New Annoyance

After many years of resistance, I've finally caved and got a cell phone. It's a Motorola RAZR V3 (left). Not sure where this thing stacks up against the rest of the pack, but one thing is certain: the V3 runs a pokey Java virtual machine that makes surfing the web at 14.4 kbps over a noisy phone line seem like heaven by comparison.

Note that my now having a cell phone does not change in any way the fact that I abhor these annoying little devices (this goes double when coupled with driving an SUV).

Future Christmas present

For those of you looking for that perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite animal rights activist, vegetarian, etc., here's a great find: Cabela's 2005 Big Game Hunter for the GameCube. Highlights of the game include: "36 big game animals to hunt, including elk, moose, bison and more", "Highly detailed and improved instructions on gameplay, as well as guides to hunt specific animals and to provide the best results with specific gear", "Gameplay aids include bullet cam, trophy beacons and trophy autoclaim", and "Quick Hunt mode lets you get in tracking and hunting fun without worrying about time, health and wilderness survival elements". Also recommended for anyone looking to mitigate the stress induced by PlanetLab SSH "Permission denied" errors and the like.
