I was going to procastinate for another week or so, but Galeon is using an obscene amount of RAM, running slow, and generally making web browsing an unpleasant experience. See, when I stumble across links I'm interested in, I usually just keep a tab open until I either bookmark it (effectively losing the URL forever) or add it to my page so other people can appreciate it. So, when I don't update my page for a while, I end up with a web browser that has 50 tabs open, eats 140 megs of RAM and takes 5 seconds to open an empty tab. Enough of the rant; on to the fun stuff.
Here's a funny article from a "Creationist", attempting to bend what the big bang to fit with some wacky ideas they got from a book. Here's the least comfortable seat I've ever seen in a truck (although it appears to have more room in the dashboard than Tom's entire car). Here's a really useful REpublican Speechmaking page. Here is the best page in the universe. For the computer geeks, this page has stats on virtually every IRC network out there, this page has more information than you could possibly ever want about bypassing a non-executable stack (a new feature in OpenBSD), and this page talks about time travel, paradoxes, and other cool physics stuff. Sequitur is a really cool text analysis engine. EPIC dissected the good old Patriot Act; you can read their analysis here. Prototype Optical Camouflage. If you're looking for a fun game in Linux, check out Racer and Racer-Xtreme. Here's a cool article (linked from KernelTrap) about the optimizations performed by Intel's compiler. Here is an interesting article on Intel's site which expands on the information presented in the article. Everyone should check out the Unofficial GUI Timeline; it's missing some stuff I think is relevant, but overall it's pretty well done. Here is an article by Seanbaby, and here is an awesome Ninja Turtles PSA review.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot my list of inflammatory political articles. To keep things interesting, I've organized this list into convenient groups, so you know what you're getting yourself into.The Rest of the World Love the U.S.

- How I spent my summer vacation.
I finally added some new stuff to my sidebar! FreeType2-Ruby is out (sorta), and so is MusicBrainz-Ruby. The former is alpha (eg, it will crash), and the latter should be stable (eg, it will crash, but I won't be able to figure out why).
