Out of mourning, on to Xmas

The mourning period is over. Yes, UK has bragging rights for the next year (but barely, and a questionable barely at that), and Louisville continues to have bad luck, but there is a gleam of hope.

On to other matters, the New York Times published an interesting article on Firefox saying how the fox is in Microsoft’s henhouse (and salivating) (reprinted at CNET for your login-free perusal).

The people at American Antigravity are doing some cool things. Maybe this means my dream of having a jet belt, or something similar, will finally come true.

I love small innovations that don’t really seem like that big of a deal, but offer some simplistic improvement to your life. These cool ‘disc hubs’ do exactly that. Stick them to a flat surface (verticle or horizontal) and pop a CD or DVD onto them for easy storage and retrieval. The only downside is the price, but I am sure someone will come out with a cheaper alternative soon.

First there was Tiny Linux, then there was Pocket Linux, and now comes Damn Small Linux, a 50MB operating system that will fit on your USB drive. You can boot to it, or even install it on your PC. I will be testing it out over the holiday season, and will report the results later.

Lastly, I have added a Paypal Donation button to my Music page to hopefully get some fundage for the hosting of all the free MP3’s I offer. I’m not requiring anything, just hoping that if you download some tunes, you help keep them alive for the enjoyment of the next person to come along. 🙂

Adios for now, cucarachas.
