"One of these summers the West will burn down."

Dear journal:

Fire fighters, instead of being viewed as heroes, should be called what they are: money grubbing mercenaries out to kill fires. [Forest] Fires have as much right to exist as grizzlies and wolves.

WMP in my DVD player? No thanks.

MicroS..t is trying to embrace and extend (and we know what that means) the nascent digitial home theater business. But as one independent contractor wrote:

"...Just in writing this article, my laptop running WinXP crashed twice, and I'm not willing to specify that level of unreliability into a customer's system."

Useful stuff for Perl Monks

[ #9254 ]
Those of you who use Perl Monks frequently may be interested in the the module and suite of tools I published recently. They allow you to perform various PerlMonks tasks programmatically or at the command line.

Here is a very cool "camera-less film" by the very cool Nina Paley. It is called Pandorama .

(Caution: it's a 16 megabyte Quicktime video.)

Yesterday I read in someone's blog about how the First Lady is teaming up with rock music players Satanicide to promote teen abstinence.

And don't miss WWJD!

Falls Church

It's strange, hearing the name of my little home town mentioned all over the national news. Ordinarily, Falls Church is obscured in the umbra of Washington D.C.

I wasn't too scared about the sniper thing while he was striking up in Maryland and down around Fredericksburg. I mean, it was terrible, and cause for great concern, but I didn't feel like my own life was in danger.

But... I live about a mile away from that Home Depot. I've been there many times. I drive by that shopping center every day, on my way to and from work.

Not that I'm afraid, really. Between the tiny probability of the sniper fixing me in his crosshairs, and the fact that I'm not afraid to die, there isn't much reason to be really scared.
