I redid the blogroll on the left (in the Radio version of this site) based on some new functionality in Radio 8.0.8. Looks good.(11:33 PM)

'Star Wars' franchise needs helping Han: "I realized after seeing "Episode I" what was wrong with this new "Star Wars" series, despite its visual wonders: No Han Solo. The new series has no everyman, no skeptic. Who am I to relate to? Where am I up on that screen" -- Dave Arnold, Sheriden, OR in a letter to Roger Ebert. I agree completely [Via Andrew Pulrang](10:24 PM)

Carnegie Endowment - Power and Weakness: "Europe is turning away from power, or to put it a little differently, it is moving beyond power into a self-contained world of laws and rules and transnational negotiation and cooperation. It is entering a post-historical paradise of peace and relative prosperity, the realization of Kant's "Perpetual Peace." The United States, meanwhile, remains mired in history, exercising power in the anarchic Hobbesian world where international laws and rules are unreliable and where true security and the defense and promotion of a liberal order still depend on the possession and use of military might. That is why on major strategic and international questions today, Americans are from Mars and Europeans are from Venus: They agree on little and understand one another less and less."(10:03 PM)

Scientists Develop the Universe's Baby Pictures. Where can I find these pictures on the web?(7:11 PM)

Fighting to Live as the Towers Died(7:10 PM)

New Scientist. A sixty minute "power nap" boosts performance during the day. I've always wanted to do this. Maybe I can talk work into putting in a nap room...(7:08 PM)

Oh sweet, sweet connectivity.

We're back after a multi-day downtime. When I got home around midnight on Friday I found the cable modem not working and called Cox. They couldn't see any problems on their end and scheduled a service call for next Wednesday. Right, like I could last that long.

I called again on Saturday and got someone more helpful. He gave me some ideas to try and moved my service call to Tuesday. We got busy yesterday and everyone is sick this morning so it wasn't until tonight that I tried them and, boom, we're back on the air.

Looks like either the splitter or the wire from the splitter to my cable modem went bad. When I moved the modem to the Kitchen drop it came up just fine. I'll do a test to see if it's the splitter or the wire and then work on this from there. But I'm getting much better reception in the bedroom with the wireless hub in the kitchen now so it's going to stay there rather than return to the basement.(6:52 PM)
