So here we are - six days into twenty-oh-nine. The hitherto (well... there was that one time) ceaseless procession of time has led us to this moment. I have been relatively idle and am slowly resuming the busy.
Some consideration for the year 2009: It's the International Year of Reconciliation, Astronomy and Natural Fibres. Some countries will cease broadcasting analogue TV signals. Numerically it looks a little bit like the word "zoog" (as long as the font has a single story lower-case 'g'). The longest lasting total solar eclipse of the 21st century will occur. It seems, and potentially will be, more futuristic than 2008.
