I can’t remember how long we’ve been inside this Local Fluff, but does that matter anyway? It won’t be too long before this funky, rainless cloud gets off of us.

Not too long, anyway, if you compare to the current scheduled date for the Milky Way-Andromeda collaboration concert. Oh, how I wish I could be there to see such spectacular phenomenon!

Ah well, back to work now. Gotta work hard if we’re to find somewhere else to live, hopefully close enough, around our own Local Group. Can’t get too careless here, lest ol’ slumbering dragon, Sagittarius A*, might decide to go rampant on us all, sucking our very existence into oblivion.

But worry not, if we’re lucky our dragon friend will reach us in the next few Googol years, so by this weekend I believe we can sit back and enjoy our vacation down the Magellanic Stream.

Whaddya think? Will the kids love it?


Update (12 March 2007): Go here for the official page of Silveriecon. Updates will be done there.

Okay, so I have a new project. From this day onwards, I will be creating one icon everyday, in hope that it will grow into a collection of icons that everyone can use for free (it will be licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 License).

This is my first attempt of creating set icons, and for the first project I will be naming it Silveriecon. Basically Silveriecon is a 16×16, (not surprisingly) silver-flavored icon set. I already started today and I created not one, not two, but ten twenty-two icons today!

I love breaking my own rules.

Anyways,  I just found out that this free WordPress.com account does not allow uploading of zip contents, so I will have to either upload the files to the many free file-uploading service out there, or I host it in my own space.Either way, I guess I will have to go find that upload space right now. No downloadables now, but will be soon.


Freebase. Might really, really, really want to remember this.

I’m guilty for procrastinating. And I hate that! The time I waste procrastinating is the time I don’t spend with people I care/books I want to read/deeds I’d rather be doing. But it’s very hard to fight!
