I love unexpected discoveries in science.

Alan Kogut of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center says he and his colleagues have discovered a mysterious "booming noise" coming from space that's six times more powerful than all other space radio sources combined.

For now, the origin of the signal remains a mystery.

"We really don't know what it is,"said team member Michael Seiffert of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

And not only has it presented astronomers with a new puzzle, it is obscuring the sought-for signal from the earliest stars.

Well, it's about time they noticed it. ;-)

Cool! My photo got published!

Last November, the Guardian UK newspaper asked Flickr users to submit photo messages for Obama in the wake of his historic election. I participated, and the Guardian selected my image for inclusion in a book they published!

The book has now been published! I have received my copy as a participant. See? There I am on page 44!
taken for the Flickr group, "A Message for Obama."

Hulu has added a buffer indicator on their video player!

For a user with a fairly slow Internet connection, this is a WONDERFUL addition. Online video tends to stutter on my machine when traffic is high. Now I can click on an episode, walk away, and when it's fully buffered, I can watch it!

Now if only Joost would do this. And South Park Studios.

Oh, incidentally, that screenshot is of "Bones," a show Nate got me hooked on while I've been bedridden.
