My friend Amy Domingues just sent me a copy of her new CD, called Garland of Hours. It’s her first solo effort… sounds sooooo good, and it’s so neat to hear her singing finally. Y’all be sure to buy it when it comes out, which I assume is soon. It’s on Arrest Records out of Arlington, VA.

Circus Ponies Software just slashed the price of their NoteBook software to $49.95. I still love it and use it every day, so this is all the more reason to urge y’all to try out the demo. I’m excited to find out what they’re going to do in the next (first!) update, whenever that may be.
There’s a new multi-platform distributed computing software out called d2ol… it’s similar to SETI Online, but instead of looking for little green men, it’s looking for a cure for SARS. I just downloaded the client for OS X. The site’s been slashdotted but I guess that’s a good thing, it means lots of people are interested! Dunno if this is a community-minded project — is this a drug company that’s only going to profit from the generosity of net-geeks? But I guess it’s more important to find the drug than to worry about somebody else getting rich off it.
From a story at ABCNews.com:
To build its case for war with Iraq, the Bush administration argued that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, but some officials now privately acknowledge the White House had another reason for war — a global show of American power and democracy.
They were just spoilin’ for a fight; so what if they had to lie about it?
Sorry to keep harping on this, but I wanna point out in case you didn’t notice, that even Bruce Springsteen has come out with a statement in support of the Dixie Chicks. He didn’t say anything about the war, he just said they have a right as Americans to speak their minds. He sure didn’t have to, but bless his heart for saying it. I just wish I could see a few NASHVILLE musicians follow suit, but who would? Dwight’s the only one I can think of who might actually have the balls. I have no idea about his politics, but he’s got a big enough mouth!
