This is just plain creepy

A spider captures and eats a bird. Urk. I just had a William Shatner flashback.

Sad news

I noticed the awful news about Dean Barnett's death just minutes after Bill Kristol posted it over at the Weekly Standard. While it might sound strange to say, since I never had the opportunity to meet him, I will miss Dean. A lot. He was funny, insightful and full of life, notwithstanding- or maybe because of- the lifelong illness which finally claimed his life.

Go here to read some tributes to Dean from his friends and colleagues. Go here to purchase and read a funny and inspiring book: "The Plucky Smart Kid with the Fatal Disease: A Life with Cystic Fibrosis". And go here to give money to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, if you're so inclined.

Ever have one of those days?

Yeah, it's a repost. Sue me.

My 15 seconds are about over

Sure, most people get 15 minutes, but this is me we're talking about. Anyway, it's time to break out the following quote based on this post from Dave In Texas:


Physics Geek: The new pool ranking's here! The new pool ranking's here!

Dave In Texas: Boy, I wish I could get that excited about nothing.

Physics Geek: Nothing? Are you kidding? First Place - Geek, Physics! I'm somebody now! Millions of people look at this blog every day! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity - your name on Ace of Spaces HQ - that makes people. I'm on Ace of Spaces HQ! Things are going to start happening to me now.

Of course, Dave did throw a little cold water on my soon to be short-lived fame by mentioning the aliens who are sure to take me first. On the other hand, anal probe and all, so WIN!!!!

Technical difficulties

My main email server is struggling right now. I cannot retrieve emails past September 19. Apparently, something is bogging the server down in the worst way. I will clean it off tonight, but in so doing, I'm likely to erase any emails that anyone has sent to me during the last month. In other words, don't take it personally. I really would like to respond to you, but I'm simply not able right now.

Yes, I have another email address that I could post here, but I'm not gonna do it. Wouldn't be prudent. Too many spambots, don't ya know.
