Apollo 4 on column of fire

Looking forward

I’m thinking there is little reason to compromise over health care on Olympia Snowe’s behalf, because she will vote (in one sense or another) for the final bill anyway.

On the other hand, Barack Obama is likely to be pushing for what he went into this process expecting to get, and thus he may miss an opportunity to get more than he expected. Probably this would be a mistake; this is not gambling, and being ahead helps you get further ahead.

Kompostilo is successfully migrated from subversion to mercurial! (http://code.google.com/p/kompostilo/source/checkout)

I prefer mercurial because the complete repository and project history are stored wherever I or someone else is working with the repository, and not just at Google’s servers – redundancy is a blessing. Also, if my networking is down, I can check in stuff locally, for later output to Google. OTOH the main reasons for using mercurial – greater flexibility in collaboration – are not something I’m taking advantage of, because I have no collaborators and don’t expect any soon. :)
