                                                             |
 The history  of  the political  cartoon  is  complex.  Mr.  |
 Bolling  has  an excellent point to make: many of  today's  |
 political  cartoons  have been  reduced to  bad punchlines  |
 instead  of  political commentary.   Is that the  way  the  |
 politics they reflect actually work?  Don't answer that.    |

 shaving one's own head, and I might just need one.          |

 A: No, I'm sure your mom looks great.  Send  us a  picture  |
 because we're  starting  a  gallery.  Oh yeah, look for  a  |
 special Mother's Day HeadBlade™ next spring.                |

 Working on adding an editing box  to my daily  notes page,  |
 allowing  remote  editing  from  anywhere.   However,  the  |
 browser  textbox isn't functional  enough.  There are some  |
 Java alternatives...                                        |
                                                             |
 Jext  has  syntax  colorizing,  XML customizable  GUI, and  |
 other acronyms.                                             |
                                                             |
 But  then,  JaVI!   What  would  be  better  than   having  |
 in-browser Java-based vi?  Not very much, let me tell you.  |
                                                             |
 If you are  reading this via  a search hit in the  distant  |
 future (oOooOOOo) and  cannot find Javi anywhere,  contact  |
 me and I shall get you  a copy.  I was also unable to find  |
 a tarball, but I was  lucky  enough to scam  one from this  |
 nice fellow.  The whole thing isn't quite  up to par,  but  |
 it would make a great project in the future.                |
                                                             |
 Also found GeekCheat's new  vi reference  shirt  - need me  |
 one of them.   In  the closeup, you can  tell  the text is  |
 upside-down for actual easy reading!                        |

 This is the log of a faceless entity.  I wander around the  |
 web, and point out what are most likely completely useless  |
 things for  you to  visit.   If you know me  in real life,  |
 then you will probably hate this.  Where I have been, what  |
 I learned there, and  what I  plan  to  figure out in  the  |
 future.  Ahh, the healing power of links.                   |

 Technically this  is a "web log".  You  can find many more  |
 of these in the links section, but if none fit your tastes  |
 you can always follow the monkey and get an easily updated  |
 site with Pitas.                                            |
