Hogfather, scanlation cleaning, Doinking things, Cocoa, Abusing Balance Transfers

Parts I and II up on torrents everywhere. Hmmm.

Cleaning Compendium. Goes (IMO) overboard with the cleaning, but eh, I'm getting pretty good quality raw scans. I think.

Shishi Odoshi: (aka, That Thing That Goes Doink)
...instructions for making one. To do. Maybe. Mrrrr.... time and materials...

The recommended Cocoa programming book. To find:

Abusing 0% APR-for-a-year balance transfers to earn money using credit cards. I don't think I can get a big enough card to really do this yet, but apparently my dad's done it before. And so have many other people... Interesting. (Essentially, you use the free "loan" of money from the credit card companies to earn interest at a high interest savings account, like ING Direct or HSBC, and return the borrowed chunk at the end of the year. It nets you around $250-500, depending on how much you put in, and the service fee for doing a balance transfer.)
