It’s finally official. We are legally, emotionally, officially, proud owners of a townhouse style condo. For you non-LA people, I could buy a 5 bedroom estate in Anchorage, Alaska for what we’re paying. Heck, I could buy a 5 bedroom house in Seattle or Portland.Read More
LSD use is way down in recent years, according to arrest records, hospital records, and surveys with high schoolers. Slate looked into it, and came up with two reasons why. First and foremost, the DEA busted a couple of guys in rural Kansas back in 2000, who supplied 95 percent of the country’s acid. The other reason is the breakup of the Grateful Dead.
“The LSD market took an earlier blow in 1995, when Grateful Dead frontman Jerry Garcia died and the band stopped touring. For 30 years, Dead tours were essential in keeping many LSD users and dealers connected, a correlation confirmed by the DEA in a divisional field assessment from the mid-‘90s. The spring following Garcia’s death (the season the MTF surveys are administered), annual LSD use among 12th-graders peaked at 8.8 percent and began their slide. Phish picked up part of the Dead’s fan base—and presumably vestiges of the LSD delivery system. At the end of 2000, Phish stopped touring as well, and perhaps not coincidentally, the MTF numbers for LSD began to plummet.”
I don’t know if you caught Saturday Night Live this weekend, but the Donald was hosting. He was a bombastic, self aggrandizing, braggart in true Trump fashion. For some reason, it just works for him.Read More

Now I’m every bit as much the bleeding heart liberal as the guy to my left, but I have to say that I believe the outcry against offshoring and outsourcing is purely a reactionary response to the current bad economy. I don’t believe that opposition to outsourcing is not based in sound economic principal nor is good for the country in the long run.Read More
The search company launches Gmail, an e-mail service with so much free storage that users will never have to delete messages, it claims.
For the past few months I’ve been teaching myself Longhorn programming via the PDC bits by building a better Spam filter. Some of the best filters will typically use an approach based on Bayesian probability modeling. For example, in this article Paul Graham discusses an improved algorithm for filtering spamRead More
