This is too easy

This is really a 'they wish' (http://gop.gov), 'you get' (http://gop.org)

Here is a screen shot of the second one... just in case someone cleans up their DNS entries...

Before folks say I am totally biased... which I am... I also have to object to http://dems.gov.

I think both of these dot-gov addresses have stretched the 'meaning' of the dot-gov TLD past the breaking point. The parties are dot-org entities. The respective caucuses in the two chambers are dot-org's, too.

Shameless Plug

I had to go to the Seattle area yesterday.

I was flying on short notice, but was able to score a really cheap fare on Virgin America... About $100, round trip.

I got the usual e-mail reminder to confirm my reservation and seat assignment. I went to the site and noticed that I could upgrade to first for $50 for each segment.

I upgrade both flights...

It was worth it.

I also recommend that folks look at the Virgin America web site. I think it is very usable....

The ad for GoGo in-flight internet service was mighty cute, too. It has an animated Richard Branson. I was traveling computer-free, so I skipped it...

Freedom gets faster

I switched to Google WiFi in Mountain View, CA as my ISP nearly two years ago. The speed was decent. The selling point for me was the fact that the upload and download speeds were comparable. Oh... and FREE did not hurt either.

I have been happy with it for nearly two years... AND THEN...

It started to go faster for downloads.

I am currently getting about 1900 Kb/s download and 950 Kb/s upload. The new upload speed is double what I had been averaging. The upload speed is about 30% faster, too.

A very useful day

Every now and then, you look back at 'What did I do today?' and the answer is mighty depressing. Today was not one of those days for me.

For my accomplishments today, I:

I wish that I had been able to work a bug fix into the mix today, but that did not happen. Maybe Monday.

My 15 minutes are up...

I took part in an interview with Geertjan for JavaLobby. The interview went live earlier this morning, but now my fifteen minutes are up.

It was a rush.

I must have stolen some Aztec Gold

I hear that there was an earthquake and...

I feel nothing. Not the wind on my face nor the spray of the sea....
Nor the shaking of the ground while I drive...
