For a while it looked like I might be looking up the local Bojangles for the Sausage Biscuit 100 Point Victory Special as UNC walked all over my alma mater NCSU. But in the end the Heels came up 5 points short of the 100 needed to help me ruin my health. Still it’s hard to complain about a 95 – 71 victory. NCSU had a pretty good second half, but the first half was all UNC.

One of the joys of working with the Folkstreams Project, in which we are digitizing nearly 40 documentaries shot mostly in the mid to late 20th century, is that I get to watch and listen to a lot of wonderful music and stories that I have managed to mostly miss out on or only pay scant attention to.
Right now, as I’ve cleaning up some smaller tasks and getting ready for a doctor’s appointment, I’m listening and watching “Jumpin’ in the Garden of Eden” about the rebirth of klezmer music in the USA. Shot in 1987, the film focuses on two bands major to the klezmer revival, Kapelye and Boston’s Klezmer Conservatory Band.

Everyone in the lab is excited about the Firefox tweeks as described at TweekFactor. I’ve had my Fox themed for sometime, but I am thinking of adding a few of the enhancements mentioned there. Thanks to Fred and Adi.
