This game would be better if it were random, but still kind of fun.  I think 17 seconds was my high score on my desktop, and I just it again before posting on my laptop, and I only got to 11 seconds.  Perhaps I am just more tired, or else it might be showing the difference between a mouse and touchpad.

I got a couple spams through my Lime Daley contact form the last couple days, so I took another look at the script that I was using.  I wrote it a year or two ago, and was my first attempt at writing an anti-spam tool that was designed to have a 0% false negative rate (ie. humans can't possibly fail - as opposed to the image recognizer thing, which I fail about 20% of the time, so I imagine less technical people people must fail and/or give up more often than that).

The one on the Lime Daley page isn't as good as the one I wrote for this blog, but I took a look at the statistics this morning, and it blocked 544 spams last month, only allowing three through. (More)

I read that Harry Potter invented electricity, and that it wasn't Benjam Jam, so it must be true.

My voice has a problem with not being able to be understood by most auto-voice phone systems, and you can only say "Tech Support" so many times before you wish you hadn't ever called in the first place.

Here is the answer to that problem - a list of how to get to a real human when talking to a computer for lots of different companies.

I have been meaning to get around to putting at least some of these in my "Links" panel on the right, though I suspect that it would be too long to place all of them there.  But, anyway, here are the blogs that I read regularly.  (The RSS feed reader makes it possible to manage, and the fact that I read quickly) (More)

I came across an interesting chart on Beth's blog.  Just how rich are you?

I am waiting for a hard drive to copy, and so was browsing around the "Sacred Sandwich", and came across these advertisements.  And don't forget the poor teenage pilgrims

I found this article at Ed Bott's blog, where it shows some screenshots from a spam control client-server piece of software.  It looks pretty neat -- if you're into that sort of thing.

It doesn't quite look like him, but you certainly could imagine it being him.  (Maybe even me? -- nah, I'm probably too old or something)

If you are willing to sign up with Google's checkout program, and mail in a rebate, you can get a USB 1GB flash drive for $6 from buy.com. The sale will last until tomorrow. It is their most popular item at the moment -- I wonder why....

Hi newtech1. This is how it works. I previously bookmarked the "bookmarklet" on the new post page, and then while viewing your post, I went to my bookmarks and chose the javascript bookmark, which opened up the new post page, with the below already in the "text" window.

I was poking around on Slashdot, a site I used to read regularly, but then decided it was taking too much time. I found an article about Microsoft trying buy a portion of Yahoo, and apparently Yahoo rejected their offer. (More)

About a year ago I realized that the search results from search engines were returning different index pages from this blog, instead of the actual article that contained the term that the person was searching for.  This is because the index pages only show the last 10 articles and are updated regularly, so the version the search engine has is often out-of-date. (More)
