hey thanks. a 4 week old child makes it much harder to spend time online. at least he is learning to sleep at night. i can't wait to get back into a regular routine. <br><br>in the meantime...our house was hit by lightening this week. damage on exterior (mostly siding) and many appliances/tv's/furnace/ethernet ports -- logic boards on the computers, etc. major hassle.<br><br>get good surge protectors and also protect your phone modem and/or your ethernet ports. my cable modem was fried as it wasn't plugged into the surge protector. fortunately, at&t has already replaced it. the computers won't be ready until next week. fortunately, the computers work fine beyond the ethernet issue. did i mention it was a hassle.<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
That sounds horrible! Good luck with replacing all the fried stuff. Will insurance cover it or is it "an act of God"?<br><br>I missed the news of the new baby too--congratulations!<br><br>And that's true too.--Shakespeare, King Lear

insurance is taking care of things...thank gosh. $250 deductable, but we will far surpass that. computers ended up costing over $2000. wow! the side and roof of our house will far exceed this. i guess we are getting back money we have paid to the insurance company over the years. and to think, i would have been perfectly happy having that money merely buy me peace of mind. oh well. i am getting some new things out of this (2 t.v.'s, and possibly having the b&w g3 replaced instead of repaired). that certainly eases my mind a bit.<br><br>cheers!<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>

John Siracusa's excellent X 10.1 review has now been available as a PDF for about a week now.<br><br>http://arstechnica.infopop.net/OpenTopic/page?a=frm&s=50009562&f=5850957912<br><br>And if physics geeks like Zac4Mac are lurking Geon's "Nanotechnology and Quantum Mechanics" is also available at the same URL (subscriptor Ars membership required).<br><br>Life is good, except that I'm still trying to make sense out of Apple Computer's poster boy Richard Feynman's Quantum Electrodynamics, let alone venturing into his parallel computing and nanotechnology ideas from the 1950's that various CalTech and M.I.T. geeks are getting close to making a reality in the early dawn of the 21st century.<br><br><br><br>
