In reviewing the web, it is interesting to think of the consequences of EBay
entering the automotive business through EBay motors.  Some dealers, such
as , seem to be
completely focused using the huge audiences of consumers that EBay brings. 
Last year, 2.5 Billion dollars of auto sales went through EBay.  Is it
possible that in a few years, no dealers will be "bricks only" but must have a
web presence?  And by web presence, I mean, moving cars through EBay.

We have returned from DC where we had a great time. Prior to that I managed to get the Win2k3 server up and going with the fax service. I'm not sure it's a bug, but it always took an extra step to get it going. An "auto fax" printer would show up on the XP client. You could print to this fax, but it wouldn't send. You had to add a printer, and then select the fax being shown from the Win2k3 server. That would work.

Today's news on
is that anxiety and depression is on the rise among vets.  In today's times
can that be unexpected?  Isn't that a manifestation of what's going on in
all of society.

Today I consider what blog's are most useful.  Having done a preliminary
review, the vast majority of blog's are worse than people's diaries, with
rambling junk on what they felt or ate or how they slept.  Maybe their
descendants will care.  However, there are those rare few that achieve true
excellence.  NOSI is one of
those.  It transcends the idea of web blogs, even though it uses the same
technically.  Take a look, won't you?  It's for those who are
interested in naval strategy.

Recent articles on counseling news
discuss postpartum and postnatal depression.  Postnatal refers to an infant
immediately following birth whereas postpartum refers to the period after birth. 
Postnatal would be similar to neonatal.  From this we can conclude that the
term postnatal is probably inappropriate in these articles, since presumably the
infant is not depressed.

Continuing in the thoughts of yesterday, planning is essential to every
project.  Without planning and estimation, there can be no thoughts of how
and when you will cross the finish line.  A simple project, such as
creating the web site: 
may only take a moment and the planning is just a thought.  A more complex
project deserves more planning.  What percentage planning should the effort
of the overall effort be?   A good question.

Today's thoughts are around that of
.  As someone committed to being on the path to marriage, I
like to think of it as an engineering project.  One of the steps of any
project is the planning.  The planning for marriage can certainly include a
professional planner, someone skilled in the art of premarital counseling.

Today's entry from Counseling News
is that brains cells are born and die naturally.  It goes on to say that
depression can retard the birth of new cells.  Stress can inhibit the birth
of new cells.  Since talk therapy has been shown effective to treat
depression, the question for the day is:  can stress be biologically
measured in individuals so that the effectiveness of different treatments could
be measured?

Ok, today I reviewed the latest news from the psych world from The lead
story is that couples that have a balanced hormonal level of testosterone are
more likely to be happy. So man with relatively low testosterone can be happy
with a woman with relatively high testosterone. This makes sense to me. What are
the practical implications? Doesn't this mean, that rather than going to
pre-marital counseling, that couples should get their testosterone levels
checked out for chemical compatibility? Think about it.
