Stevia is an herb that is naturally sweet, it is quite a bit sweeter than sugar, but has virtually no calories.

One thing that has helped me with my carbs cravings is to have a spiced tea or a strong flavored tea with stevia,  I think stevia tastes terrible with coffee, but it works well with most teas.  I know that some research suggests that having artificial sweeteners can cause an insulin response, but there is also data that says the opposite.  All I know for sure is that it has worked well for me,

Cold turkey is tough with caffeine.  Its much easier to step down gradually over several days.  Those cold turkey headaches are terrible and the more coffee you drink the long they last.

>I think I like books too much to like audiobooks

Yeah, I get that.  Often what I'll do is listen to a book I have already read, but haven't in a while.  There is no way I could pay as much attention to audio as I can to a good real paper book, but being familiar with a book as I listen to it makes it good entertainment.

Sorry Dogboy.  I suppose it will eventually be explained, but it will never make sense.

If so you should love Librivox, its an archive of public domain audio books.

Sometimes news gets too heavy, but I've found a good story keeps me going when I'm doing something monotonous like optimizing a PPC campaign.

That's a large part of what attracts me to the open source movement and why I use free software as much as possible.

BTW anybody ever watch the BBC documentaries Connections by James Burke?  It shows how every great leap in human technology is built on previous work and much of it is derived by mistake.

I was thinking about twitter yesterday, trying to place it conceptually.  I think twitter fills the same place as an RSS feed, but for the technically challenged.

Agerhart and others, you may find this video interesting.  It was done by a nutrition researcher at Standford and he compared low carb Atkins like diets to low fat  and other diets,  The study also includes blood work and long term results.

The researcher is a vegan, and he was bothered by the results.  Basically, low carb wins in every way.
