Imagine If 2 Cats Did This To You Everyday

If you've ever owned a cat...

I have 2 cats, and though I never have to suffer these vagaries, my wife sometimes does. She does dutifully get up and feed them before the baseball bat comes out though :).

Google Sky

If any of you have read Asimov's Foundation series, you know about the system that they had for creating a 3D map of space. They'd use it for plotting their way through stars. You could look at the galaxy in 3D and translate yourself to any other point in the galaxy to see how it would look like from there.

Well version 0.1 of that tool is out :D. You can now use Google Earth 4.2 to roam around in space. Check out this video for an how-to:

A New Take On Research

I read Jabberwock quite often and sometimes, like this time :D, Jai comes up with some very funny articles.

Here are just a couple of excerpts from just the comments:

Sir Arthur C. Clarke Passes Away

I read it just now on BBC News, and it saddens me to no end to know this.

The grand old man of SF, Sir Arthur C. Clarke, died at 0130 hrs (SL time) after a cardio-respiratory attack.

His many books have given me great pleasure over the years, and it is horrible to know that no more will ever be written.

May he rest in peace.
