I’ve moved to San Francisco. Why? As one of you commented, San Francisco girls are cuter than San Diego girls 😉
I’ll be joining DoubleTwist Ventures.
I love sago pudding. This is the recipe that I use:
1l milk (proper, not the fat-free crap)
4 tbsp butter
10 drops of almond extract
1. Bring milk and butter to the boil in a microwave oven.
2. Add sago and cook for about 20 minutes, stirring every few minutes.
3. Add whisked egg and sugar. Mix carefully.
4. Add drops of almond extract. Mix.
Serve cold with cherry sauce.
Sunny San Diego? Bah, humbug! Misleading advertisement, I say.
Compare the forecast for La Jolla and San Francisco:
Apple recently sent a frivolous copyright complaint to Something Awful by email. Apple has a history of using their copyright agent to send out frivolous complaints (e.g. when they tried to get FairPlay support removed from VLC). If a company has a complaint that is even remotely legitimate, they’ll have an actual lawyer send you a cease and desist letter by postal mail.
A friend of mine sent me this screenshot of the Windows Live Messenger installer.
I bought these gloves a couple of weeks ago for biking. They’re great, although they’re not quick-drying as BlackHawk claims.
This comment over in the Ars forums:
The need for backups was more of an issue back in the days of magnetic media, where the originals could and did degrade over time to the point of being useless.
reminded me of this comment by Jack Valenti, former president of the MPAA:
Where did this backup copy thing come from? A digital thing lasts forever.
A while ago I bought GoldenEye on DVD. New discs of this Bond movie are not being made anymore so I bought it used. The disc did not have any noticable scratches yet all my DVD players were unable to play the last 30 minutes of the movie. Most likely a bad case of DVD rot.
Jack, DVDs do not last forever, but comments such as this one probably will:
I say to you that the VCR is to the American film producer and the American public as the Boston strangler is to the woman home alone.

I am selling the following items. If you live in downtown San Francisco I will personally deliver the item(s) to you.
Update: The Nokia 770 and the iPod have been sold.
Audiobubble isn’t your average online music store.
It began in early 2005, when two musicians, Shaun Russell and Tom Chambers, decided to create a music service that was fair to artists and fair to customers. Tired of puny 30 second previews, lack of customer trust and lack of freedom for the artist, they created the Audiobubble concept.
We don’t use DRM because we know it isn’t consumer friendly. Shame that Napster, iTunes and other online music giants can’t wake up to this fact. Audiobubble is about freedom. Join the revolution!
I signed up for an account and was listening to previews in no time under Ubuntu Linux. The only information asked for during signup was email, username and password.
