Finding the easter eggs

I recently quit a lynx instance. Or, that is, at first I decided to quit, but then remembered something else I needed to do — so when it prompted me with an ‘Are you sure?’–message, I pressed n. To this, lynx happily replied: “Excellent!!!”, complete with three exclamation marks. Cute little thing.

Pure brilliance. Munroe has spoiled us for a long time on xkcd, but this really is marvellous, although I believe it’s been seen before. But it’s just that simple, it’s good.

The Streets Synger Dansk

Det er en gammel nyhed, men eftersom jeg købte “Everything is Borrowed” i går, er min interesse blevet fornyet. Og Mike Skinners danske udtale er yderst imponerende, selvom han ikke synger så meget.

Being horrible at that one thing 

Writing certainly isn’t what Rand is horrible at. Might be the one thing I’m horrible at. (Although I can come up with others, if pressed.)

Transmit used by (former) porn star

The guys at Panic have really hit the big times — in the newest edition of YOYOmag, former Danish porn star Kira Eggers reveals having purchased a Transmit licence.

(I never thought I’d have to do this, but I feel I have to put up some sort of disclaimer: while I don’t technically [nor in any other way, really] work for YOYOmag, it is a magazine published by my employer, Print2People. They didn’t endorse this writing, however.)

An obvious exception would be The Lord of the Rings, which is almost entirely made up of words the author invented.
