Explore Mars · Pop on over to NASA’s Mars Re­con­nais­sance Or­biter site and grab a copy of this 20048-by-9500 Mar­tian Land­scape (that link is to a page of al­ter­na­tives, not the im­age it­self, it’s safe to fol­low). Then drop it in­to your fa­vorite photo-browsing application—the de­tail is remarkable—and go for a walk around Mars.
 
Servers In the Right Places · Ear­li­er this month I lament­ed that we didn’t have much of a pro­cess for do­nat­ing com­put­ers to projects that are do­ing good things. We seem to be mak­ing some progress on that, for ex­am­ple the T2000-tryout pro­gram seems to be run­ning a lot smoother. But that’s not al­l; for ex­am­ple, an X2100 showed up Fri­day on the doorstep of Nex­en­ta, as in GNU/So­laris. I think that this kind of thing is a com­plete no-brainer and hope that we man­age to do more of it.
