A few months ago while driving down Ford I noticed a sushi restaurant was being setup in the small plaza on North-West corner of Ford & Lilley - O'Sushi. It had an 'opening soon banner' for quite a long time. A few weeks ago they opened, and tonight, I decided to try them out. There is only one word I can use to describe the taste of their cuisine - exquisite. I ordered a spider roll, a philadelphia roll, and a cup of green tea. Very, very, very, very good sushi. The chefs even prepared sp...

Over the past couple days I've been getting side-tracked from the VESA version of BootSkin to work on a couple other projects.

Yesterday I found out about a site called PopDex. Basically they crawl blogs, and sort out what everyone is linking to, giving each link a score from 0 to 100 based on the amount of people linking, then aggregate it into a list, which has it's own RSS feed. The highest scoring links make it to the top of the list. Because of this, you can hit this site and find out what "everyone's talking about". Pretty neat!
