Joe Pa quote of the week: “Appalachain State, they won back-to-back double-A championships in a row.” He’s going for the Yogi Berra thing, I guess.

TFT Technology Breakdown and Model/Panel Index
Very handy, since I didn’t know there were so many different types of panels. I just bought a 24″ with a S-PVA panel, and I’m loving it.

And Gameday has jumped the shark AGAIN. You can’t say anything bad about them spending TWO HOURS at some crap-ass game nobody cares about, because if you do you obviously love terrorists and school shooters. I guess 90 minutes wasn’t enough time for all the retarded “human interest” stories, so now Gameday will be 1:50 of “my mom has cancer and my brother got hit by a car”, 9 minutes of Desmond Howard looking at a computer, and 1 minute of acutal football analysis. A lot to look forward to this year.

So I go to fathead.com, but they don’t have a gigantor wall-sized Nick Saban icon for my altarpiece. So I rolled over to the Rasterbator and made my own.
I found this obvious photoshop (saban has only been on the sidelines with Alabama once, at the A-Day game, where he wore a suit). I’m 98% sure it’s Coach Fran’s body with Nick’s head from a Dolphins game, but whatever, it works.
After a little cleanup in GIMP, we get the chewy goodness essence:
Putting that through the Rastebator produces this gloriousness. KNEEL BEFORE SABAN!!!
If you want to start your own shrine, here’s the 2.6MB 30-page Nick Saban Fathead PDF.
I think my next rasterbator project will be Gordon Gekko:

Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe (BNSF) – a photoset on Flickr
Wow, these are excellent. There’s even a recent shot of a BNSF locomotive in the getting-rarer-by-the-day green and white BN livery.

I am 93% sure I am getting these for the whole family. This is almost as good as getting a WSJ-style hedcut portrait.

Law Merchant – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Just in case you thought law must be provided by a monopoly (i.e. government):
The Law Merchant is a legal system used by merchants in medieval Europe, including England. Rather than being the result of the edict of a final authority, it was evolved based on common usage.

HowTo Use a Cingular LG CU500 as a BlueTooth Modem with Fedora Core 5 (FC5) on a ThinkPad T41p
A few typos, but more than enough to get me up and running using my Nokia N75. UMTS seems somewhat faster than EDGE, but it’s not the huge bump I was expecting considering this is now considered “real” 3G and EDGE is only 2.5G.
