What is that?
It's a duck pond.
Why aren't there any ducks?
I don't know. There's never any ducks.
Then how do you know it's a duck pond?

Whee!

I did some more tweaking on my ADSL modem, and I'm now getting 18808kbps downstream and 1023kbps upstream.

But that's not the good part. The good part is I'm downloading anime* on Bittorrent** right now at 1.2Mbytes per second.

...

Was downloading anime. It finished while I was typing this post. Zzzzzip!

* The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.
** Actually Azureus.

Update: Dropped out, and reconnected at 18999. A new Pixy speed record!

Anyone know where I can get a bunch of mini-ITX boards with two ethernet ports and two firewire ports?

Also, OC-3 PCI cards.

Also, cheap network-controlled power switches. Or PCI system management cards that work in standard motherboards. (HP have a nice one, but it seems to work in their servers only.)

Also, an ATX desktop case with at least 4 3.5" drive bays that's no more than six inches high. (Okay, that one was easy.)

Oh, and a micro-ATX motherboard with dual gigabit lan, four PCI slots, SATA, and compact flash. (No problem.)

Yes, I'm doing something weird.

Set Phasers To Checkmate

Via Chizumatic, Deflexion, a geekier chess.

But mirrors only? Where's the fun in that? Where are the prisms? Where are the beam splitters? Where are the optical phase conjugators?
