Thursday Links

Only five more days until the season premiere of House! I can hardly contain myself.

And if you're into medical dramas, that day may come when you need to refer to Gray's Anatomy, because well, maybe you want to know what a xiphoid process is. Or something.

Gray's Anatomy and many more titles are available at, a great place to find free literature, reference, and verse.

The Cloud Appreciation Society has some pretty neat pictures of clouds in their photo gallery.

The Art. Lebedev Studio is a neat industrial design company in Russia. They sell some of their designs, as well as some posters and a book or two. Check out the Optimus keyboard, which may go on sale later this year. Too bad you'll have to be a millionaire to afford one -- the Optimus Mini Three has only three keys and costs $160.

DEFCON looks neat. Remember WarGames? The only winning move is not to play.


Morning Links

The European Space Agency will be crashing a probe into the surface of the moon on Saturday (Sep. 2) morning, about 9:41 am AK time. The crash is the finale to a (successful) mission to survey the moon. I guess littering the surface of the moon is better than leaving the trash from the mission in orbit.

Check out these facts about Chuck Norris. Quite a guy.

What exactly is a booger?

Are you a fan of Katamari Damacy? Did you ever wonder what the game would have been like if it had come out in the 80s? No? Well, find out anyway.

Wednesday's Links

Okay, it's kind of late here, but I wanted to post a few links before bed -- I'm going to try and update at least once daily, so we'll see how that works out.

Torrentspy -- this is the best site out there for all your illicit download needs. Plus, they have a partnership with Shoutwire, which is a much more advanced link aggregator than I am.

Bitcomet -- this is the bittorrent client that I use and recommend. If you don't know what bittorrent is, try the bittorrent home.

Movie Mistakes -- this site has a huge user-created database of all sorts of mistakes in movies, from continuity errors to visible film crews.

And finally, here you will find dozens of pictures of some very bizarre statues/sculptures from around the world. Be warned, the last 30 may not be safe for work.

My Bookmarks


Here are a few pages that I visit frequently.

Penny Arcade -- an online comic that is probably only funny if you're into video games. Otherwise, you probably won't get it.

Recent Earthquakes in Alaska -- run by the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, this site offers (nearly) real-time information on seismic disturbances across the state. You can also find links to similar sites for other seismic regions, and other geology sites as well. -- great photo site for aviation buffs. Gazillions of pictures of all sorts of aircraft, from all angles. -- very similar to -- oodles of aircraft photos.
-- ever want to hear the conversations between pilots and air traffic controllers? Now you can. Many US facilites (and a few international) are available for your listening pleasure.

All Music Guide -- huge database of musicians, albums, song, and groups. If you have a favorite band that you want to know more about, or find similar groups, just punch their name into the search bar. I could spend hours surfing here.



A Page Is Born

Greetings from the Crabster, and welcome to my page! This blog will contain links that I find interesting, and the reasons why you should find them interesting, too. I may or may not also include postings about myself, because hey, we all have egos.

I'll start things off by including this link to the front page of Wikipedia. Many of you will already be familiar with that site, but for those who aren't, consider yourself welcome. It is a free encyclopedia that is made up entirely of user submissions. It is generally a good source of information, but due to the fact that anybody can edit just about any article, you have to be wary of some of the pages you find there, especially those that deal with current events and controversial topics.

Crabster out.
