Hijacking Headers to Force Downloads. Good snippet to have there at the bottom of the post.     #>

How To Build A Quad Flash Bracket From PVC Pipes. Clever.     #>

BC Hydro Power Smart - "Chickens to Paralyze" . Heh.     #>

Cineplex VIP Cinemas. Look great but were a 50% premium over what I paid to see The Hunger Games so I passed. Love the idea though of no kids in the theater!     #>

Solar Pathfinder, what my electrician used on my roof to tell me the optimal placement of the panels, as well as telling me which trees would be a problem during which months. Very slick and only a couple hundred bucks.     #>

Harms of Post-9/11 Airline Security. Amen, this should be required reading for every Congressperson.     #>

Tim DeChristopher Placed in Isolated Confinement. It's pathetic the way he's being treated for his non-violent protest action.     #>

Hesperian Health Guides - Books and Resources. Some really useful things in there.     #>

Cadbury Eggs. Hah, when I was younger I came up with something similar - the Hershey's test. A Hershey's chocolate bar had 11 grams of fat. I'd measure what I wanted to eat against that and then decide how I'd feel if I ate the equivalent number of Hershey's bars (which I am not fond of). So a Hostess fruit pie became 2 Hershey's bars, which would have made me sick so I didn't eat either thing.     #>

Death of a data haven: cypherpunks, WikiLeaks, and the world's smallest nation. Worth a read.     #>
