Free Thoughts

Writ­ing a com­pre­hen­sive set of rules for the Fel­low­ship Hall is prov­ing very dif­fi­cult. It seems very hard to bal­ance free­dom with order while remain­ing bibliocentric.

Kroger’s Big K Cola is sur­pris­ing­ly good, and was $5 less for a 24-pack than Coca-Cola products.

I like free (or, GPLed or com­pa­ra­ble) soft­ware. I like learn­ing through exper­i­men­ta­tion. Thus is born the Angel Cre­ator. Go ahead, make an angel.

Akismet has recent­ly blocked spam #1,000 from appear­ing on Ram­blin’ Rick. Thanks, Akismet team!

Many of those blocked spams were in the form of jokes (end­ing with links to dis­count drug retail­ers). Joke spam. Do they real­ly think it’d be more effective?

Sign­ing Time Kids: It’s goofy, but it’s for kids. Sign lan­guage is some­thing I can just bare­ly speak, so I did learn a few things from the episode of this I caught on television.

I have heard that Kel Mitchell died, but his Wikipedia entry does not reflect this. Any truth to this hearsay?

Every myth has roots in truth. It’s a pat­tern I have noticed since the eighth grade when I first heard that the Baby­lo­ni­ans also had a flood sto­ry, and I have con­tin­u­al­ly noticed new rip-offs (that oth­ers are sure to have noticed, but it’s excit­ing notic­ing them on my own), with the Caduceus being the latest.

I recent­ly pur­chased a used copy of The Leg­end of Zel­da: Col­lec­tor’s Edi­tion, a com­par­a­tive­ly rare Game­Cube com­pi­la­tion disk con­tain­ing the NES games The Leg­end of Zel­da and The Leg­end of Zel­da: Adven­ture of Link and the N64 games The Leg­end of Zel­da: Oca­ri­na of Time and The Leg­end of Zel­da: Majo­ra’s Mask. Hav­ing not owned or played any of these games for sev­er­al years, I must point out they are just as fun as they have ever been. I still dream of a Leg­end of Zel­da movie some­day being made. That would be whol­ly fantasmagorical!

    What…is a Zel­da T.V. show not enough? :-P (you can buy it at Best Buy)

    Actu­al­ly, I agree. A Zel­da movie would rock.

    Turns out that Snopes has the sto­ry on Kel — alive and well! Good stuff. :)

    *laughs* I was sure it was­n’t true. :) I’m glad it is, Kel was one of my favorites grow­ing up!
