I'm now the proud owner of a wireless card for my laptop.
may have arrived two days ago at her destination, but her journey lives on. She sent me postcards! The ones from days 1 and 2 of her trip arrived today.
There must be many distraught students on the University of Toronto campus tonight. Thanks to a broken water main, Grad House will have no running water for 12-24 hours.
Speaking of campus, I happened to intercept large numbers of tractors protesting inadequate government agricultural subsidies at Queen's Park today. The bright colors of the tractors were lovely against the foot and a half of snow smoothing the park landscape, inamongst the bare trees. I didn't have a camera with me, but you can seepictures of it thanks to piratehead and larkvi.
I'd heard about Chowhound for a long time but never really took a look around the site until a day or two ago. I deeply admire making sites accessible to text browsers... but... how on earth does anyone sanely use that site on a daily basis? Even with the HotPosts feature, I found it annoying to use. Still, it's a treasure trove of information on food.
