It started raining yesterday just as we pulled into the main entrance of the zoo, of course. Still, it was fun wandering around and checking out the various exhibits. The Komodo Dragons were a bit of a let-down after the media hype and long line-up of people waiting to get into the exhibit (they could have been stuffed mutant alligators with severe eczema for all I could tell). My favourite (and Allison's) exhibit was the one with the Pygmy Marmosets...soooo cute! The Sloth Bus was also amusing.
I am currently looking for a good/detailed logging web stats program: if anyone knows of one, please let me know.
Site of the day is David Goulden's Java animation at the entrance point. David was UT's main sound engineer for Myths and Urban Legends and has the patient of a saint.
[ 3:42:21 PM ] Eek! That should be "patience", not "patient". Thanks for pointing that out, Lissa. To Jason: California rolls, yum! To Scott: hey, a Blatherings award! Great idea. I'll have to make it small yet obnoxiously, lemme think on this. To David: like your stream of consciousness blatherings. :-) To all those who have no idea what I'm talking about, check out the current blatherchat. By the way, I'm in ecstasy! Recently discovered software that handles bounced messages from mailing lists (like Inklings)! Woohoo! Thanks to Geoff Duncan (the tech guy at Tidbits) for the tip. I am very happy right now. Happier, of course, once I've got it all properly installed and working.
