Moscow (CNN) — A meteor streaked through the skies above Russia’s Urals region Friday (2/15) morning before exploding with a flash and boom that shattered glass in buildings and left about 1,000 people hurt, authorities said.
Described by NASA as a “tiny asteroid,” the meteor’s explosion created a blast in central Russia equivalent to 300,000 tons of TNT, the space agency’s officials said Friday, adding that the incident was a once-in-100-years event.
I wonder if this meteor is related to that asteroid that flew by on 2/15. The heaven’s are starting to rain down upon us.

Opera software announced this morning that it is dumping its homegrown Presto rendering engine in favor of the increasingly ubiquitous WebKit rendering engine.
Indeed, while Opera’s official announcement is vague about the reasons for the switch, it doesn’t take a soothsayer to know that the reason is mobile. One influencing factor is no doubt the fact that Apple’s iOS only allows third-party web browsers if they use the built-in WebKit rendering engine.
It’s a sad day and I’d bet it has everything to do with the last line in the last paragraph above.
Opera Presto was top-notch in the rendering arena and I could always count on pages displaying as they should when it came to Opera testing.

Finished product above.
Planning is the key, cut once and measure nothing.
Another finished photo but pay no attention to that nasty glare. I was excited.
For best results, follow their advice: “Take you time.”
It took me a couple of months to order them, get them hung and post them but I’m overly pleased with the results.

Pretty easy to know me based on the magazines I keep: Catwoman, Scary Monsters and Mental Floss.
“Winick’s perfected a strange, easy magic with Catwoman” reads the cover. This might have something to do with the 15+ ass/crotch shots but I’m not sure. The story and art are good, though. Seriously.
Scary Monsters has some way-cool Frankenstein dot art by Rick “Spike” Mountfort. There’s also a photo of an early 70s article titled “Dracula Was A Woman” which persuades the reader that the count was actually based on Elizabeth Bathory. Don’t look.
Mental Floss told me that I spend an hour a day chewing. Groan, I got other shit to do. I might just start swallowing whole.

I had high hopes for at least the CSS3 Column styles being supported by the major and latest browsers. After an hour or two though, my hopes have shriveled to the don’t bother point.
These guys have fairly good support so I was off to a good start:
column-break-before: always sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t. Maybe I didn’t measure the secret sauce ingredients to properly bake the render.
And the one that can really help you “design” your page, Firefox gives up and completely ignores it:
column-span: all. Internet Explorer 9 and below ignore the whole lot.
I’ll just ignore them, pretend like they don’t exist and revisit the styles and rules in a couple of years. In the meantime, I’ll happily carry on with
PS— Gecko and Webkit need their vendor prefixes for most (and maybe all) rules to work. Love it.

A fantastic photo montage by Russian artist and photographer Sergey Akinfiev. Be sure to check out the showcase section of his site for more cool stuff.
Alas, if only I had the free time of the teenage tcr! and the power of computing that lay before me tonight. I’d be like the two turtles taped together, unstoppable.
Akinfiev work is awesome. Check it out.

The KudOktopus case is stainless steel, 42mm in diameter, and has sapphire crystal on the top and back. Its mechanical movement requires manual winding to keep its tempered blue Breguet steel hands moving smoothly. The strap and buckle are Louisiana alligator or calf leather and stainless steel.
Even better than the photo above is a video.
