Tower Defence Game

This ugly little game at http://www.jeannettevejarano.com/tower-defence.swf is deceptively difficult and highly addictive.

For the first few levels you think: "what's the point", then you start thinking: "hey I'm good at this" then you get to the mid-60's levels and think "AAaaaarrgghhhhh!!!!!"

My record is level 79, although that must have been a fluke cause I can't duplicate it. The best I've had since is level 78.

EDIT: I just watched someone get to Level 82. AAAAAAaaaaaaaarrrrgggggggghhhhhhhh!!!!

EDIT: The record I know of is now level 84, the author of the game only got to level 90, although I'll bet that was on an earlier version that had more bugsd and was easier than this one.

EDIT: Well what do you know, the site I found this on has exceeded its bandwidth limit. Good job I saved a copy here

If anyone can figure out how to get past level 84 please let me know how.

Kevin Cornell's Cubbyhole Mind

About a year ago I discovered an article by professional illustrator and designer Kevin Cornell about his Cubbyhole Mind on his website www.bearskinrug.co.uk.

I emailed him and asked if I could use his images on my home page www.cubbyhole.org. He was happy to let me copy the images and host them so long as he was credited and I linked back to his site. Ever since then the cubbyhole pictures have been on my front page.

Now, they have finally been relegated to here

Companies to update websites and email footers before 2007 | The Register

The first I heard of this was December 21st, 4 working days before it has to be implemented. I wonder how many companies will fall foul of this law and what the process for enforcement and punishment is.
