Congratulations, if you observe Daylight Savings Time today, you’ve just lost an hour of sleep. You just knew that activating the ultimate snooze button had to have some consequence.

Getting up at 2AM to change your clock is such a hassle. If only there was some substance to it, then it might be worth it.

Today is Groundhog Day. For those who don’t know, Groundhog day is the day where we reject meteorologists and instead analyze the behaviour of a groundhog (not that the meteorologists were ever right in the first place, but that’s beside the point). If it sees its shadow and goes back into its burrow and winter will be prolonged for another six weeks.

Who’s to say that isn’t just some conspiracy spread by the the pork haters? Perhaps Peter Fox is right and the real reason why Groundhog Day exists is to celebrate ground pork. Bring out the sausages!

FoxTrot 2003-01-02: Jason choosing his new year’s resolutions

I think I might try running on 320x240 one day and see if I can survive. It may not be listed in the Windows 7 screen resolutions dialog, but it is possible: run a program in 640x480 compatibility mode, then open the screen resolution dialog; the option for 320x240 should be there.

Here’s a screenshot of my attempt from last year:

Windows 7 320x240 resolution

Windows 7 with Aero running with a resolution of 320×240

I want to do this again, but in 256 colour mode.

Have you procrastinated and put off your Christmas cards until now? You go off to the store and find out that it’s closed or they’re all sold out of Christmas-themed cards. Maybe you’re just too cheap to buy cards this year. Why not try making your own?

As always, credits go to Bill Amend.

All Hallows’ Evening, better known as Halloween, is here! Now, I don’t celebrate Halloween, but I do take advantage of the day to do something clever, namely pin a clever sign on my shirt. This year is HTTP status code 418:

It’s that time of year again: back to school! A good sleep has been linked to success, so you might as well get some. Unfortunately, kids tend to get homework that keeps them awake at night, then they have to get up early to go to school, so they don’t get much sleep. How do the FoxTrot kids handle it?

Check back at the end of the week to see how Jason handles it!
