Jeff Moser has an enlightened, and entertaining explanation of the Advanced Encryption Standard on his web site, Moserware. As Jeff describes the explanation, its a play in four acts. I had to exit the stage when the stick figure professor got into the heavy math, but it was a great lesson, none the less.
I was reading through some threads this morning on a Mac that were talking about interesting ways to create contact sheets for DVDs that contain lots of archived photos.

A couple years ago, I bought a very inexpensive wine cooling refrigerator by Haier. Turns out, it is a fairly simple device made by Oster. It will hold 12 bottles of wine and gives you the option to set the inside temperature you’d like. For the first couple of months, it worked like a charm, then for whatever reason, it stopped working.
The eclipse is part of series 136 in the Saros cycle, like the record setting Solar eclipse of July 11, 1991. The exceptional duration is a result of the moon being near perigee, with the diameter of the moon 8% larger than the sun (magnitude 1.080).
Taking the web site offline – going old school. Typewriters, duplicators and paper folding. Oh yeah!
