Various delays

Bad weather at the Cape is delaying the shuttle landing for at least an orbit. They'll decide again in about 30 minutes whether to try again; if they do it'll land (hopefully) in about 2 hours. C-SPAN, not having a Congress session it has to show, is showing NASA TV instead, which is nice, as it means I get to watch it on bigger than a postage-stamp sized RealPlayer window.

We're back on the old software at work for the moment. We discovered (on my night off, thank God) that the new software had a page-eating bug (this is something like a kite-eating tree).

UPDATE: The weather wound up being too unstable and unpredictable to risk landing today. So they'll try again tomorrow morning. C-SPAN promises they'll be showing it then, too.
