Hacking While Mir Burns

I’m having fun tonight. On my main Linux box I’m hacking on a weird pile of code that’s a combination of C, Perl, and Javascript while I listen to some old Krafwerk CDs. On my other box, I’ve got several nice real-time Mir telemetry feeds. The streaming video feed is too clogged up to be useful but CNN has a cool 3-D graphic that updates once a minute and there’s also a map showing Mir’s current position. NASA also has a Mir position tracker but it’s not as interesting as some of the others. I couldn’t find any live webcam views of the Taco Bell Mir Impact Target though, so I guess we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out if we get free tacos.
