    EX-traffic, Bacule. Try Stevie's later stuff...

    Murakami, what can I say? I am a person of eclectic and varied tastes. :-) GEB and Metamagical Themas are two of my favorite books, though I have others. The shoes, well, because I guess I have a streak of vanity, as well as an appreciation of innovation and quality engineering, whether it be in my toys, my associates, or my shoes.

    GEB is one those books that I have been reading and re-reading over the past 20 years. It still gives me lots of stuff to think about. I would also recommend Stephen Wolfram's A New Kind of Science.

    Italians may not be able to keep a government solvent for more than 4 months, but they are damn fine engineers and designers when it comes aquaducts, cars and shoes.

    Yes, it certainly wasn't a put down by any means. I have a weird idiosyncrasy of hearing people's names/handles and songs starting in my head. For you, it's Rocket Queen. When mfreeck sets her IRC nick to freek-away I start hearing Trip Away by Jane's Addiction except with the words changed to Freek Away...

    I have issues. :D

    Thanks Chris! I think I am flattered. FYI, I got the handle when I was a wannabee aerospace student. It stuck and I was just too lazy to change it.
