Lots of snow here this morning, but it's that nice warm fluffy childhood sort of snow. Shockingly the satellite never cut out once (yet), so the update is on the main set trouble free. The leaderboards are fully up to date, with frank_prov stealing the lead with Allen's photos.

Anyway, some quick photos and their explanations:

Dumbass. Jason went out with some idiot friend (the kid that I shot in the nuts over and over with the paintball gun because he wanted to “be Jackass”). They've left his car in the driveway. There's thirty feet of clear space in front, but instead they've blocked the driveway during a snowstorm. I hope that we need to go out so I can have an excuse winch that fuckers car into the swamp. Not cool.

Of course, I've let my toys rot in the snow, so I'm probably going to hell too. I was going to put them properly under cover, but the snow hit sooner than expected, and then the driveway was too icy to get things under cover. Or maybe I was just being lazy.

Brushing off the dish. Actually, it totally cut through that layer (this was a preemptive brushing); I was quite impressed. If it wasn't for the latency issues, this dish would be a total dream project. Where's FTL communication when you need it?

The new coupon design. They don't look like crap, like the first set… I wrote some software that manipulates the text layers in PSD files to do it (not hard, you just do a search and replace on the ASCII of the text, with a &H00 inbetween every letter, and then PS re-renders on re-load).

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
