About

Plurib.us is an evolving collaboration by Brian and Peter, begun in 2002.

I can't put my finger on exactly why this is so great.

If ethanol not being worth the hype wasn't bad enough, a study finds Ethanol is 2x worse than gasoline on our atmosphere.  (Of course, you've got to start somewhere.)

Interesting op ed on copyright law, and where it could head.  Not just "it's bad", but "here's how it could be better" - commercial vs cultural use.

I have every confidence that regular Plurib.us readers are already as manly as humanly possible.

OpenID suddenly fell into wide support.  Yesterday, Yahoo! and Flickr; today, Blogger.  (Now what?)

I used to know people who were very into historical (and detailed) board games. 

Having said that, the only thing I can say about this is "HOLY MOTHER OF CATS!"

Playing time with 10 players is listed at 1200 hours.


That's for 2 teams, 5 people per team.  I understand that, in terms of the game, Italian troops require an extra unit of water per turn, because they subsisted largely on pasta. Even I am not this nerdy.

I finally wrote down my experience of using an rss reader for the first time.  As big as the internet is, I can't find a single web page that explains (very well, at all) why someone should use rss (not that mine qualifies).  If anyone knows of others, I'd like to hear about them.  I'll link out to them.

Since my earlier music site idea, I've been furiously building a new music recommendation site (with the help of certain plurib.us readers).  It's about feature-complete, and I now recommend that you all use it.    IMHO, it's fantastically useful.

Friends, I had an idea (rather technical) about listening to music.  This time, I wrote it down.

briansverymiscellaneousblog.blogspot.com/2007/12/lets-l...
True words, about music.  (I'm nearly in love with this blog.  Is it in a league of its own, or am I just oblivious to music blogging in the modern day?)

Quinoa is possibly the most theoretically ideal food.  Perhaps that's why it's the first ingredient in The Ultimate Meal.
