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.

4-21-08  Archives
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.

Well, we (collectively) are in the middle of a series of worm attacks, and hopefully everyone got patched and secured in time. Which, I know to be untrue, as evidenced by all the e-mails I've gotten today with a subject line of "re: Thanks!" Yeah, thanks jerk. But I forgive your attempts at spreading contagion to me, because I use OSX and none of this virus/worm nonsense affects me anyway--but I've pretty much given up on mailing you back and saying "you've got a virus" because the inevitable reply is "no I don't." Oh really. Guess who's not getting a Christmas card this year.

On the bright side, I am fascinated by all the people who I don't know, who have my e-mail address somewhere on their computer. I've been trying to figure out what the connections are all morning--like the woman who I think I e-mailed once with about dog breeding, while I was at CMU, who is now at UVA... which confuses me because I didn't have my fuzzysquid address then. I wish these worms would attack more, as I want to know who has my e-mail address but has never written me.

UPDATE: the from address is spoofed, so I couldn't lash out at those responsible even if I wanted to, but I think there's one or several infected computers on the CMU network that is sending everyone I know (and their mom--literally) e-mail. More info about the Sobig.F worm. So if you or your mother have gotten strange e-mails (seemingly) from me today, please ignore. Unless of course you're Jessie's mom, in which case, Thanks!
