Sorry about not updating yesterday; I caught a cold and spent the day watching TV. I’m back up to about 75% healty now, and I’m at work today. I’m also making progress, thanks to an idea I had when I woke up yesterday.

While watching TV, I did manage to see a few interesting things. Digimon is a Pokemon rip-off that has much better artwork, but looks obviously rushed to America (the voice work is occasionally horrible, and they don’t even translate a lot of text in the show to English). I also caught several episodes of Star Trek: Voyager, including the season premiere. Perhaps not surprisingly, it was rather poor; there were a lot of plot holes and inconsistencies. Ah well.

My Dad came home from knee surgery yesterday. In fact I had to drive him home, though that was easy enough. Amazingly, he should be able to walk and drive come Saturday.

I stumbled across a website called Space Future on Tuesday. It talks about civilian space travel, and explains that nothing is preventing us from building space hotels and such, other than initial cost. A space hotel would certainly pay for itself; it would just be initially expensive. It’s a shame nobody thinks that it’s viable, when the person who does eventually put the money forward stands to make very large sums from this.
