And on Tuesday, nothing of importance happened.

Not compared to yesterday, anyway...when I got home around 8 PM after dropping phoenixalpha off at her place and then getting myself a steak at Outback, the parking lot was plowed, the sidewalks had been cleared, and the hot water was working again. Yay!

Today I had 67 pages of AU closures to wade through; the good news is that 62 of them weren't on my system and the remaining five pages had nothing biled to them yet, so I could just close them without having to chase people down and ask them whither they wanted their charges moved. I also had the usual deluge of billing files, but those went smoothly as well.

This gave me time to do a little blog reading, in the course of which I discovered that Google has apparently decided that what's good for the Chinese is good for the US as well. and taken the axe to The Peoples' Cube, a pseudo-Communist site that lampoons the Left. Apparently Google is unhappy with them over hidden text and links on the site, which is kind of dorky considering that all of those are duplications of openly displayed links further up on the page, and also a mite suspicious - usually if you commit an unknowing or ignorant TOS violation, you get a warning instead of being immediately flushed down the memory hole. You can still find the site fairly easily through Yahoo and other search engines, but given how central Google has become to a lot of peoples' experience of the Internet, it doesn't look very good. More deep thoughts on the issue here. Via Michelle Malkin.
