'Web of Life' (Dave Bender)

Close-up of droplets of rainwater suspended in a spider's web in the grass. I shot this alongside the Chattahoochee River, just north of Atlanta, as a light misty rain began to fall on a cold Sunday afternoon. Click the pic for the hi-rez size -- it's worth a closer look.

"Cropped 'n' Shopped:" sharpened and color corrected.

And speaking of rain, here's a great site for those wanting accurate information about the weather in Israel: The Israeli Meteorological Service.

'Geekdad' Hacks Hannukah

From Wired:
History notwithstanding, Hanukkah still lags behind Christmas in the transition from traditional light sources like candles towards microcontroller driven arrays of LEDs. While that may be simply due to the relative flammability of dry pine trees versus that of metal menorahs, the irony is that Hanukkah -- unlike Christmas -- actually requires observers to light up specific lights in a specific order, which is exactly the sort of thing that you want a microcontroller for.
Umm, ahh, sure. That's what I always wanted a microcontroller for. Doesn't everyone? Fun for the whole family:


Finally. The US media get it right about dealing with terrorists!

And it's about damn time.
