Continuing with some customizations for AmphetaDesk, I created a simple change to the default template that lets you quickly jump from each news source.
Using the AmphetaDesk news aggregator is great, but I wanted a way to synchronize my channel list between various places (home, work, etc.). I made a simple modification which uses an FTP site to keep the channel lists coordinated no matter where you are.
I just finished another good story from World War II: In Harm’s Way: The Sinking of the USS Indianapolis….
I had heard of this book at some point and had added it to my Amazon “wish list”. There was the reference from Jaws that always interested me, so finally we bought the paperback and my wife and I both read it.
I came away from the book with a couple of distinct thoughts: 1) there were a lot of people in the US military at fault for the incident; and 2) those boys really went through hell after the ship was sunk. I was expecting the physical degradation after the ship sunk and they waited many days for rescue, but I was surprised to learn about the psychological damage as well.
