roadside peek, with some 'muffler men.' yeah, i was watching egg tonight ...

reuters: kenneth branagh wins shakespeare honors. i'm one of those hardcore shakespeare wonks who loved his supposedly 'endless' version of 'hamlet.' just that first shot, where you see hamlet dressed in black, saying "a little more than kin, and less than kind" got me right between the eyes.

macnn: netobjects goes out of business. gui-based editors that layer proprietary commands overtop of html, end up taking more time to learn than html itself. people are less afraid of the code nowadays.

unixreview: simply running something other than IIS is *not* a complete security strategy.
