irrational exuberance (22 Jan 2002 at 09:36)
Here's another of those flash movies set to some amusing foreign music and featuring loads of doctored photos. This one is about economics and consumerism, though, so I've gotta list it! Yatta!

Shell City! (21 Jan 2002 at 22:33)
Shellcity has loads of great tools for advanced windows users. My favorite is definitely PowerMenu, which adds "Always On Top", Transparency, Minimize to Tray, and Priority options to every window!! Perfect!

Solitaire Cryptography (18 Jan 2002 at 14:19)
Schneier has a cool algorithm for strong encryption using a deck of cards. Particularly amusing are his instructions on what to do when the secret police catch you.

UPD: SICO (17 Jan 2002 at 10:13)
Last night I did a bunch of work on SICO. I wrote up a long document on how to play, and added a new piece called a vampire. I also cleaned up the main page and made a new title graphic. This game is done for now...

NEW: Album-a-day #9: Testify In Hockey (15 Jan 2002 at 23:28)
logo Album-a-day:
· about
· latest
When I was home over Christmas break I made another album in one day using my laptop and crappo equipment that was lying around the house. It is called Testify In Hockey and it's finally up on the internet. 9 albums this year. That's an assload of songs!

UPD: scribble (15 Jan 2002 at 15:24)
I just fixed the board layout for modern browsers (it used to only look right in Netscape 4) in scribble. I also wrote up a detailed set of instructions for beginners and experts alike.

I often forget how popular this game actually is -- there have been over 538,000 words played since I put it up last year, which makes for over 21,400 games. Maybe you would like to play, too!

Upgrade Fever (15 Jan 2002 at 11:37)
Upgrades have a funny way of turning into more upgrades. For Christmas I got a geForce 3 graphics card (which has rather helped my Quake 3 score!). This card has DVI-out, and, wooed by the Apple Cinema Displays that I saw while christmas shopping for other people, I suddenly felt the need to have a LCD monitor as well. After an amazing (and probably mistaken) price drop from $1500 to $860 on the 19" VG191 I decided to go for it. (Two days later, the price was back over $1000!)

OK, so the LCD is great, but the pivot software (you can turn your monitor 90°, which rules for reading web pages) crashes my computer. So yesterday I took advantage of CMU's Microsoft site license and got Windows XP for $10. (I don't know if it will actually fix the pivot software problem -- they say that an update is coming out soon -- but like I said, upgrades have a way of turning into more upgrades!) The XP upgrade actually worked really well, and the OS also has other nice features like cleartype for typography nuts like myself. I also saw on TV that using XP will get you laid.

So then, since I love to look at the monitor, I started using my new NTemacs 21.1 and tramp to do some tedious (but the pixels were so crisp!) work on aphasia to support nicer URLs in some of my web software. Phew!

Survivor (10 Jan 2002 at 10:45)
Read on CNN a story about a pilot whose plane crashes in the Rockies; he survives with his passengers and then walks 8 miles in the snow until he gets a cellular signal to call police, then comes back on a helicopter which also crashes, and then he survives that and they all make it out. There's one for the grand kids.

As a result of my continuing Livejournal envy, I've added the ability for visitors to comment on entires in the Radar. Just click on the [comment] link below each entry. I also made some very subtle cleanups that you probably won't be able to notice.

NEW: snoot.org factory (06 Jan 2002 at 13:27)
Check out the quiet opening of the factory section at snoot.org. You can find a new major or try a tasty recipe (all randomly generated with my bizarrely-named software "homework".)

Banished! (05 Jan 2002 at 22:09)
Here's a great list of banished words/phrases for 2002. I agree; never use these! (Except that I would add "touch base" and remove "bots".)
