I have to agree:

'So in answer to Rod Humble's question - Any thoughts on what you would do to create and retain long term users ?
LOWER TIER. There is no trigger to pull other than lowering tier. All the other triggers will shoot blanks.

Linden Lab appear to have so little faith in their own technology, they think if they lower the price they will make less money. WOW how short sighted that is. This is a sad story of lost visions and lost dreams.'

Better to be safe than sorry, I guess.

Goofy Water Toy


I'm intrigued that someone thinks the package might contain a sporran.

I like being in this lacuna between times of knowingness. It feels like a respite, a pivot-point, outside time and space.

Wow - SL is going to be on Steam. That's an interesting development.

I was trying to charge the 'Pod and it wouldn't work. I thought maybe the plug had come out of the wall but couldn't do anything then as I was hot and weak. So I was just lying there and an hour or so later someone outside yelled to someone in the next house that everyone's power was out. It just came on - meanwhile the weather changed and it's cool.


Been watching Kill Bill vol 1 as it's free on Hulu. It took me a while because it's like a very, very long commercial or a very, very long trailer. There's no 'there' there. It's a sustained style note that gets old fast. Meh.

Ha Ha!

ninemsn reports:

Soft drink giant Pepsi has taken down a website where customers could vote on the name of their new flavour after it was swamped with internet pranksters.
The "Dub the Dew" marketing campaign asked users to suggest names for its new green apple flavoured Mountain Dew.
Users of the infamous online forum 4chan quickly took up the challenge, overwhelming the campaign with votes for names such as "Diabeetus", "Moist Nugget" and "Fapple".
The site was taken down and voting was disabled after the name "Hitler did nothing wrong" topped the list, Hypervocal reports.
While 4chan is best known for its acts of mischief, or trolling, the community has also earned a vigilante reputation.


My brain MRI was completely normal. My neck MRI was completely abnormal. Dr C thinks I may have Devic's Disease aka Neuromyelitis Optica. Somehow I have to muster the energy to have a bloodtest.
Right now I feel 99% dead.
The other thing he thinks it might be is Lyme Disease.
Dr C: of course I'm from Liverpool but neither of us has much of an accent.
Me: We like to fly under the radar.

When I saw these pictures I thought, 'Proof of time travel!' Then I looked at the Reddit comments and everyone thought that.

Had four MRIs today: head/neck, with dye and without dye. SJ took me; two hours in the toob in pain was not fun but they said I had done very well and things were clear. Neuro on 15th. Headache now.

Air Conditioning
The Pentagon spends $20 billion a year just to air condition tents and temporary buildings in Iraq and Afghanistan. That's more than NASA's entire annual budget.

And also:- 3,703 times the federal funding for NPR
- 573 times the amount spent on Pell Grants to send economically disadvantaged students to college
- 80 times the amount spent on renewable energy research AND subsidies
- 55 times the amount to fund Planned Parenthood
- Twice the budget of the ENTIRE EPA.

I don't know why Curiosity captured my fancy. I am not usually much interested in space doings, and hardly gave the other Mars gear a thought. Who knows - I just go with the flow at this point.

Hot, so I'm just trying to survive. Yesterday was miserable.

I want to ask for thoughts about improving the world -- what do people need? How can things be organised?
