If you haven't seen this story, what a sad one for these parents. 4-year old Madeleine McCann disappeared 14 days ago from a resort in Portugal.

What were they thinking? Most of these resorts offer babysitting, although it usually isn't cheap. But the story is huge in Europe and you can go to the website to read more.

Kentucky finished the recruiting season with a huge win when 6'8'' Patrick Patterson committed to play for the Cats next year! For now we'll ignore the obvious bias in the coverage of the event by the national sports media. Kudos to Billy Gillispie for closing the deal, and to Tubby Smith for establishing us as a contender early in the process. Patterson is the real deal, and should have an immediate impact. I can't wait until November - and Midnight Madness!

Our Professor even set up his computer for dual-boot, so he can choose to use either Windows or Linux. He did point out that he still likes to do his taxes online, and the financial software he uses won't work with Linux. So be warned there are limitations!
