  1. Home again home again, jiggity ji...esus it's been 24 hours of trains, three planes, four airports, a taxi, and a 90 minute drive home from Windsor. But we're back. Good night.
  2. With special guests Brian Charette and Fareed Haque!
  3. So that whole thing about recovery? One more ain't gonna hurt.
  4. Going to miss this place.
  5. As usual, the Simpsons are ahead of the curve.
  6. Steamed mussels, Flemish stew, frittes, and beer. That was lunch. How do we top that for dinner?
  7. These tiny strawberries are the most delicious I've ever had. The weekend outdoor markets in Leuven are overflowing with fresh local produce and meats and cheeses and everything you could need for the coming week's meals.
  8. Ghent, Belgium.
  9. Ghent, Belgium.
  10. Looking out across from the Leuven train station.

  13. Alison's first Trappist. Yum!
  14. I think the thing that's even more creepy than Ted Cruz himself is the fact that his wife looks like him. He married himself. Ick.

  20. Seems like an internecine struggle to me. Wouldn't using the name Zappa Plays Zappa benefit everyone?
  21. Zora's science fair project on the miniaturization of the transistor. The Commodore 64 and Xbox 360 illustrate Moore's Law and how many transistors fit on a single chip circa 1975 (when the 65xx chips were introduced by MOS Technologies) and 2005. The 6510 chip in the C64 has 3500 transistors. The Xenon chip in the Xbox has 164 million. The A8 chip in my iPhone 6 that I'm typing this on, released in 2015, has 1 billion transistors. Amazing.
