Nothing either good or bad...

Discover magazine offers their list of the top 100 stories of 2008. Read about how Dell and HP support HPC. Watch the video "Radiation" by Eddie Jobson's new band, UKZ. See what's up at the University of Wyoming's CFD Lab. Om Nom Nom Nom. I won't be having a chelada any time soon. Or a chocolate beer for that matter. Integrity Ware introduced EXLib, a multi-threaded tesselation engine. ESI Group announced the acquisition of CFD consulting firm Mindware. Proof that butter can be stored unrefrigerated.

In a move that strains credibility, PETA has decided to rebrand fish as "sea kittens" in a pathetic attempt to evoke sympathy. Of course, PETA sees this rebranding as "obvious." There's even a "save the sea kittens" web site. Please, someone tell me this is a vast joke, that Ashton Kutcher has punk'd all of us. I would be thrilled to learn that this is simply an exploitation of my gullibility. This is so blindingly stupid that I am forced to respond in kind. PETA = People for the Eating of Tasty Animals. If god didn't want us to eat animals, why'd he make them so damn tasty?

Back to our regular inanity. Katy is an artist who cooks. Z89, the beat of Syracuse. ("Good morning, Syracuse! John Roberts and Scott Stevens with you. J-P-Z time - bing bong - 5 minutes past the big hour of 1 a.m.") You can cross stitch this Zelda map. Know your cheese. Here's a big map of the Star Wars universe. Find out who's hosting a site. Get rid of your ouchies with Debacterol. SolidWorks World will be held 08-11 Feb 2009 in Orlando. This list has all the formats supported by Acrobat 3D. Comic book styling of Mario and Luigi. Bacon vodka is more proof of the perfectitude of bacon. The Big Picture presents the earth. SparkMaker is an Excel plug-in for creating Tufte's sparklines. How to visualize large tree structures. 3DxLabs is a look inside developments at 3Dconnexion.

...but thinking makes it so.
