19 years later, innocence comes home - what if he had been executed via a death penalty?

I recently bought my wife the LG VX6000 camera phone from Verizon. When I first played the bowling game, it was like !!WOW!!-- reminded me of the eye-opening thrill I got when I first saw the high quality video game arcades from Japan in the late 1970s.

The US has been behind the rest of the world in cell phone software quality and quantity forever. But I believe the cell phone hardware is finally of the quality that will allow some *serious* gaming, which should finally push the US ahead of other countries in cell phone software quality and quantity deployment. (We are the entertainment capital of the world, after all. :-)

One of the hottest new platforms is the
Nokia N-Gage. Cool!

safemailto shows how to put your email address on a webpage but to keep spam spiders away. Later I'll put tools there to make it easy to add your own safemailto links, complete with automatically generated images.

Google News Alerts is wicked cool. For example, I can now get any news about my friend "Paul Farmer" as soon as it appears. (see also)

I just setup a cgi to allow you to signup to get spam from each time I post something new to my blog here.

If you are getting an email as a result of this posting, it means you were one of the chosen few guinea pigs that I went ahead and signed up already. (So sue me already.)
Check out the lithium powered logo at the bottom right of this screen; I thought it was a joke, but it looks like there is a computer company called lithium.

Well, maybe I'll make a "Prozac Inside" or "Powered by Prozac" button for my website. ;)

Yahoo! Notepad rocks; I know that Yahoo is old news and not as sexy a company as Google (for example), but Yahoo is so awesome. You can rely on the fact that it will likely be around, and its free web-based services can be accessible from any PC you use. My key use for Notepad has simply been to keep a flat text listing of "to do" items. Have you ever noticed that "to do" task list applications are way over-engineered? Especially if web-based, as you don't want to wait for a server round trip at each task modification.
ultimate pda phones is a QuickBase I setup to track the absolutely best possible pda phones available.
SelectSmart President is cool. It would be interesting if it asked you how much you cared about electability. And if it also asked you some questions to see how much you know about things, then charting which candidates are selected by more knowledgable voters. (Note: be sure to use the Google Toolbar popup blocker if you are going to use sites like SelectSmart.)

It would also be interesting and realistic if a tool like this asked questions about character: integrity, honesty, direct/clear, confidence, charisma.

Joel's Bionic Office is cool. Joel is a popular software writer; I love some of his stuff, like most, and hate a few of his articles... :)

Programming Language Inventor or Serial Killer? is just a little bit scary. Some introverts turn to computers, others to guns. This link is from Smitty.

Ben Hyde writes about Stuff Addiction. See also my notes on happiness.
Magic Shadow is cool
I'm using Blogger again, since Google has put the cool "Blog This" button on their toolbar.

This site will be used for me to make quick comments about interesting things I see on the web.

Not to be confused with my main site which is organized by topic (not date) and is my comments on things including the real world (not just the web).
