Weekly Flu Review from the CDC
During week 20 (May 17 – 23, 2009), influenza activity decreased in the United States, however there are still higher levels of influenza-like illness than is normal for this time of year.
CDC – Influenza (Flu) | Weekly Report: Influenza Summary Update Week 20, 2008-2009 Season
Fascinating. Still a lot of flu around, including H1N1, more than normal for this time of year in fact. Looking at the graphs would seem to indicate that despite the appearance of H1N1 and a late season, last year (07–08) was worse.

Sounds like a worthy endeavor. I need to get my hands on an external DVD drive to reload my EeePC.
Neat Stuff in Windows 7
The changes to the Windows 7 interface have gotten a lot of play, but some of the new built-in tools are just as compelling. Deb Shinder runs through some of the most impressive enhancements, from the ISO burner to the Biometric Framework to PowerShell v2.
via 10 cool tools in Windows 7 | 10 Things | TechRepublic.com.
I’ve been fiddling with Windows 7 for a couple of weeks now and the release candidate seems pretty stable. It still seems to do a lot of disk thrashing for the first 10 minutes or so after it starts, but that’s about the worst I’ve seen.
