Never underestimate the glorious feeling of sleeping through the night.

On the other hand, I woke up to some small pain in the kidney, meaning the damn thing is stuck again. Not terrible yet, though, so there's still hope. interesting to note that I was so tensed up and in pain for a while there that all my chest and abdominal muscles were sore. Deep breaths and hiccups were uncomfortable. Man, talk about unforeseen connections...

*sigh* Hollywood is remaking The A-Team. And Clash of the Titans.

It's not that they can't do a better job with effects. And it's not like they can't improve on Harry Hamlin's acting (face it a dead dog could improve on that). It's just the principle of the thing, as well as one more mark in the "seriously, you don't have any better ideas and scripts than remakes of 60's/70's/80's TV shows/movies?" column.

Internet Maturity

40 years after the first pair of computers were linked on the prototype of the 'Net, history is made again. The US government has relaxed its control over how the internet is run. It has signed a four-page "affirmation of commitments" with the net regulator ICANN, giving the body autonomy for the first time. ICANN was set up by the US government, and has always reported to the US. ICANN's reviews will now be available to be turned over to a global community, instead of just the US government.

Impressive. I never thought the US would give up ICANN's control, but there really was no choice, if it was to stay relevant. Good job.
