Ok, the night you originally posted this, I was visiting Chris in Dubuque and we were both reading my flist together when we saw this entry. We noted the hyperlinks to wedding presents. We wavered. And then we hovered. Both destinations were met with cheers of approval and I can say with pretty close to 100% certainty that your presents will be the best presents, but don't tell anybody I told you that.

P.S. Today I noticed this Netflix Prize
thing and thought of you. It's like the Fields Medal, except you get a million dollars instead of respect. I don't know if this is up your alley or not, but you know, you code
and do math
Ah, yeah, the Netflix Prize! The contest has been running since last October, but a friend of mine pointed out that it's been in the news
lately. glenn mcdonald had an interesting article
about it last year.
To give you an idea of how far out of my league it is, let me just point out that mcdonald is one of the guys who designed the software that I
use to do my
job, and he's saying that it's out of his
league, so, yeah.
