It's not the honors and the prizes and the fancy outsides of life which ultimately nourish our souls. It's the knowing that we can be trusted, that we never have to fear the truth, that the bedrock of our very being is good stuff.

Fred Rogers (of Mr. Rogers Neigborhood) died Thursday of stomach cancer.

We occasionally use a chat program here at work, so I have one running all the time. I might not respond immediately (even if you see me on the NPCam). You can contact me on any of the following servcies with the given username. (I use Trillian for my chat program which chats on all the networks simultaneously.)

Clever the way I changed my screen name around there, huh? If you want to chat, make sure you tell me who you are if the screen name isn't obvious. Otherwise, I might assume you are advertising enlargement of some kind.

Threedegrees looks pretty cool. (And it's by Microsoft, believe it or not.) The fact that it only works on WindowsXP is a showstopper, though. I'm guessing there will be a knock-off anyway. It doesn't look like rocket science to me.

Whining hasn't worked: Let's buy the votes! Turkey agrees to let U.S. troop deployment for $15 billion.

MapInfo's MapXtreme shreds on Traumatic Brain Injuries across the US. It's EXTREME!

(It doesn't appear as if the State Injury maps work. And they're using the one of the worst possible projections (Mercator?!) for the U.S. map. And it's slow. Have I mentioned that I still hold some MapInfo stock? And that it's at just over $3.00 right now?)

Speeches of Former Rep. James Traficant

We have got hospitals slicing and dicing American people like Freddie Kruger, and Congress is passing more gun laws. Beam me up. There is something wrong in America when one is 80 times more likely to be killed by a doctor than Smith & Wesson. Think about it, 80 to 1. Maybe we need a gun in surgery.
