You may have noticed things shifting around on the page here. I’m adding back in some of the stuff we used to have on the page, like links to friends and the calendar and such. Let me know if something you knew and loved isn’t here yet, and I’ll pop it back on in a jiffy.
Making the site look like something other than the default WordPress theme will take a bit longer than a jiffy, but I’m working on it. I’m also working on Global Spin themed t-shirts, but who knows whether I’ll unleash those on the world. (Hint: there’s a distinct “freak” theme.)
Have a Prius? Wish it could get 100MPG in the city? Maybe the Prius+ is for you. It’s a PHEV, a plug-in electric hybrid, which lets you recharge the batteries from an outlet as well as from the car’s motor.
The details look a bit daunting, but the folks behind the project are demonstrating that they can convert a Prius in a weekend at this months Maker Faire in the Bay Area.
Guess which amazing sci fi show just won a Peabody Award? You have to scroll down to the bottom to see the blurb. But it’s the first evah for the Sci Fi channel. Yay!
I should have never found out about MyHeritage’s Face Recognition program. You can upload photos and see what celebrities their face recognition software matches you with. My most frequent matches were Melissa Gilbert, Renee Zellweger, Juliette Lewis, Marcia Cross, Kirsten Dunst and Emma Watson, with the occasional (and weird) Harrison Ford, Englebert Humperdinck and Conan O’Brian thrown in. When I ran this photo, Karen’s top match was Clark Gable and mine was Keith Ledger. So that was weird. Who do you look like?
