Link. I wrote this back in the 00s and it’s a 00s style web page. I feel it’s worth mentioning every decade or two. Emily suggests adopting NASCAR style logos for our Congresspersons to wear.
Link. Now they will all download. I’m glad I’ve not used the iCloud Drive device document cache feature.

Link. PowerPhotos makes Apple’s macOS Photos.app suck much less than it sucks. (And suck it does.)
Link. “even though Canada is not directly involved in the ‘Quad’ project, such a confrontation may delay or even sabotage the whole idea. It is a thoroughly terrible idea, because the last thing Asia and the world needs is a huge new military alliance ‘containing’ China.”
Link. Mammals … “might be replaced by coldblooded reptiles that could tolerate the heat.”

Link. Presumably parents pay on the side. There’s now a migration industry. The real question is why the military doesn’t change the government.

Link. I suspect the fines are a pittance.
Link. Anecdote in animal language article. I think original recording is very old.
Link. I suspect it’s not much of a may.
