Today is the one year anniversary of my arrival in California. Doh!

Koko skips chat to surf for porn. "Pretty love pretty pet. Love you, pretty, Koko love" quipped the sensitive 280 pound debutante.

Koko's favorite toy: Mister Rogers

April Fools Day

Hottest thing since the Commodore PET.

Netscape releases their source code. A few month's ago, that would have been an April Fools joke.

Interestingly, Netscape uses a very COM-like methodology for modularity. They're talking, maybe people will listen. From their FAQ:

Why are we mimicking COM? Doesn't COM suck?
You're probably basing this opinion on your experiences with or stories you've heard about OLE. A really important thing to remember is that COM is not OLE. OLE was built one top of COM, but it's not a shining example of COM. COM is simply a mechanism for laying out and using interfaces, the important components we've pretty much described here. [...]

Why not COM on Windows? Because it's not a cross platform solution, and that's what we need. We're going to make every effort to make our interfaces compatible with COM on platforms that support it, so it may not matter. But no promises, yet.

April Fools Day
As always, start in the obvious place.

An unknown past

Perhaps "Poisson D'Avril?"

Some of the best practical jokes are hacks at MIT.
