Korean Translation?

Can anyone tell me what the first paragraph of this page says? It links to my popular 10 Habits entry but I don't have a clue why...

The Bombers are Coming

This weekend is the annual Watsonville Fly-In and Air Show. I'll be heading down on Sunday to see the sites and man the booth/display for the Hollister Gliding Club (HGC) and the Bay Area Soaring Associates (BASA). There will be a glider fly-by (the Duo Discus) on Saturday and Sunday. The Duo will be on display the rest of the time.

I'll take some pictures of the sites.

Anyone reading this planning to go?

Oh, the reason I thought to bring this up is that some of the WWII war birds seem to be arriving already. They've been flying around Moffett Field today. My theory is that they're flying to Moffett where they'll stay until the show. Then they'll fly down to Watsonville to make their appearances.

For what it's worth, I once landed a glider at Watsonville. That was a fun day--I got to fly a loop then too. :-)

Bike Weather Returns

Ah. The weather today was perfect for a bike ride. I got home at 6:30pm and was on the bike by 6:45pm. It wasn't a long ride, but it was refreshing. If this weather continues (and it looks like it will), I'll try getting back into the swing of going for a ride before heading to work each day.

The GPS mount for my bike arrived, so I'll finally know how far I'm doing and how quickly I'm getting there. Don't worry, this is just phase #1 of the Geek Bike project. More on that later.

The fear war against Linux

Bruce Perens has an article on titled The fear war against Linux that does a good job of examining possible motivations for SCO's recent attacks against Linux and what Microsoft's involvement may be.

There's blood in the water...

According to this article, Microsoft is planning to license Unix code from SCO:

Microsoft will license the rights to Unix technology from SCO Group, a move that could impact the battle between Windows and Linux in the market for computer operating systems.

Does this make anyone else wonder what the SCO folks are smoking? (As if we didn't already...)

Update: It seems that /. has the story too. So if you want to read what all the morons think, head on over!
