Lispy Box

From the Lispy site, a new subproject:

Lispy Box is a sub-project of the Lispy project which aims to create a Common Lisp library “box” or starter kit similar to LibCL, Lispbox, Lisp in a Box and STARTER-PACK. Lispy Box is distributed as a rolling release (similar to how Ubuntu is released). Each release includes the entire Official map of Common Lisp libraries at the time of the Lispy Box release in one large archive.

Here's the Lispy Box tarball and its signature.

HDTV

We get the cheapest possible TV service from Time Warner, something like $15 a month for 15 or so channels. The day after Christmas I bought a HDTV and figured I'd get the same service - 15 or so analog channels delivered over coax. It was so unappealing that I didn't even bother to try it for a few days. But when I plugged in the cable and did autoprogram, it actually found dozens of DTV channels and now I get all the networks (ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, PBS) in HD. For nothing extra. The football game looked pretty amazing.

Don't pay Time Warner extra for any digital cable. The HDTV is already available.
