Link Round-up


Too many links, too little time

August 31, 2003

Tomorrow (assuming the asshats at my ISP continue to provide me with service), I'm going to change the back-end of my site from Radio Userland (my subscription runs out in, oh, about seven minutes) to Movable Type. This isn't even interesting to me, so I'm not going to explain how or why. However, knowing how these change-overs normally go, I may suffer some service interuptus. Here's a link round-up to tide you over:

Some quick and dirty links:

  • A really poorly organized page about computer gripes. A classic example of not designing a Web site to scale over time, but still interesting reading.
  • Colleen offers an entertaining rant about things she dislikes, which include 'ads in bathroom stalls' and 'Cougars (not the animal type'. I must start on my own.
  • Flying anywhere soon? Don't look at this page.
  • On a related subject, more flight-related angst.
  • RadShelters4U, should our fears about North Korea's nuclear program come to pass.

Yes, it's a link round-up with a theme! Ooo, aaahhh. This one's all about new technology gadgets:

  • A great idea for classical music noobs: a handheld device that provides real-time information about the concert concert you're attending.
  • A car that parks itself. Hopefully by the time I'm a septuagenarian, they'll have cars that drive themselves too. Get on that, car designing guys. This is also handy because both times I've damaged a car, it's been parking.
  • Finally, a tracking device for the masses.
  • Air traffic controllers may go the way of the buggy whip and the non-self-parking car.
  • How sci-fi. People getting busy trying to replace the light bulb.

Links for the memories:

  • Be the first on your block to own a wireless chair.
  • While looking up the word smoot (a unit of measurement equalling five feet, seven inches), I re-discovered the most excellent Jargon Dictionary.
  • Laundry care for men. I take issue with this, as I'm a careful and thorough laundry-doer. In fact, it's my favourite household task.
  • This man is crazy (thanks, Bike Trouble).
  • The complete works of Troy McLure. Favourites include 'Leper in the Backfield' and 'Suddenly Last Supper'.
