python no spill

python no spill

I've been thinking about buying one of these for a long time now to take care of the aquarium maintenace that I was doing with a long series of buckets. It was a long tedious process and finally drove me mad when I spilt some water on a monitor I had near the aquarium and nuked it. So I ordered this up from mops.ca and just recieved it here today. It works like a charm and well worth the money if your doing any type of aquarium maintenace (especially if you have a large tank). They're website is very retro seeing as the last revised date is April 21 1998, but in it's own way that is pretty leet :)

number stations

I was doing some random browsing and looking up some lyrics for Boards of Canada and was reading that one of they're songs (gyroscope) was probably based from number stations. Not knowing what a number station was I did some looking and it's pretty interesting stuff. I guess they are used mostly for transmission of messages to spys in the field or so most people think. They are just shortwave radio stations that broadcast very strange things and then strings of numbers. They are very eerie to listen too. You can read alot more information about them over at the wikipedia article for number stations. And archive.org has a large collection of them available to listen too as well in mp3 format.

Flying Spaghetti Monster

This is rather old news, but it was new to me and I found it very amsuing :) It's a parody of the whole intelligent design theory being taught in some schools these days. Well worth the read if your looking for a good laugh... The inverse relationship between pirates and global temperature graph is priceless.

wordpress + images

I setup a blog for Theone the other day and one of the requirements was an easy way to post images. I figured there would be a bunch of good plugins out there, but it turns out doing simple image upload/inserting is more difficult than I had originally thought. After trying a few different plugins however I stubled upon a plugin called IImage Gallery through some comments on some website I ended up at. The installation wasn't to bad, and it does a great job of uploading/thumbnailing and posting the code for the image into the blog. It's simple enough for just about anyone to use, and since it just adds code to the post allows for a bit more control over things by those who want it. I'd recommend it to anyone using wordpress and looking for a better way to post images.
