A nice little pick-me-up today: I went to buy some new clothes and had to go down a size in jeans to a 32. Last year I lost 30 pounds thanks to diet (Weight Watchers Online, i.e., "Forget Atkins, Just East Sensibly and Control Your Portions") and exercise (riding my bike to work), and went from a size 36 waist to, now, a 32. It feels good. My only complaint is that the weight didn't all come off my middle, which still needs work. Maybe in several months I'll be posting about 30?

Updated: Glenn has posted more pictures, including one of yours truly demonstrating the proper Boppie technique to the new parents.
Unpatched PCs Compromised in 20 Minutes
Again, why do I use a Mac? Study: Unpatched PCs compromised in 20 minutes. Look, this isn't a "my computer is better than your computer" issue anymore... if you value your data or security at all (and you should!), the insecurity of Windows is just unacceptable.
