I have not logged on in what seems like ages. I apologize for that, hope someone missed me. Anyway, I have been traveling some (Kings Canyon), celebrating 10 wonderful years of marriage and dealing with some bad news. I hope to get back on a regular schedule soon. Hope all is well with you and yours.

One a seriously scary/stupid note... Bruce Schneier brings you Bad Information Security Practices. The incredible story of yet another company unable to admit it made a mistake that may cost many people (just not the policy makers) dearly. Schneier often makes some really good observations about things going on in the world of security.

The Math Forum - Ask Dr. Math looks like a great place to get answers to all those burning math questions you have. I was looking for a good explanation of hexadecimal. Jerry renewed my thirst for such things, but I still have trouble thinking in hex. The searchable archives contain a treasure trove of (usually) easy to understand answers. Enjoy!

Not sure if the catalog for Science Toys is that legitimate or not (haven't had the chance to check it out yet), but some of the experiments look cool. I don't think that rail gun will be taking out a Mad Cat anytime soon, but the idea is cool. The site seems to plug the catalog quite a bit, so caveat emptor (can't spell in Latin to save my life... oh who am I kidding, I can't spell in English that well either).

"I have made fire!" I bet ole tom wishes he would have seen this trick after a couple of hours with a stick and bow. A one-match-fire is easy... this is one more trick added to the no-match-fire repi.. repa... repetw... bag o' tricks. I am going to sit down with a can and try this.
