Here is as close as we’ve ever got to a poster of the entire cast of Futurama… from their most recent direct-to-DVD movie Into the Wild Green Yonder. It’s notable for two things in my mind: first, it doesn’t include most of the principles (they would be easy to add) and second, wow, Futurama just doesn’t have as many characters as Simpsons. Simpsons has a LOT of characters. What do they say, 50 active on-going basis? That’s a lot.
And now my fellow Earthicans … More Futurama is Coming …
Comedy Central was happy with the specials and with the 72 produced episodes of "Futurama" it acquired from 20th Century Fox TV in 2006. "Yet there is nothing like new, self-contained episodes week to week," said David Bernath, Comedy Central's senior vp programming. "This is all about reinvigorating the franchise, giving it a new burst of energy."
In other words, futurama pays.
OK, this is stupid but I came up with this joke for Zap Brannigan.
SCENE: ZAP BRANNIGAN IS YET AGAIN TAKING CHARGE OF A
TOP-PRIORITY MILITARY MISSION BY DRAFTING SOMEONE. LET'S SAY
LEELA. IT COULD BE ANYONE, THOUGH.
ZAP: Ahh, do you remember me? I'm Zap Brannigan.
Captain Zap Brannigan. I put myself in your charge.
SOMEONE: How generous of you.
ZAP: By which I mean I put myself in Charge. Of You.
Lame joke? Maybe. But I don’t see YOU making up jokes and blogging them for everyone to see.Read the rest of The Entire Cast of Futurama — someone should make a poster

Nokia’s new N97, I was hoping it would be the next great phone. But looking at a review in AAS, it looks like they totally blew it on the keyboard. There are only three rows of keys, which means that the space bar is in completely the wrong place. Gak!Read the rest of Nokia blows it on the N97

So there I was, watching the Incredible Hulk titles again in slow-motion, because I’m always curious as to what the special effects people write into the various fake news stories and computer graphics. Sometimes it’s funny. And I came across this little easter egg which seems to have been missed by fans on the net.Read the rest of Incredible Hulk easter egg: Nick Fury letter
I have a theory about this one. Because they can easily go to Matching and turn it off temporarily. But I think that some people leave it on, because they want the ego boost, even though they’re going to shut down the match anyway.Read the rest of Why do people on eHarmony close with "I am pursuing another relationship"?
The Restful Authentication plugin seems to be the standard right now, although I’m staring to wish I’d tried something else, maybe AuthLogic… because restful_authentication is kind of poorly documented. One serious error of ommission is how the hell do you update your tests so that you can run them on controllers that require a logged in user? Well, I have had the pain, and so you can have the quick answer, here it is.Read the rest of How to do rails tests when running with restful_authentication
