Ceci n'est pas une personne.

sea_of_change points out what a great word jaunt is.

It is a great word. If feels perky when it rolls off the tongue.

I am just wondering how long until some car manufacture get's it's hands on it. Ford has the Excursion and the Expedition.

So... I think it's once again time for some audience feed back.

Two questions, and no such thing as a wrong answer:

  1. What are some great words you would hate to see corrupted by marketing?
  2. What are some horrible words that you would find amusing if someone was foolish enough to try to use for marketing purposes?

If you are like me and you have an excessively large image collection, imgSeek might be for you. It's an image search engine that let's you do a rough sketch, and use that to search through the images!!!

Anyway, I may try to install it this weekend and test it out.

Since I'm in an obviously inquisitive frame of mind today...

How do you sort your cloths in your drawers?

When I can be bothered to fold stuff and put it away, I put them in order of size. Big stuff the bottom drawer. Small stuff in the top. So Socks and undies on top, the shirts, then sweaters, then pants.

My friend (it's a discussion with her that made me curious about this) sorts by where it goes on the body. The higher up, the higher the drawer. So Sweaters on top, then shirts, then undies, then pants, and finally socks at the bottom.

Then there is another friend who sorts by cronology and space. The stuff just washed goes on top of where there is room.

What is your scheme?

Why get really crap major label music from iTunes, when you can get just mildly crappy independent music from ALB? From Slashdot:

"MacCentral just posted an article on Audio Lunchbox, an online music store dedicated to music by independent artists and labels. ALB offers all of its music in DRM free MP3 (192 kbps) and Ogg Vorbis (Q6) formats with iTunes style pricing and a completely web based and platform independent delivery system."

One of those random things I was pondering today. On the moon landings they took still pictures. In fact, they used a Hasselblad camera. Now film is very temperature sensitive. The warmer it is, the faster the chemical reaction can happen when light hits it. Now space is very cold. But because the is no air to help dissipate heat when you are in the sunlight, it gets very hot. Was this camera just well insulated, or did it have it's own environment control system? Also, while I doubt it's the case, but would a vacuum affect the film exposure? IF so, was the camera made air tight?
