Jay Maynard's Tron Costume
This guy is a first ballot inductee into the "way too much time on his hands" hall of fame.
Overheard on metafiler, "Is there anything worse than male camel-toe?"
It's okay that I'm jealous, right?

Why I'm thankful I'm a Boston sports fan
The Sports Guy's back!
He left the Jimmy Kimmel show to return to giving us three columns a week on ESPN page 2, including this gem:
I insist you read all of his archived columns, I will not argue about this.
Here are five fantastic things that have happened during my tenure as a Boston Sports Fan.
Someone really needs to put this guy in charge of an espn channel.
If you don't believe me, check my favorite article of all time.

I've spent this early evening helping Chhavi Sachdev get her own weblog up and running. Check her out at http://www.chhavisachdev.com/blog/.
So far we've downloaded Wordpress and installed it on her server. We've just finished editing her stylesheet and templates.
At some point I'll fix the links in her flash files to fit her preferred site architecture.
She's got an awesome airport hub in her house so she, I and her roomate (my colleague from MIT Libraries) are all working wirelessly on our laptops.

Games for Infogeeks
Some sneaky librarian type got the idea that they could get average joe web user to help classify images. So they went about turning it into a game. Somehow, they managed to make indexing enjoyable! I've found the game to actually be pretty good practice for my job. Scary, eh?
And just because I know that all this indexing will make you hungry. Here's how you can get your unix on and your grub on. Have a Pizza Party via a command line pizza orderator (via boingboing). No geek should be without it. I guess Dominoes has figured out its market. After a long day of shell scripting you just gotta have some pie.

Why You Should Fall to Your Knees and Worship a Librarian
While constructing the roll I came across this site, so I added it and thought I give it its own post. Enjoy.
Addendum: I've used Wikipedia to provide encyclopedia references for unfamiliar terms in this entry and am going to try to continue this practice in future entries. Wikipedia is cool (you can find out about it at its entry about itself). Especially check out its self-healing systems.
