The Vancouver Scrum

On the move!

Agh! You’re still here? My new site and weblog, is now up and running; new posts are building up over there, never to be mirrored here. Go! What are you waiting for? All the stuff worth keeping has been migrated over to the new server, and I don’t anticipate making any more posts here.

Bloggers and webmasters: Update your links! Simply replace with in your blogrolls or bookmarks to point to the new site. Old posts will remain on this server for as long as the people at Blogger/Google allow them to remain; unfortunately, I’m not going to bother to come up with any way of converting permalinks on this blog to their corresponding posts on the new site. Yes, I plead laziness. I also realize the irony of switching away from Blogger just it starts to add features that the demanding blog nerds insist upon.

Thanks for reading and linking, and see you over at!

SPD holds on in razor-thin election

Germany's Social Democrats look to have barely survived Sunday's German election. The fact that they've done so is a minor miracle; two months ago, the Christian Democrats, led by Edmund Stoiber, lloked to have a lock on the 2002 election.

Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder's skillful response to this year's floods, among the worst in recent memory, combined with his anti-war against Iraq stance were integral to closing the gap to the Christian Dems.

The Social Democrats' traditional coalition with the Greens will give them a three-seat majority in parliament.
