I'm a little late on posting this, but today at around 3PM PST the Boeing built Measat satellite will be launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome. The satellite will provide communications to a large swath of the asian continent. The launch will be televised via the entarwebs today. Check the countdown clock at the bottom of the page for the link to the webcast. They've got video links for both 56k and broadband. Check it out if you're feeling like it. I didn't work this project, but I have been within touching distance of this sucker and it's gonna be in space soon. Too cool!
Update: Well it's about 15 minutes after launch and all is well at this point. Here's to continued success on this launch. Go Proton! Go Breeze-M! Go Measat-3! Go Boeing!

I Don't Know What I Was Thinking
So as you can see in this picture a whole BUCKET full, yes a copper bucket, of cheese arrived at the house today from iGourmet. They had a deal on flat rate shipping regardless of how much you ordered. Basically they dared me and since it was cheese I took their dare. I'm not sure how we're going to get through all this cheese, but one thing is for sure. After we do get through it all we'll be bound up tighter than... than... than I don't know what, but really bound up. So if we come by your house in the next couple of weeks you can pretty much expect us to be bringing some cheese.
In case you can't count that's eleven(11) different cheeses in that photo plus two bottles of extra virgin olive oil. I also forgot to include a chunk of seriously sharp cheddar from Scotland. Aye lad all this dairy'll keep the kilt a'flappin' for sure.
