Still kind of sick

And is it hot in here or what. It's 83 degrees inside because the air conditioner isn't working properley and the landlord is a little slow to do maintenance work, which of course isn't helping my cold much. Oh well. I'm off to work in a little bit, and have an interview with a company called Vector tomorrow at 12, hopefully I'll feel well enough to make a good impression.

The Carnival of Computing

After hosting the Carnival of the Capitalists (always a pleasure, and always something I look forward to), it's high time I re-re-started the Carnival of Computing. I lost contact of many of those who hoped to host the Carnival of Computing, but if any of you wish to help me, I have more than 200 articles that need to be brought to a wider public.

Check back at Anyletter later this week for this semi-milestone.

Carnival of the Capitalists

It must be Monday again, and that means a new installment of the Carnival of the Capitalists. I'm sorry if this reads a lot like a cut and paste job, but I've been down with a touch of Bronchitis since Friday. What isn't important is how well I summarized these posts but that they exist for your reading pleasure and edification. Go on and take a look. Since I'm posting this Sunday afternoon, I'll check throughout the evening for any stragglers and add them tonight. Have a great week.
