Misc Ramblings
You guys thought I'd forget, didn't you?!?!? shame shame shame.... I'm posting this tonight from Colorado, guesting with Krbshappy71 and Rahhstah. SuperDwarf, Jaymac and I are all here with Dutch and krbs 2 kids. And yet.. here I am... posting this for you guys.

We had 2 gold stars today starting with SeaMax USA who blew past 10 thousand Credits. Jester was next up, becoming just the 5th member of the team to pass the 1 million Credit mark... Very Nicely Done...

olive was our top cruncher today with 17 thousand 528 Credits. Dave Rave snagged second place with 12 thousand 947 Credits. And jester snagged a solid Double with a 3rd place finish using 7 thousand 397 Credits. Thats a really nice double if you ask me..!!!!

QUAD NEON was our top mover today. He dropped 2 thousand 522 Credits and managed to snag 5 places on the team charts, and coincidentally entering the top 100 at the same tyme.. WOOT!!!

Speaking of QUAD NEON, he earned himself a double as a mover and shaker, turning his nose up at The Cat Toys and becomming the newest member of The Chow Hounds... WOOT!!!

And thats it.. Thats all, I'm done. There wont be news tomorrow since as far as I know, there is no broadband in Yellowstone National Park (if I'm wrong, then I'll post). I should be able to post wednesday night, probably not on thursday, and maybe friday or saturday night... So... Enjoy what I can get on here :)

Possible Methane Lakes on Titan
Credit: Cassini Radar Mapper, jpl, esa, nasa

Explanation: Have methane lakes been discovered on Saturn's Titan? That exciting possibility was uncovered from analyses of radar images returned last week by the robotic cassini spacecraft now orbiting Saturn. The above image is a radar reflection from terrain near Titan's North Pole and spans a region about 200 kilometers across. evidence that the dark areas might be pools of liquid hydrocarbons includes an extreme smoothness implied by the lack of a return radar signal, and apparently connected tributaries. If true, Titan would be only the second body in our solar system, after Earth, found to possess liquids on the surface. Future observations from Cassini during titan flybys might test the methane lake hypothesis, as comparative wind affects on the regions are studied.
