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!)

Christ, my tires were half the recommended pressure. HALF. This explains a lot.


TOLD YOU. Check at least monthly. I try to do it every 2 weeks.


PSA, AUTOMOTIVE: Everyone go check the pressure in your tires right now. Er, well, unless you've been driving, in which case, let the tires cool so you're taking a cold pressure. A few hours should do, overnight is better. If they need to be filled, and no doubt they will, drive to the closest gas station (less than 1 mile pls.) and fill to the recommended psi in your manual. I run ~1 psi over (it improves gas mileage at the expense of comfort); running less than recommended isn't, er, recommended. I hadn't checked my tires since I bought the car more than 5 months ago for some insane reason, and I was way low and off balanced. The first tankful after saw a 6 mpg improvement. So go get yourself a decent pressure gauge (as the gas stations' are usually out of whack) and check at least every month. And do your spare while you're at it. Improperly inflated tires will cost you at the pump, as well as shorten the life of your tires, possibly causing them to fail, and in extreme cases, savagely murder your parents and EAT YOUR CHILDREN.
