u-shape-it

Hm, Shapeways has an API. If I were a skilled Web programmer I’d make a page where you can choose the size and frequencies of a Klein bagel model …

Firefox 4

I miss the popup menu of recent pages in this tab, that was beside the back/forward buttons in Firefox 3.

The bar at the bottom of the window has gone away, to save space for content; status notices now appear in floaters over content, in the same place. I’m not in love with this behavior.

Apple’s TextEdit refuses to save as .txt. What’s up wit dat?

don’t trust the clock

I just noticed that, in the time shown for posts and comments, the month-number appears in place of the minutes. From the format settings it seems to be a WordPress bug. It’s not the host or PHP, because in WordPress admin pages the time is correct.

changing every day, every possible way

I’ve consistently noticed that my “home” in my dreams, though it seems normal during the dream, almost never resembles any place where I’ve resided (nor indeed any place that I recognize).

Now I find that the principle applies not only to dwellings! I had a dream involving “my” pistol, which resembled a Walther PP — a type that I don’t think I’ve ever handled.

why walk when you can stagger?

I got AT&T DSL because it’s a third the price of Comcast. Suddenly things go wrong: I can’t write here, or back up this site; I can’t save my edits to a Wikipedia article; and an article at the New York Times never loads. (I’m writing this on Comcast.)

Wednesday filler

meme goes meta

When I decided I wanted a domain, about ten years ago, .nu was the cheapest registry. It’s now €60 to renew for two years; I suspect I can do better than that. So don’t be surprised if my address changes on March 28.
