I saw this interesting article at engadget about how to build your own network firewall from an old pentium II with linux.

Here's three more interesting links on energy. This one talks about the myths and realities of ethanol suggesting it may not be all its hyped to be. This other one is sort of a propaganda commercial for using coal but is still interesting as we should definitely diversify our use of any resource for energy. Of course this post wouldn't be complete without a link talking about peak oil.

I have a huge interest in the energy technology sector. Especially with the recent increase in costs for gas and other energy. Here are a couple links to look at if your interested. Hydrogen from Biomass, Crunching the numbers on alternative fuels, The Car of the Future.

The last two weeks I've been working on bug fixes on the site. Finals went ok.

The immigration debate continues to be heated. Many people hit the streets all across the nation protesting the ill will towards immigrants. People have been talking about building a wall. Others have even talked about throwing out the more than 11 million immigrants. Very few seem to be talking about the punishing the companies that hire illegal immigrants and encourage immigrants to come here. Some people are arguing better than others.

I have only a few things to say about this debate. First who cares what language The National Anthem is in, at least they want to hear and understand it. America can never again become an isolated country, it is not healthy. America thrives on new blood. Also the possibility of splitting up families needs to be exempted from any possible immigration reform. The idea that families would be split up is unacceptable. Whatever reform comes of all of this it should be remembered that those illegal immigrants tend to be the most driven and are the kinds of people we want in this country, it is the companies who are the most at fault here.

Another cure for skin cancer.

Is there a possible massive oil field found off the coast of US near New Orleans?

Why are Americans less healthy than this European counterparts? More information about health in America here and here.
