How suite it is...

So I've been sitting here for the last two hours, at home, pulling together the data that Bhavin asked for in response to Verisign's waffle. I've been listening to good morning music - springsteen, jewel, CSNY and other equally easy to digest at this early hour type music.

It all of a sudden occurs to me how cool the internet actually is. (Like, where have I been for the last seven years...)

I'm sitting here listening to tunes that I'm streaming over ethernet from my homebrew media server researching data located in California in response to a post to a mailing list that is managed by someone in France. And its all pretty seamless thanks to the various applications that make it all possible.

Even cooler, the internet also provided me with a neat distraction just now. I don't really listen to lyrics, so occassionally I will google a song title and append "lyric" to the search just to get a bettter idea of what the vocalist is yodelling about. This time it was "Suite Judy Blue Eyes" that made me realize I had no idea what the song was about. I absolutely love the translation of this closing refrain...

How happy it makes me to think of Cuba,
the smiles of the Caribbean Sea,
Sunny sky has no blood, and how sad that
I'm not able to go
Oh go, oh go go

Suite indeed. I'm beginning to love what the internet is turning into - for me at least. I hereby dub today "First Annual 'Thanks for Open-Standards and Affordable Access' Day" here in Radersburg.
