Listen Up

There's some really good music here:

The Best Songs You Didn't Hear 2005

Go read, download, and listen.

(Personally, I'm proud of myself this year for finding some of these tracks before they went on Sam's cd.)

Feeling Lucky Today?

The lords of physics have granted us some time to live:

How likely is a Doomsday Catastrophe?
Tegmark, M. and Bostrom, M.
(a pdf)

The highlight:

"Life on our planet is highly unlikely to be destroyed by an exogenous catastrophe during the next billion years".


I guess maybe my retirement plan will reach maturity after all.

What a beautiful Day

Of course, I'm sitting inside at my computer so it's not pretty here, but outside right now it is snowing so perfectly. It's just beginning to get dark now, and I just love this time of day when it's snowing. Everything is just so peaceful outside.

In fact, it does make me enjoy my work alot more knowing that it's so pretty outside right now. I can't wait to get home and see the woods behind our house. Well, it will be dark when I get home, but I'll get to see them tomorrow morning.

Now, to work on a plan to have it snow while it's 80 degrees outside.
