We saw Edwards and Dean today, I'll have pictures in the morning. In the meantime, over 800 messages accumulated in my mailbox, and my mailer is incapable of dealing with it. So if you sent me mail, I probably won't get it until tomorrow afternoon. Sorry.
A new Manila theme from Bryan Bell.
Day Two of Scripting News coverage of the New Hampshire primary campaign begins with a trip to see John Edwards at 2:15PM in Concord, and then Howard Dean at a house party at 7PM in Manchester. My first report may be online between the two events, if we can find our way back to that great Internet cafe in Manchester (and they're open). Chris Lydon is my partner for this field trip, so there may be audio, and once again I won't have to ask the questions (which is good).

Blog Graham is the weblog of Presidential hopeful Bob Graham. It's fairly awful.
Doc Searls: "We went to Mantoloking Beach almost every day, and sometimes swam in the beaches and lagoons of Kettle Creek or the Metedeconk River on Barnegat Bay. We'd go fishing and crabbing in small boats. Almost every day on the way home we'd stop at a roadside farm stand, buy tomatoes and corn, and enjoy the best suppers I remember. We'd ride our bikes to the little general store about a mile away, buy comic books and come home to read them on our bunk beds. We'd graze on blueberries, three varieties of which comprised the entire forest floor. We'd build tree houses and play hide-and-seek in the woods. Bedtime came when the whip-poor-wills started calling. We fell asleep to a cacaphony of tree frogs and crickets."

Happy wedding anniversary to Andre and Andrea. And many spicy noodles!
This morning 650 messages accumulated overnight, and my email program, Outlook Express, one which millions of people use, can't download them without crapping out. On the other end is an uspecified mail server, and inbetween is Verizon DSL. They must all be getting hammered by this week's virus. Until yesterday this setup could handle the email I'm getting. Today it took one hour to coax 650 messages out of the server, tons of duplicates, and most of them contain viruses. I'm looking for one or two vital messages in this group of 650, and there are always some people trying to contact me through email. The only logical thing to do is to give up on email. Nothing is going to make this better. In a bind.
