Sql Hell

I’ve been in SQL hell for the past two days. Quite a lot of suck.

I start using Google Adsense on the blog

I found a format I like. It’s the one above.

Any thoughts?

Interesting

Jose Padilla is being charged with actual crimes, and not as an enemy combatant. This is a good thing I think. American citizenship does and should draw a clear line on who gets charged with what.

Quick round up

  • An article from Newsweek which has some interesting stats on American feelings on abortion.
  • Saudi teacher sentenced to 750(!) lashes for blasphemy. Among other things he was charged with “defending Jews”. No one seems to have adopted him as the new Scopes.
  • Ban Asian marriages of cousins, says MP

    The report, commissioned by Ann Cryer, revealed that the Pakistani community accounted for 30 per cent of all births with recessive disorders, despite representing 3.4 per cent of the birth rate nationwide.

    “I think this should be applied to the Asian community. They must look outside the family for husbands and wives for their young people.”

    It is estimated that more than 55 per cent of British Pakistanis are married to first cousins, resulting in an increasing rate of genetic defects and high rates of infant mortality. The likelihood of unrelated couples having the same variant genes that cause recessive disorders are estimated to be 100-1. Between first cousins, the odds increase to as much as one in eight.

    55%!?

  • This is way cool.

Kind of a cool site

It’s not consistently good, but I do like the open look of MLT Creative. They’re right down the road too.
