February 8th, 2011: I've been having a lot of fun with BoxCar2D and there's a new version out today! Basically you can set some initial conditions (and choose your track type), and your computer uses a genetic algorithm (before your eyes!) to evolve a car ideally suited to that track, all within your browser. It's amazing to see it start out with such sucky cars, and then come back in a few minutes and see the new cars that are there. Leave it running overnight for ultracars! In this new version you can design your own car, but I prefer to let my computer surprise me with its inventions, watching them as they run the track. BoxCar2D, cats and kittens!

December 1st-4th: All shipping methods except U.S.P.S. First-Class Package International Service™ are safe. December 5th: International orders made not selecting U.S.P.S. Priority Mail Express International™ shipping will likely arrive in January. December 10th: USPS FIRST CLASS and STANDARD may not make it in time and neither will USPS EXPRESS MAIL INTERNATIONAL. December 14th: ALMOST NOTHING IS SAFE. USPS EXPRESS is the only safe USPS option. For FEDEX HOME/GROUND shipping it depends on where you are: refer to this map!
December 17th: A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE (IF THINGS PLACED ON OR AFTER THIS DATE ARRIVE BY THE 24TH, THAT IS)
