It's time to upload some photos of Aaron (since he's almost 2 weeks old) but my old photo gallery stopped working. It was getting pretty long in the tooth anyway; the software behind it (Gallery2) is three years old. It never integrated properly with Drupal and took a lot of work to maintain. It's still active for 69thnewyork.com, and you can still access all the old photos and features at koplowicz.com/gallery2.

Here's a 7,000 word essay on what realistic space battles would look like. I don't agree with every point; I do think stealth would be useful, and I think regular machine guns would be useful too. In addition, the essay briefly considers the fact that any adequately large battleship, or even space freighter, could be a dangerous weapon against a land target like a city, but doesn't really deal with the strategic implications of that.

Watching it from space gives a kind of antisceptic feel to the entire thing. You know terrible destruction is been wreaked below. Kinda reminds me of the view from a battlecruiser:

From the "I can't believe I never posted this" department. I was digging through some old files and found this gem from law school. Warning: These will get a little raunchy. I blame law school.

Republicans: You now have two choices for the next four years. You can find common ground with your fellow Americans and work toward a future we can all enjoy, or you can be whiny little bitches.
