Today I discovered that our house had a mouse in it. Sadly, we do not have any mousetraps, and when I was talking about my roommates about it (while watching the daily show) dave suggested that we build the mousetrap illustrated here.

He then suggested that we put a webcam on the thing so that we can record the workings of the vermont mousetrap.

Help with the redesign

I just started working on the redesign this afternoon, and I would like to just have a little fun contribution session.

If any of our multitude of readers (that is you yann) could write some one liners describing what this blog is or why you read it, I will include it in the redesign. It is totally like a magazine contest, except instead of getting moderately excited about winning, you will get a similar feeling to when you toss a bum a quarter on a street corner.

some ideas to get you started:

why read if it isn't the deep thoughts of a hot cam girl?
for your consideration: a link that I found on someones personal diary
we are all friends here. OR SO THEY THOUGHT. a new movie from jerry bruckhimer.
if you think you can't write or have nothing to say... check THIS out

anyways... just drop them in the comments section.
and hold onto your pants for the upcoming redesign. it is gonna be a scorcher.

Flag On The Moon: Writing down ideas

Jack Masters has some comments about how he records his ideas. This blog is getting more and more interesting every time there is a post to it. I like it because it is surreal enough to be humorus but feels very genuine at the same time.

almost happy one year old

I was filling out this survey from mit about weblogs, and I noticed that this one is quickly approaching its 1st birthday!!! happy birthday!

I don't yet know what I am going to do to celebrate. Maybe give it a new name and purpose in life? maybe post everyday for the next week?

I wish that I could buy it a present, like a new host or something like that. I don't know if I can afford that though.

perhaps I will make it something... like a redesign?

and because weblogs need links.

a comic that I wrote on the plane home from my vacation.

anarchaic unix problems

I am getting really pissed off at the fact that if I want to run my own server with web applications that I can access from anywhere I have to deal with innumerable problems. I don't mind the scripting, ruby and php and perl are all running fine, the problem that is really starting to piss me off is the fact that mySql is totally getting all up in my junx.

should an application that appears to be 30+ years old really not have comprehensive help out there? perhaps it is the fact that I don't really know why I am having the problems that I am having.

I guess there will always be a place in the world for people that are willing to bang their heads against these types of problems until they get a breakthrough.

(the current problem that I am bashing my poor head against is mp3act)

Boing Boing: Patent-leather thigh holster for cellphones

Boing Boing: Patent-leather thigh holster for cellphones

are any women going to seriously wear this? I think it is hot, and I bet the guy that thought it up thinks the same.

but it really looks like some gun fetish comic book wear.
