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.

whoa, what other mushrooms do you grow. wanna ship some over. i doubt you could bring those onto a plane. i also, ordered another mo's bacon bar. Is there any other stores with exotic candy bars cause vosges' s&h fee is just ridiculously.


I have shiitake and oyster mushrooms. The haven't been doing too well, sadly. The first batch started growing and then a heat wave hit, which made it a really small harvest. The second round happened while I was away on vacation, and I wasn't able to tend to them like they needed. :/

You can get your own log and grow them. I would recommend doing this in the fall or spring though, unless you have a basement that doesn't get too hot, and gets some light.

Re: bacon chocolate, I get them from a candy/magazine store around the corner from the office. I'm sure there are places that have them in NYC. No need to have them shipped.

Also, I tried the bacon lollipop yesterday. I don't like it.


yea, i tried the bacon lollipop. it was too sweet.



Dudes, I love growing my own mushrooms. They smell and taste so good, and I have been there every step of the way, from spore to harvest. The only thing preventing me from naming them all and making a scrapbook is that I am certain some board of directors in the future will be mining this website for reasons to declare me unfit to lead the company.

Foldit, a game made by two medical researchers in collaboration with some computer scientists and with consultation from some game designers, tap into people's intuition where raw computer processing power isn't enough. Basically like Folding@Home, but instead of donating idle CPU cycles to do useful work, you play a game:

"Some people are just able to look at the game and in less than two minutes, get to the top score," said (UW associate professor of computer science and engineering) Zoran Popovic. "They can't even explain what they're doing, but somehow they're able to do it."

One of the most interesting parts is that they've incorporated competition into the game: between gamers playing for a high score, and actual research groups.

One of the questions I think about a lot is how graphic/visual/interaction design could change the world; it's interesting to see how game design could change the world.
