Today I enhanced my moderation software so one instance of it can handle all my newsgroups, rather than separate versions with their own config files. That's handy. The interface is better too -- no longer will it spawn one window per submission and possibly flood the desktop with hundreds of bits of spam. On request, to other usenet moderators, TMBM 2.0 is now available.
Later I went to hang out at Chez Economou, and after watching a totally crazy martial arts movie (no plot, but incredible and often silly special effects), we communally played with Google Earth for about 3 hours. Yes, Google Earth, and more importantly, sattelite imagery, is just that cool. We saw a number of cities we had each lived in, then went looking for volcanoes and other landmarks. Hooray for Earthsats.
