How to Practice Law in a Barn

New Orleans attorney Jack Deverin wrote an interesting article in December that I just ran across. "How to Practice Law in a Barn" describes how he continued his law practice in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. In it, he provides valuable information on business continuity in the the wake of disaster. Check it out.

Henley's Twentieth Century Book of Recipes, Formulas and Processes

I found this book today via Jerry Pournelle's site.

It's the sort of reference you'd want around after a TEOTWAWKI event. Or just to learn how to mix up stuff in the garage sure to piss off the Feds. ;-)

The PDF version is a facsimile of the c.1914 original. It's rather large at over 800 pages and 116 MB but whoever created the PDF also OCRed the file, so it's searchable. If you have a slower connection or an older computer you'll probably be better off with the .txt version, which is only 3.5MB.

I may print it out, two pages to a sheet, and stick it in a binder.
