Wheee, toys arrived today!



From left to right, knife sharpener, pocket knife, switchblade comb, kubaton with blade, butane pencil torch, and the hilt of my new wooden daito.


Daito, by itself.

Need to find butane for the pencil torch... XP

MacBook Pro on its way back from Apple. I wonder if DHL delivers Saturday. That would make me very happy.

[edit]Small note to self: Was from budk.com, bought because they offered lovely $1 shipping on all orders over $25. Came via express shipping too!

Not as thick as I'd like, but maybe I could be creative and make it larger, using twice the amount of ribbons?

Found the spiffy Origami book as well. Am probably ordering it.

Facebook information could be sniffable: http://www.theregister.com/2007/06/26/sniffing_private_facebook_info/

It only implies that someone could guess and check to see if you have some specific words on your profile. So they would have to know you, and then maybe have something specific they're looking for. Which could or could not be a problem. It's a bit like bruteforcing a password: trying different combinations over and over, but unless bruteforcing the password, a correct guess only tells you that it's correct, and does not grant you access to the account.
