Say it ain't so!
Bill Gates is going to be knighted for his "services to global enterprise." What happened to the days when you had to be able to kill dozens of men from horseback with only a longsword and some plate mail in order to be knighted?

I wonder what sort of a graph you'd get if you plotted (number of posts at time x (in hours) vs. (x). I bet it would r3veal a l0t about t3h p0sting hab1ts of our f3ll0w bl0gg3r5.
Happy Winter-een-mas everyone!
For those unfamiliar with the ways of Winter-een-mas, refer to the webcomic Ctrl+Alt+Del. The following episodes will be most helpful (in chronological order): 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 (Don't worry, they're all pictures...)
Incidentally, The character that instigates Winter-een-mas in the comic is named Ethan. I'm also wearing a t-shirt with a picture of him on it at the moment.
Adam and I went to the pub tonight and came up with some ideas for padalpha.org. They're in my inside coat pocket on a pair of napkins. Don't worry, I'll publish a link when there's actually something there worth looking at... for now there's just a gif of the lowercase letter alpha with a polar equation describing how it's drawn. Go math geeks!
So I lied when I said good night... so what?
I found a couple of things on Slashdot that I thought my readers might be interested in. The first is a mention of the Prius, a new car that Toyota is planning on coming out with; the second is plans for a new port of Linux, this time for the Nintendo Gamecube. The guys porting it are the Gamecube hackers and the Xbox Linux team.
I'm still broke, I just realized that most of my blog entries begin with the word "I" (or some contraction of it and a verb), and I need to get some rest.
Blogback: New domains purchased (padalpha.org and padomega.org); Work continues as usual; Epw is currently broke.
