Want to help post stories on to Send me mail or comment here or get me on IRC or AIM or something.

Basically, I want people to help handle the submission queue in a timely manner. Also, it would be nice if we could post a lot more user group meeting notices, although that sort of thing never works so I am not optimistic.

I've made all the feeds on provide Atom as an alternative. If you have a feed, look for "rss" in the string and change it to "atom". It should work. Let me know any problems you find.

I had to take my (music) keyboard out of my suitcase because they will not allow bags over 50 pounds on the train, period.

And they charged $5 extra to check my guitar, for "special handling." I guess it is "special handling" to not throw my bags around.

And the train was a half-hour late.

And it had engine trouble when it got here.

And the movie playing is "Beauty Shop."

I'll be at OSCON soon ...

"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt."
