I put together a little page for my journalist bit. It's small but useless, just like the mp3. But, at least I linked the other two clips that inspired me to do that one.

2600 tomorrow! It'll be a thin meeting thanks to Defcon, but I'll be giving away a pile of print server cards I trashed.

I accidentally zapped my last entry, so I'll reiterate: check out this telco ninja. His recent raid of a telephone company facility can be seen here.

Speaking of ninja, I've started a contest to find a Japanese name for myself. More info and a place to post suggestions is on Cal's Forums, here. The winning entry will get a mystery prize from my junk drawer.

My mom just gave me an old "Expectant Motherhood" manual her obstetrician gave her when she was carrying me in 1977. It offers much wisdom to the new mother of the 1970s, such as this gem:

"It seems clear that the newborn of mothers who smoke tend to weigh somewhat less than those of mothers who do not smoke. But whether this lower birth weight indicates an injurious effect has not been established. Regardless of these findings, most physicians recommend that smoking should be eliminated in pregnancy or at least curtailed to ten cigarettes or less a day."

In other news, I updated my old screengrab today. Yes, I'm still on Windows 98 on this PC. And yes, I'm still using 800x600 resolution. But at least I still have my hacked Start button icon, as per the article I wrote four years ago.

Yeah, I know, Windows 98.  Grumble grumble..

I have gotten hold of a very important recording. In it, a news reporter interviews two RIAA-convicted users if mp3 fileshares. Click here for the mp3, and please let me know what you think of it.

Every so often, I'll find something on the web that I wish to Heaven I'd thought of first.
Something that could totally revolutionize the way people look at the world.
Something that finally puts technology to the use it may have been working toward all its life.
Something pure and good and wonderful.

Something like... this gif.
