1. Kitteny birthdays to beingjdc for yesterday and to lnr for today. In lnr's case, possibly kitten-ear-y birthdays might be closer to the mark.

2. The Kasparov-Fritz match ended up 2-2. The conspiracy theorists might point to the number of such draws in man-machine matches recently and the commercial desirability of such a result for keeping the series of said matches going, but I think the match was so short that a draw was always a reasonably likely result anyhow - and at least there was a decisive result on each side. The conspiracy theorists will always find some reason to suspect the enterprise is rrrrigggggged, only with more Rs and Gs, whatever the final score.

3. North-east England folks, any mileage in the concept of going to join President G. W. Bush on his brief tour of the locality on Friday morning? I'm not proposing egg-throwing or anything else militant, merely respectfully expressing disapproval in a vocal (and more importantly, body-count) fashion. Current banner concept:
LOVE AMERICANS,
HATE BUSH</td>
but only because the more accurate
LOVE AMERICANS,
VERY SERIOUS CONCERNS ABOUT THE
IDEOLOGY BEHIND THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION
would make for a frankly crap banner - even if it were done in an ironic SUPER-CHICKEN fashion. sbisson once pointed to a picture of someone on the anti-war demo who had brought along a banner marked "GENERIC SLOGAN" - I fear the Sedgefield demo is likely not to be large enough to permit such self-awareness.

4. OCTOBER:
Does not play well with memes.

5. And because a LiveJournal post isn't really complete until the first person replies to it, let's add a link to Human Pacman. How I dearly, dearly hope that one of the rules is that the human playing the Pacman character must make opening-and-closing-jaw motions with their arms at full stretch and "waka-waka-waka" noises. Genuine Live Action Super Bomberman by this time next year, I'm convinced of it.
