12:09pm: So, some friends* were talking about installing a kitchen trebuchet...
...but then one comment thread digressed to installing stripper poles, and what a steampunk one might look like.

As it happens, the same day I read that post, I also read http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2007/09/face-of-the--14.html:

So this image is for you: (cut for image size)Collapse )

"Susie Q performs during Miss Pole Dance Australia held at the Enmore Theatre on September 22, 2007 in Sydney, Australia. Mostly known as originating from the strip club industry, pole dancing has evolved into an artform and is used by many professional dancers, choreographers and is also popular as a fitness training exercise.

Not steampunk, but damn impressive nonetheless.

*Not outing you, despite your post being public, 'cause I figure you'll speak up if you want to.
3:08pm: Anyone have any experience with 3gstore.com?
I'm considering getting a Franklin CDU-680 for use on Sprint's EV-DO network. It's a USB interface card and works on Macs.

3gstore.com has them in stock and claims to be really good at supporting Macs.

Anyone have any comments on them?

Thanks in advance!
4:26pm: 中秋节快乐! (Happy Mid-autumn Festival!)
This year, the Christian Science Monitor has an article on the holiday.

(Thanks to dirque for the reminder, and the pretty picture!)
