Links 'n' Memes, Memes 'n' Links

It's Saturday. Nobody's here on Saturday anyway.

Via gutbloom (who got it from hep who got it from substitute): siln says NO WAI!. WAI!

Via scottobear: KittenAuth! A substitute for authorization systems that filter out 'bots by requiring the copying of some messed up letters and numbers into a box. Cute kittens (while the bandwidth holds out.)

This is that "favorite albums" meme based on code from that site that primarily does layouts for MySpace users. It's essentially just an advertising mechanism for Amazon, but WTH. Many of these are albums I don't have, substituting for albums I actually do have but which the site is unable to fetch. Others shown I do have, but aren't necessarily my favorite albums by those particular people. I could easily do a dozen more albums, to give a slightly better idea of my musical tastes, which are quite eclectic (the stuff displayed is reflective of what I've been listening to lately, and might be entirely different a month from now), but I'm on dial-up, and I'm tired of clicking and waiting. I think the picture one of the albums in the top row will be missing. I don't know how to fix it. It was a recording of Stravinsky's Firebird conducted by Pierre Boulez.

Also, that LJ popularity thing that was going around based on Google's page rank algorithm:

flying_blind's LiveJournal popularity rating is 4.44/10.
flying_blind is more popular than 99.21% of all LiveJournal users.
flying_blind is more popular than 54.8% of their mutual friends.

How popular are you?

I suspect that my fairly high page rank rating is the result of having been added to the friends lists of a number of very popular journals, especially photographers such as edbook, myasma and _benedicte, mattcallow and forioscribe who are ranked very high themselves.
