Nepal is on my mind. Everest, Sherpas, Kathmandu, Annapurna, Mustang, Buddhist monasteries, the occassional Maoist insurgent. Perhaps the recent media surge surrounding the 50th anniversary of Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hilary’s ascent of the mountain. Whatever. I got a longing to scrape my fingers along the sky and touch the roof of the world.
The construction on Route 4 outside my house continues to crawl along. KUAM posted a good story about the goals of the construction project. I am dismayed to hear that completion isn’t slated until November 2004 – cripes that’s still over a year away!
Blogger is giving me fits. I was willing to wait about the problem with my archives, but for the last three or four days Blogger has been down more than it has been up. I’m starting to feel like a sucker here – I can’t post anything, hell I can’t even edit my template! And I’m paying for this crappy service. At least put up a “Sorry, we’re doing some upgrades and the system is down” messages. Grrr… Movable Type is looking better and better. Hell, I might actually start posting to my Salon Radio Weblog!
