God.  I could actually feel the brain cells dying while carefully
examining this site (possibly due to the beer I'm sucking down, possibly
not).  I can only conclude that it is part of some hienous plot to sap
the life-forces of geeks everywhere.

Thank heavens the Tamagachi didn't come with a networking interface --
if it fell into the hands of these fiends the result could end
civilization as we know it.

Can you just imagine the conversations?

"Oops.  A node just died."

"What, it broke?  Call the dealer."

"No, it died.  I got behind in feeding all the nodes today and it
starved to death.  Gotta pen?  I have to press the reset button and
start feeding the next one or I'll have a mass extinction event..."
