My 30th birthday is coming up on the 17th, and that means that I'll probably be hearing the inevitable question:
A review of Apple's new iBook laptop computer, as well as a few observations on its OS X operating system.
Nuketown's long hiatus is over. Originally, the hiatus was supposed to end in September, and did in a way. After the atrocities of September 11, I focused on writing about the attacks, and pretty much ignored the nuts and bolts of the site.
Over the last month I've spent a lot of time working on Nuketowns guts, and as a result, the database is finally working the way it's supposed to, automatically building the home page based on the current date. The "index" pages are almost done, and Im working on display options thatll let people sort through the database in all sorts of cool and froody ways.
Notes from the Nuff about Apple's OS 10.1 operating system, Wired's X-Box feature, Yahoo Internet Life's Lord of the Ring's lowdown, and MacAddict's December Mac-fest.
Quick reviews of Wired magazine, Robert Heinlein's *The Moon is a Harsh Mistress*, Mercury Rising, and more.
A variety of articles and columns reacting to the twin attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. Includes "hawkish" stories about attacking terrorists and countries that harbor them, more cautious articles about restrained responses, and essays on the importance of preserving liberty in the face of war.
A terrible tragedy befell America on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001. Let's not make it worse by stripping away the freedoms that make this country great in a vain effort to achieve security.

In a few places around the country, gas prices have shot through the roof, in large part because of rumors that gas prices were shooting through the roof. Folks are scrambling to get gas, drastically increasing the demand for a product that is in limited (if re-fuelable) supply. Some folks are decrying this as profiteering, declaring it to be immoral. Some folks are decrying this as profiteering, declaring it to be immoral. No folks, it isn't immoral -- it's capitalism, and this is how we keep the supplies flowing! This is how we ensure -- without government intervention -- that folks have a chance to buy gas. It is a transaction between two free-willed individuals, without the threat of force. It is the essence of morality.
