14:56 My finger hurts. Discuss…

19:55 @commandertim gets a couple quotes in on this strib article – www.startribune.com/lifestyle/55470337.html – nifty.

21:19 There is a cricket in my garage. Been there for a few weeks. May be time to bring out the napalm.

22:08 Trying the official Nullsoft Twitter plugin for Winamp- @Zoyxtunes. The stream of folks using the plugin – bit.ly/eWD6T

22:25 I owned this cart – bit.ly/3F5Lj – I wonder what happened to it. I envision it being set on fire in some sort of ritual.

17:52 Think I found the problem with the cluster. The node is overheating, resulting in auto-underclocking. Low profile heatsink must go.

18:15 Beautiful evening out. I think I’ll bring the Atari outside this evening.
