I get these little "binges" where I go out and run around the net looking for fanfiction and webcomics when I get bored - so for today, some really good webcomics.
Why do I like firefox, and open source in general so much? A security flaw is found in firefox (yeah, they happen, they're actually rather expected) Secunia says - this is a very bad thing
Ajaxian is probably the stupidest name ever - course I think ajax is a stupid name soo... these geeks and their obsession with cleanliness...ajax, soap...
Rebellion Chapter 01
By Aurora Eos Rose
Take a look at my nifty spifty creation - a huge old map of Innes, the mythical place where rebellion takes place, did this in photoshop and learned some neat tricks.

rebellion is starting to take shape now, and I've decided it will only be "released" here until I've finished it in it's entirety, too many annoying fans get pissed at my slowness - see if you can figure out who's who, i give physical clues in each "scene"
Googlefight is my new late night fun - type in a couple of words and see which gets more google hits is the basic idea, but it's damn funny all the same.
I love alan and wez - no I mean it.
Although the performance isn't perfect yet phar is alive - personally I'd like to see this implemented right in php instead of as a pear class...but that's just me.
Documentation for xhtml 1.1 has often eluded me, but this is a nice way to see what is where and what's deprecated without losing my mind
I really hate IE - I can use the wonderful mozilla dom reference but of course IE doesn't do it right so I have to use Internet Explorer's version

Read an interesting article on how Tie-in books (e.g. star wars, star trek, et al) are gradually crowding out original stories.
So, when I was using CVS as my versioning system, there was a nice little program that would automagically send pretty colored diff emails to a mailing list when commits were made. Well now I've decided it would be a good thing to move to SVN - so I installed it, got it set up and …
Someone is finally working on some svn bindings for php - I love you Alan.
Evilness - look at that, Adobe wants to buy macromedia. Can you say MONOPOLY. Besides, flash is just evil. It's real nice for 1. games at kid's sites, 2. fancy shit on "artistic" sites e.g. singers/movies/actors webpages. But flash just to drive people nuts...gah.
For anyone following the often amusing, usually just annoying SCO vs. IBM case - you know the "I own linux" argument, things are starting to wind down. SCO is running out of money, and running out of time. Pretty soon there won't be anything left - I really pity any REAL SCO customers.
I think reporters currently suck - hell the news media in general sucks. No longer do they research their stories and present unbiased, two sided views of issues, problems, and actions. Now it's simply a feeding frenzy for lots of hits/lots of viewers. Ridiculous.
I don't know whether it's a good thing or a bad thing that a head spread firefox guy is moving on...
Well - it's interesting how much "press" (I have a very dim view of press in general) is bashing firefox security, which is amusing for me. It IS inherently more secure than IE for the simple reason that it's not tied into the OS, and anyone who thinks differently needs to read some more. It WILL …
I love webcomics, both the hand drawn, should be published kind like my favorite psuedo-manga Red String and the funny, let's take old game sprites and do something that can make you pee your pants like 8-bit Theater
Well, I'm a bit bummed. I didn't get a single submission for the fanfiction contest, and my own doesn't really count, eh? So the contest for shitennou is officially canceled. Maybe I'll try it again in the summer, as school winds down people have more time to write and be involved. Maybe it's just the sailor …
well, it's tax day again, and time for you americans to fork that money over to uncle sam, or in some cases get a lot back. income tax has always seemed like a strange beast to me, you'd think they could figure out a method of withholding that would preclude both paying in and getting huge …
