Bush: The text adventure game - Amusing, if simultaneously thoroughly depressing.

Google will fight Bush Administration demand for search records - I should have an opinion on this, but all I can think is "that is SO not the government's business". Certainly, I cannot see what rights the US government could have over searches that I, as a UK citizen, have made on google.co.uk - especially if the final destination of my search was also outside the US.

Scientists Find A DNA Change That Accounts For White Skin - very interesting article with reasonable scientific detail, despite being from a mainstream newspaper. I must get an online subscription to New Scientist.

The Grammarian's Five Daughters by Eleanor Arnason. Has been doing the rounds of my friends list - I can't think why :) I have a feeling I've read & linked to this before, but I have no problems with linking to it again.
