Velato - is an esoteric programming language by User:Rottytooth, which uses MIDI files as source code. Programs in Velato, like in Fugue, are defined by the pitch and order of notes. Velato is intended to allow for flexibility in composition, so functional programs will not necessarily sound like random notes. There is a tendency for Velato programs to have jazz-like harmonies.

Somatic Experiencing - is a form of therapy aimed at relieving and resolving the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental and physical trauma-related health problems by focusing on the client?s perceived body sensations (or somatic experiences).
PSYCHOLOGY: A Walk in the Woods
Spending time in the outdoors is commonly regarded as a wholesome approach to coping with the cacophony of contemporary developed societies. But does immersion in a natural environment lead to more than simply a sense of feeling refreshed--that is, might the metaphorical recharging of one's batteries be real? Berman et al. find that the less obtrusive sensory stimuli provided by a walk through an arboretum enabled people to perform better on a standard working memory task (backward digit span), in comparison to the stimuli of a stroll through a downtown landscape. Subsequent testing revealed a specific effect of scenic as opposed to urban settings on the executive portions (versus the alerting or orienting components) of an attentional network task, suggesting that a brief hiatus from focused application of attention allows for the replenishment and renewal of cognitive control centers. -- GJC

I was getting a bug where the system would hang after the message
setting system clock using the hardware clock
There is a workaround here.
The --directisa option in /etc/init.d/hwclock worked for me.
Also, if this still doesn't work, make sure that the bios clock is not wildy inaccurate, this can also cause it to hang.

Easily browse flickr images with ihardlyknowher.com.
This is so awesome and LOL, because it's just a bunch of images, just like web pages back in 1995, but it's so much better than that fancy web 2.0 nonsense for looking at images quickly.
There is something here that needs exploring. How much of the new navigation tools that we have created actually make it harder for people to get at the information they want?
Is this web 3.0 in the making? Take the data from web 2.0 sites and present it in the way that the users really want, which might be just a list of pictures on a web page, like this?
