Okay, this one's not for the dial-up people, so much as the broadband folks. Being one of the downtrodden souls in the world without cable or DSL in their homes, I wouldn't even have seen this myself, but for the fact that by the time I'd realized it was fifty megs in size, the first few minutes were loaded and it was just so hilarious I had no choice but to finish downloading it and save it.

It's a Quicktime movie short from Fox Searchlab, exploring the dark comedic twists a man's life takes when a buddy emails him a "not-safe-for-work" url. It was well worth the wait. the way - despite the title, it's not explicit or anything, I'd give it a PG, so don't sweat it.

Neil's Mame Cabinet

Yet another do-it-yourself M.A.M.E. (multiple arcade machine emulator) cabinet. It's a nice one, too, this guy's loaded for bear. Neil takes you through the step-by-step process he went through on the road to perfecting his ultimate arcade dream machine. I'm drooling here, it's been so long since I played a decent game of Robotron, with the right controls for the job.

We Didn't Start the Fire

A Flash tribute to the Billy Joel song, with illustrations and a heartfelt plea by the author to "please not sue" him. Hehe.

Full of Shat

"Another William Shatner Worship Page" diefying everyone's favorite starship captain and dotcom pitchman, brought to you by the Fellowship of the Shat.

Evil Goatees

In the world of television, from Star Trek to Knight Rider, evil twins abound. Whether they're from other dimensions or simply siblings who've gone taken the wrong road in life, all are marked by one distinguishing trait. They look exactly like the hero, but for the fact that they're sporting the "evil goatee", the only thing that physically sets them apart from their clean-shaven (and thus non-evil) doppelgangers.
One word: Ouch.

Okay, there's been so many crazy things going on in my absence I don't know where to start.

First off, an important public service announcement...despite the extremely horrifying nature of this story, if it saves one person out there reading this from suffering a similiar fate, it's worth posting this. If nothing else, everyone should be informed.

Be careful and use that laptop responsibly. Specifically, don't use it while it's in your lap or you might wind up like this poor, poor scientist, who burned himself in the worst possible way by doing just that. The victim was wearing his pants and writing a paper for two hours (uh, yeah) when he noticed a burning...well, if you want to know the rest you can read about it here, don't worry, there are no pictures - however, words like "crusted" and "wounds" are bandied about, so you may want to put down that donut.

OMG! Look, He Updated His Page! It's Alive!!! It's Alive!!!
Hi there, folks, me again. I'm still trying to sort out that topsy-turvy, issue-filled, anxiety-riddled, daily beatdown that is my life world outside this glowing monitor, so, unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time and/or initiative to blog this motha out properly. Heck, I even managed to forget about The Ends' recent one-year anniversary without so much as crowing about it a little.

Tonight, however, I was sitting here, thinking of the frustrated looks on my readers' faces as they sat there at home staring at my after day, week after week...compulsively hitting the "refresh" button on their browser in anticipation of my leaving a precious post or two to peruse and I said to myself, "What the hell, let's do that update everyone's been clamoring for!"
Hello? Is there anybody there? (sounds of crickets chirping in an empty theater)
Oh well, just in case there are still a few of you hanging in there, your patience has been rewarded. I've sorted out a few things, hopefully, and I feel a couple posts coming let's get on with it and get this ball rolling while I'm still half awake, shall we?
