As with a low sucking sound it slowly disappeared again, Starbuck still gazing at the agitated waters where it had sunk, with a wild voice exclaimed—“Almost rather I had seen Moby Dick and fought him, than to have seen thee, thou white ghost!”
      “What was it, Sir?” said Flask.
      “The great live squid, which, they say, few whale-ships ever beheld and returned to their ports to tell of it.”

Moby-Dick, 1851

Guys, FURL sucks. It has sucked for years, and I'm sorry I've been using it. I have switched over to delicious; I would have done this much sooner, but they made it really difficult the last time I tried.

Uhmm, apparently archives haven't really been working since late 2006. THANX for the heads up guys! They are temporarily fixed, and will stay temporarily fixed until I migrate to new software/layout. I have said some hilarious things in the last 7 years, that future generations will feel lucky I preserved. Go check them out.

Woah, it's been 3 years since the last news update! Fuzzysquid now has a webclips icon for your iPhone! It'll automagically show up when you add FS to your home screen. Atom and RSS feeds have been available for a few years now, but I never made special mention of it.

Since it seems to be popular, and it's been linked in a lot of different places besides here, I've decided to post the LJ Images page. At least in the news, at least for now. It's also getting some Google ads because you LiveJournal people are sucking up all my bandwidth (35% for that one page!)

Check out what I've been browsing: FURL.net bookmark archive. Not much commentary, relevance, or sequitur—but it's what's keeping this blog from turning into a meme dumpster.

i pass onto you the final words to the class of 1999 from rev. peter gomes at senior class chapel (one of commencement's traditions); the inimitable doctor gomes took no prisoners as he began: "you are going to be sent out here for good, most of you aren't ready to go. the president is about to bid you into the fellowship of educated men and women and.... you know, just - how - dumb - you - really - are!" "and worse than that, the world - and your parents in particular - are going to expect that you will be among the brightest and best. but you know that you no longer fool all the people even some of the time. by noontime today, you will be out of here. by tomorrow, you will be history. by saturday, you will be toast. that's a fact - no exceptions, no extensions. " "[nevertheless, there is reason for hope, doctor gomes promised.] the future is god's gift to you. god will not let you stumble or fall. god has not brought you this far to this place to abandon you or leave you here alone and afraid. the god of israel never stumbles, never sleeps, never goes on sabbatical. thus, my beloved and bewildered young friends, do not be afraid..." (he continues by tying this into the story of the woman at the well, anyone who wants to hear the rest of it, can email me and i'll try my best to paraphrase what he said...)
