Hey check out the post immediately below this one. It was drafted on and uploaded from my PDA. Sweeet. I used a great PalmOS utility called hblogger. Why is this important? It means that so long as I have GPRS access, I can continue to update this blog no matter where I happen to find myself. And since I travel a great deal, this is no small feat!
this is a test of my new mobile blogging system. this post was written and uploaded on my treo 600 pda using hblogger. what y’all think?

Wanna hear something weird? This is the otherworldly sound of the Huygens probe falling through the atmosphere of Titan, as “heard” by the Casini spacecraft overhead. (Unlike most of my links, this one is actually work safe.)
