Winter on 125th

Winter on 125th

I was about to declare a FAIL on winter in NYC, and then I looked out the window on what had started as a warmish sunny day, and found that it is Snowing! I dare say though, that the chances of getting to crack out my snow boots are still pretty close to nil this season.

Echoes of Challenger & Columbia

In another finding, the panel reported that flight surgeons' medical opinions were not valued by higher-ups. Several senior flight surgeons told the panel that officials only wanted to hear that all medical systems ''were `go' for on-time mission completion.''

Network Neutrality starts in the...

I just got kicked out of an internet cafe called Cyber Cafe in Kolkata's Lake Town neighborhood for using the built in windows software Microsoft Remote Desktop to connect back to my computer in the states. This from a computer running XP with all updates turned off with only IE 6.

I was put on the phone with their "Engineer" who told me that if I was going to use his computers, I could only use programs on his computer.

Umm. Ok.

I decided not to argue network neutrality with him, or explain that his network was incredibly insecure, and just got my refund for Rs. 70 for the remaining 9 hours of my ten hour committment.

A pity too, as it was costing me $.20/hr to connect to the internet.

I'm going back to metered GPRS based internet access at $.0013/kb.

Good enough for email, anyways.

Isaiah Washington out of Grey's Anatomy

So I read this while watching NETWORK, which was somewhat amusing.

But seriously, Isaiah thinks that he should get points for being shut down for bigotry?

Come on...
