Random Stuff

Lots of things today:

After downloading and installing all the software required (ok, just iTunes and Quicktime 6.2), I've had the chance to poke around Apple's new iTunes music store. Not a bad start, but there's certainly room to grow (try searching for some of your more obscure artists for starters). There's a series of articles at Fortune this week that covers all the details quite well.

Courtesy of the Los Lobos mailing list, a link to a recent interview with Steve Berlin about the band and setlists.

Mathematics and the Simpsons.

Saw that Chebacca is going to be in the next Star Wars movie. I really don't care, but was a little surprised that this showed up as news on Yahoo's! In The News box. What gives?

We had dinner last night at Frontera Grill (wedding anniversary, actually). Frontera's one of my all-time favorite restaurants and serve some of the best Mexican food I've ever had. We had an appitizer of goat sopes that was quite good, as were the Topolo margaritas.

Back from Iowa

Took a little trip out to Iowa over the weekend. The tenderloin at Joensy's is still huge, bigger than the plate.

Not Abandoned

Sorry, been busy elsewhere and didn't realize I had been away from he as long as I was.

Spent the last couple of days wrestling with DSL, Airport, and a router that doesn't want to play nice with the base station. Still need to research that one to figure it out.
