Weird thing of the day 12 May 2005/3 'Iyyar 5765 (Day 18 of the `Omer/Israeli Independence Day/Another Kite Day)

Greetings.

Today is Israeli Independence Day. For a change, I’m going to let someone else do the political lecturing by recommending The Case for Israel by Alan Dershowitz, which is an excellent book on the Israeli-Stateless Arab (“Palestinian”) conflict and all the historical and moral mythology that goes along with it, available from many fine booksellers.

Unrelated: For those of you who use Adium, a free, open source instant messaging client for Mac OS X, I have made available on the Web my NeXTesque Adium menu icons, which are just gray replacement icons which look like for the systemwide Adium menu. For those of you who don’t use Adium, that’s a duck.

Today’s weird thing is an article that takes independence to an unusual degree: “Universal wireless charging: the Splashpower solution”. Enjoy.
