Podiobooks are cool

Check out this cool website:
They host a whole set of mostly unpublished authors' audiobooks, and allows you to subscribe to the book as an RSS feed; you can recieve a new chapter every day,  week, or month to allow slow consumption.
There are some great books on there, I've been exploring it for the last few days.

It combines very well with, which is a personalized homepage that I have been using. It lets you set up RSS feeds and many other things to show everytime you open your browser. Mine is set up to get my email, about 10 blogs from my friends, weather, news, and also has a notes and to-do-list feature.

Combine them?

Take the money and run

Hello everyone. Max here, reporting from the city of Bellingham. Did you know that Bellingham was the site of a gold rush of 80,000 miners in 1858?

Random fact for the readers. I picked up the Hiking Guide to Whatcom County earlier, should make for interesting tramps. I am considering making a foray out to Olympic National Park over spring break, we shall see. Contingent on the sky not falling down in a thuderous wet splash, as has been known to happen around here in March. Here are a few pictures from up here.
