Too Busy

I've been too busy to get any posts up.

That should ruin the rest of your day.

USB Devices

Caution - Poindexter mode ahead.

This little gem from Wired....

The plethora of USB ports now offered by today's PCs has spawned an abundance of ridiculous devices. A small culture of collectors has even emerged around odd USB gadgets, and chances are one of them works in your office, displaying his collection of eyesores proudly on his desk.

They missed one of my favorites. The Hello Kitty USB hub.

You can get a matching keyboard too.

What's In A Number

Many people were making a big deal that at one yesterday morning the time and date would be 01:02:03 04/05/06. News articles and emails and blog posts galore. Woo hoo!

Mister Bates mentions it and I posted some geekier than usual (even for me) comments.

As noted by myself and numerous others, if you adhere to european convention, dd/mm/yy, you get another chance on May 4.

Over on this site some one points out a chance in June.

So, for example, if we consider the current "01-02-03-04-05-06" example, the rendering in the new format would be 2006-04-05 0102 03. Now, this doesn't look too promising, but if we truncate the millennium and century dates, as is common, then we can look forward to 06-05-04 0302 01, or May 4, 2006, one second past 3:02 AM.

to which the site owner comments.
Some people have entirely too much spare time...

Ain't it true.
Now about six seconds after 6:06 am on June 6.

That should get the prophecy nuts going.
