Tim Hildebrandt died Sunday of complications due to diabetes at the age of 67. The Bros’ official site is here, if you wish to look over their art. I’ve found some of my favorite pieces they’ve done and will post them below. Tim’s eye for colors and design will be missed.

If the entire eastern seaboard should be destroyed today or tommorrow, I want my family and friends to know that I love them and care about them.
If it’s not wiped out, know that I still care, I just have longer to avoid telling you.

I’m a big fan of Puzzle Pirates. I was a beta tester and really enjoyed the game, even though I chose not to renew my subscription. They have a different payment model available now for some servers, where you get to play for free, but you need to purchase in-game currency to play certain “pay for” portions, or for items. I know that several of my friends have played Puzzle Pirates before, including Jeremy who’s currently playing. The developer, Three Rings Design, has been working on another game called Bang!Howdy.

I’ve always been a big fan of palindromes. While I don’t remember the specifics of when I learned about them as a kid, I have vague memories of real simple ones such as “race car”, “deed”, or “rotor”. Later, I learned that there were more than just simple letter mirrored palindromes. There are word palindromes, and sound based palindromes. Did you know that palindromes are at least 2,000 years old? Check out the Wikipedia entry for an even more detailed explanation and some samples! Doing a Google Search will also return lots of results.

Voice over IP (VoIP) kingpin Skype has done the unthinkable and introduced 100% free phone calls to all US and Canadian landline and mobile numbers.
The internet telephony service, recently purchased by eBay, say the offer will last “at least until the end of 2006” – and reveal that there’s not a sign up cost or hidden charge in site. The only snag to be found is that the SkypeOut caller must also be in the US or Canada.

So friday, I’m out of the office working on one of the executive’s home PCs. As I was leaving the house, I beheld a wonderous site – a fox, walking across the road. I just slowed my car down and watched him take a very nonchalant walk around the 5th green (the house was on a golf course) and lay down and roll around in the tall grass.
