Be Vewy Vewy Qwiet, We're Hunting Homes Edition

Top Story

  • I've found the home I want, it's well within my price range, and most importantly given the situation in eastern Australia right now, it's 3000 feet above sea level.

    Only thing I'm concerned about is noise since it's close to the center of town and not off on a quiet side street.  But it's old solid brick construction (13' ceilings and all that) and it's not going to be anything like where I am right now where neighbours' cars drive in and out directly outside my bedroom window.


  • The NSF is going to be funding open source projects.  (OpenSource)

    Just $21 million, but given that some critical pieces of software used by basically the entire internet are maintained by some guy in his spare time, some carefully allocated cash could go a long way.

    I expect most of this to go straight down the drain.

1 "If the EPA complains, drop rocks on their heads."
It's too bad he wants to go to Mars and not the Moon, because it removes the potential for the headline "Loonies threaten to throw rice!"

3 Pretty sure ol' Elon is going to the Moon.  I mean, Mars might be the goal, but it seems pretty obvious he's going to the Moon.

Also, shock news from 1933!  Politicians don't want you to call them bad names and they're happy to claim they're Doing The Right Thingâ„¢ when they pass legislation banning calling them bad names.  (Hint:  it's for the children (spoiler alert: it's not))

4 Fingers crossed for your move (slightly cramped fingers, thanks to my own move-in-progress, but...).The day my next-door neighbor's son got a job that required him to leave for work at 5:30 AM 6 days a week, in his extra-loud muscle car (approximately 25 feet from my bedroom window), was the day I started packing. But the 1:30 AM live Mexican polka concert a few houses down the street was definitely the last straw.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
