I don’t normally think of myself as a reblogger of lists, but I am genuinely impressed by a few of these.

There are so many ant colonies surrounding our house, that at least one has resorted to sending scouting missions into our kitchen on a daily basis. We need to draw the line somewhere. We need #16 from this list: kill ’em with cornmeal. Who knew?
Wow, I’m not sure I’d ever have a need for something like this, but it’s really nice to know it’s there if needed.
RedPhone, our Android application for making secure voice calls, is now available as Free and Open Source Software! As with TextSecure, we hope that making RedPhone OSS will enable access to secure communication for even more people around the world, with an even larger number of developers contributing to make it a great product.
Encrypted voice calls, now open source.
When I was young, I thought what a useful tool a fan was. I can point a fan at myself, and it cools me.
One night, I had a bowl of ice cream. Having to leave the bowl for a few minutes on a hot night, a brilliant idea occurred to me: I can point my fan at the ice cream, and it won’t have melted much by the time I get back. Continue reading “Fans Are Cool”

I can’t believe I just put these in a

I’ve decided that nothing is quite as peaceful as a house with a sleeping baby.
Something reminded me today of my disdain for Green Mountain coffee.
You see, a while back I tried a Sumatran blend of coffee, I think from Rosemont Market down the road, and fell in love. But since we’ve gotten a Keurig, I wanted to order some k-cups online.

Kind of cool design concept for a new type of bulb. If only they can get decent color out of it, I bet it will be a hit.
I really like reading XKCD, and now Randall’s added a new site called What-if where he thinks about some of the offhand things people email him about and selects one or two to explore.
Or, nevermind the fact that I’m the only one who posts here.
Here’s a collection of funny text I keep around for posterity.
