In Memory Of Johnny Ramone

It was two years ago today that Johnny Ramone passed away after a long battle with prostate cancer. I believe that a moment of ROCKING HARD is in order.

FlightAware tracks private and commercial flights across the U.S., and it does so for free. Especially fun to use in conjunction with (yes, I know I've linked to that one before, but it's too great to ignore).

Futurama is one of my favorite shows, and it's coming back with all new episodes, complete with the entire original cast! Flippin' sweet, man. While you wait for 2008 to roll around, check out this Leela computer case, also reference the Bender case.

If you thought those cases were neat, check out these. I dig the PC built into an old Nintendo box. If you want to know more about case modding, has news, tips, and a gallery of case mods. The Best Case Scenario is possibly the best case mod site -- if you ever have any unanswerable modding questions, ask at the forums. Someone will know. See the Doom 3 case. It's incredible (if you have trouble with delayed gratification, skip to the last page to see pics of the completed case).

Are you a fan of useless trivia? I sure am. Here's some for you -- the 100 oldest currently registered dot-com domains! See what companies have been on the Internet the longest.

The Google Zeitgeist is another place to find trivia that is somewhat more useful. It tracks what people are searching for on Google, and thus gives us a representation of what society as a whole is concerned with. Unfortunately, society is more concerned with Suri Cruise than the fifth anniversary of the September 11th attacks. Sad, but I digress. Check out the year-end Zeitgeist, which breaks down the most popular searches of the year into a variety of categories (current events, celebrities, etc.). There are archives of the Zeitgeist going back to 2001.
