Arena wants fans to tune in | Arena comes out with some big quips for US soccer fans. I agree with most of what he says but I am one that watches every game and watches MLS. I would attend some MLS games if I had a club closer. I DO attend the US National Team games. So everyone watch the game on Sat.

Can You Secure Your Own Wallet? | I heard about this on a podcast and I thought it was a great idea. I believe passwords should be complex. You could not imagine how easy most people's passwords are to guess/crack.

Space shuttle to get critical fix | BBC NEWS. Here is another story on the shuttle Discovery's return to flight mission. I keep reading this sentence, "The space shuttle Columbia was fatally damaged by foam debris in 2003, leading it to burn up on re-entry." It bothers me that it seems to appear at the end of EVERY article lately. Do they really think we will forget that it happened? Please, move on! Celebrate the overcoming of the problems and the return to flight. Going to space is INHERENTLY dangerous. I think 98% is pretty damn good.
