Just checked my mail and found something straight out of McMansion Hell. This delightful little place will only cost you $12 million — and you get to live in Commerce City, which is even less of a garden spot than it sounds.

(Lest you wonder, I never asked to receive this rag; they figure that if you can manage to live in Boulder, you must be part of the market for this kind of atrocity so you get it whether you want it or not.)

I had this feeling I was being watched on my ride this morning...

Ah...Sharper Image...where would we be without you...? The "precision of a chainsaw" indeed.

I skipped out on everything last week and wandered in the southwest for a bit. Definitely recommended for reducing one's stress level.

Canyon de Chelly remains one of my favorite places in the world.

Now I have to catch up...how's the 6.5 release going, anyway? :)

I'm sorry but it's a beautiful morning and the approximately 12,423 emails sitting in my linux-kernel folder are just going to have to wait.

Daniel Ellsberg died today. Goodbye to a courageous defender of much that is good.

Here's a couple of pictures I took of him at a protest at the Nevada nuclear test site sometime in the mid 1980's.

It has been some time since I played with OsmAnd; I'm surprised by how good it has gotten in the meantime. The user interface is still a bit annoying at times, but functionally it mostly outdoes the proprietary competition at this point.

A conference room with a better view than most - the memory-management room at LSFMM+BPF in Vancouver.

Whenever I go to a suse.com web page, it always pops up this little dialog. I have no idea who "Tharp & Associates" is or why I might be concerned with what SUSE can do for them...but they keep asking anyway.

When the passport office destroys your international travel plans, you might as well go and check out some of the local wonders. This is what's left of Pueblo Bonito in Chaco Canyon, built in the years 850 to 1150.

Apologies if you were expecting email from me... Some days are just not meant to be spent at the keyboard.
