Some interesting news items, two of which involve rodents. (This time, I didn't even insert fakes.)

"Used Tubing Company Web Site Inadvertently DDOSd. Owners of utube.com (leading "used tubing and piping" supplier) were knocked offline after recent news stories about YouTube led to a tidal wave of misdirected surfers pulling up utube instead."

The Internet is losing its tubes!

But the Internet IS tubes... If it loses its tubes, it'll be gone! What a metaphysical quandary.

It's all text messaging's fault! It's turning the next generation (and a not insignificant percentage of previous ones) n2 gdm illtrts, u no?

I need to create a txtmsgese reply template for people who send me request mails in said dialect. It's almost as bad as 1337!

*blink* </rant>

And CNN as usual has moved the new Cyprian mouse article somewhere else, would be cool to see a picture of the cutie. Anyone grab a snap of it?

I love the cream puff gown.

You can eat the bride out of it, and then eat out the bride.

D'oh, did I just say that?

Well, considering that the cream puffs are up to two months old...

Of course, now I'm pondering a dragon suit made up entirely from choux pastry scales, appropriately glazed for gloss and hue.
