They did it in New York state. Now, they're doing it in Ireland. No more smoking in pubs.

At least the ban won't apply to psychiatric hospitals. I mean, what good would being crazy be if you couldn't mix your prozium cocktail with nicotine? Hm?

I also remember an engineer telling me that Broadband Over Powerlines was impossible- due to noise in the transformer. I argued he was wrong, that disruptions on the magnetic field of the current, and not in the current itself, would provide a data channel, and that would work. Really though, I don't think it's cost-effective.

Oh, and I've made alot of progess in my site when the cache decided to stop refreshing, so I'm taking a break while the server figures itself out. It's really hard to test your site when the server is dishing out pages from five revisions ago.
