I think one thing I'll do is shoot for the Wikipedia. It would be fun to see how many images I could get in. Of course, there is nothing to stop me from starting that now…. Hmmmmmmm…. (sound of wheels turning)

Big fan of Linux. Just checked the uptime on a machine I have it work. It's been humming along for 250 days. Not that that's a big deal for a Linux box, but it's just cool.

Selena, "I Could Fall in Love with You" from her album "Dreaming of You". One thing about the auto playlists that Yahoo creates is that they sometime throw weird shit in there. Somehow Selena came in with a playlist of artists "Like U2". Ummmmm, No.

Beck's "Jack-ass" from Odelay! If you thought that you were making your way To where the puzzles and pagans lay I’ll put it together, it’s a strange invitation

I'm pretty much the only person at work who does what I do in terms of technology. To the point that I've been told (several times) not to build things because if I ever leave no one there would know how to fix something if it broke. A couple of times I've responded with "What makes you think my stuff is ever going to break?" just to see the reaction which basically amounted to: Uhhhhhhhhh….. (And no, I'm not that arrogant, as time marches on, things hard drive fail, things get updated or changed, etc… and basically everything gives up the ghost at some point. I've been doing a lot of coding work over the past week and have built some really nice tools. One of the things about being the only one who does this type of work though is there is no one around to appreciate it. I'm happy with myself as I realized (again) that this basically doesn't bother me at all. Sure it's nice to hear compliments from time to time, but for me, it really is the process of creation that has the reward.

Picked this up off Boingboing: 1995 winner (mp3). Talk about a fast talker.

In an IM conversation with Travis the following message came up: "yoda talkin ninjas" If I had a band, that's what I'd name it.
