I spoke too soon. Apparently I’m going to be giving lab meeting on Thursday, which means that most of the stuff that’s backed up due to the hiatus is going to stay backed up for the next couple more days. Sorry…

Here’s one link that should keep you busy for quite a while: Neal Stephenson’s ‘hacker tourist’ opus from Wired: Mother Earth Mother Board. While on break, I started re-reading Cryptonomicon. It’s holding up well; Stephenson’s prose is still able to send shivers down my spine. Highly, higly recommended, but you already knew that, didn’t you?
