It's not games related, but it's good to see Silicon Valley, Greenpeace co-founder say yes to nuclear, covering the change in opinion being seen on the use of nuclear power. I've always been a fan of nuclear power, even after reading all the detailed stuff on TMI and Chernobyl. If you treat this stuff as dangerous and very powerful, you should be able to run a plant safely. It doesn't even bother me that the nearby Point Beach plant is the same design as TMI. The TMI design is one of the safest in the industry. Human operators and business managers are always the danger here.

Google Tools

As a programmer, I'm probably more of a Google addict than most. I cannot live without the Google Toolbar--I use the beta version on all the PCs I inhabit. I just discovered two new toys from Google in recent days: Google Notebook, and Google Earth. The notebook is a brilliant concept. A centralized place to store "stuff"--I use this to keep track of albums and movies I want to buy. Great tool. I was playing with Google Earth last night while trying to locate Krakatoa volcano. Ironically, when I entered the coordinates, it zoomed into nothing but ocean--Krakatoa nuked itself to oblivion in 1883.
