Today’s Ray Of Hope: Harvard Gets A Clue

— Wombat-socho “Despair is a sin.” – J.E.Pournelle This should actually have gone up yesterday, but I spent most of the day waiting for my truck to be worked on and am not much interested in trying to make posts from my cellphone, bolshy great phablet that it is.

On Da Tech Guy’s Radio Show
