If you ever owned a a paper punch specifically for double-siding your floppy disks. If youRead More
I generally don’t forward along memes, youtube videos, or whatever, but having just seen this one in Steam’s livejournal, I know enough cat owners to know it’ll be appreciated. Have the sound on, it makes it all more apropos. Totally worksafe, assuming your coworkers can handle “mrow?” and “BWAHAHAHAH”.

Following the train of gakkedness, Alyxyn referred to Tom’s website and noted that a discussion had sprung up on The Straight Dope regarding Tom’s list. I reproduce it here for your enjoyment: You don’t think of citrus when people mention “The Oranges”. You know that it’s called Great Adventure, not Six Flags. A good, quickRead More
Heard on IRC today: <dirac> I was amused earlier today when I read someones translation of Ubuntu: “African word meaning “Can’t install Debian”” Geek humor at its finest, I suppose.
(As written by Evan Parks of NYC on The Cycling Forum : All who are in need of spring training, come and ride with us. All who are hungry, come and partake of our carbohydrate-laden treats.
