I'm trying out WordPress, so the blog is moving to:

See you there!

I have a new plot!

Bit of a building site at the moment - I had to untangle various unhelpfully-named coalesced objects so there's a bit of duct tape and bailing twine going on right now.

Also, I've discovered the joy of WordPress so I might be moving my blog to that soon.

I woke up this morning to an inbox full of "your items were returned from..."

Turns out my landlord sold all his sims without telling anyone. Or at least, not telling me or my neighbours.

So I'm temporarily shopless and homeless while I decide what to do. Poop.

Robots restore faith in humanity

Tweenbots - an experiment in human-computer interaction - are little cardboard robots left out in public somewhere with a flag on their back that says where they're trying to get to. They roll forward at a constant pace, but only change direction if someone is kind enough to pick them up and point them the right way.
The unexpected result is that people really do go out of their way to help these anthropomophised little dudes. One man even pointed the robot back up the way he had just come, saying, "You can’t go that way, it’s toward the road.”

Keep sailing, guys

I've been dressed as a pirate in SL for a few weeks now, but today it's a mark of support for The Pirate Bay, who have been convicted of something tenuously related to copyright infringement.

"Even if I had the money I would rather burn everything I owned, and I wouldn't even give them the ashes."
- Peter Sunde

I defy anyone to tell me, with a straight face, that this is anything other than the result of the Swedish legal system being bullied by foreign money.

Evil Plan (tm)!

Your objective is simple: World Domination.
Your motive is a little bit more complex: To show them all

Stage One
To begin your plan, you must first seduce a military general. This will cause the world to sit up and take notice, terrified by your arrival. Who is this unholy menace? Where did they come from? And why do they look so good in classic black?

Stage Two
Next, you must desecrate the pyramids of giza. This will all be done from a island of mu, a mysterious place of unrivaled dark glory. Upon seeing this, the world will gibber like madmen, as countless hordes of mad scientists hasten to do your every bidding.

Stage Three
Finally, you must demonstrate your unholy weapon, bringing about an end to sanity. Your name shall become synonymous with all that is wrong with the world, and no man will ever again dare interrupt your sentences. Everyone will bow before your unbreakable will, and the world will have no choice but to fall madly in love with you.

Get your own evil plan here.
