Note as of 12/19/2013 12:34:56 PM PST: The web site is still having permanent(?) technical problems (errors, user accounts [e-mail if you want an account], search engine (use Google's with key word(s)), automatic feeds (e.g., Reddit likes/up votes [mostly broken on here]), etc. Blame the rodent. ;)

Web site staff members (please remove AQFL to e-mail: Ant(Dude) (front end and 99% poster) and Mousey (administrator)). Use public Disqus for everyone to post and see moderated comments and feedbacks. And yes, Ant's English sucks (want to be the copy editor/proofreader?). Note that some non-AQFL links might have offensive/gross contents, annoying advertisements/ads. (use a blocker!), etc.

TheShadow sent me a funny video clip of a transquilized bear that fell onto a trampoline. You can watch the original news footage in a streaming Flash video format, streaming video on StupidVideos (Windows Media and QuickTime), or MPEG format (1.9 MB). You can also download Craig Kilborn's video commentary (1.9 MB; WMV): #1 or #2 (local copy) which makes the clip funnier.

Even Digital Memories Can Fade

| | | | |

This New York Time's article (thanks N.Y. Times Link Generator for registrationless access) talks about digital data can fade away. The nation's 115 million home computers are brimming over with personal treasures -- millions of photographs, music of every genre, college papers, the great American novel and, of course, mountains of e-mail messages. Yet no one has figured out how to preserve these electronic materials for the next decade, much less for the ages. Like junk e-mail, the problem of digital archiving, which seems straightforward, confounds even the experts.

Amusing World of Warcraft Dance Videos

Shrine mentioned an amusing dance video (8.3 MB; WMV format) from World of Warcraft in a forum thread. The ending scene was a bit too much (no nudity). :P

11/11/2004 1:31 PM PST: DDR: World of Warcraft (9.5 minutes; 28 MB; WMV video format). Not funny as the first one though.
