First dog watch, 2 bells (5:03 pm)

Moue, because it sounds like the cow sound "moo."

From Merriam-Webster's word of the day mailing list:

Meaning
a little grimace : pout

Example Sentence
"She made a little moue, shrugged one shoulder, dipped her head ever so slightly to set the artificial bird atop her hat in motion." (T. Coraghessan Boyle, The Road to Wellville)

Haha! She made a little moo!

Details About Telnet Options
Posted in Tech
First watch, 8 bells (12:13 am)

I found a great page today with all the telnet options in order and referencing the RFC that explains each one. Probably useless to 99.9999% of the population, but I find it quite interesting considering I've been writing a MUD/telnet driver for years now.
