Thanksgiving journey complete (with links)

Sunday, November 29, 2009

My posting frequency continues to degrade here. I appear to be struggling to post once a month these days. But I do tweet something to Twitter on a daily basis. Probably best to follow me there.

This weekend I returned to Oregon from my cross-country, family-visiting Thanksgiving journey. I had a great time catching up with family and old friends. It was also the first Thanksgiving since my senior year of high school (1996) that I was present for dinner with my mom and siblings. That was nice. I guess I’ll have to wait to break out the “Lazy man’s Thanksgiving dinner for two” until Christmastime this year.

In addition to the many links I have posted via Twitter lately, below are a few more items I’ve liked (or found interesting) since late October.

Dodgem Logic Alan Moore, art and design

Creepy animals and science

Bohemian Rhapsody

More music

Prisoner jacket The Prisoner replica jacket

My friend Warren made a Prisoner jacket for himself for Halloween this year. He took a navy blue blazer and sewed some white piping (white bias) around the edges. Looked pretty good, but it’s still tempting to buy an Official Prisoner Replica Jacket, to be used for all future interviews, weddings and funerals.

Keanu Reeves is immortal

I found this amusing: Keanu Reeves is immortal.

DIY automated sentry gun

I would like to reiterate something I posted to Twitter a few weeks ago: I require a sentry gun to monitor the kitchen counters with a water pistol, accompanied by audio of Cartman yelling, “No Kitty! Bad Kitty!” This article was the inspiration for the idea: “This DIY Automated Sentry Gun Looks Terrifyingly Easy To Build.” That, plus living with housecats.

Web development

I will finish up here with some useful links to JavaScript/AJAX accordion scripts: 10 Javascript Accordion Scripts (various JavaScript libraries) and Rico Accordion Example (Prototype-based).
