Site ColumnsBy Christian

Well, at least I'm able to push out these Site Columns before the server switches to tomorrow. Spent most of the day shopping here, mostly focusing on music and book shops. It's a pity the pound is so high at the moment, as otherwise I'm sure I would have bought at least half a dozen CDs - Brit music taste seems to be very similar to my own. As it was, I only bought Semisonic's 'Pleasure' EP, which I don't think even Amazon had anymore, plus 3 books - it's amazing how I don't seem to be able to enter a bookstore without buying at least one book. Today I got 'Learning Perl' from O'Reilly, to finally help me get some theoretical background on the programming language, Bill Bryson's 'Down Under', a travel guide to Australia, where I'll be going next year for a while, and finally a book on propoganda in WW II, one of my particular fields of interest.

Alan Boyle at MSNBC has written a new article on the recent experiment in New Jersey, during which light was accelerated to speeds of faster than or 300,000 kilometers per second. In the article, the researchers say that their findings have been misinterpreted by the press, and that Einstein's relativity theory has in fact not been disproven. Warp speeds still seem far away.
