What are the haps my friends

February 24th, 2011: If you want to donate to help the victims and survivors of the earthquake in New Zealand, the New Zealand Red Cross can help, but their site is struggling now. You can also use Give A Little to donate; they're sending 100% of the funds to the Red Cross there.

In happier news, its rare that I get fan mail for linking to something, but when I linked to BoxCar2D I got emails thanking me for pointing it out! BoxCar2D is a site where your computer evolves a sweet car/motorcycle/8-wheeled conveyance, from scratch, using genetic algorithms. And there's a new version out today, and the cars are now breakable! ENJOY.

YOU LIKE TO READ: Probably, huh? Well GOOD NEWS: my book To Be or Not To Be (choose-your-own-path Hamlet!) is in the new Humble eBooks Bundle! Up to FIFTEEN books at a pay-what-you-want price, plus you support charity (and artists)! Definitely worth checking out, if you ask me.

NEW SHIRTS: As you may have noticed, I've spent the past all this year coming up with a new shirt design every month. Then I sold them for two weeks only! But now they're BACK... for two weeks only. Check them out! There are some PRETTY FRIGGIN' AWESOME shirts here. There's also a new one about dating, kinda?

One year ago today: i am beginning to think the lyrics to pop songs DON'T have all the answers
