"Whom the fuck are you?!" are words that needn't occur so often now that we have the Web and the capability to put URIs on our t-shirts. Now, I'm not geeky enough to have my homepage URI on a t-shirt yet, but at least I've managed to get the first step done with. Enjoy!

The End of Pepper?
It looks like Maarten Hekkelman, the creator of my-very-favorite-editor Pepper has given up:
Thanks to all who supported me and my software over the last years. I had a great time, esp. in the beginning. However, recent changes in the various OS's and several not so nice experiences with less than honest 'clients' combined with negative feedback on my software have forced me to stop.
It's a sad day. I hope he frees the code, or at least gives away registration numbers. Luckily, it still seems to work with Jaguar. Ugh! mlpe doesn't work. Luckily you can sort of fake it with

But wait, there's more. Our friend Mr. Gallagher has And Now the Sequel: Every-zilla Meets the Lawyers. Is the New York Times printing stuff they got off of weblogs or what?
On Friday, Mr. Linabury refused to change his site. "I'm not going to take the dragon down," he said in an interview. "It doesn't look anything like Godzilla."
But a person within Mozilla, who said he could not be quoted because of confidentiality agreements, said that the organization had already worked out a deal with Toho that allows it to keep using the name. Besides, he said, the Mozilla mascot is not Godzilla â just your garden-variety Tyrannosaurus rex.
See if you're smarter than Toho's lawyers with the Is it GODZILLA? Quizilla.
Perhaps the esteemed
jillzilla left our company for fear of lawsuits. Fear not, fair Jill! There is always the EFF and the Berkman Center.
