Canadian Election · We’re hav­ing an elec­tion up here in Cana­da right now. K5 has a de­cent write-up; here­with some more, try­ing to give a fla­vor for the thing ...
 
It’s the Libraries, Stupid · Via Jeff Dil­lon, some in­sight­ful words on pro­gram­ming in Ja­va and in the C#/.NET/Mono ecosys­tem. I hadn’t thought about it that way.
 
15 Science Street · Rue de la Science to be ex­ac­t, in Brus­sel­s; a non­de­script ad­dress in the end­less sprawl of Euro­pean Union in­fras­truc­ture.

I feel some angst be­cause of my un­re­con­struct­ed white back­ground, all my coo­lio ace-pro de­sign­er heroes have ad­vanced bold­ly in­to exquisitely-pale pas­tels in one del­i­cate fla­vor or an­oth­er. Bah, less is more. A re­quest; take a look at the Serif style, it’s how I look at this thing and it’s now the de­fault for first-time vis­i­tors.
