Coconut Crabs, etc

Haven't heard about these creatures until my father mentioned it recently. Yeah, strange topics of conversation we have around here. The coconut crab is a land crab, with a leg span of up to 3 feet, that climbs coconut trees and eats coconuts. I don't think the last paragraph on that web page is correct though. As this article explains, fertilization occurs on land and that's more plausible.

Read this today: 30 Days to Becoming an Opera7 Lover. Even though I've been using the Opera web browser for quite some time now, there were still a few features described here that I didn't know about. So anyone using Opera may want to at least skim through it.

I also find the Google Deskbar to be pretty useful. It just seems faster to run the searches in the taskbar. I don't think it actually saves any keystrokes over Opera's Google shortcut if Opera is already on top but it does provide quick access to Google Images, News and Groups.

Today's disappointment: Went to the Main Plaza in Ramsey this evening and found that the Pepperidge Farm outlet store had disappeared. Funny thing is I didn't think the store was doing badly at all while it was still open for business.
