Nokia N800 and Verizon Wireless

I recently bought a Nokia N800 Internet Tablet. It was $220 from TigerDirect through Amazon. It runs a Debian-based Linux, and works remarkably well as both a web browser and pocket-sized mp3 player. I have paired it with my Verizon phone (LG Model VX8900) using Bluetooth, which is handy for browsing the web when I […]

Century 10101

There’s a Century 21 Real Estate office in the Salt Lake City area, at 10101 South. I’m curious whether they knew when they chose the location that 10101 in binary is 21 decimal.

I’ve been googling for the lyrics, but all I’ve found are some failed attempts to recite it from memory (and some inferior attempts at original parody). WHY are […]

Browsing through photos of bugs on Flickr, I found a reference to Thanks to that site, I saw a photo (taken near where I live) of a Jerusalem Cricket. I’ve never seen such a critter, but it’s a great looking bug! I used Google Images to find a relatively high resolution picture of a […]

Head Shots of Deceased Celebrities on IMDb

I would like to see imdb feature head shots of deceased celebrities free of charge. Once a celebrity is dead, imdb is less likely to make money on a head shot, and it would be a nice memorial/tribute to the celebrity to display the picture. Also, they could probably get a little positive PR out […]
