Behold the ‘Acts of Gord’
I may never have come across this site if it weren’t for a friend sending it to me.  But then, isn’t that how we find at least half the good stuff on the ‘net? So, I read the Acts of Gord website, where a video …

The ‘Very Secret’ Journals of LOTR
I first saw these quite a while ago soon after FotR came out.  Having purchased the DVD and watched it last night, though, I was reminded of these by all the suggestive situations involving (in particular) Sam.  Anyway, the Very Secret Journals are a blast …

‘Ownz0red’, A novella by Cory Doctorow
Cory Doctorow (of Boing Boing fame, among others) just published a novella in Salon.  I haven’t read “Ownz0red” yet, but his short excerpt that I read was really interesting and I’m looking forward to grabbing some time to read it over.

An alternate link pseudo-class method

“110 Stories” by John M. Ford
Anyone who really knows me can attest to the fact that I’m not a very emotional person.  I’m not touchy-feely, I don’t get teary-eyed at “sad” movies.  It’s just the way I am, for better or worse.  Well, this time it’s a bit different. Teresa …

Teresa Neilsen Hayden apparently compiled a list of some of the weird classics of the ‘net.  It includes classics like the exploding whale and LOX barbeque as well as several I’d never seen.  Definitley worth a look when you have a moment.

Time-travellers from the future… er, past?
There’s a really interesting account of how you can sometimes see what seem to be time-travellers.  It’s rather interesting and well-written. (via Boing Boing)

Acronyms through Macros
Dave Pilgrim explains how he’s using regular expressions and macros to automate putting in his acronym tags.  It’s very cool, and I definitely want to implement it here.  Unfortunately, to do so it seems I’ll first have to upgrade my MT installation to version 2.2+.  …

It appears that at least one ISP is going to “fight back” against the RIAA‘s plan to essentually hack into customers’ computers.  The Infomation Wave ISP is going to block the RIAA’s IP from it’s network. I can’t decide if that’s a good or bad …

Here’s your inheritance… an ATM card
This is just plain bizarre: a Montana rancher died recently and left his money to his heirs.  Sounds normal enough, right.  Well, in this case, his heirs get their inheritance by visiting an ATM installed in his tombstone.  $300 a week, it seems.  I don’t …

Giving Vision to the Blind
Wired has a fascinating article about a successful artificial vision system. For just a little more than a hundred grand, you can get your sight back.  This is certainly incredible news and quite the scientific achievement. (via Boing Boing)

Godzilla Comes Smashing Down
Toho, the company that owns the rights to Godzilla—you know, that giant, fire-breathing, radioactive lizard that’s terrorized the citizens of Tokyo for decades—is apparently scared that Dave Linabury’s Davezilla blog might be infringing on their copyright and trademark. So, in good company-overreacting-because-it-has-its-head-up-its-ass fashion, they’ve threatened …

How stupid can you be?
This article tells the harrowing tale of 4 British teens trapped for 27 hours.  Of course, it would have been over much sooner if they had simply pulled the door instead of pushing it.  Morons.

Motorcyclists who cut in traffic are bastards
According to a new study by a New York University professor, motorcyclists who cut between lanes during traffic jams are “major dumbfuck assholes”.  Yes, it’s satire, but it’s also true. (via fark)

Spiders in the Afghan War
This is a pretty cool online comic called Spiders.  It’s sort of an alternate-history of the current war in Afghanistan.  Rather interesting and entertaining.  As of right now, they have 3 of the 4 “issues” completed.
