2002-07-22 10:46 UTC Throwing Fire Ball 4s from a tree is so much fun

After an exhausting weekend saving Draxia from the four elemental Dark Ones (with help from the Ba Da Boom tribe), I am glad to see that the real world is a happy place after all.

This human is a star, I wish we had more like him.

This cat is very lucky, although he points out several flaws in the system (1. why are cats held in the baggage hold instead of with the humans, 2. why did the airline not find it while searching the it in the first place, and 3. why does Britain have a six month quarantine law).

And finally, these cows should be praised for their friendliness.

I am really concerned for hyatt's mental health. First he goes to work for Apple (!!) and now he's considering getting a dog!! The guy is obviously ill. Does he not realise that mowmows are the holy creatures worthy of his worship and not dogs?

So hyatt has taken leave of his senses and gone to work for Apple. Talk about a step down.

He's probably going to work on some iProduct. Given that hyatt's skills lie mainly in inventing new markup languages and then half-implementing them, one has to wonder what iProduct this could be. Maybe he's going to work on iPhotos (or whatever it's called) and is going to be inventing a new kind of Photo Metadata Language. I already know one person who's working on something like that. Or maybe he's going to invent a language to describe worlds and he's going to spearhead an iWorld application. Yes, that's it. Then MMORPG authors could use that to get their work done quicker. After all, that's what the Mac needs, a killer application to make it useful. (Then again, maybe that's a lost cause...)

This will hopefully be the last time I link to so many Apple sites. Ugh. I feel so dirty.

2002-07-12 14:53 UTC Freak hack of the day: "please enable javascript"

I cannot believe that this works:

<script language='JavaScript'>
	<!--
		document.write('\<!--');
	//-->
</script>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1; URL=/otpbvpl/javascriptenable.jsp?..."dummy="dummy">
<script language='JavaScript'>
	<!--
		document.write('--\>');
	//-->
</script>

(I found it at the top of Opodo's site while trying to work out why their site doesn't work in Mozilla.)

2002-07-11 09:02 UTC Traditional Sillyness

Today I have to wear silly clothes (a shirt with buttons and a gown for crying out loud) for my graduation ceremony. There are some traditions that really need to be updated. Why couldn't I pick up this certificate thing in a pair of Jeans and a T-shirt, I ask you?
