A large series of explosions
erupted this morning from a welding chemical storage facility in North York (a suburb of Toronto) at approximately 4am EST. The highway 401, North America's busiest, has been closed in sections, and thousands of local residents are still being evacuated, with several of them injured
. Police and fire officials are currently not sure of the possibility of further explosions and are taking precautionary measures. The whole situation has produced
some apocalyptic-looking pictures

I didn't think this
would be cool but after seeing the video I am converted. Experience the original Super Mario in 3d... with a shotgun?

Your iPod is Doomed!
Or it can be, it can also be Zelda
'ed if you prefer! ipodlinux.org
has ported Linux to the iPod (for Linux, Windows and Mac) and, once its installed, you can load up all kinds of good stuff
including the aforementioned Doom, as well as the entire Wiki
or use your iPod as a Gameboy
! And all without screwing up your existing music files (though there are no guarantees).

[nytimesfilter] Why is the New York Times obsessed
with doom metal
? For a newspaper that gives perfunctory (at best) coverage to non-classical, non-top-40 music, the publication of two articles about one marginal subgenre
of indie rock seems incredibly conspiratorial.

Early in the morning on November 21, 1980, twelve men abandonded their oil rig on Lake Peigneur in Louisiana, suspecting that something was wrong. Little did they know they created a SWIRLING VORTEX OF DOOM!

From the followup department: Global dimming
? It stopped
. "We see the dimming is no longer there," said Dr. Martin Wild, a climatologist at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and the lead author of one of three papers analyzing sunlight that appear in today's issue of the journal Science. "If anything, there is a brightening."
As always, use bugmenot to bypass registration.

JDoom. Get this.
It's a patch for Doom that allows for 3D acceleration, dynamic lighting, free mouse looking, and remapping keys. Works with ANY
version of Doom. Simply Unzip the file
[737k] into your Doom dir and run JDoom.bat (for OpenGL mode). It also supports D3D (I'll explain inside). Some screenshots: 1 2 3
. Doom shareware is available here
