WASHINGTON, May 31 — After vowing to steer a greater share of antiterrorism money to the highest-risk communities, Department of Homeland Security officials on Wednesday announced 2006 grants that slashed money for New York and Washington 40 percent, while other cities including Omaha and Louisville, Ky., got a surge of new dollars.

Homeland security officials said the grants were a result of a more sophisticated evaluation process

Ah something about relentless eating machines, ecological devastation, some painting by Michelangelo and Ragnorok.

I really didn't understand it. Sure The Bunitty eats constantly but he's a growing boy!

The Bunitty is a cross between a dust bunny and a viking kitty with a few small modifications of my own design.

Oh, that's right!

I forgot about our dust bunny contest.

You won.

*giggle* I'm going to tell my Mom. Back me up, OK?

"I vote for Europa."

Because of the technical difficulties involved in landing the Flying Castle on smaller bodies, especially icy moons, once we establish ourselves in the Asteroid Belt, we will maintain that orbit.

Smaller expeditions, such as the ones mounted on the surface of Mars, will be dispatched to the outer planet moons.

Such journeys will typically comprise two or more shuttle/thrusters and a fuel/habitat module. Depending on distances and fuel available, such expeditions can last from months to years.

Ah.. good, my general knowledge has improved again... I was worried when I didn't know which Jovian moon is which a while ago!

I read a book about Norse mythology when I was a teenager - interesting stories!

Me? High-tech? I have one 4-year-old PC folding; nothing approaching Klutz Dohanger's mega-fleet. I'm amazed that I'm so close to breaking into the top 200. Do you leave your machine folding all the time or turn it off?

"I've changed my mind. I want to stay in the castle."

Life in the Flying Castle and its connected Habitats constitutes its own little world.

Whereas traveling in an expedition based on shuttle/thrusters is the equivalent of using a motor home. Actually not too bad, but it can be wearying.

I only fold on "my" computer.
My computer is usually on between 7am and 9pm, not including a couple of hours of travel time.
It's a laptop, and I keep the CPU % at around 60%.


Do you turn yours off at night?

We didn't take inventory.

On the plus side, the laundry facilities are fully functional again, and there are plenty of shops available.

I'm at 116 with two computers folding, to break into the top 100 I think you have to have at least three going full blast.

I guess every WU counts in it's own little way.
