Of all the people in the Emerging Artist showcase this year, I recognize one name. And that's just "recognize". I don't think I've seen any of them perform before.

tacked on a track by Marian Call
on their last podcast (#089)

at the end of July. She's also working on a self-booked 50 state tour, so be sure to check out when she will be in your area
. MD, DE, NJ, PA is up in the air, but the calendar has her around October 6-10, then NYC 10/11-10/20.
I need to remember to check out Peter Sagal's monologue from the Chicago W00tstock. Part 1

via my friends, two time wasters that have sucked me in:Wikipedia Game
Given a starting topic and a finishing topic, you have to find a path of clicks through Wikipedia that lead from the first topic to the second topic. Speed is how you are ranked.Funny Farm
Start with "On the farm", and connect ideas in a mind map. As you reach the edge of the screen, your mind map expands into other areas. If you start playing and would like to combine maps with what I have, post the URL given after you click the "Save Game" button.

My own dentist, Moorestown Dental Associates joins the ranks of "Companies who have had a security breach and lost my e-mail address to spammers"EDIT
: Wait, no, it's another byproduct of the security breach at iContact.com
Lets see what else is going on...via Kotaku and elsewhere
: You can get Gish, World of Goo, and 3 other interesting games in a "name your own price" sale
. The games are cross platform compatible (Windows/Mac/Linux). In addition to the straight-up giveaway, you get to choose how the money you give is divvied up. You can choose to give all the money to the developers or make some or all of it a donation to the Electronic Frontier Foundation and/or Child's Play charity.
Personally, I say just give the money to the developers and donate directly to Child's Play
, and directly to the EFF
as well but the EFF is offering a nice package of Pioneer membership to the first 30 people who donate $100 total to either charity through the sale..

Who knew that a little piece of plastic could cause such a big problem?
For a little while now, we've had water leaking down from the freezer in to the refrigerator.
A description of the problem from somewhere on the Internets
"The most common cause is a blocked defrost drain. Every 8 hours or so, the refrigerator goes into defrost, and ice is melted from the cooling coils. This water must drop into a very small hole just under the evaporator coil, and from there, falls into a drain cup in the fresh food section. It the goes into a drain hose thru the back wall and down to the condensate pan under the fridge."
So I pulled the fridge away from the wall off, unplugged it, then took off the bolts that held the interior panels out. As I suspected, the floor beneath the false floor was covered in ice, and the metal drip tray in the back was also a sheet of ice.
Through strategic use of a hair dryer, I was able to remove the ice. I found a piece of broken blue plastic lodged in the hole, preventing water from draining out of the freezer. After clearing that out, and sending a bit of boiling water down the drain hole, I eventually heard the sound of running water hitting the evaporation tray beneath the fridge.These are some pictures I found that show in detail almost exactly what I did
. (No, the site isn't mine).
Of course, now the kitchen is in a bit of disarray. I had to take everything out of the freezer and put it under ice in coolers. The coolers are still sitting there on the kitchen floor, airing out. I'll need to make sure that I put them away today. Current Mood: accomplished
