Boss Coffee

Time for Plan B

Well, the HALO thing fell through...so I think I'm going to be somewhat domestic here and get some things done. Like Garbage Day, and laundry. Then I'll think about other things like socializing or fiddling with Civilization or watching anime.

Today's Link of Oddness from the Traveller mailing list: The Museum of RetroTechnology, which is chock-full of the kind of technological dead-ends that seem to end up in steampunk anime. Like the Auxetophone, for example. The whole thing reminds me of Bruce Sterling's Dead Media Project.

The meme of Onsen Mark.

1. Name: Kevin Trainor Jr.
2. Date of birth: October 9, 1959. Yeah, I'm fscking ancient. Deal.
