Wow, not only is the globe and mail site the only functioning site I've found (this is after looking at cbc.ca, canoe.ca, ctv.ca, nationalpostl.com), it's actually very impressive and usable, complete with drill down maps to find the results you want. Slick.
Geez, the only Canadian election website that I can find that hasn't melted is the Globe and Mail's. I'm sorry, but there is no excuse for Server Too Busy errors - did they not have enough warning?
The link below to the John Mighton article has been fixed; apologies to all that ended up at an article about Marlen Cowpland; especially William.
Very cool article about John Mighton, poet, playwright, mathematician. At the core of what I find compelling about people like Mighton is the idea of taking your life and what you do with it seriously; it's something I'm still learning how to do. To be clear, by serious I don't mean self-important; I mean finding a way to do what you want to do because you think it's important, even if other's don't see what's important or special about it (or you).
The International Herald Tribune has some seriously cool 'n useful dhtml going on. Make sure you click on the little document icons with crosses on them. It only seems to work on IE 4+ and NS6/mozilla.
Ah, the little things that make me happy. I found a little program that lets me use my DVD remote for xmms.
November's Wired content is now online, including a massive, comprehensive and excellent article on the Microsoft anti-trust trial.
"They keep talking about Santa Claus being down in the North Pole." he said. "Some people say it's not true. I got to where I do believe there's a Santa Claus."
From an interview with a man about to be executed in Texas.
It's hard to find good non-election related links these days. Here's one (Big quicktime link. Worth it.)
Mmmm, gratuitious Canadian Bashing:
Where does Toronto native Morley Safer get off beating up the Republican and Democratic party chairmen for
their cravenly deceptive fundraising tactics? On this Sunday's "60 Minutes," the Canadian citizen grills Republican Jim
Nicholson and Democrat Joe Andrew on their tacky direct-mail pieces that frighten folks out of their money. If Safer
doesn't like our political sleaze, let him go back where he came from.
