Deep thought with me over last night's code.
"Never ask for a name. Ask instead what those you meet would like to be called" - Doctor Occult
Well, I got boosted from bedski at the all-to-early hour of 5am, so I'm up up up, now. I'm pleased that the server is behaving the way it should, now, as there were errors getting into the primary login database last night.. I'm glad we have multiple servers for just such an occasion.

It was remedied quickly by a remote reboot of the server, but it shouldn't have happened at all. That's just pesky.
Argh.. I didn't recognise paidmembers (I thought it was news), and I thought gael was nomi. Reasonable confusion, given the snippets, I think.. 80% is not too shabby. I like the idea of it taking little bits and pieces like it does. it's good for "cut-ups".
otakukin : A livejournal community for people who sincerely believe that they're the reincarnated souls of cartoon/movie/literary characters (frequently more than one). Found via this rant. The people there seem nice enough.. it amazes me that LJ can group of *any* kind of folks together. I wonder how many folks actually believe, how many are just play acting for fun, and how many are play acting to see what sort of replies they'll get? I wonder how this extrapolates from the "I'm Napoleon" sort of belief of folks in an earlier time, imprinting on a famous person (or persona) out of some need to be someone else?
Lost and Found Sound at NPR, including the only known recording of the lost South African language of Kukasi.
Is this *the* Sally Brunot's daughter? Also in Virginia.. Sally and Bill were great friends of the family, and Sally worked with my mother at the hair place in the 70s. I'm inclined to send her an email, and see what's what. She looks quite a bit like the Sally we knew, too. I found out about the person by reviewing my web-hits.
Does Paul Shaffer sing the Aladdin cartoon theme? It's sort of funny picturing a little bald dude with Lennon-glasses singing it. I know he's the voice of Hermes on Hercules.
I hear that Michael "I've never turned down a role yet" Caine is in talks to play Alfred Pennyworth the new Batman film. That's kind of wacky, but par for the course. The live-action Thunderbirds movie is just wrong... though...It'd be cool, but screwed up if they had live action people *MADE UP* as puppets. I'd pay money to see that.
Cinnamon spice produces healthier blood (via flying_blind)
Just half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day significantly reduces blood sugar levels in diabetics, a new study has found. The effect, which can be produced even by soaking a cinnamon stick your tea, could also benefit millions of non-diabetics who have blood sugar problem but are unaware of it. ( Collapse )
