  1. thunderbird plugin I suddenly want

    I’d love a thunderbird plugin (or really just a feature) that says “you were bcc’d on this email- are you sure you want to reply to all and accidentally disclose that you were bcc’d?” (And yes, of course that means I did that today- pretty sure the first time in a very long career of…

  2. Digging up my old Red Hat/e-voting posts

    The DOJ is breaking up ES&S, the country’s largest provider of voting machinery, the OSDV project seems to be gaining some attention, and RHAT stock recently hit a five-year high. This seems like as good a time as any to dig up my ‘Red Hat should be in electronic voting‘ post and followup. Take the…

  3. thankful

  6. trip pictures

    FYI for friends, etc.: I am going to continue journaling privately for post-trip publication, probably, but rather than bore entire planets worth of people in the meantime, I’m just mentioning small things on identica (with republishing to twitter and facebook) and posting pictures on my gallery install. Both of those have RSS feeds so you…

  7. 48, 48 houuuurs to goooooooo

    A picture from last weekend, spent in the not-quite-high Sierras: Krissa and Luis on the very, very, very narrow and twisty road to Edison Lake Vows are finally written, and even printed. Have not wanted to throw my computer all day, and can even breathe on an almost-normal basis. Things are looking up! :)
