The Daily Ping

The original Ping was painfully written in Perl.

Here’s a bizarre idea: growing vegetables for those that hate going outside. At MyVeggiePatch, you can remotely grow your own vegetables and then have them delivered to your house. You call the shots, how much to water, when to water, etc. The site will give you suggestions based on how your veggies are doing, but for the most part, you’re in control.

I believe this service is only available in the UK, with the cheapest plot table going for $720/year. Prices go up to $1448/year for a transitional-organic plot with five extra veggies of your choice. -ram

I forgot to ask--will they let you grow hemp and poppies?

I doubt it since they only deal with veggies and not plants. :)

Right, Ryan. I know you're part of the conspiracy.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
