Welcome ta Earf. We've got fireworks!
For the fine folks from the United States, it's that time of the year where we set off a bunch of fireworks, drink way too much, grill meat, and watch Independence Day.

Google Reader apparently did not serve this purpose, or did not serve it well enough, and as of tomorrow it will be gone. In preparation of this event, I have written a eulogy to be read at Google Reader's virtual funeral.Read More
