Monkey business

Yesterday I went to a climbing gym for the first time with two coworkers.  It was a lot of fun, although definitely different from the other sort of climbing I've done in the past.  Today my fingertips and shoulders hurt in a not-unpleasant way.

Also, I just read an article in a Japanese children's newspaper about a filesharing program called Winny.  It read like you might imagine the MPAA would would write an article aimed at American kids.  "Winny is very popular, and it sounds like fun, except it's very dangerous!  The Winny network is full of viruses that will send your name, address, and secret diary to everyone in your class, and even anti-virus software can't totally protect you!  Also, if you trade copyrighted movies and software, you will get arrested."
