Found this today. Love it.

Update:
Well, I can’t seem to get the widget to work. It’s supposed to be a counter, indicating how long it has been since the U.S. Senate has passed a budget.

They’re losers. But so am I, apparently. Can’t get an iframe to work on this page….

Love it.  It’s so out-of-the-ordinary for a stock chart (well, not anymore; you’ll see the same for lots of the major players on that day).

Some economics links:

Other miscellaneous links:

Some programming stuff, mostly ASP.Net.  It has been all .Net, all the time.  Mostly, I’ve been pleased.  Google has definitely been my friend:

Too many open windows in Safari, so it’s time to clean up.  Here are some of the things I’ve been interested in:

  • Unlocking the Auction-Rate Mess at Barron’s:  “Retail and institutional investors alike loaded up on auction-rates in recent years, assuming they were almost as liquid as cash. Generally, investors can opt to sell such securities at weekly or monthly auctions — or at least they could until the investment banks stopped bidding on them last winter. The result: Holders of $330 billion of securities quickly found they had no buyers, and no way of unlocking their money.”  Much more where that came from.
  • Alt-Energy ETFs.
  • A look at the Annenberg Challenge, which is still causing quite the controversy.  Stanley Kurtz over at The Weekly Standard is still digging around.  I’m actually thinking he won’t find anything, but Obama and his clan certainly didn’t do themselves any favors by trying to bury the data.
  • Should Google Go Nuclear?  A video of a presentation done at Google by Bussard.
  • Articles, at The Economist and The Wall Street Journal (here, too), on the Russian invasion of Georgia.
  • Houston Chronicle on Sarah Palin’s knowledge of the energy industry.  Bottom line:  a lot.
  • Liberal Arrogance at Bidinotto.
  • How The Surge Worked.  And, uh, for the few clueless wonders who still believe otherwise?  It did.  Even Obambi is grudgingly admitting to it.  Months and months after the rest of the world got it.
  • The best gaming-PC money can buy.
  • Omnivoracious:  The Best Business Books Ever.

Something to while away the time:

  • A CLang review at Rogue Amoeba.  Something to get into more as I teach myself Objective-C and Cocoa.
  • 15 online tools.  Something for every tech-head.
  • Myth of Consensus Explodes.  Oops.  Maybe there really is a difference of opinion about AGW?  Here’s the original article at APS.  Heh.  They’re using Cold Fusion to drive their site.  No wonder the damn thing was overloaded a few days ago.
  • Dan Simmons continues to just blow me away with the depth, breadth, and focus of his knowledge about everything.  Here’s his latest newletter on his website.  It’s about the Olympics, Germany, Nazis, Jews, Munich, etc.  Breath-taking.  It’s a long read, so settle in for a while.  It’s also not a permanent link.  I couldn’t track that down.  It should be up through September, though.
  • Some links about oil, our dependency on such, and what we can do about it:
  • The actual article behind the New Yorker satire cover on Obama.
  • Maybe the Enron trial wasn’t as open-and-shut as I believed?  Hard to tell.

Some things I’ve been reading/contemplating:

  • What Options Volatility is: TradeKing
  • Black-Scholes applet used to calculate future Option prices.
  • CSIS came out with a report claiming that Israel would weather a nuclear confrontation with Iran. I wonder at the motivations of the author. Is it:
      – firing a warning shot across the bow for Iran to pay close attention to? or
      – an attempt by someone to downplay the threat to Israel, so that more heat can be applied to Bush to ‘play nice’ with Iran?
  • Clayton Cramer has more on Nanosolar. I want stock, I want stock, I want stock.
  • Must-read book: Energy Victory. Here’s a blog analysis of it.
