Looking for that quiet, remote and very, very, very sturdy place to call home? Try the Atlas F missile base, Adirondack Mtns, NY with features like
The original, heavy security doors are built to withstand a 2000 lb blast and are at the underground home entrance.
Huge doors open to a large tunnel that accesses the silo that has an additional 20,000 square feet of useable space with unlimited possibilities. The perfect getaway home, it has its own direct runway access, its climate controlled and is capable of withstanding a nuclear hit.

The Silo has a climate constant/approx. 58 degree earth ambient temperature. It is 52' diameter x 178' deep / 9 floor steel superstructure. Entire steel superstructure hangs from gigantic spring suspension system designed to absorb shock of a direct nuclear hit.

It's also easy to reach:
it is part of an exclusive airport subdivision on a (FAA approved) 2050' runway. (It is fully accessable by road too).
Cheap too: only 2.3 million US dollar. Found via It's WAR - lovelylisting

Just remember it is TV science. I'll save the rant about police wanting investigating powers like those on TV for a later time.

I made my own lolcat: Tender was sleeping on the couch near the laptop charger. I first tried to setup a picture but she was annoyed at my attempts to put the cable near her but 5 minutes later she went to sleep again. Recharging: 95% complete.

High level of friday afternoon in this one: Microsoft research came up with songsmith software and 'promotes' it with a very very cheesy video (notice the brand of the laptop?). Songsmith is software to add music to signing. What people started doing is taking voice tracks from existing music and letting songsmith add new music, leading to the most interesting ways to make you cringe: We Will Rock You - Queen versus Songsmith, "Beat It" by Michael Jackson, and a metal rickroll just to be sure.

Url doing the rounds: TV radar. I am really interested whether there is any UK agency to complain to about this and whether the same problem would occur with Freeview UK (DVB-T based TV). According to the theory of DVB-T it can deal with multipathing a lot better. Sounds like an ideal place to test this theory.
