My wonderful Meg kitty.

(no subject)

This was a while ago (I believe around 1.5-2 years ago), but I figure someone around here might remember.

IIRC, there was a Java application which JPL had written that one could download and run. It would snag pictures from their collection of Spirit and Opportunity images and show them to you with annotations.

My question to you:
1) Was my memory imperfect?
2) If yes, is there one similar to what I described?
3) Where can I find it?

I was reminded of this by Spirit and Opportunity reaching the 2 year mark (Opportunity was actually on the 24th, Spirit on the 3rd).

In idling around today, I came across a few useful links:
EvoWiki - A MediaWiki which seeks to catalog anti-evolution arguments and explanations.
Talk.Origins' list of common arguments and footnotes.

A side note -- David Ford is a major contributer to t.o. He spoke in the same session as I at Design and Its Critics. I meant to engage him in public debate on the forums there at some point, but I was distracted by a paper with Kelly Smith at the time.

An amusing, although sad link:
Mars Anomaly Research

For my own cataloging --
Teen killed ‘car-surfing’ - Notable for the comments about traffic speed.
Surf or Turf: The seawall debate - I have a better version of this in dead-tree form. Notable for ignorant comments about the seawall and preference for ineffectual, natural methods.
