More Catching Up Links

Mmmmm, yummy slightly stale linkages!

Follow the life of a cat through pictures taken by the cat. Well, sort of.

Mika Brzezinski is so sick of the Paris Hilton nonsense that she refused to read the story on MSNBC, attempting to light the copy of the story on fire, then ripping it up, then shredding a second copy of the story. Here's a YouTube video of her actions. YAY!

I didn't get to post that Julie Amero gets another trial after the idiotic original trial. This was a non-techie substitute teacher who was told to NOT turn off the computer, and was unable to deal with it when explicit porn pop-ups started to appear. She was facing 40 years in prison for something she didn't do, and has suffered irreparable harm to her life and reputation.

DRM will never work.

More Disney-fied Fair Use.

Idiot Publisher disgraces himself by stealing a laptop from Google.

I like Comic Sans for VERY SMALL bit parts on my Aquaman page. I don't like it anywhere else. I'm not alone.

1900's Laugh Out Loud Cats.

Wireless Lightbulb.

The more I read xkcd, the more I like it. Bloggin' bout my generation...
