Windows Vista SideShow

The Vista “SideShow Platform”:

The Windows Vista SideShow platform will also enable hardware manufacturers to build auxiliary displays in a wide range of peripheral devices such as keyboards, LCD display casings, remote controls, and cell phones. These devices can then display information received from a Windows Vista-based PC, providing even more convenience to your everyday computing.

Probably the only thing they didn’t copy from Apple. I like it, because it makes a lot of sense. Combine this with E-Ink displays, and Optimus keyboards, and we’ve got a winner.

captcha for 4.7

Just put up the form-API based captcha.module for Drupal. Go get it! (of course, i’m assuming you’re running Drupal 4.7 / Drupal HEAD; because otherwise this is of no use to you.)

Discovered Mitch Hedberg via Anuj’s band website :

“An escalator can never break; it can only become stairs. You would never see an ‘Escalator Temporarily Out Of Order’ sign, just ‘Escalator Temporarily Stairs. Sorry for the convenience.’”
