Really cool

If you have even a tiny interest in family history or genealogy, you must go check out Find a Grave right now. I found my great grandfather and my great aunt there. You can leave virtual flowers, too. Really, really cool.

The RIAA’s website was hacked this morning. It seems to have been taken down now, but there is a mirror of the hacked site.

I think I’m going to waste the tag board on the right. Will anyone miss it? The right hand bar needs to be cleaned up.

I made the appointment. I’m having surgery on September 10 to take out the calcification or whatever it is. Technically it’s called an excision biopsy, which means that the surgeon is going to remove the whole thing and a little bit of surrounding tissue in an outpatient procedure (although I will be in an operating room in the hospital). They’re going to knock me mostly out with what he called a souped up twilight sleep, meaning that I might be a little responsive but I won’t remember anything.

Now that’s a little gruesome, isn’t it? I might be awake while they slice into my body. Even if I won’t remember it, I have to wonder if it will affect me in some subconscious way. I’ve read horror stories about people who wake up in the middle of surgery.

Biopsy is a very scary word. I’m pretty terrified, but it will be nice once it’s over with.

Would anyone be interested in playing the exquisite corpse game with me? I think it could easily be done on the computer.
