Well, something really strange happened today. Almost strange enough to make me start wearing my tinfoil beanie…
About a week ago I was in Tower Records browsing the magazine department, and I came across a bunch of Linux magazines, MAKE magazine (which looks pretty cool), 2600 magazine (the mag. for phreakers) and Wired magazine. Well, I thought the cover of Wired looked really cool, so, to myself I mused out loud “Hmm, this looks pretty cool. Maybe I should get a subscription.”
Today in the mail came a notice from Wired themselves asking me to buy a 2 year subscription. In fact, the notice looks more like a renewal notice, but as I do not get Wired magazine, it can’t be. So, I won’t be getting a subscription, since I’m poor, but hey, at least they were kind enough to send one out, despite the fact that they must be reading my brain waves, or have REALLY good people on the lookout at Tower. So yes, very very strange.
On another note, I’ve decided to stop learning Japanese for a while (not that I’ve done much more than practiced the Kana recently) to pick up Esperanto, mostly because it looks nice and easy to learn. And there is a community of nice people around the world who speak it.
