So proud of my 4 yr. old son. Watching a video on YT last night, we saw a battery-powered Thomas train going waaaaay faster than it should. I said, "oh, they plugged in a 9-volt battery to it, that's six times the power it's meant to draw." He said "Daddy I want to do that!" I said, "Asher, it'll probably burn out the motor in your Thomas." He said "OK!" So tonight we went to Radio Shack together and got the parts. I didn't go straight for 9 volts; 3 volts makes it plenty fast but we can plug in the bigger battery later.

Apparently I'm going to be live on the BBC this Tuesday at 2:30PM Eastern time. I think this may be the way to listen:

OK, so you're hip to the newish web typography and using @font-face to send real fonts to your web browser. How do you know it's working? Here's a pretty inconclusive thread on the same question. Any better ideas?
I am busy for a sunday afternoon, aren't I? When I look at a webpage, if I want to know what font is being used on the screen, is there a way to find out? Is the info held in

Well, one way would be just by looking: if it looks different from the usual fare, it must be font-face. Check out the "CSS Typographic Control" button on the top left corner of this site: http://www.underconsideration.com/quipsologies/ Also, take a look at much more extensive controls in the right-side bar here: http://explorationsintypography.com/ , including being able to pick your own font.

My four year-old says I should get some Rogaine foam and grow my hair back. Opinions?

I think Rogaine EXTREME is now available with a trowel-on applicator.

We had a great experience at Autoland, purchasing a 2012 Prius C. The salesperson was new and it's a complicated car, with all the options, and she explained them well and/or sought help when she wasn't sure. We're really pleased with how easy it all was and how comfortable. Plus they kept our 5 year old occupied with cartoons and popcorn.

Deerkill is a fantastic place. The counselors and administrators are all extremely qualified and highly experienced. Their customer service even for the tiniest issues is absolutely first-rate. My son can't wait to go back on Mondays, and comes home everyday totally exhausted and happy.
