Russians Cut Apart and Reassemble Dogs!

In the late hours of August 19, 2008, Russian scientists succeeded in a project to cut apart and reassemble dogs.  Biotechnicians in at lease twenty countries have been trying to accomplish this feat for several decades now, but it was not until last night until somebody reported success.

When asked about this feat, Dr. Vladimir Prokofski simply answered “it was bound to happen, and I’m glad we were the ones to do it”.  He then secretly – or so he thought – removed a vial of super glue from his lab coat pocket and began to sniff it.  Reporters then asked if the superglue was involved in the project in any way, and Dr. Prokofski declined to answer, saying the interview was over, turning around, and walking away wagging his freshly glued-on tail.

American scientists also declined to comment on this accomplishment, stating that they would only give interviews if and when they are able to replicate the results obtained by the Russian scientists.

Rounded Plurks

I am working on getting the Plurk boxes rounded to look a little nicer.  I have some early CSS written up that almost works, but I am having a hard time making the right hand border line up when a plurk is expanded. I think it has to do with that width being dynamically hard-coded. Yes, that sounds a bit odd, but it’s basically on page load, the plurk code sets a static width on the expanded box.

So, I am looking into fun tricks like negative margins and/or padding, but not having too much luck so far.  For anyone that wants to use what I have so far, here is the CSS ( it also includes a piece to round your dashboard):

#plurk-dashboard  {

color: #ffffff;
margin: 0 5px;
padding: 10px;
border: 2px solid #ffffff;
-moz-border-radius: 6px;
-khtml-border-radius: 6px;
-webkit-border-radius: 6px;
border-radius: 6px;

.plurk_cnt  {
border: 1px solid #000000;
-moz-border-radius: 3px;
-khtml-border-radius: 3px;
-webkit-border-radius: 3px;
border-radius: 3px;

border-right: 1px solid #000000;
border-left: 1px solid #000000;
