"Sensible", he says.

Gazelle

Gazelle is a rewrite of an aborted project, jsel, which aims to be a sensible Lisp for Javascript. By "sensible" I mean it adheres to the following ideas: [...]

Unsensibly, Gazelle is written in Emacs Lisp. I'll port it to Common Lisp eventually.

What Kind of Dinosaur Meat Would Taste Best?

Bookmarking this in my time machine:

"You could get into cuts of meat. Armored dinosaurs mainly used their tails for defense, so that would probably be a lot of good white meat. Hadrosaurs were quadrupedal and spent much of their time on the move; I suspect they would be largely red meat," Varricchio says. Sauropods, the largest animals to ever walk the earth, may have made for an interesting meal as well. Their long necks, used to reach high-up food sources, could have resulted in a unique cut of sturdy red meat weighing several tons. Says Varricchio, "Sauropod neck could be a delicacy."

Gee, thanks Twitter.

You no longer get to drink from the firehose. Morons have no longer invaded your screen saver.

Some time recently Twitter turned off the feeds of public twits. Turned them off entirely instead of just rate-limiting them or something. There's a new API to provide a "small random sample of public twits" but it requires authorization via an API key.

Jerks.

Suggestions for a public replacement URL to make be the default text-source in future releases of xscreensaver?
