Sigh (Has the sky fallen yet?)

There's a story up on CNN about an apparent price increase (have to update my slides for tomorrow I suppose), which says we're up to $186 (US) dollars for the price. (As noted in the article) most of that does appear to be fluctuations in the US dollar. In the last 120 days the (US) ...

Missed a ticket on a long thread (Introduction to Bitfrost-limited application development...)

Ivan punted a todo at me in a long thread on devel almost a month ago, but it got auto-sorted into a folder and I only got around to reading the thread today. Basically he's thinking we need a document describing how to work within Bitfrost as a short version of the spec, an application ...

He was talking about schemes such as having computers in the libraries that could be checked out, or maybe ...

Cool, I'm married (Ring to prove it...)

Well, as of yesterday afternoon, I am now a married man. Soni was beautiful. The wedding march (Imperial March from Star Wars by Metallica) wasn't loud or distinct enough to be scary/ominous sounding, but she still came down the aisle. It wasn't the aisle we'd wanted (we wanted the outdoor chapel, but it was raining). ...
