Cool domain name I thought of last night: samiz.com. The site behind it is pretty cool, and reminds me of Kevin's. The current cover story is sure to be a hit with Jake. (Yes, all this recent content is a transparent attempt to keep Jake using the web.)

Speaking of Kevin, a missive from him involving something he heard on NPR:
"The upcoming Star Wars film has the awful inevitability of a soviet

A sudden panic seized me. What if all the warning labels on innocuous products like mops and bathrugs, all the "use at your own risk" notices on paper cutters and THIS SOFTWARE COMES WITH ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY announcements on roguelike games, what if all of this phony riskmongering has desensitized me to actual risk, so that I shrug off impending doom even when it is clearly labeled as such, and go to a horrible fate because of the lack of a THIS STUFF IS ACTUALLY DANGEROUS AND WE'RE NOT JUST SAYING THAT BECAUSE WE'RE AFRAID YOU'LL SUE US BECAUSE YOU INJURED YOUR FINGER sticker?

Boilerplate from the Mozilla release notes:
This source code is subject to the U.S. Export Administration Regulations and other U.S. law, and may not be exported or
re-exported to certain countries (currently Afghanistan (Taliban controlled areas)...

The reviews of AYAO are in (some of them, anyway)! Kevin offers up a humorous review here (note his mondegreen; I still need to tell the story of the other mondegreen!), and Adam reminisces about old times on a very special episode of Mail You Can Bruise.

I just realized that you could never make any kind of behind-the-scenes documentary for Planet of the Apes, because any such documentary would have a title (Behind the Planet of the Apes, The Making of the Planet of the Apes, etc.) that would force it to be a de facto full-fledged member of the Planet of the Apes family.

Oh, wow. UCLA computer scientist Judea Pearl is the father of
Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter who was murdered
in Pakistan. This stunned me, more than I was stunned the day they
announced he'd been killed. The connection is more personal now.
(I discovered this via Instapundit).
