Random quickie-mind blobs.
- If you can't afford to buy your dream house, create them in photoshop. Better... make them look edible.
- PixelPalooza winners from Icon Factory. I have this 'thing' for desktop icons. I strongly believed they are ewoks or some other cuddly character from Star Wars before they were reborn in this era.
- Who needs Albert Einstein and education when you can measure the speed of light using marshmallows..? Oh you can even eat the marshmallows after the experiment.

E, for those not blessed with a Ph.D. and a job at Google, is Euler's number, which is used as the base for natural logarithms.

- The latest from mind control technology, eh? MY relationship with my pet pterodactyl uses a technology two steps ahead of this one. But I don't have any plans of sharing it for now. Besides I'm not sure if it is error-proof already. I haven't seen my pterodactyl for three months already. If you see one with a barcode in it's neck that reads '0987253251129' please be kind enough to inform me. Just be careful not to touch the mouth part... the pterodactyl's saliva is equivalent to superglue.
- May 2004 issue of MSDN is out. It even has a downloadable .chm version.
- Ever wondered why Microsoft settled with Sun? Well that at least is according to Tom Yager.
Hmmm... seriously, anyone have any ideas how to track that pterodactyl of mine?
