Daylight is no longer saved

Normally I greet the end of daylight saving time with a bit of sadness. It means the definitive end of summer, for one thing. I've also always found it depressing to leave work in the dark; if the sun is still up when I leave, I can at least preserve the illusion that I have some time left to myself before the end of the day.

But I have to admit, it was awfully nice to be able to see the bowl as I was pouring my breakfast cereal today. I hadn't realized just how much of my morning has been spent stumbling around in the dark lately. So maybe the trade-off is worth it. It's going to be a long, dark drive down to chorus, though.

It's a book/CD/DVD recommendation engine. Not that there aren't already a thousand of those out there, but this one is really simple, and it ties all your lists together. I need to play with it more to figure out how good it is.
