So sad about the earthquake in the Indian Ocean. It's the biggest earthquake that's happened in my whole life! How scary... I can't believe how many people are dead from the tsunamis. However, even with a tragedy of this scale, I am able to temper my shock with a small infusion of geeky pleasure: Meigan told me she gets USGS email notification of quakes over a certain magnitude. Hey, I wanna sign up too!
