The lyrics to “So Long and Thanks For All The Fish”:

So long and thanks for all the fish.
So sad that it should come to this.
We tried to warn you all but, oh dear.

You may not share our intellect,
Which might explain your disrespect
For all the natural wonders that grow around you.

So long, so long, so long and thanks for all the fish.

The world’s about to be destroyed,
There’s no point getting all annoyed.
Lie back and let the planet dissolve.

Despite those nets and tuna (I’m not sure what this word is, sounds like feets)
We thought that most of you were sweet.
Especially tiny tots and pregnant women.

So long (x a lot) and thanks for all the fish.

If I could have one last wish, I would like a tasty fish.
If I could just change one thing, we would all have learned to sing.

(Followed by a strange group operetta or something)

So long (x a lot) and thanks for all the fish.

Analog stick Nintendo DS mod

Using a suction cup, people are starting to get analog stick-style interaction with the DS.

Apparently, it all started on the gamefaqs forums and culminated in this video.

Later in the gamefaqs thread, someone claims that a mouse ball is even better than a suction cup.

Ep3

Kevin Smith reviews Episode 3. Careful – LOTS of spoilers. Short version: He likes it!

FYI, I read the novelization and loved it, except for the end. At the end it was cluttered by connecting the dots between eps1-3 and eps4-6. I’d rather they leave that kind of minutae to our imaginations, but they might handle it better in the movie.

PostSecret? Wow!

I found this on nicfit’s BlogLines list: PostSecret

It is awesome!

Speaking of nicfit, he’ll be happy to know that I modified my atom.xml, index.xml, and index.rdf to include the HTML in the body. Turns out I had a few problems in the corresponding templates. This link showed me the light.
