It looks like the British government has realised that it takes more than simply a military strategy to combat domestic terror. This is good news. I'm glad the situation in Israel / Palestine is looking a bit more optimistic this week than it was a week ago. People are talking a little... We've still all got to keep hoping, praying, sacrificing lifestock, or whatever we can do to encourage peace.
diaryness: I've started posting to my LiveJournal account instead of here mostly. I'm working on a script that'll import my posts from there, but I'm not finished yet. I'm also hacking on a LiveJournal client that I might be inspired to make into an Advogato diary client too... We'll see.
