On a completely different note, Cory Doctorow noted a really neat link today, to a web site about skyscrapers, full of comparative charts and diagrams, and all sorts of buildings that aren't even built yet but will be. C. is moving from the 2nd tallest building in the city to the 21st tallest building. Now isn't that a bit of nicely useless knowledge!
Hmm... it's pouring, pouring rain outside now, thunder and lightning. Perhaps I won't be practicing inline skates today after all. REALLY pouring it down. As if a lake were falling on the street outside. It has an hour to calm down before Anime - and consequently being outdoors - calls.
