Operation Cast Lead, and Hitler smiling

Israel threatens ground invasion of Gaza Saturday’s “Operation Cast Lead” was a brutal instance of collective punishment of Gaza’s 1.5 million inhabitants. It involved 64 aircraft dropping more than 100 tons of explosives, the largest Israeli operation against Gaza since 1967. The death toll includes women and children. The fatalities …

The Mysterious Update of Your Uncle Robert, the Arachnid

And now for some fascinating update-type things: For those of you who have been having problems running Desert Bridge, there now is an alternative version of the executable. I am not guaranteeing that it will work – in fact, I have no idea. But it might, and it certainly won’t …

Post-Christmas Post

Yes. I don’t have much to say right now. Christmas was fun – managed to surprise Verena with some nice presents, including two signed/personalized copies of Peter S. Beagle books. Also got some cool stuff, the best of which was a collection of Eddie Izzard DVDs. Izzard is my all-time …
