ROBOT FOOSBALL! (29 May 2003 at 12:03)
I keep telling those damn robotics institute folks to make one of these, but the Germans have finally done it: ROBOT FOOSBALL. It looks like it plays pretty decently--we need one of these in the CS lounge!

Tombats on Adult Swim (29 May 2003 at 08:28)
Tombats on Adult Swim
640×480 version
My fonts have appeared on TV again, this time on the only show I watch any more, Cartoon Network's Adult Swim! Here, most of the drawings surrounding the text are from my Tombats series. The screengrab was caught by the ever vigilant fast fingers of inpheaux skifyre, just like the time tetanus was on CNN.

UPD: Muddle (28 May 2003 at 21:16)
I upgraded muddle in several ways today. First, I limited it so that a single host can only be in two games at once--this should cut down on the recent practice of joining all the games and then only playing the "good" one. Second, I lowered the in-between game time to 25 seconds. Finally, I added rotation and flipping and transposition arrows so that if you get stuck and can't find any words, you can hit one of these for a spark of inspiration!

snoot.org's scribble has now passed a million words. That's crazy.

Muddle, which has been running for much less time, is almost there with over 800,000 words in 72,000 games.

And, sad to say, I now have made 1500 Posts to slashdot.

RIAA Radar (24 May 2003 at 23:39)
Now you can see if you are supporting the despicable RIAA when you purchase a CD. I was sad to see that Matador is an RIAA member, since I have an awful lot of matador stuff...

1987 DandD (24 May 2003 at 23:21)
This T-Shirt for the 1987 Dungeons and Dragons International Convention features the CMU SCS "dragon" logo. Coincidence, or did this ultimate geek event happen at CMU? I can't read the tiny text to tell, so, you be the judge...!

The new smartelectronix site has opened, finally! Our Destroy FX project is part of smartelectronix, and I helped with some stuff on the main site, like the random slogan generator at the top.

Levitated (19 May 2003 at 12:45)
There is a really cool collection of computation art at levitated.net. You need flash to see them; just go there and click on some of the little pictures.

Are you a witch? (15 May 2003 at 10:15)
I was looking for info on a band called "Curses and Kisses" playing with the decemberists tonight, and if you search for anything with "curses" in it on Google you'll discover that there is a thriving community of on-line curse (and other spellcraft) services. The promises they make are hilarious and sad at the same time. What really struck me is that apparently my fonts are a key ingredient of spell casting since they are all over the page. So remember, when you use Tom's fonts, you might be a witch.

(You wonder, if their money spells really work, why do they need to charge you?)

Things I've Pushed Through Toast (13 May 2003 at 18:25)
The irrelevance of this page made me chuckle, even though I haven't found toast funny in and of itself since high school.

New Ca$h Money BLING (13 May 2003 at 13:17)
Well, here it is, the New Design for the $20 bill. I was really worried that they were going to make it look really dumb and cartoonish like Canada's money, but it's not so bad. Of course, we can expect that the new $5s, $10s, etc. will be colored pink and yellow and stuff to distinguish them from this, so I withhold judgment on those...

BAD SAT SCORES (10 May 2003 at 11:53)
Some of you might remember that during college I talked a lot about going back and taking the SAT to try to get a perfect "0" score on it. (Since you lose points for wrong answers, this would mean getting every question on the test wrong, not just leaving it blank.)

Well, now some guy has already tried. It turns out that your lowest possible score is still a 400 -- slightly lower than the 470 or so that you'd get if you left the whole thing blank. Anyway, he ended up getting two questions right, and so he didn't get the worst possible raw score, but it is still a funny page to read.

I'm starting to move my old albums from their previous home at mp3.com (where you can now only have 3 songs) to my own web server in my office. I've uploaded #13 Examine Machines and Enrich (not previously available!) and #12 Image Gap Committee. More soon, plus new updated AAD homepage...
