Easter vacation has begun! Yay! It's my first day off with no deadlines around the corner that I've had in a while, so it's time to offload the backlog of stupid sites I've been bookmarking. I'm not sure *why*, exactly, since nobody actually reads this site on a regular basis, but it's good to have new stuff online.

  • Modern Humorist's 2002 Movie Preview is hilarious
  • Windows XP's driver protection list contains a list of all the hardware drivers that XP will not run for various reasons. This annoyingly includes my CD-R drivers.
  • Some snippets of random personal philosophy from somebody who probably takes themselves too seriously.
  • A very useful selection of tools for working with VCDs (aka MPEG movies), including repair tools.
    File Sharing Shenanigans
  • Is your copy of Morpheus broken? That's because KaZaA locked them out of their network. However, KaZaA still works fine. If it's all not very legal anyway, do you care if they use unfair tactics to get more customers?
  • I can't say I tried hard, but as a competitor to KaZaA, AudioGalaxy totally sucks. And you can't use it to download episodes of Fraggle Rock and relive your youth. For instance.
  • If you don't like closed networks (such as the above) then the new Morpheus is a Gnutella client, but so is LimeWire, and the latter is much better. BearShare is also a contender, but it killed my machine's resources, as did LimeWire. KaZaA isn't shy about using memory, but it's a bit more polite about things.
  • Funky case mods and bits of randomly altered computer hardware are to be found at BitTech. Stuff to made you go "Hey, these people have way too much time on their hands," of course, but also "Cool".
  • Teach your computer to execute Java class files simply by double-clicking. Useful, if you're me.
