Note: My old computer crashed for good during this
quarter, so I ended up neglecting the web site for, oh, the entire
quarter as a result. Now that I have a brand new machine (which is
behaving, unlike the last one), the updates should be as frequent as
they were before. But, for now, this will have to do. Summaries and
links will be coming eventually--maybe not before the end of the
Millenium (or, if you're a purist, maybe well before the end of it),
but before the end of time as we know it. How about that?

Funny thing: when this was repeated in 2001, it was as our first program of the First Quarter 2002, even though there's going to be at least one more program after this during the last week of 2001. One of these days MNN will have to change its calendar in some sort of Pope Gregory-type shift and reduce one of their quarters by a week, or something, if they're ever going to even things out. This program is the result of one of our expeditions of years past, when we videotaped the streets of Manhattan with an older camera that didn't pick up the light as well at night as our camera does now. But I think it still has a certain amount of charm, if for no other reason than showing the darkened corners of the city in a quasi-lonely setting that, I believe, aptly represents how many people in the city feel this year. Who knows? Maybe we'll put together another one before the year is out.
