Peter has sent us a few letters from boot camp; he says he is "not too miserable" and that most of the sergeants don't know his name, which is a good thing. His battery has a facebook page, and some pictures of him have been posted so far.
A few cool things are happening on the internet. Dutch for English speakers is now in Beta on Duolingo! And Daniel brought this cool site to my attention: akinator. Pick a character - any character, and play 20 questions with the computerized genie. It's fun to stump it, but it doesn't happen often.
