I thought it was an interesting coincidence that a state with questionable presidential election results would be pummeled by hurricanes just before the next election. Then I thought it was an interesting coincidence that the storms spared Miami, who voted for Gore in 2000. Just out of curiosity, I overlaid two map: one of the tracks of the hurricanes of 2004, and one of the election results of 2000.

This is no longer an interesting coincidence. It is an unmistakable message from God. I hope everyone is listening.

Wired News: Wi-Fi Shootout in the Desert
Topic: Technology 8:14 am EDT, Aug  5, 2004

] When Meng's dad, a radio frequency engineer, looked at
] the test-run data he said, "Oh my God. They might have a
] chance at this. They might actually have to go to Las
] Vegas."
] Not without Justin's father, however. Greg Rigling drove
] them across the country in a van, with the 10-foot
] satellite dish strapped to a trailer. Then he spent two
] days driving around Nevada's mountains helping them get a
] signal.

The wifi shootout concept is kind of silly. The guy who can buy the best antenna wins, and you've got a bunch of people running around with antennas that they constructed without reading anything about antennas. It ought to be obvious that parabolic dishes are the right answer.

However, the fact that these teenagers managed to get an unamplified consumer wireless card communicating across 55 miles of desert with old C-band dishes is cool in a DIY kind of way. It means that anyone with line of sight can build a long distance wireless backbone, and cheap.

Say it Ain't So Boys

I love the Beastie Boys but I hope this is not true and/or they didn't know about it. Basically the story relates that the new BB's CD and some rumored copy protection that is really is more like malware. "Check, check, check it out!"

Anyone but Bush
Topic: Miscellaneous 2:37 pm EDT, May 10, 2004

All he has to do is stand on his record

If you don't already have reason to vote for anyone other than the incumbent, including any household appliance that might suddenly gain sentience and make a bid for the US presidency, this might help you out.

Let's See Who Collects
Topic: Miscellaneous 10:00 am EDT, May 10, 2004

ItÂ’s amazing to me how the press and establishment make these folks out to be so elite yet they keep getting busted. This guy might have had a long run but went back to the well too many times.

It will be interesting to see how many people try to cash in on the reward. It will also be interesting to see if Microsoft spends more money on bounties and marketing as opposed to actually building security into their products.
