In a post nine eleven world...

...when you hear someone say "in a post nine eleven world," it's to preface an inane justification for over-reacting to something silly.

Scary numbers

While it's unsettling enough to consider that this site claims there are two people named Kevin Barkes in the U.S., it's downright terrifying that there are 25 Christina Aguileras and 12,279(!) Michael Jacksons. (Thanks to Maxine.)

Forget about WMD

Having learned from its mistakes in Iraq, the Bush Administration is taking no chances in the run-up with what it considers to be the inevitable conflict with Iran. Coalition operatives managed to steal a book from the desk of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Due to the lack of Farsi translators, it took a while to process the intel, but the Administration is expecting a groundswell of support when it announces the startling revelation that Ahmadinejad's favorite tome is called "To Serve Man"... and it's a cookbook!

Tuesday, January 30, 2007 is on the air...

It took most of the early morning hours, but is for the most part up and running after the new owners of finally pointed the nameservers away from my host to theirs, A big thank you to XO Communications, who switched to in just a few seconds. Propagation delay nothwithstanding, the address change went very quickly.

I still don't know who actually bought the name; the broker, Trout & Zimmer, is still listed as the administrator.

Anyway, all of the links on the main pages should work; and are functioning; and you can even get here via, if you're so inclined.

Give me a couple days to get all the deep links fixed, and if you haven't done so already, please update your bookmarks.

So there.  
The e-mail address is now something other than saga. used to be until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up and adopting created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the domain name in 1993, and had since that time used as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that was no longer but rather which is longer than and more letters to type than and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than but actually just as functional as I sent e-mails from the address to just about everybody I knew who had used in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that no longer is the they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
