Friday round up

Sorry for the light blogging, work and the house hunting process have been quite draining on me.

Anyway, Here is your recommended reading for today

  • The Economist has a great read Iraqi Kurdistan, or as it will soon be known, Kurdistan.
  • The absolute minimum you should know about Character sets and Unicode
  • Russia Tests “Dad of All Bombs“. It’s good they’re keeping themselves busy. Money Quote: ” Unlike a nuclear weapon, the bomb doesn’t hurt the environment”
  • Megan McArdle on why we haven’t been attacked since 9/11. Personally I think it’s a lack of talent/money/motivation on their part, plus a host of supporting factors
  • The view from the top of the world
  • I’m surprised this hasn’t come back to life among the many Bush conspiracies.
  • There’s this from Craigs List

    Sushi Model: Willing to act as display showcase as sushi is displayed placed on body for patrons to eat off of.
    • Model preferable of Asian ethnicity
    • Height requirement: 5’6” to 5’11”
    • Slim built; clean and body shaven
    • Will wear bottom with pasty/string bikini top or topless
    • Compensation: $200/3 hours

  • Don’t you just love it when support for Microsoft Products is done using commands only they know? Check this out (which did work for me)
