Everclear music is good

Was just browsing through some random
music online. Found this portland based
band: Everclear.

Two of their songs "she's so high" and
"wonderful" look to be nice.

Kissing number ??

This is an interesting problem in which you try
to find the maximum number of circles (spheres)
of radius 1 that can be placed next to a
single circle in n dimensions.

Wikipedia carries a very nice article on this.

UFO or HFO?

Just the other day me and a couple of my friends were contemplating,
are there really UFOs (unidentified flying objects)? Or is it just
the government trying to hide its high tech next generation planes
(HFO)?

There is another theory which says that some alien crafts are used
for reverse engineering and recreation of air crafts could this really
be possible. Yahoo had an article today about a consortium of
representatives from different countries demanding an investigation into
the UFO phenomenon.

Detailed article here.

CISCO Virtual Labs

Cisco apparently has a sweet product which allows
you to configure devices as if they were real.
The virtual labs software allows the user to telnet
into 7 different devices with the IOS command line
access.

Very useful for CCNA certification I guess.
