A year late, but I finally have our Honeymoon pictures online, complete with embedded GPS data. Best viewed in Google Earth, using the "View in Google Earth" button in the upper-right.

The Internet

Algorithm puzzle

Suppose that you live in a society with arranged marriages and you've been elected the town matchmaker. You'd like to make everyone happy, so you request a list from each man and woman about who they would be willing to marry. Your job is then to find a set of pairings that maximize the number of matches.

Okay, that's not too bad, it's a bipartite matching problem and can be solved with the Hopcroft-Karp algorithm.

U.S. seizes IndyMac as troubles spread

Those of you shorting the finance industry can do the happy dance now. My holdings in UltraShort S&P500 ProShares (SDS) will undoubtedly get a kick on Monday, too.

At the time of closing, IndyMac had about $1 billion of potentially uninsured deposits held by about 10,000 depositors. The FDIC said it would pay those depositors an advance dividend equal to 50 percent of the uninsured amount.

Ouch. Somebody got burned.

The next President is going to inherit quite a mess.
