This op-ed piece in the Christian Science Monitor sums up my concerns about US foreign policy and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

I've started looking at the suggestions for vacation rentals in Europe. I'm pretty serious about spending July and August in Europe. I'd really like a place in the country. Sounds like Scandanavia is a good bet, because Internet access is important, and swimming and not being too hot is also important. Here's a site that Guan Yang from Copenhagen recommended for housing in Denmark. Looks very interesting. Other possibilities include Switzerland, and Germany.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named madonna.jpgWhen I arrived in Zurich on April 28 I had to hunt around for an Internet cafe. Found one, got a Coke Lite and a land-line, and started writing. After one of my revisions I noticed there's a comment. "That's fast," I said to myself. It's from Gregor Rothfuss. "Wanna have a beer? I live 10min away." Five minutes later Benjamin Vogt, an evangelist at Microsoft, posted "5min away, let me know if you are hooking up." A few minutes later they were both at the cafe, and we went to the old town in Zurich and had a bratwurst dinner and beer, and talked about all kinds of stuff including how amazing it was that we got together this way. Another killer app for weblogs. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Thanks to Der Shockwellenreiter for the pointer to this great Pigpen song from the Grateful Dead of the 1960s. "Hey little thing let me light your candle cause mama I'm so hard to handle." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Andrew switched to T-Mobile, so he's already Europe-friendly. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Wired: "A Cold War emergency bunker nestled in the side of a mountain will soon house one of the largest movie and music collections in the world." Permanent link to this item in the archive.
