When I woke up this morning, the sky was pretty red. Now, I remember the first line of the rhyme: “Red sky at night, sailors delight.” But the second escapes me: “Red sky at dawn, sailors move the pawn?” “Red sky at sunrise, sailors eat french fries?” Ah, these guys know: “Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning.” But what should the rest of us do?

My sound recording experiments last night went really well. For $4.72, I had a cable that could connect the MiniDisc player’s headphone output to the iMac’s microphone input, and the audio quality was as good as my headphones could resolve. Audacity did the trick to record the sound in stereo, and now I can save it as an MP3, burn it to CD, etc. Cheap & easy!
