Spent some time today writing my schema for geekbooks, as well as playing with Postgres 7.1 on OpenBSD. It's surprisingly fast on a celeron 366, which is the only spare database machine I have laying around after since my first postgres/oracle box died and my second one is holding a production database.

I've been re-reading some chapters from Doug Lea's masterful 'Concurrent Programming in Java' If you've never read it, drop everyhing; sell your house, your kids, your wife and buy this book.

I forgot what a good song 'I am the owl' is. Plastic Surgery Disasters is easily my favorite DK album.
