How long will your password stand up? This site shows the approximate amount of time required for a computer or a cluster of computers to guess various passwords.

I remember when I was a wee-kiddo I used to spin my Led Zeppelin records backwards and try to hear the hidden satanic messages. Now, thanks to the Internet and technology I can’t even begin to understand, all we have to do is press buttons! Oh! And Britney Spears has backwards messages too!

RoboDump is a robot. And it poops. Forever. A horrible, never-ending bowel movement complete with straining grunts, horrific gas, splashes, and pee sounds.

Can you tell the hard-core programmers from the hard-core murderers? I sure can’t, and will probably wind up dead by morning.

Caring for Your Introvert
categories: Geeky

Do you know an introvert? Perhaps you are curious as to how you should be caring for him/her beyond making sure their litterbox is clean, their water is fresh and that they have plenty of kibble.
Now I’m off to sleep with models since I am most certainly not an introvert… *soft crying*

Behold, the ravages of age!
categories: Geeky, Pics

A family in Argentina have been taking pictures of themselves on June 17th every year since 1976, creating a fascinating look at the aging process. They were lucky, because unlike my family they completely missed out on the giant-clown-glasses phase of the 80s.
