Note to self: Perhaps in the future it would be a good idea not to eat at the same time I watch South Park. Potential loss of appetite and all that.
I think I'm going to drop my Wired subscription. It's been a long while since I felt the need to read it cover-to-cover, and they do put their entire articles on the web (delayed by a month or two), so it's not really worth it for me anymore. It seems to have gone downhill since the change in management.
Yahoo buys GeoCities [News.com]. For a few billion dollars. Why would anyone want GeoCities? Turn off the dang pop-up windows!
Looks like I was mistaken in my assumption that the new blue G3 Macs would have built-in video-out so one could use it as the DVD player for a TV. Apparently you have to buy an add-on, Sony's DVMC-DA1 Media Converter, which is (so far) over $400. Yikes. A regular DVD player would be cheaper.
Of course, the Sony box does a lot more than that; video/audio in and out plus a DV (digital video) port mean it would be the primary bridge between the Mac and all other stereo/video equipment, so I'd need it if I wanted to, say, digitize some audio clips from cassette...from, say, a concert of mine or something...
I don't have a deadline for doing that sort of thing, though, so I'll wait for the price to come down or for other alternatives to appear.
I wish I'd written this, but Carol Lay does it better than I could anyway:
Maybe it's a male thing; I know I have to squash the impulse to act that way every so often.
Finally, a cute accidental web artifact: on Windowseat, there was a link to a St. Petersburg Times article about Florida selling the photos from all its driver's licenses to a private firm. (Booo!)
But if you look at the URL itself, that's not what the story's about: http://www.sptimes.com/News/12399/State/Florida_has_sold_lice.html
