Back to France
We have moved to France. As expected, the weather here in November is rather cold and rainy. On the other hand, there's the cheese. And various other food specialties that you will not find in Redondo Beach !.
- WiFi is not legal without an authorisation issued by the government...
- November is the strike season; check the French news, and you'll find that there is always someone on strike somewhere.

I've added several goodies to this site:
Shopping Frenzy ?
Amazon has a new feature called the Gold Box : 5 time-limited special offers every day. It's cute, but the "Gold" branding does not really match the type of items that are offered in this box... It's more like a yard sale than a treasure.

NASA's Blue Marble has an amazing collection of pictures. The new images section is worth checking everyday, as you would also APOD and perhaps OSEI.

Reviewuate Medireview History ?
I'm pretty sure you've heard about Yahoo's incredibly amateurish approach to protecting Yahoo! Mail users from malicious scripts. It's an old story, but for some reason it resurfaced in NTK this week.
A test today showed that the filtering now inserts _ (underscore) in front of the forbidden words, instead of "rewriting" them. I have no idea when the change took place.
