Google Search Reveals Credit-Card Numbers

This is disturbing, but it's a reminder to be careful about where you use your credit card online. As the story pointed out though, 1) the search engine isn't at fault -- it only found the information -- and, 2) larger, reputable retailers like e-bay, Amazon, Best Buy and Sears did not appear in the lists found, it was smaller "mom-and-pop" shops and smaller businesses.

Watershed books

"Everyone has a favourite book, but what was the novel that changed you or saw you through a crisis?" Interesting question. I'll have to think about that one a few days, and get back to you. Until then, read the article and think about your own - it'd be cool if you'd share yours by posting a comment.

Mmmmmm, nakey Darcy...D'oh!

Look at what Colin Firth said in this interview: "I still find it amusing that what the public doesn't know is that the original screenplay for Pride And Prejudice called for Mr Darcy to jump into the pond nude." (If you follow the link, the quote is at the end of the article, on the second page)

I think we need a director's cut of Pride & Prejudice! But then they probably didn't even film that bit...

Rembrandt's possible disability an advantage?

This is interesting. I really like the idea that a disability may not always be a disability. I never would have considered that a lack of depth perception could actually help an artist.

First Post

Hello! I haven't been happy with the way my other blog host works -- just not too smooth when it comes to using it -- so I thought I'd give Blogger a try. If this works more smoothly, I'll certainly post more!
