I have made a few technical updates to the website. The consequences should be more stability and a better visual appearance for Internet Explorer users.
Thoughts on the John Gruber's suggested 40-40-20 split between Windows, Linux and OS X on the propagation of malware.
Its a rare month that I don't find some angry article about the problems of universities in America. If only they did X, or they implemented policy Y. I have a suspicion though, that the fault with American universities lies in a much broader social problem.

Its starting to get cold. I am wearing long underwear (thanks Mom!), and its the middle of October. The thought of the approaching winter leaves me in tears.
JET gets a bit more real as I head down to Atlanta tomorrow. This post scores a 0.85 on the 5 point "cohesiveness" scale. Yep, its that bad.

Yesterday I watched the Google TechTalk on Scaling YouTube. It was a decent talk, and I jotted down some notes while listening to it.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
Pygments 0.9 adds lexers for Common Lisp along with a handful of other languages. I am an unabashed fan.
