WebmasterMac: Macintosh > Applescript > Sample Talking Computers AppleScript Years and years ago, there was a program using Apple Events that would get multiple Macs to play music in harmony. "Axel F" was the sample song, if that tells you anything about the vintage. Point being... the more things change, the more they stay the same! :)
Sauce : Products Amazing what three simple colors can provide. (This comes up because Apple just filed a patent for this same -- patented -- technology. So, who knows what they have up their sleve, and whether their pattent will be approved, and whether they'll license the Sauce technology, and...)
:::::___coin-operated.com___::::: STREAMINGMEDIA - 2002 Using water as an organic network between two computers. I wonder if this could have helped during a Y2K crash? Probably not... :)
Whitley Strieber's Unknown Country Okay, you're going to think I'm nuts... but this story (about "ratbots" -- rats with electrodes in their brain so researchers can control and "steer" them) reminds me of something I thought of years ago: aerial recon. by using large birds (like geese, maybe?) with video cameras and electrical brain stimulation to guide them. I agree that there are ethical issues... but it's better to put a rat or goose in harm's way than a human.
WorldNetDaily: CIA releases new 'Noah's Ark' documents Lots of folks out there hunting for lots of stuff...
Cambodia's 'Beer Girls' Learn The Dark Side of Selling Brew A very, very sad story I came across while following up on a lead for some debate research. It's a rough world out there...

If the folks in my office think my stuffed cat is cool, I wonder what they'd think of this? Items matching ( furreal )
Dark Blue Affiliate Network Hmmm... good to see there's another way to make money on the Internet. :)
Official Commemorative Discs I'm very tempted to get these. I was introduced to Art Bell years ago by my Dad, and he was quite an interesting nighttime experience.
BESTBUY.COM With any luck, I can buy this tomorrow. (Yes, indeed, I'm using my blog as a poor-man's bookmark. Sad, isn't it?)
CaringBridge - gregtolaas My memories of my first day of class at UST consist of two things: John Buri giving us a mercifully brief introduction to Honors Psychology and then sending us on our way... and Fr. Greg Tolaas handing out doughnuts as students streamed in. I'm glad to know he's alive and "as well as can be", and will keep praying for him with renewed vigor...
MIKE WENDLAND: Behind the scenes, spam's even uglier SPAMmers are bad, bad people. But you already knew that.
Mac Addicts to the Rescue WOW! This guy is GREAT! I hope the perp goes to jail for a couple decades...
Matthias's Marble Machines page If I ever have to pick up an absolutely, totally worthless hobby, this will be my first choice.
Building a megapixel digital camera from a flatbed scanner Frugality breeds creativity... or something like that. Did you ever think that Iraq would be tolerant of Christian evangelization?
Iko Iko - Wind-up Sheep Cute! But I'm trying to find the one that appears in
David Hasselhoff is the AntiChrist An interesting example of created Bible twisting.
CPR Home It took a kinda convoluted path, but eventually I found out about this tool for "calibrated peer review". Looks like an interesting concept -- and helps reduce instructor workload! (Put those students to work! Make them do your grading and call it a project! :) )
Personal Technology -- Personal Technology from The Wall Street Journal. Things just keep getting smaller and smaller, don't they?
minnesota north star : home If you hate telemarketers as much as I do, and if you live in Minnesota, you'll want to visit this site...
Design a holiday greeting card @ KMARTBOXERS.COM!!! I can't believe this guy has his own web site!
