out on the back deck of the perk; i feel bad, it probably doesn't even know i strayed. i don't think it reads my blog.

jeff miller is wafting out the door. i mean, the sounds he's making are; he does not appear to be of a form that can waft. he's rocking some phil collins. to be accurate, he WAS, not IS, because, dammit, events unfold faster than i can type! not all of them. i figure i can type fast enough to keep up with the cascadian subduction zone's advance. i mean, that juan de fuca plate ain't movin' very fast.

i've become tangential. however, you should read about the cascadian subduction zone and its "periodic giant megathrust earthquakes". ah, the headlines:

SEATTLE AND VANCOUVER INVOLVED IN GIANT MEGATHRUST!

JUAN DE FUCA PLATE (NOT SO) GENTLY SLIPS UNDER NORTH AMERICA: HOLY DE FUCA!

or something.

jeff miller is good though, perhaps you should listen him.

in creepy-cool science-news:

in three years, you won't have to listen to people talking on their cellphones. DARPA is working on technology to pick up subvocal and silent speech. i guess you'll be able to mouth words and have them spoken by computer to the other party.

interestinj.

google hack of the day /// found on boing boing.

this page takes craigslist housing postings and slaps 'em down as pins on google maps. it's a bit slow on my 133MHz pentium laptop, but i'm sure it rocks on a real computer.

i noticed this evening that i've spent 1/1000 of my life talking on my cellphone, almost exactly:

here's the calculation

had a good time on the water last night. jon rocked a pirate moment on the way back, steering the boat with his feet as he kept watch for LOG! and crabpots.

there should be more bars accessible by boat. if you live in virginia, write your congressperson or santa claus and get them to enact legislation to make such permits easier or bring presents down the chimney.

Hey Dan -- I don't know if you'll ever read this comment, but that makes it all the more worth posting.

I am none other than the Jeff Miller to whom you were referring in the beginning of the blog.

I realize that it's more than a year after the fact, but I just wanted to say thanks for the favorable review. AND...I'll be returning to the Perk in less than 2 months, if you're still in the area!
