January 15, 2005 Newsletter
Earlier this week Virginia told me that the recent Tsunami had affected the Earth’s rotation. Assuming she’d heard it from the media, I sour-faced the very thought (I’m generally skeptical of the media).
Now I have to apologize to her. After resorting to the NASA website, I learned that yes, indeed, the earth’s rotation has been affected. Earth days have now decreased by 2.68 microseconds. That’s something amazing to consider.In other news, I have noticed that certain groups have found it an apparent challenge to get past some of the email abuse filters applied to the site mail and guestbooks. A couple have been sending out bogus proposals to members. I have further increased the restrictions on what can be sent through the system… but I want to ask any registered member who receives those mails to forward them to me so that I can further fortify the system.
I hope everyone has a safe and productive week.
