Happy Father's Day to all you fathers out there, including my own assortment
(now in three flavors: biological, step-, and -in-law). Also, as noted
is back online, again, thanks to Richard
"Bagpuss" Smith for the Chatbear
code he modified to suit the project. We are still fooling around with certain
things, but even without further tweaking the new system is working out great so
far, and perhaps most importantly, the issue that plagued the old forums (other
than design) of an occasionally extremely high CPU load, does not seem to be
rearing its extremely ugly head. Finally, to repeat something else on the
subject loony already mentioned (from the department of redundancy department),
messageboards for topics other than the news will return as soon as this week.
Link of the Day: What
Historical Military Leader Are You Most Like?. Thanks Ant,
whose result was Stonewall Jackson, while I ended up Napoleon Bonaparte myself.
Story of the Day: Woman
Bites Dog (CNN). Thanks Thrasher. The classic definition of news comes true.
Media of the Day: The only pimped out lawnmower that
I ever saw (Sounddomain.com). Thanks Major Jam.
Follow-up: Though the fruit incident is not mentioned in the summary, 30
Minutes Over Tokyo on The Simpsons.com is the episode description where
Homer buys a square watermelon in Japan just like the one mentioned in
yesterday's (how appropriate) Fruit of the loon (story). Thanks
