. Smaller frame size, but it still looks pretty cool anyway. ^_^

(Wonder what the problem is? It's fine under the QT Player and VLC here, though Mplayer can't see the video. That version's getting a bit long in the tooth now)

I wonder what action the FAA's taking tonight? Seems like the view from 35000' ought to be pretty good.. !
