If you want to know if Spot loves you so, it's in his tail

When dogs feel fundamentally positive about something or someone, their tails wag more to the right side of their rumps. When they have negative feelings, their tail wagging is biased to the left.

It suggests that the muscles in the right side of the tail reflect positive emotions while the muscles in the left side express negative ones.

Sounds like a good candidate for an Ig Nobel prize.

Mozy Online Backup

Nerds, rejoice.

Online backup company Mozy is here to save your data. Mozy is essentially off-site backup storage for the consumer. What’s that, you say, you don’t have off-site storage? What happens if tragedy strikes and your hard drive fails and the last backup you made was a 700MB CD two months ago?

With Mozy, you get 2GB of storage and a client that automatically synchs your new data to the Mozy servers. The best part? It’s free. 2 GB of free storage. Got more than 2 GB? For $5 a month you get unlimited storage.

And they’re not going anywhere; Mozy just landed a contract with GE to provide the Pro service to all 300,000+ employees.

I’ve been using the service for about a week and even convinced J– to try it out. If you’re thinking about trying it out, consider using this link to get me a referral. If you do use it, we each get an additional 256MB of storage space.  

Party in GR – 20 April

Get your petty cash out and butter up the significant others because we’re going out on the town. The semi-annual TPC Board Advisory/excuse to drink with Dr. Sandy is on this week Friday. You don’t have to be a board member to attend (although you will have to drink with board members) to come out. We’re starting at Sazarac Lounge and maybe a trip to Cambridge House; who knows.

So polish off your weekly cartoons, write that movie review, by the kids a DVD. Just get your butt out to Sazarac at 6:30 this Friday. No photos will be taken. Well, maybe one if we get John to do that thing.
