End of the Routemaster
Wind farms etc...

Just got a flyer for this through my letterbox this morning. Not sure what to do as it is beginning to look like the whole windfarm thing is a bit of a racket, really. They do look nice though.

William Shatner sings Pulp's Common People. Or speaks it anyway.
Lookout V1.2. This is quite good. Much better than Outlook 2003's woeful search facility anyway...
I'd like to think this is true:

'NEWSWEEK reports that President Bush, appearing before a right-to-life rally in Tampa, Florida, on June 17,'04, stated: "We must always remember that all human beings begin life as a feces. A Feces is a living being in the eyes of God, who has endowed that feces with all of the rights and God- given blessings of any other human being." The audience listened in disbelief as the President repeated his error at least a dozen times, before realizing that he had used the word 'feces" when he meant to say "fetus."  '

One think always puzzled me about Stephen Hawking Is he a genius whose work will go down in history (e.g. like Bohr, Heisinger, Einsten, Schroeder etc) or is he just one of a thousand or so leading contemporary theoretical physicists who happens to go round in a wheel chair?

Hopefully going to get the OK to donate a load of our (ie my work's) older kit to these guys. All seems very worthwhile - and they promote open source!

Hubble discovers 100 new planets

How cool is this? I'm amazed it's not bigger news as the implications are pretty stupendous ie "The discovery will lend support to the idea that almost every sunlike star in our galaxy, and probably the Universe, is accompanied by planets."
