Lazy Reading for 2012/09/30

It’s been an extremely busy week for me, but I still have a batch of links here.

Your unrelated link of the week: Did you know one of the original ideas was to name DragonFly “TortoiseBSD” “TurtleBSD”?  Probably not the best name.

    Nope, the name was TurtleBSD.

  2. Dangit, I can’t even keep turtles and tortoises straight when talking about the actual animal. I’m going to call them “shell thingies” from now on.

    “Shell thingie BSD”.

    Damn you commenter above me!
    That’s what I get for opening things in tabs and not dealing with them immediately.

  6. Perhaps this is because I live in the US, but I’ve only ever heard “terrapin” from English books or from Grateful Dead fans. (I grew up near a Terrapin Station head shop/dead shop, for instance.)
