Panda Inside

Need to cut down on my Sam's Choice Mountain Lightning (generic Mountain Dew) intake. It's acidic and sugary, bad for my teeth, my health, and my weight. (My weight being something I really need to start working on, since I'm lazy, I do little if any exercise, and I eat not only too much but the wrong sorts of things. Yes, I've totally neglected anything resembling exercise, fitness, diet, or nutrition for my entire life.)

Tempting to make Kool-Aid, using regular Kool-Aid packets, except using Water Joe (or equivalent) instead of plain water, and getting this Canadian stuff I've heard of called Sugar Twin instead of real sugar. Anyone have any more information on this Sugar Twin stuff or know a (preferably easy) way to get it? Aparently I'd need to get it from Canada, as it's not sold in the US, or if it is it's not the same stuff as the Canadian version. And yes, I know they make 'sugar-free" Kool-Aid, but I refuse to touch US sugar-free beverages or sweeteners. Any ideas?

In other news, I've been thinking of looking for this game called Jarts. Yes, I know they're banned in the US, but I quite frankly don't give a s**t, it looks like fun and I want to try it.

This is nice. I was checking my email, and I see an email supposedly from service@paypal.com . In my Bulk Mail folder. And I don't even have a PayPal account. Of course, they want you to folloe a link to their site and sign in to 'verify' your account. The link they gave is . Simply going to gives you "Test Page for the Apache Server on Red Hat Linux". I wonder how long before someone with half a brain gets pissedat them and hacks them bigtime? You know, delete the info they've already stolen, let some virii loose on their setup, change the fake login page to say "this is a scam" in big red all-caps letters, maybe put something funny on their main page, perhaps share mp3s on their server, those sorts of things. In theory, I could probably easily download some tools or something to break right in, but I'd rather leave it to people who actually know what they're doing, instead of being a lame 'skript kiddie' or whatever they're called now.
