You never know what you might find.
I haven’t done a lot of blogging lately. … Well, that’s not entirely true. I’ve been doing plenty of micro-blogging (facebook and twitter). In the meantime, all sorts of interesting things have happened.
- The first rocky exoplanet has been discovered. It circles closer to its parent star than Mercury (meaning it’s more like a hellish prison planet than a gardeon of eden), but has roughly the same density as the Earth. Good signs for better discoveries in the future.
- Google has been doing a number of “unexplained phenomenon doodles“, leading many people to believe that we’ve made first contact with Aliens (because, hey – of course Google would know first, right?)
- Apple just released something blah blah ipod whoever cares…
- I just released a new version of Shisensho and actually got a really nice comment from someone! score.
- My son, Alex just turned 13! Holy crap, i’m the parent of a teenager now. For his birthday, we built him a greenhouse.
But the best thing was this xkcd comic i ran across a while back:
I had this great idea for a Dilbert comic the other day. I was reading an article that was discussing how a lot of the jobs in the US that have been outsourced to India how now been sub-outsourced to other countries. So my Dilbert idea was that the boss assigns Dilbert a project, they outsource it to India, who outsources it to Elbonia, who in turn outsources it to Dilbert’s company.I’ve emailed Scott Adams. We’ll see if it gets published Update (10 Nov 2007):
Well, after doing a bit of research, it turns out that there was a set of comic strips that dealt with outsourcing coming back to the office. It’s kind of sort of what i was thinking, but not exactly. However, since it’s probably the closest that will ever be done to my idea i’ve posted the comic strip here:

|A month or so ago I was going through old stuff that had been sitting in boxes for years (so I could either toss it or pack it away permanently in the attic or get it out), and ran across a folder from my mission. It contained (among other things) a series of comic strips by one of the other missionaries I served with (we were never companions, but were in the same district for a while). I scanned them all in and have posted them here.|
