The first link has a list of songs that, when read, may trigger your own little personal earworm. There is some interesting stuff about Mozart in the second story however. (:

Mozilla.org is getting yet another website redesign. This new one looks really nice, and is a progression from what is currently on the site. It is a cleaner, leaner version which works well with a nice flow. It is a big leap from the original design or one of the intermediate versions.
I designed the Fedora site with 4.01 strict in mind as making sure everything would be valid XHTML quickly, especially with legacy documents and many different contributors would have been painstakingly difficult. I did make sure that it validated (right now, the problem is encoding, but I assure you that it works fine internally — somehow the document encoding got messed up on the public-facing site; I’m hoping that it will be fixed soonish), at least on my end of the design and implementation. Using CSS for the presentation was a no-brainer. CSS is great. (:
I’m guessing the legacy pages and multiple contributor factors weighed in with the decision to go with 4.01 strict versus XHTML * for Mozilla.org too. When you choose XHTML, you’re choosing XML, and your pages should really be well-formed. XML parsers often show no mercy.
Speaking of designs and redesigns, I really need to update my very own website’s look sometime again too…
Tonight marks the 65th anniversary of Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds radio broadcast based on the book by H. G. Wells. Many people thought it was the real thing, something the broadcast has been known for.
I actually heard the broadcast in my seventh grade social studies class in middle school, and I believe we heard it on this precise date, many years ago, in celebration of the anniversary.
The light was nice and I had my camera with me… so this past time I drove up I-95, I stopped at South of the Border and took a few pictures of the colorful, wacky place.
