- I'm finally getting around to watching Battlestar Galactica Season One. Why did I wait so long, when knew that I loved the mini-series? This show is awesome! Here's the blog of BG director Ron Moore, and here is the blog of another BG fan. Here's BG dot com. Here's a fansite and here's another one.

- Looks like Wikipedia is caving in to The Man. Excerpt: Wikipedia will now require users to register before they can create articles, Jimmy Wales, founder of the St. Petersburg, Florida-based Web site, said Monday. People who modify existing articles will still be able to do so without registering.
- Attention WWII buffs: Getting your 28th Keystone mixed up with your 29th Blue & Gray? Here's a quite comprehensive, detailed chart of all the U.S. Army's divisions, throughout WWII and beyond.
- I started listening to the audiobook of Christopher Moore's The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror on the way to work the other day. I read his earlier book, Fluke, Or, I Know Why the Caged Whale Sings a few years ago and I liked it pretty well. It was about this conspiracy by the U.S. Navy involving these aliens and there were these whales that were actually vehicles driven by these smaller, talking whales, and sometimes people got involved romantically with the talking whales and one of them was (SPOILERS!!) Amelia Earhardt's daughter (granddaughter?) and Amelia Earhardt herself was still alive deep beneath the ocean. It makes more sense when Moore explains it. Here's the blog of Christopher Moore.
