A fantasy story about a network for bunnywabbits. Oh, wait...|
In related news. Got bored with Ancient Faith Radio. Went back to WQXR. That's boring too.
Did I mention that my FB friend Ray recorded a webinar about the current Numis Network promotion? If you are curious about what I have been blathering on about, check out http://promo.arisbe.net . Yeah, I thought it was important enough to set up a subdomain for it. Then again, that's the sort of thing I do. I was even thinking about setting one up for this journal. If I do it will probably be journal.arisbe.net.
Waiting somewhat impatiently for Diaspora to go live. Then Facebook can kiss my... diaspora.
Must go out to the drugstore for some family meds.

NATO takes over command of military operations in Libya
[b]NATO is taking over command of military operations in Libya from coalition forces, world media reported Sunday.[/b]
The UN Security Council imposed the no-fly zone over Libya on March 17, along with ordering "all necessary measures" to protect civilians from Muammar Gaddafi's attacks on rebel-held towns.
The 28 NATO ambassadors met on Sunday to decide on further military plans in Libya.
The United States transfers command for a no-fly zone over Libya to NATO, while coalition forces will continue to protect civilian population from attacks by Gaddafi forces.
The military operation in Libya, codenamed Odyssey Dawn, has been conducted so far jointly by 13 states, including the United States, Britain and France.
NATO members decided on Thursday to assume responsibility for the enforcement of a no-fly zone in Libya, but could not agree on taking full command of all military operations in the country.
Meanwhile, leaders of the 27 European Union states on Thursday issued a statement saying the EU stood ready to assist in building a new Libya "in cooperation with the United Nations, the Arab League, the African Union and others."
