Crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside.

Today's strip that is.

I've returned from London and Oxford none worse the wear. Enjoyed some of the touristy sites and was delighted with the Royal Shakespeare Company's performance of "The Comedy of Errors" which was absolutely hysterical. Check the sidebar, I've got a link to the full text, but you really have to see it performed! Highly recommended, if you have the means.

The forums are hopping, and I've been getting a couple more emails. All is good and well, but we are greedy and want more! Click on one (or both) of those links, and tell us you love us. We love you; didn't the chocolates and flowers prove it?

Well, let me send some interesting tidbits your way. Firstly, check out this idea of "unwiring" a town for Internet access (not what you think). It sounds awesome! I'm a huge proponent of wireless Ethernet; my laptop is equipped with one of Apple's AirPort cards, and since there is a wireless network on my campus, I'm madly in love. There should be wireless Ethernet throughout the U.S. Free Internet access for all!

Next up, FilmForce has an in-depth report of the wrestling match scene in Spider-Man, complete with pictures. Sounds like the extras had a good time; if I weren't 8 hours and several thousand miles away, I'd have been there with bells on. Yes, real bells. Like a cow.

Also, to bring up something that I find personally interesting: everybody in the U.K. has a cellphone. You thought America was bad; it's worse here. I rode the train twice this weekend, and I honestly (and I exaggerate not) did not see anybody between the ages of 18 and 50 who did NOT have a cellphone. This completely blows me away. Of course, it also means I'm tempted to get one; but mainly because I want a new toy. For now, I shall resist!

Forsooth, we shall meet again!
