We returned to the trail with the old quarry and hiked the full 2 miles of it. It was a beautiful, sunny, warm spring day. The tail end of the trail had a uphill section that was a little too long for comfort, but if you're comfortable you're not getting anything out of it. I really must return in a day or two with camera.
An article I wrote is up on Groklaw today. Hello, world. Some people seem to like it fine, and a few seem to be fixating on the intro PJ prepended to what I actually wrote and are busilly taking issue with that. I don't think I'll be posting any comments in the discussion; I'll just watch from over here. It's rather tension-inducing, knowing that something you wrote will be read by hundreds of thousands of people in the coming days.
