I realized I didn't post this here, and there might be a few of you that don't have me on Facebook, or didn't see it. You really should go track me down on there if you want to know what's happening.

My wife and I are having a baby. :)

She's due in April. We'll find out the gender around Thanksgiving.

It's tremendously exciting, and intimidating.

I don't even pretend to update this thing anymore, so you should probably find me on Facebook if you haven't already. I might write once in awhile, but I'm officially absolving all guilt for not doing so as of now. There! Absolved.

CARS

I find it (darkly) quite amusing that the government is encouraging people to get into car debt. Remember - you only get the CARS $ if you buy a NEW car (or lease, which is even worse) - and how many people who are driving "clunkers" can afford to pay cash for a new car? Very few, so they will be financing.

You would have thought that our dear leaders would have paid attention with what happened when we started massively lowering home loan qualification requirements and using legislature to sell houses, but I suppose it's not too surprising, since we're depending on all of the exact same economists, advisers, financial system, and lobbyists to fix the problem when they created it in the first place.

At least cars are cheaper than houses and people can live without them, so when the default waves start hitting, the damage won't be quite as bad.

Had my first Project Gutenberg e-text post-processing project posted to the main site - http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/28266 .

(Post-processing is taking the proofed text from the proofers, who take it from raw OCR to a ready text, and gluing the pages together, re-wrapping, HTMLifying, and so on)

Preserving history, one e-text at a time.

Come help us proofread - even a couple pages a day makes a difference in making these books available for centuries to come. http://www.pgdp.net/
