Odds and Ends
- I hate waiting in line for things. Last weekend while Debra and I were waiting for the doors to open for the home show at the convention center, I thought I'd get a little exercise. (It's a 4-megabyte QuickTime video so it might take some time to download. No sound.)
- I bought a unicycle on Saturday and am learning to ride it. I've managed not to hurt myself yet. I can get about four pedal strokes (approximately 10 feet) before I lose my balance. Pictures as soon as I get the knack of it.
- Bananagrams will deliver a singing telegram by somebody wearing a banana suit. Hey, at least it seems to be a going concern.
- Bananagram.com, featuring BanaBot, was going to find the cheapest prices on common grocery items so you could save money by visiting six different stores. This is funny not for the questionable premise, but for the "news" on the site. November 2004: launched with high hopes. December 2004: hire fly-by-night Russian developers to create the site. June 2005: with a pretty .JPG mock-up and no more money, the failed project is abandoned and left as a warning to everybody else. Investment opportunities still exist. Act now!
Okay, so I haven't had a lot of time recently for writing blog entries.
