Nantucket, I applaud you!

Nantucket not only recycles most of their trash, but their landfill is actually shrinking. Click here for more.

If they can do it, so can the rest of us. Hopefully it doesn't take too long to figure that out.

The associated article is here. Looks like it's catching on.

Work update:

Finally got email/network access on Thursday. It's amazing how much more work I can get done when I don't have to drive to the library, email a document to myself, drive back to work, kick someone off their computer, just to print a page. Or, save it on their desktop to email to someone else...

I love earthquakes. But...

This? Very scary.

That's seventy-nine earthquakes (map), starting at an 8.0 (!!) and aftershocking in the 4s and 5s for days.

The biggest earthquake I've personally experienced was probably in the 5 range. I cannot imagine going through what the people in that part of the world have been going through. And this, of course, is just one of the many earthquake disasters in recent history.
