  • I saw this sign at Ikea last night. You have 90 days (45 días) to return unopened merchandise. I assume that they just forgot to update the Spanish translation to 90 days when they updated the English.

  • Made in the USA… sorta…

    While I’m being pedantic, this was on the back of a package for fuzzy dice that a cow orker received: If you can’t read my picture, I don’t blame you. It says “Sterling, AN AMERICAN COMPANY” and “Package and Product Designed in the U.S.A. MADE IN CHINA.” Although not in the picture, below the recycle […]

  • Friendster Photos

    This guide to Friendster photos could easily apply to LiveJournal as well. Is that enough text to keep me from needing a sideblog? (via NTK)

  • IRV in Ferndale

  • Frank Black on iTunes

    When I sold my iTunes song, one of the criticisms I received was that people who didn’t want to get stuck with Apple’s DRM and licensing agreements could just purchase their music in CD form.

  • Farming in Detroit?

    Apparently people are using land in Detroit to farm and grow food (via Fark). I think this is a great use of land in the city, and since there are cattle drives anyway, why not go for it? Detroit is the only city in America that has had it’s population drop from > 1 million […]

You just need to know the magic words, which are at http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/playstation2_sony_repair.txt (via Dave) GameFAQs doesn’t like people linking to their content (which is why they put it […]

  • MT Security Hole

    If you’re running Moveable Type please read up on how spammers are abusing mt-send-entry.cgi. The easiest way to fix this is to change the permissions to 000, which will disable the script.
