Women in Refrigerators logoThe domain is going away this weekend or soon thereafter (and given its relatively high Google ranking, I’m sure it’ll be snatched up by a cyber-squatter of some sort soon thereafter; visit it at your own risk). Since the domain’s only purpose in the end was to host the Women in Refrigerators site I built (I think on GeoCities) back in 2000, I’ve moved said site to my permanent (and not going away while I draw breath) domain.

The site, including its adorable Year 2000 assumptions about maximum screen resolutions, is now located at Please make a note of it.

Halloween iPhone 5 wallpaper

I’ve seen this image multiple places around the Internet and wasn’t able to ascertain its origin. If it belongs to you, let me know and I’ll attribute it correctly, or take it down, as you prefer. Otherwise, enjoy the wallpaper — I love this creepy jack-o’-lantern.

Podcasts I subscribe to, Sept. 2012 edition

The staggering awfulness of the iOS6 Podcast app — which I’m now forced to use, since Apple disabled playing podcasts through their regular Music app — has forced me to look into alternative podcasting apps for my phone. My new job has me driving a lot more — I’ve driven 732 miles since the last time I submitted my mileage to the paper, almost four weeks ago — and I listen to podcasts when I drive, so this is a matter of some importance to me.

I’ll likely be switching over to Downcast or Stitcher, plugging the following podcasts into whatever new program:

World of Warcraft - Dwarf Crest iPhone 5 wallpaperWorld of Warcraft - Goblin Crest iPhone 5 wallpaper

To celebrate the release of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, here are iPhone 5 wallpapers for the two best races to play. (Gnomes are also acceptable and, in theory, so are pandaren, although I’m sure I’ll disagree on that latter point once every other person is playing one in a week’s time.)

If it seems like this is a lot of posts featuring new wallpapers, I actually did them all on one lazy Sunday afternoon. I’m not sure if that’s better or worse, but at least it means this semi-defunct blog hasn’t been turned into an all-wallpaper blog instead of whatever it was previously.

Pirate flag iPhone 5 wallpaper

Just in time for Talk Like a Pirate Day — arguably the most important holiday of the year, in any nation or religion — wallpaper based on Calico Jack Rackham’s flag (much cooler than the more traditionally seen Edward England flag). I’ve learned way more than was perhaps intended about pirate flags over the years shopping at (Where I have, not coincidentally, bought multiple Calico Jack shirts.)
