    Mozilla CEO pressured to resign

    Accident?? In front of San Souci

    I was in the traffic, but didn't see anything. The emergency vehicles were leaving as I got to the intersection. I did run over a piece of red plastic though...probably from a motorcycle fairing.

    light bulbs

    If I build a new house, I'm going to have it wired with DC voltage (probably 5V and 12V) throughout the house. Having DC available will make using LEDs cheaper and more efficient. It's also more useful for other electronics like computers and cell phones.

    An Incredible Victory

    Really? The Constitution says to only have a vote if everyone knows the bill will pass? Or maybe it says not to have a vote if you know the other house/president won't pass it? I must have missed that part.

    An Incredible Victory

    But it is amazing that Republicans get blamed for not being willing to compromise. The reality was: House passes budget, Senate says NO House passes another budget moving their stance, Senate says NO House passes another budget moving their stance, Senate says NO House passes another budget...
