Myself and La are away this weekend with some friends at a rental home in western Maryland and I just set up an ad-hoc wireless network with my PowerBook providing the wireless service and my Treo 650 with Bluetooth dial-up networking acting as the internet connection. How well did it work? Well, it wouldn’t win any speed records, but it made this blog entry possible.

This may be the dumbest news story I've ever heard of: 
Karl Rove's Garage Proves to Be Typical: Like a Lot of Folks, Karl Rove Has a Lot of Stuff Piled Up in His Garage
Key graf: “Rove's wife, Darby, raised the white garage door one morning last week to show journalists outside the million-dollar brick home that the deputy chief of staff, assistant to the president and senior adviser wasn't home. All the interest came on the eve of his testimony Friday before a grand jury investigating who in the White House might have revealed the identity of a CIA operative.” 
That's right, journalists. As in, more than one covered the fact that Karl Rove has a bicycle in his garage and a number of boxes.

Pumpkin cannons are always fun but they’re the most fun when you actually hit something with your compressed-air-powered pumpkin projectile. Last night was my moment of glory, where my skill at gunnery (or rather, the luck to find a good angle for the cannon then sticking with it) resulted in my pumpkins of destruction striking an old bus about four out of six times.  
Hey, the guys in line behind me were impressed. WHOOOSH-THWAP!
