TT: Nerdcore

New on it’s the rivalry of Persian Computer Science Gangsta Rappers. Nerdcore will never be the same. I say MC Plus+ should really bust a cap (apparently three is no clear consensus on the origin of this slang expression) in Monzy’s ass, at the very least for not using named A-tags or any other kind of advanced technology that would allow to link to individual articles. Yo.

(In related news, my Russian-speaking readers might enjoy this awesome birthday greeting)


Another good photo over at The number on the train is the unit number that uniquely identifies the car. This train is an R46, since they have unit numbers in the 5482-6207 range.Using you can even tell if the train you were riding in was involved in a major accident. I mean to write a little palm OS app that will take a unit number and give you some info about the train, but I’ll probably never get around to that.


Public service announcement. Have you backed up all your digital photos? By the way, Picasa 2 has an awesome backup tool.

Monzy is Baaaaaaack!

The one, the only, the magnificent Dan Maynes-Aminzade started posting again. It looks like he does not believe in (or simply does not have time to set up) those newfangled xml feeds or html anchors, but he’s back and posting again. Scroll down to Monday, March 28, 2005 entry on and be dazzled with his frat party science and engineering skills. Ice luge technology is not as simple as it seems.

Coming soon to : “Deadprogrammer Visits Japan Part III : Day of the Tentacle”; “Dumpster Diving at the Flatiron”; “Ancient pre-Joel on Software Text Found at the Strand”; “Deadwood Train” and much, much more. Do not miss!
