Somewhere outside Amarillo.. Nice driving.. Texas is very aesthetically pleasing. Very "bad ass"..

The most 'bad ass' part of the trip
Topic: Travel 7:36 pm EDT, Jul 15, 2003

I'm about to enter into Texas.

Nothing to report.. Really, nothing. Not a god damned thing. I'm bored as hell.

Just for kicks, here is a list of essids spotted between Nashville and here:

Over the Mississippi
Topic: Travel 3:17 am EDT, Jul 15, 2003

Nashville was a nice break.. Good seeing Dagmar, and I _really_ needed all that coffee. :)

Somewhere in Arkansas right now. Stopping to burn some new CDs, gas up, and stuff my face with some truckstop hotdogs..

I will be meeting up with Dagmar shortly..

Flying J Travel Plazas, now with Wifi
Topic: Travel 7:18 am EDT, Jul 14, 2003

I'm blogging from somewhere around Wytheville, VA thanks to FlyingJ's new Wifi service. I have a power inverter, so I've just been leaving my laptop on running MacStumbler. Its a great way to catch truck stops with net access.. You get about as much notice as with a really tall sign.

$1 for 15 min, $1.95 for an hour, $4.95 a day, etc.. Not too bad.

Making lousy time.. After I was about an hour away from where I was staying in Jersey, I had to turn around because I realized I forgot my glasses.. Couldn't find my tape adapter either, no mp3s in car.. Doh!

Topic: Travel 6:22 pm EDT, Jul 13, 2003

I'm leaving Jersey in a few hours. I should be hitting Cali sometime around next weekend.

I still have not decided what I'm going to see on the way out.. I'll figure it all out on the fly. | Advertising | Hong Kong in hot flush over ad blunder

North Korea Is Dark
Topic: Travel 7:26 pm EST, Mar 26, 2003

] This amazing image is included in the standard US
] Department of Defense briefings on North Korea. It was
] mentioned in a news briefing on 23 December 2002 by
] Defense Secretary Rumsfeld, who stated that "If you look
] at a picture from the sky of the Korean Peninsula at
] night, South Korea is filled with lights and energy and
] vitality and a booming economy; North Korea is dark."

I've been looking for a good link to meme this image for awhile. It's a satellite view of the night-time landscape in eastern Asia, including Japan on the right, and the Chinese coast on the left. In the middle is the Korean peninsula. What's remarkable is to see how lit up the southern part of the peninsula is, and how completely dark that the North Korea part of the peninsula is. It's a dramatic indicator of the differing economic and technological levels between North and South.

North Korea Is Dark

The Pyongyang Metro
Topic: Travel 1:35 am EST, Mar  7, 2003

] The only point of this site is to find out as much as
] possible about a North Korean military nuclear
] installation disguised as a subway.

Explore North Korea. See the communist murals and the "extras" that hang around when visitors are present. Listen to North Korean muisc. Check out the fallout shelter. Wonder at the futility of it all...

HootersAir - We loves us some flying, and it be showing like a mofo
Topic: Travel 11:32 pm EST, Mar  6, 2003

HootersAir. Damn.. Why?

I could take them to Interz0ne for $189 according to their page. ... I don't think so.

[U: "The same great Flight Crews plus two Hooters Girls provided by Hooters of America Restaurants." No. Not good enough. They need to be flying the plane, working the ground crew, and the ticket counter. Then I'll fly them. ]
