If there's a dignified way to handle stupid rumors about someone's private life, then Joanne Siegel has done so with her open letter, posted here by Colleen Doran.

Grease Monkey chapter one for free online. Looks like a massively fun book.

Tomorrow is Towel Day. Carry a towel with you all day.

Bird Flu is passing from human to human, but still no need to panic, yet. This is similar to several other cases, but so far it hasn't gotten contagious enough to make the fears of a pandemic real.

Lewis the cat goes to court. The violent cat is the terror of the neighborhood, and his owner is fighting to save him.

"Please fix Scooby Doo because he saved my life." Soldiers bond with robots.

The $100 laptop has been revealed, and there may be a way for me to get my hands on one... this site is trying to get 100,000 people to pledge to buying one for $300, with the extra money going to funding two more for people in developing nations. The project hasn't agreed to it, but it would be cool and I'd love to get one of these.
