This just in from the cuckoo-pants <canvas> implementations desk.  Recommended for use with Chrome or Safari, be sure to Show Options and play with them all…

Yet another great feature for (some) Google users (in some paces): multiple sign-in.

And finally, I’ve often joked that I am waiting for “thought-recognition” software. Well, thanks to Tan Le, apparently it’s here…
