Damn Lightning
09 25th, 2003

Tried to fire up my DreamCast tonight to play a video game; it’s acting crazy. I think the recent spate of lightning is to blame. Dammit. Now what do I do with all those stupid games? Buy another DreamCast? I don’t think so…

UPDATE: It seems to be working now. I unplugged it for about a half hour and the problem is gone. Whew.


APOD has a great photo montage today of the similarity in shape between hurricane Isabel and M51, the Whirlpool Galaxy. It is eerie the way shapes repeat themselves in nature. The same spiral can be found in certain seashells, flowers and even cauliflower.

An Atlas of The Universe
09 25th, 2003

Hey, here’s a handy guide to the universe. An Atlas of The Universe starts with our near stellar neighbors like Alpha Centauri and Sirius, then proceeds to show our galaxy, the local group of galaxies, the Virgo supercluster, and finally the entire known universe. Wow, that’s a big map.
