It's too damned hot.

I'd like to thank everyone for the outpouring of support that came after last night's rather…atypical entry. Much appreciated.

I moved a treadmill today. It was highly heavy. It made my forearms not work right the rest of the day-apparently, when gripping or moving or something, I used the muscles at the underside of my forearms in a manner they were unused to. So they hurt.

Prediction: by the end of the year, the treadmill will be little more than a clothes rack.

Today's Link Of The Day is SETI@Home. The SETI@Home project allows you-yes, you-the opportunity to sift through the enormous volumes of data collected by the Arecibo radio telescope in South America just by downloading a simple screensaver program. While the user's computer is inactive, the computer starts number-crunching a packet of data received by the SETI@Home website. After the data has been analyzed, the results are then sent back to the server and a new packet is received. Results of the activity are displayed on the user's monitor.
