Welcome to week fortytwo!
This week was filled with a lot of technical learning - once again. This is always a good thing - for me at least. This is really where my heart is. Most weeks are like this, fortunately.

Today I learned about Microsoft Encarta - I used to own a copy and it was great! This is a great piece of computing history - I remember having wild fantasies about how much information could be stored in computers in the future. The simple answer is: All of it.
