I need a tropical-weight suit jacket or sports coat

Rumours are that the FRA (Swedish NSA) will be scanning voice and text for “suspicious” words during the Iraq conference here

One knows one’s arrived when someone posts long, stilting posts about unsubscribing from one’s blog: http://snurl.com/2afen

heh, the “Hummer more ecofriendly than a Prius” meme still going strong in places. However with gas @ $4/gallon, money talks, bullshit walks

Sweden is buggered in Eurovision, can’t help but think if Pirelli didn’t look so much like a space alien we’d have done better

Eurovision: Russia Resurgent. Expect a mini-Olympic charm offensive when they host the competition next year

I fail to see the appeal of a skinny Russian dude, but obviously I’m not a teenage eastern european girl.

the weather was great this morning, going down to the dank fetid cellar that is my workplace sucked

I feel a bit bad for not waking Leo for the CL penalties yesterday. Will make it up to him with a can of Coke

the Debian open-ssl fiasco is sure showing some faultlines between the Debian and (Open)BSD cultures
