put up a survey to track what trade shows
Linux Coders think are a good idea to go to. With the proliferation of cons, its nice to know what ones matter.
Oh, and if you're looking for beer, you should try
's BarTrek. its a PDA proggie with maps to bars and reviews of beer. And if you have GPS, it'll even lead you to it.
My guess is after a few beers, it better be a really user friendly app or you might wind up in a desert or something.
k-rist sent us linkage to Pulp Simpsons!
which I highly recommend.
An anonymous reader pointed us to a 15 pound Millenium Falcon
made of legos.

money can buy.

the site worth it. notjenni
a parody of jennicam
An AC pointed us to a Swedish site
has a photo of the Daytrading Yucca plant.
This plant is wired up to a computer to trade on the Swedish stock market in response to its electrical activity. If it makes a profit it is rewarded with water and light, if it makes a loss it is unwatered and sits in the dark. The plant has made an 18 percent profit in the last three months! God I hope this is true ;)
pointed us to a pretty good parody of the Matrix
pointed us to MonkeyBagel

Finally, what would quickies be without some porn?
