Perhaps it's a sad thing, but I find immense joy that I can now use Cone to access mail using the CLI. Mutt was too clunky to configure and pine was too out of date. Cone seems to be the best of both, with full PGP and IMAP support.

Love this. Want to immediately go home and play with my hotplate!
 
Fun with the Leidenfrost Effect : Students at University of Bath in the UK had some watery fun with the Leidenfrost effect. What is it? When a surface is significantly above the boiling point of a liquid and comes in contact with it, it produces an insulating vapor layer which keeps it from boiling rapidly. You can see drops of water skittering on a pan in the kitchen... its a common occurrence.

From Physicsworld: It turns out that if you replace a smooth surface with the sort of asymmetrical teeth found in a ratchet, the drop will move rapidly in one direction. By using ratchet surfaces to accelerate liquid drops, the team has made the drops move uphill and even follow a predetermined path through a maze.
