I just overtook the Aral Sea

... on Google that is. I know it's vain, I do, but yes, I Google myself every now and then [mom, if you're reading, it's not as bad as it sounds] and, finally -- finally, I tell you -- my blog's coming up second when searching for "Aral". Now if only I can beat that pesky German petrolium company (which I won't be linking to!) :P

So this was one of those lighthearted, non-technical posts... please feel free to move on. Nothing to see here... :)
