lazy Saturday

Saturday,  01/30/10  11:29 AM

Ah, home sweet home, how nice to be lounging on a lazy Saturday...  nothing to do but a million things I want.  I'll probably do a little ride later and I do have much to catch up on after a week away (with another week away on the horizon), but for now, I have nothing to do but blog.  And so I will :)

I don't know how to take this: Obama said to seek $54B in nuclear-power loans.  On the one hand I'm a big fan of nuclear power, on the other, a big opponent of government sponsored anything.  I guess on balance I'm opposed...

Trizilla in ValenciaWOW!  An aptly titled blog post by the BMW/Oracle team, as they go onto the water in Valencia Spain with their magnificent Trimaran, preparing to challenge for the America's Cup. 

Prada w two-decker shipBut for all the majesty and power of that modern craft, today's sailing picture goes to this one, showing AC yacht Prada with a two-decker ship-rigged tallboy in the background.  What a wonderful contrast, the old, and the new, and the newest!

I so knew this: laws banning cellphones while driving have no effect.  Of course, they have increased sales of Bluetooth headsets...

Huh, Facebook announces HipHop, a PHP to C++ cross-compiler.  Interesting!

Onward, boldly into the lazy weekend :)
