Avoid the Hoopla

Found out yesterday that my ICDE'05 submission from July was accepted as a poster paper. Totally awesome news. This means I might have a trip to Tokyo next April.

Oh and by the way, the 10-year ban on assault weapons ended at midnight last night. Thanks to the lobbyists from the NRA, every family in America can now own a semi-automatic. I mean, who doesn't want a Colt AR-15 in their living room? </sarcasm>
