Errata, and such

Apparently in a recent entry I misspoke.

There are no Kodiak grizzlies in Yosemite. They only live on Kodiak Island, Alaska.

In my defense, I never said there were. I may have assumed it, or implied it, but technically I wasn't WRONG. We could import them for the project.

Oooh. Now THERE's an idea. Transplant a bunch of them to the park! They're big, they're mean, and they'll put the "not" back in "do not feed the bears."

And for those of you ecologists who oppose the plan on grounds that we shouldn't be messing with Nature, I put it to you that we're the ones who chased those big, old dangerous bears off the continent in primeval times, so it's up to us to reintroduce them to the mainland.

In other news, the buffer touched 43 last night, which is a new high point for me. I suspect that's as high as it'll be for months, though, because travel and trade-show season is starting for me in the middle of next week. Sadly, even with all the globetrotting I'll be doing, I'm not going to get to go to Kodiak, Alaska.

We don't have to transplant the bears. We just need to get them to run Linux.
