Online stuff, mostly memes or other Internet things that don't fit another category.

I've just made my very own hell. In truth, I didn't give it much thought, so don't diss my levels of hell selections.

I don't actually know who Trixies or Riceboys are, but I'm going to find out. Hmmm...my 40 second Internet search produced no joy on Trixies, but I did learn what a Riceboy was. I should have known, as I grew up with a bunch of them. Mind you, we just called them 'rich Asian kids with money to burn.'

Trixies, Scientologists
Circle I Limbo

Libertarians, Rednecks
Circle II Whirling in a Dark & Stormy Wind

Osama bin Laden, Bill Gates
Circle III Mud, Rain, Cold, Hail & Snow

Circle IV Rolling Weights

General asshats, The New York Yankees
Circle V Stuck in Mud, Mangled

River Styx

Militant Vegans, Republicans
Circle VI Buried for Eternity

River Phlegyas

Parents who bring squalling brats to R-rated movies
Circle VII Burning Sands

DMV Employees
Circle IIX Immersed in Excrement

New York Rangers
Circle IX Frozen in Ice

Design your own hell

I've started writing a technology column for the Yaletown View. It's a nascent bi-weekly neighbourhood magazine that covers the usual mix of cuisine, entertainment, sex, etc. Despite the fact that Yaletown is something of a nerdistan, I'm going to keep the writing pretty lightweight and (where possible) humourous. I've written for the Web for so long, it's a little strange to have permanent deadlines and to see your work on the deadtree stuff.

My first column is on finding wireless access. The issue it's in comes out tomorrow, but you can get a preview here. Let me know if you've got any requests or ideas for columns.
