The BBC is reporting that Moroccan smugglers are puting tape recorders on the back of donkeys with the words “”walk”” so that the donkeys will keep moving as they smuggle goods over 200 miles of desert. The police have simply started shooting the donkeys, leading to an uproar from some quarters.]]>

Comdex next week.
Sometimes there just isn’t enough time to do all the things I want to do. I finished updating all of PenguinRadio’s European pages, but now I have to fix all of the USA States (I did California, now on to the rest).
360 pages in PenguinRadio’s regional section–all static. Time to make them dynamic so I can build them on the fly as needed.
I’m also planning on writing a Sherlock module so I can search radio stations on PenguinRadio direct from the desktop.
And this is all next week…]]>
Three mountain lion kittens got stuck on some railroad tracks after walking through a creek and then climbing on the rails in 10 degree weather. A track inspector had to pour hot water on them to free them from the rail, but then ran off when their mother showed up (i.e. big lion).]]>

And, on my way home through Dupont Circle, the aptly attired Bert and Ernie walking hand in hand. Guess the rumors are true….]]>
scanner mailing list erupted with alerts that the sky was colored at this very moment. SCAN-DC is a DC scanner mailing list that tracks things like shootings, fires, Presidential motorcades, Combat Air Patrol activities and a bunch of other stuff on the airwaves. They posted the Aurora news because a lot of the radios they were using got a bit fuzzy.
But anyway, the sky was an amazing shade of red the other night, and we had some greenish/white hues even farther to the south. It was simply amazing over the Bay, and I swear a dozen small airplanes were doing laps trying to get a better view. Not likely to see something like that again anytime soon.]]>
