Yahoo: There's news that USA might open a new consulate in Bangalore or Hyderabad.
I have been playing with the Google Sitemap. The tool they provide ran like a charm, but it listed a lot of private stuff (it uses Unix's WALK, so even if you do not have a link to a file, it might get indexed by Google). You know stuff that you should have deleted from the webserver a long time ago. Remember the time your buddy couldn't open that spreadsheet so you made a HTML page for him? or the resume you uploaded to apply for a job a long time ago. or the source code you kept hidden so you could access it from a client site. Stuff like that.
I chickened out.
Perhaps it is best for me to write a program to adhere to the Sitemap protocol...
I did one of the 43 things I wanted to do before I die.
I strung my own racquet!
It was not easy, and I have developed a new respect for Lisa who strings my racquets every week (I seem to break them often, and I am not even a power player. I tried the Big Bangers. It lasted 11 days instead of 7, but cost three times as much).
Amma (via telephone) commenting on Chronology of Kamat Photo Archive, "no ordinary man can amass such a huge photographic collection, and he did it without having good equipment."

personalized corporate pages, and book-marking tools.
