2004/10/15 09:26:00 - Mars Defends!
The answer to my quiz yesterday is 62.5g (and I here provide photographic proof for the disbelieving).

</a></b></a>mpinna, </a></b></a>ghoti, </a></b></a>mouse262, </a></b></a>andrewwyldgonzo, </a></b></a>vyvyan, and wishful_thinks all got it right, and win the amazing prize of getting mentioned in my livejournal.

Does anyone know why that size? ('cos I sure don't).

Oh, and a note for Americans, Continentals and other Aliens; 42.5g is 1½oz, 56.7g is 2oz and 70.9g is 2½oz. The Google Calculator can do these conversions for you, like this.

</a></b></a>marnanel recently fêted a Firefox extension called Wikalong; and it's really quite cute. Unfortunately it's one of those network effect thingumies, and so it'd be more cute the more people were using it, but...

Also, unfortunately, it only appears to work in Firefox.

2004/10/15 12:56:00 - The consequences of exercising "Free Speech"
This week, Doonesbury has been running a sequence of strips called the "Honest Voices Reading List", which include links to sites that (presumably) might convince people to vote for Kerry.

This morning the link was for an editorial of the Lone Star Iconoclast; about how they weren't endorsing Bush this time around.

The subsequent editorial about the response to that editorial is a bit scary...

Hmm, today the "Mars" location in the chocolate machine is now filled up with ToffeeCrisps. I hope this isn't a plot by Mars to deny me their chocolate...

2004/10/15 23:33:00 - Choice.
Today I had a difficult choice to make.

In Borders, with £20 of book token.

On one hand Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, on the other The Algebraist.

Both books were reduced to £14.99. On the other hand, JS&MN is twice as fat (it's a brick!) and Iain Banks has never bought me a drink, so it wasn't that hard to choose really.
