A whole lot of lenses

Tuesday, September 30th, 2003

From "seawasp" on #photography on irc.freenode.net shared the following page with the channel today: a whole lot of Nikon (cameras and lenses)

All I can say is, "Wow."

Mega-Man vs. Metroid

Tuesday, September 30th, 2003

There’s a little flash game that is essentially Mega-Man vs. Metroid (click on "Play this Game!"). I played a little bit of it and it seems pretty accurate for both the Mega-Man character and the world of Metroid. If you have played either game for the NES (or both, especially), then you will probably get a kick out of this little flash amalgamation of the two popular game series.

Cooking with soda

Saturday, September 27th, 2003

Evidently, you can cook with 7-UP and Dr. Pepper. "Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda" (7-UP) also keeps roses blooming for 7 to 10 days, according to the DPSU "fun facts" page. Also stated: Dr. Pepper does not contain prune juice.

Evidently, you can also cook with Coke too. There’s always a Pepsi pot roast or the Pepsi cake with peanut butter frosting for you fans of Pepsi as well (although I do believe that swapping out Pepsi for Coke or vice versa should work).

One can also make Mountain Dew cake, but you have to be careful with Mountain Dew, as it is considered a "gateway beverage". (Joke)

I’m not too sure about cooking with soda, but I do really enjoy root beer floats. As far as baked goods go, I’d take brownies any day (now at least) over Pepsi cake (or any other soda-made food). After all, chocolate is good for you, right? (:

Mmmm… Chocolate.

World Beard and Mustache Championships

Saturday, September 27th, 2003

This year, it is going to take place in Carson City, Nevada. It’s the World Beard and Mustache Championships. Be sure to also check out their gallery too. (As seen on Dave’s Journal.)

All I can say is "Wow."

Librarian action figure

Friday, September 26th, 2003

Check out the librarian action figure (article), complete with an "amazing push-button shushing action". Her weapon of choice: the Dewey Decimal System.

When was the last time you read a good book? Which book? Was it something you bought or was it from a library?

I am currently reading Cold Mountain. It is a fun read, although the author. Uses many fragments. And starts sentences with ‘and’. Also lacking quote marks for dialogue. Many strange dialect’n words appear too. Hard falutin read’n makes it. Good still.

Fedora Core test2 release

Thursday, September 25th, 2003

Fedora Core, test2 has been released. Read the release notes, download the test2 release, and/or sing along with the announcement. (You can even utilize the not-so-latest in MIDI technology to aid your singing.)

(Note: In case you’re wondering, I was not involved in the writing of the announcement; I was too busy finishing up the splash screens and other graphics. *smile*)

Anyway, enjoy the Fedora Core test release!

“The Reason for Evil”

Thursday, September 25th, 2003

Charles Sebold, on his website "Living Torah Journal" answers the question "how can a loving God allow all the suffering and pain in this world?" in one of his most recent entries titled, "The Reason for Evil".

As always the case with the writings on his website, it is a fascinating thing to read.
