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.

When I got home yesterday, our mail slot looked like it wasn't feeling well, with letters were spewed all over the garage in a mass of paper vomit. This of course, meant election day was drawing near, as the mailman had the happy task of shoving 4 copies of the San Francisco Voter's Guide down our poor mail slot's throat, each of which is like a phone book. Well. White pages, anyway. Look, it's a thick book, ok? But that's not the point. The interesting part of this year's edition is a proposition on the ballot that would prevent what was originally known as Candlestick Park, home of the 49ers, from being called anything else. Naming rights were purchased by 3Com several years ago, and we've suffered through the indignity of "3Com Park." But that lease expired in 2001, and the city has reached a new (tentative?) agreement with a certain company for a $6 Million contract over 4 years, to be split between the team and the city. Now, normally, this would be a no-brainer: San Francisco is not for sale, $3M is chump change, corporate sponsorship killed my father and raped my mother, etc. BUT. BUT! The company that outbid Oracle, Virgin, Macromedia, is... Monster Cable! That's right, our park would be called... MONSTER PARK! And! The founder of Monster used to be in a band called Asian Wood! See kids! Local politics is "awesome!"
