Its Snowing! On Mars...
Some pretty interesting news coming from NASA and their Phoenix Mars Lander. The Mars Lander has recently detected snow falling on Mars. A laser instrument designed to gather knowledge of how the atmosphere and surface interact on Mars has detected snow from clouds about 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) above the spacecraft’s landing site. Data show the snow vaporizing before reaching the...
Why Internet Security Will Remain an Afterthought →
Probably, few people will actually care about this article, even though they should, from over at InternetEvolution: Given a choice between something that does what they need, and something that does kind of what they need but has bells and whistles, people will always choose the latter. And really, why shouldn’t they? The bleak truth is that very few people are hardcore geeks. For...
Man, Alabama is tearing up Georgia like no other… To hell with Georgia?
2008 Presidential Debate: What I thought
So the debate just ended, so lets jump right in: Overall, if you asked me who won I would have to say it was a tie. Both candidates were a bit meh, but both had their moments. There wasn’t really any big blows dealt, much to my disappointment. One thing Obama said several times was along the lines of “John is right…” and he generally agreed with McCain on a lot of...

LHC Down Until Spring 2009 →
The planet Earth has an extra half-year to live. A spokesman for Cern told BBC News it was unclear at this stage when the collider could re-start operations after the lab’s regular winter shut-down - which is partly done to save money on electricity during this period of peak demand. A number of factors could affect when the lab re-opened, including prolonged cold weather. The...

Question: What do you get when you cross Manga...
Answer: Mecha Manga Bible Heroes I am not kidding. What I have here is the newest comic book coming out from JMG Comics (yea I’ve never heard of them either). So what exactly is it? Basically they take Old Testament stories, and “upgrade” them with a manga art style, most notably the mech parts of manga, and boom you have Mecha Manga Bible Heroes. Supposedly much of the...
(pic via mlb.com) So that was it. The final game at Yankee Stadium. Ever. I spent the last 8 hours in front of the TV, watching the various tributes to Yankee Stadium by ESPN and Yes, and my feelings are everywhere right now. Its not just the celebration of a building, its a celebration of Yankee history and tradition. It was great to see all the great players around for the pregame celebration...
