Pondering the Imponderable

Well, I took advantage of Best Buy's sale today and bought the Neverwinter Nights expansion, Shadows of Undrentide (SoU). Some of the new prestige classes sound interesting (check out this thread on the SoU forum for details on these classes). The Bigby's family of spells are welcome additions too. It should be fun to see what the community does with the new tilesets.

Fan Filtering

A little while ago I mentioned the large amount of dust that had gotten in my box. I bought a bag of NaturalAire foam (designed for window air conditioners) for a song at Wal-Mart to give a spin. Its rather porous so it shouldn't impede airflow too much, but still filter out a lot of "stuff". As it so happens, in the latest issue of Dan's Data letters he suggests doing the very same thing. I'll see how it goes.

Forklift Driver Klaus

This is at the same time very funny and very disturbing. Yes, it's time for the strange adventures of Staplerfahrer Klaus (aka Forklift Driver Klaus). And they say the Germans have no sense of humor. You can also see some behind-the-scenes shots and view the whole short (Windows Media Player required). It makes me wish my German was better. Thanks Blue's News.

UPDATE Here's a link to a 90M mpeg of the same thing. I highly recommend this higher quality version.

J.t.Qbe comments: Seriously twisted. Not quite up to the level of Sam Peckinpah's "Salad Days", but close. [sniff]

A.T. Hun comments: Or John Wayne's "Buckets of Blood Pouring Out of People's Heads."
