My friend and colleague Jeff Duntemann has been kind enough to make Over The Edge one of three blogs linked from his own long-running weblog. One of the others is written by Jim Mischel. I have no idea who Jim Mischel is, but I’ve had a ton of fun reading his stuff. Jim’s major contribution to my day, however, has been a link to The Flo Control Project, wherein, well…:
The guy’s using a digital camera hooked to a computer to take a picture of his cat Flo on the way into the house. If the picture compares favorably with a picture on file, then the cat’s door is unlocked. If the cat is carrying a mouse or a bird or other present, or if the cat at the door isn’t really the cat, then the door remains locked.
