Things for me to do, for you to do

This is going to be a busy week. I’ve got three shelves to build (shelve = complex of shelves, not shelf); This must be done in a hailstorm of loud karaoke singing, interrupted only by actual hail storms, because, well, I live in Coon Rapids and that’s how it is; Amanda will be away all week so I will be a single parent for a while. That’s good because Huxley and I need the bonding time, but it will cut into my other activities a bit; There is preparation for the upcoming CONvergence (yes, Stephanie, I’ll get you those links very soon!); And then there is the Global Water Dancing event coming up for which I may be doing some significant non-dancing related helping.

Speaking of CONvergence, have a look at this video, which is Rebecca Watson making her big come back after a period of few or no videos.

Also, please have a look a this important blog post on software patents. (The whole blog is important, but this post is suddenly getting a lot of attention.):

Patents and copyright

The issue of software patents is difficult for most people to understand. It sometimes gets confused with copyright. So let me explain the difference between them, and why you should care about patents.

    No worries, Greg. You’ve got days yet. Besides, I know where to find you.

    For father’s day, Julia gave me lures and I gave my father-in-law and myself (on behalf of his daughter and my offspring) a set of oars. Huxley is too little.
