The discussion about TPA and TPP seems to have been dominated by paranoid kooks.

Windows programmers: what is so hard about writing comprehensible button labels? Is it that painful to create a dialog box where I don't have to squint at your mangled English to figure out what the buttons do? If a button is going to restart my damned computer, label it Restart. It really is that easy.

The Windows UX guide encourages the use of links rather than labels for disparate tasks grouped in a single window. http://weblogs.asp.net/blogs/kennykerr/vista/admin.png

Fibonacci does other things than just the golden ratio. You can obviously use it to expand powers of a binomial expression, but it's also useful in other areas. Here's an example where it's used to manage data structures: http://goo.gl/6s7ENh (see the section on "Rebalancing") or http://goo.gl/jUKuv (see the section on releasing relationships)

I got about a quarter of the way around before I stopped getting the jokes. Looks like the Patriots are the team for me...

An interesting take on Kagan's dissent in Arizona Free Enterprise Club's Freedom PAC v. Bennett.

On the plus side, the pizza is simple but good, and they've got a large menu and friendly staff. They put way too much cheese on some sandwiches.
