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.

1-14-05  LJ images
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.

You might need a refresh/browser restart to clear out the old style sheet, before the peek-a-booing actually works.


I've also enabled titling of posts, but these titles won't show up anywhere besides on the post-a-comment page.


I'm testing a new "peek-a-boo" commenting system. Old system on the left, new system right next to it. Let me know what you think... (you may have to do an option/alt refresh to see the site properly).

this is a test.


Blah de blah


So everyone knows the 8x8 rule, that you are supposed to drink 8 (8oz.) servings of water per day, or 1.9 litres. This is because you lose 2.5 litres a day, but water content in food makes up the difference.

But do you have any idea just how much water that is? I've been keeping track of my water intake today, and I'm just about to finish my 3rd bottle (for a total of 6 x 8oz. servings) of Calistoga, and I am feeling a bit like this.

Add.: Ohh, I just read that booze counts towards the total, though not 1:1. Even so, that already puts me over by several litr... erm, I mean I don't have drinking problem.

My XP desktop at work

My Tiger desktop on the powerbook; two main HDs above, with backups attached.

I don't have desktop pictures. Just colors.

All you really need to know about a designer someone, you can learn by looking at their desktop picture.

I had drinks with an old ex recently. Everyone should have a post-mortem, a few years removed. I learned a lot about myself, by being reminded of this one characteristic about her--which was simultaneously one of the best and worst aspects of her personality. She was the most supportive person I've ever known in my life. Whenever I had doubts she would tell me that I was capable of extraordinary things, that I had it in me to be the best at everything I cared to try at. She, as the saying goes, was the woman you would find behind the great man. And ultimately, this is where it broke down for us as well. I would try to talk to her about an inadequacy I felt about myself, and she would deny the possibility entirely. Reality, was something we could not always agree on.

I am exhausted from flying all day, and not sleeping all week. Last night I woke up screaming, not in terror, but... something else. The first nightmare was such a cliche. Some gory intruder going through the kitchen cabinets of my hotel suite. I've had terrifying dreams, but this was stressful, not scary. I remember his face very well, because he stood staring at me before I woke. The second nightmare was a little girl with her back turned to me, at the threshold of my room. I walked toward her, and she turned around and looked at me. There was nothing unusual about her, but I felt the need to scream. And I couldn't make a sound. I kept trying, until I woke up in my hotel room, yelling. Pretty loudly.

I've had a grin on my face all weekend. Will post photos of why, soon. In the meantime, let it be known that if you have a little yappy dog, I will kick it when you are not looking. Fair warning.

Folks, I'm selling my car. If you know someone in the SF Bay area who is looking for an 2004 Acura RSX, please send them my way. Thanks!

Hey, I have unlimited CARFAX queries for the next month (yes, I know they're mostly worthless--but it did save me from a potential mistake today). If you need one, email me the VIN.

P.S. If you think BMW drivers are assholes, you should meet the dealers. :(
