Haunted Mansion Etsy Rummage: the golden age of Mansion merch
Apart from 1975-80, this is the greatest time to be a Haunted Mansion fan and collector, writes Cory Doctorow -- and it's all thanks to Etsy.
Apart from the great Randotti era, this is the greatest time to be a Haunted Mansion fan and collector, and it's all thanks to Etsy. I've just had a rummage through the Mansion handicrafts for sale there, and I present herewith my favorites.

Madame Leota Spellbook Haunted Mansion Replica

Disneyland T-Shirt Disney T-Shirt The Haunted Mansion Ride Glow In The Dark T-Shirt Black T-Shirt
$148. This is just silly, but it's the best HM shirt they ever did, in my opinion, and I'm quite sentimental about the design since it's the shirt I was wearing when I met my first serious girlfriend, and I continued to wear it for 10+ years, until it hung in rags. I still have it.
George RR Martin, 1993 "The fantasy novel I've been working on off and on for a while" is an unlikely project for TV

After digging out the tape, I couldn’t resist incorporating his amusing admission about ‘a fantasy novel I’ve been working […]
Zero-knowledge proofs are one of the most important concepts in cryptography: they’re a way to “validate a computation on private data by allowing a prover to generate a cryptographic proof that asserts to the correctness of the computed output” — in other words, a way to prove that something is true without learning the details.
Retroworks’ $18 decoder rings don’t have much by way of cryptographic robustness (they compare disfavorably to the cipher-wheel wedding rings my wife and I wear!), but they’re not a bad way to introduce the littlies in your life to the idea of habitual secrecy. (via Red Ferret)
