Meh. The guestbook and comments aren't working. If this were the 90's, I'd put one of those animated "Under Constructed" GIFs on here. I'm working on adding an RSS feed to my home-rolled blogging software, too. Anybody out there? Send me an email.

Well m'er f'er!!!!! They're ending the alumni accounts for IU Computer Science graduates. As a result, this piece of my web presence is going to go poof very shortly. I will probably set up base, temporarily or otherwise at: http://mawilson.freeshell.org/

So, this is what a video game orchestration looks like.

I got some pretty interesting answers on Ask Metafilter when I asked, Can a hermaphrodite impregnate themselves?

Say, I says to myself, where do Multnomah County librarians eat, read, shop, relax, watch, ramble and learn?

If all Bangalorians are like Honey, I pity Americans about to graduate college. They're up against a hungry, polite, Excel-proficient Indian army. Put it this way: Honey ends her emails with "Right time for right action, starts now!" Your average American assistant believes the "right time for right action" starts after a Starbucks venti latte and a discussion of last night's Amazing Race 8.

Liberal Crime Squad is a text-based RPG where all three branches of government have been taken over by conservative forces and it's your goal to take them back (by successfully completing popular crimes against them). Topical!

I almost forgot about PDX Popo. I wonder if it's still relevant in the post-Potter era? Well, it certainly is, but I still get a kick out of Bug-Eyed Vera.

Meh. Once upon a time I put the unobtrusive NedStat webcounter on this page, but they went and turned evil. Sorry about the popunder ads, I just didn't know. So, I fixed the main page, but it might take me a day or two to delete the rest of the NedStat counters on my site. I also need to find a new counter. Oh well, it's not like I update or get visitors here too often anyway. Teehee.

From the golden age of the videogame RPG came Mother and Mother 2, AKA Earthbound. Huh. All those (hundreds? thousands?) hours killed playing Dragon Warrior I-IV and I never became a vegetarian. I did learn what "thou" and "thee" meant, though. (via)

So, I had this epiphany that I should just stop pretending to be too cool for school and join Friendster and My Space already.

Blogs are so pretentious, right? So, I tell myself that this is just a place for me to dump my interesting links. (In truth, I want to be loved and adored by everyone, but everyone wants that so it's boring.) Anyway, lemme shoot out a few of my current favorite online haunts:

  • Lifehacker
  • Metafilter
  • Engadget
  • If ya wanna buy me a present to express your love and adoration, you could hit Geeks.com or Woot, but I'm a super-secret anti-materialist, anti-consumerist, anti-hyphenist, so ya could just say hi.
