This one is nice

This one is nice for geography geeks: USGS Mapping Information: GNIS United States and Territories Data Base Query Form. As an added bonus, many of the places link into Microsoft’s Terraserver image database. Speaking of geography geeks, I’m remembering a game I used to play with my housemate Stefan called Three Cities. Anybody can name ONE city in a given country, but can you name three? Quick: name three cities in Poland.

This is just too

This is just too cool. From the privacy of my own computer, I can watch the news on French TV. If you’ve got a good connection to the net, this is one fast streaming link, extremely high quality. My French isn’t even very good, but I find myself spellbound watching the latest news from Paris. This is one of those “in the future, we’ll be able to…” moments.
