“Zimbabwe’s state grain board has impounded more than 36 000 tons of maize from commercial farmers, accusing them of hoarding, state media reported on Monday.” – see this article. Read it all, it’s a tribute to the shining intellects (NOT) of our brothers down there. To make it even worse, 6000 tons were seized from a German-owned farm. Joseph Made, genius and agriculture minister, is quoted as saying: “We cannot have a situation where people are starving while others are withholding maize.

LATE BREAKING NEWS!

I’ve taken the “plunge” and joined emusic.com for three months. If you’re into mainstream, stay away… if you’re into somewhat more interesting music (Funker Vogt, Covenant, Front Line Assembly, Napalm Death, some more relaxed stuff I don’t know) this is definitely worth it. Otherwise, I’m trying to finish an article for the SPIE before I can get back to yummy volume visualisation and musculo-skeletal modeling.

I’m giving emusic.com a spin with their 14 day evaluation thingy. They have quite a selection of music that I like and I’ve experienced some awesome download speeds.
My New Vehicle
Our bicycles were stolen… really shitty. See my rants pages. In anycase, we’ve bought new ones (a big chunk paid for by the insurance). Now in spite of the shittiness of the previous ones having been stolen, I have to say that my new transportation is rather spiffy. So spiffy in fact, that I have decided to refrain from calling it a bicycle instead opting for the far more apt “Inter-Galactic Battle-Cruiser”.
