If today gets any more surreal, I’m going to scream.
Although I’m not hip on getting an XBox 360 immediately (I want to wait and see with this one, and the games aren’t that compelling to me), this Google Maps remix of where inventory resides nearby is pretty cool.
I was doing some walking last night and watched Stargate Atlantis off netflix. Hey, you know – it was science fiction, and it gives me something to do while I’m walking. As far as episodic science fiction goes, well – it’s really not very good. Of course I’m comparing it to Firefly… But that justContinue reading “Stargate Atlantis, not so good.”

With the pics from Crater Lake up there now, I’m reminded of something that I felt I needed to share for my own future embarrasment and reference.
