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.

UPDATE to my rant from a few days ago. Well, apparently, the way to get some attention from a certain cell phone company (starts with C and rhymes with fingerhair) is to write an angry 2 page letter detailing their trangressions and threatening to slander them with all my clients, and email that to all the c-level executives.

An hour later someone from the Office of the President called me and promised to fix it. She said it would take up to 5 days to get a definitive response from the tech people. And I agreed! WTF! It's like an abusive relationship!

telco: "we can change!"
me: "yeah fucking right, I've heard THAT before"
telco: "come on baby, don't be like that! It'll be different this time"
me: "oh... alright, but you have to do anal take off some charges"

And! And! then the weasels I named in my letter (I named names) called me up and were all "erm... yeah, remember how we said before that there's no way in hell you're getting out of your contract without paying the early termination fee? Uh, we can let you out of your contract without paying the fee now, so uhm, I've gone ahead and marked your account for termination tomorrow! Let's forget all this ever happened!"

Oh ho, no you don't! Not until I get someone's head on a platter. THE DAY IS MINE!
