Welcome to another Sunday morning summary, with all the lateness that
implies.

I'll get the meta stuff out of the way first- Celia's post about a
conference on summarisers led Matt Jones to ponder on an AvantGo channel for
the summary web page, Ashley Pomeroy to parody Reese and Patrik Nordebo to
mention the ultimate in two-word summaries.

Last week's discussions on Russia prompted Yet Another Libertarian Thread,
as Steve Mynott questioned how much the label applied to Russia, and Matt
Jones asking for clarification. The Texan clarified things (especially what
roles are left to government, and how policing is handled), while Steve
Mynott tackled the issue of PPP and tube pricing, and David Cantrell took
issue. Todd Larason questioned how private Railtrack was anyway.

There was a bumber sticker cascade over the weekend too, but that sort of
thing's only really funny at the time.

http://slab.org/mailman/private/void/Week-of-Mon-20010514/038639.html

After the weekend, things took a turn for the worse; Rick Hawkin's post of a
nuclear blast radius calculator and questioning when you'd rather die
prompted Ashley to be Mad Max-ish, Steve Mynott to post about bunkers and UK
targets, Duncan to move the thread onto biological warfare and The Texan to
complain about the use of chemical weapons in riot control. Alex Robinson
added a link to old British Government leaflets.

Niklas Nordebo posted a link to an EU proposal for email archival, which
prompted a burst of bogus calculations on how much space that would take up,
and Simon Batistoni wondered about the fact he runs his own mail server.
Steve Mynott posted interesting factoids on traffic through LINX. Todd
Larason came up with naughty plans.

Chris Devers recounted an unpleasant encounter with possums; John Melesky
pointed out even more badness, and Paul Mison provided dull but important
facts about crash reporting. The Texan let us know about his experiences
with bad deer birth.

Simon Batistoni started a few days of shared URL posting with a post on
Mouse Soup and a Waterproof sofa. Todd Larason provided links to the
original information, Rick followed links to Microsoft's dream house
(provoking a caption competition, of sorts), Chris Devers picked up that
this was deja-Slashdot, Steve Mynott likes his Dyson, and Todd Larason
linked to lileks.com; visits to that site carried on for *ages*.

Simon Wistow posted at length on the Bitstream exhibition in NY; another
Simon talked about distorted skulls, Matt Jones picked up on an aside and
prompted a diversion on white Vulcan bombers, while Rick followed up on
Robert Shiels post about Mondrian-esque computer-generated images, which
don't quite manage to have his essence.

A (void) meeting was first mentioned by The Texan on Sunday, but the full
write up waited until Wednesday, when Mike Jarvis gave his side of the day;
The Texan added his comments, and there ensued an argument- but not really-
about whether women could rock 'n' roll, largely picked up on by Chris
Devers.

Meanwhile, Ashley asked whether Harry really was a name, prompting Simon
Wistow to talk about fish shops, again, and Steve Mynott tauntingly said
he'd found a good one, without saying where it was...

http://slab.org/mailman/private/void/Week-of-Mon-20010521/039003.html

Skipping over the Fight Club, Tank, Language and the Web (a shame, as it was
a good one- ah well) and Antitrust threads (partially as I want to go to see
the latter at Wistow's video thing), we come to Chris Devers stats post;
Todd Larason provided some interesting threads ondate and time of posts, and
Robin Houston was the first to explain why the May 1 bank holiday is on May
7. The Texan tried to add up posts from all the different accounts of some
posters; no-one's tried to do it for everyone yet.
