Also, page 73 has an important, often overlooked rule: you must stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk. Not only is it polite, but it's the friggin' law. I've seen Portland Police smal on the brakes to stop half way through the crosswalk while there are people in it. Pay attention and driving will be safer and easier.
I did a research paper on the NIF in college freshman year and was so excited to think it might be done soon. I think it was originally scheduled to test by 2004. Well, that's been pushed back to 2010. The budget has increased about 8-fold, and many politicians seem upset over this. I however, would like to see it come to fruition at any cost. The scientific benefits of having this working are unknown in full. It's too valuable, so you politicians out there... mind your own business.

* Got it to work. Didn't really do anything. Actually, I can't remember if it was broken on my desktop or laptop. Here's a user script to add a delete button to gmail. Neat stuff.

It's good to hear from Dave, as all those rumors were pretty stupid. $50million/2yr contract is pretty stressful, but his frustrations with the direction of the show would be more of a reason to take a break. Sounds like Dave is quite sane.

I read an interview with Sir Penrose tonight and it was quite interesting. His interpretation of, not sure how you'd put them... viewings or states in the quantum world seemed to be quite simple. He seems to have always been worried on how gravity is left out of most quantum theories. I don't remember which magazine had the interview but it was cool. Go find it yourself!
I was pretty psyched to try out this app to help verify Riemann Zeta zeros but I never did get it working properly. Hopefully they'll improve the installation. Grid computing is pretty badass anyway.
