Weird thing of the day 12 June 2005/5 Siwan 5765 (Day 49 of the `Omer/Magic Day)


Tomorrow is Shavu‘oth, the anniversary of the giving of the Torah, which means practically that we have a two-day gap in the blog. There is a custom to eat dairy products on Shavu‘oth, but oddly enough no one seems to have taken this to the logical conclusion of eating pizza, which is the pinnacle of dairy development and definitely better than blintzes. Go figure.

The Darwine Project has announced that WINE, which allows Windows programs to run under Linux, will work under Mac OS X for Intel machines. Thus it looks like my prediction that my next Mac will be able to run Windows programs is correct. That ought to scare the heebeejeebees out of Microsoft.

Today is Magic Day, and the nearest things I have to magic in my Weird thing of the day source folder are on Rubik’s Magic Cube, more specifically two Cube-related LEGO projects: 1) JP Brown's Serious LEGO - CubeSolver, and Maarten Steurbaut - Rubik's magic Cube. Enjoy, and hagh sameah.
