    I thought it was kidney stones again. I've been plagued with them over the years and thought they were back. For 2 weeks I'd been suffering back and shoulder pains. At first I thought it was just posture pain from spending too much time at my computer. I was between contracts and using the time to … read more

  • Rant of the Day

    I don't understand why the UK Ministry of Defence has been making a big deal about 1) flying a 3000 mile round trip to bomb Libyan targets, and 2) aborting the mission when they got there due to finding civilians in the target area.
