Is Zidane on Yahoo Messenger?

I usually do not logon to Yahoo Messenger unless I reboot my laptop. This usually happens once in 10 days. Today was one of those days and hence I was on YM. There I saw the following status message for a friend of mine
"why Zidane?"

Seeing this, I started a chat with this friend of mine. Here is the transcript, of course, without revealing my friend's name and/or YM ID

AbiSurd: The head is for hitting the ball, not someone's chest
AbiSurd: *WHATEVER* be the case,
AbiSurd: *WHATEVER* be the provocation
Friend: yeah
Friend: agreed
AbiSurd: so remove the status message
Friend: i want zidane to see it and answer

I could not help myself and was LOL.

Discovery finds broken foam, still GO to launch

I have recently been reading this book "Will your Next Step be Fatal". Authored by Robert Mittelstaedt, the Dean of Carey School of Busines, the book talks about the mistakes made by organizations large and small that proved fatal and how one can avoid them. One of the storices revolved around NASA and its better known disasters, Columbia and Challenger. The resent news of finding broken foam on the shuttle reminded me of the 'culture' of NASA for 'launch unless proven broken' that led them to these disasters. The author even suggested replacing the whole upper management of NASA to get rid of this 'culture'.

I wish the best of luck to the 'passengers' of Discovery.
