    • The book After Man: A Zoology of the Future imagines what animals might look like if humans went extinct, and absolutely captivated me when I was a kid. Neat to see a new edition is being released. Recommended!

    • Cleaning up Prairie’s old G4 #iMac to be given away. These were such adorably cute machines! And it’s fun to be using MacOS 10.4.11 again, with its stylish brushed chrome UI. Kind of sad to be letting this go, really, but we haven’t used it in six years, so it’s better to let it go […]

    • I’ve decided that my #tinydinosaur is named Toby, in honor of The West Wing’s Toby Ziegler, who is cranky and snarling at everyone all the time. (161/366)
    • Chucks of the day (10/?): black and tan low tops with tessellated flaming (or horned) skull design. #chucks #converse

    • Dammit, Monday. I already knew this was a Monday without your having to go and make it a seriously Monday-ish Monday. Can I get a do-over?

    • Bonehead As I waited for the bus to roll to a stop, I peeked out the windows and scanned our parking lot for the car to see if Prairie was back from her morning jaunt with Hope. The car wasn't in the lot...
    • Trifecta Point one: A news story about a Darwin Award contender. Point two: _great_ headline. Point three: horrid choice of ad banner (probably automatically generated).
  • 2005
    • Seattle Polite As I stood there, the car coming down the hill slowed, stopped, and the driver nodded for me to cross. I pointed at the light -- 'You've got the green, buddy...' -- and he just waved me across.

    • Little details Former Microsoftie Will Parker has an interesting post about the Microsoft Mac Business Unit's work on a generally under-appreciated aspect of software publishing: the packaging.
    • VisitorVille Apache log file analysis plus SimCity equals VisitorVille, a program that displays your website as a city, with traffic represented by people moving from building to building (page to page), and arriving via bus (referrers and search engines).
    • Enough already Yes, yes, we know. Reagan died. Can we get back to reporting about more important things now, please?
    • No longer the top of the heap Well, it lasted longer than I thought it would, given how fast technology advances, but my dual 2.0 Ghz Power Mac G5 is no longer the top-of-the-line machine from Apple.

    • That'll stop them! Our Attorney General wants to make terrorist attacks against military bases or nuclear plants a capital offense.
  • 2002
    • Needles and bottles and junkies, oh my! Apparently, some of the tenants next door feel that using garbage cans is more trouble than it's worth, and prefer to toss a fair amount of their garbage out the window and into the alleyway -- everything from smashed TVs to used syringes, all mixed in with a generous helping of broken glass bottles.
