There's another thing besides the Leonids I didn't see tonight. It is the web site Mystery Clock, a project of Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City) which, unfortunately for me, requires flash and shockwave and all that stuff Sluggo hates so much, and for which broadband is recommended as well. I've never seen The Crow, but I've heard good things about it, and Dark City is one of my favorite movies of recent years. Somebody go look at the site and tell me about it so I can be envious.
Also, I found the Proyas site by following links from Boing Boing, which bills itself as "A Directory of Wonderful Things." It is pretty wonderful, with lots of interesting tidbits about all sorts of things on its main page, and goatloads of links to still more wonders. Highly recommended.
