Minimal update today; I haven’t been following many of my usual sources. I’m off to go play catch-up; hopefully I’ll be able to send you into the weekend with a nice old-fashioned stick-to-your-ribs update.

Query: Has anybody come even close to implementing anything like jwz’s Intertwingle idea? I had to search for some mail the other day, and it sucks having to grep multiple folders for some half remembered phrase. Freshmeat searches weren’t productive, and before I start devoting some of my ever-shrinking free time to doing this myself, I’d like to know about the existing options. Even if it’s just some kluge-y thing you’ve thrown together for your own use, please let me know!

Well, at least the McCain staff has a sense of humor.

It’s Jam Echelon Day. Here’s the /. post for those of you who weren’t aware.

On one of the mailing lists I’m on, the list mom just sent out a “Play by the Rules” mail. With copies of body of the text and the initial instruction mail. As attachments. Of. Binhexed. Mickeysoft. Word files. A 1643 line netiquette flame spam. From the list-mom. The mind reels. The body unsubscribes.

It’s been a while, so here’s some Scary Devil Monastary for ya:

…a project I’ve always wanted to do. Get a shit-load of that Habit-Trail stuff. Run it ALL over the house (or at least 2 or 3 rooms), along baseboards, up walls, everywhere. Seal it good so the critter’s can’t get out, or anything in. Put about 6 hamster’s in it. And then get a couple of cats.

I envision endless hours of enjoyment.
