In an effort to support the open source community (which includes the ColdFusion community via projects like BlogCFC and CFEclipse) I've added a new pod on the right that serves up Kalator ads. Kalator is a new ad service created by Rob Rohan that only serves up ads from open source projects. If you have an open source project you can submit it to the Kalator service or you can help support the open source community by picking a banner size and adding the appropriate code to your Web site.

In another wave of laptop battery recalls...

from Apple's Web site:

"Apple has determined that certain lithium-ion batteries containing cells manufactured by Sony Corporation of Japan pose a safety risk that may result in overheating under rare circumstances.

The affected batteries were sold worldwide from October 2003 through August 2006 for use with the following notebook computers: 12-inch iBook G4, 12-inch PowerBook G4 and 15-inch PowerBook G4.

Apple is voluntarily recalling the affected batteries and has initiated a worldwide exchange program to provide eligible customers with a new replacement battery, free of charge. This program is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and other international safety authorities."
