Rise of the Green Machine

This is a great article about hybrid cars. It seems that, though various auto makers are embracing the hybrid model, Toyota has the most-developed hybrid engine since its Prius has been around for eight years.

Also... my wife and I are getting a Prius! We put our name on the waiting list at a local dealer not long ago, and I just got a call today that a new high-mileage wonder will be waiting for us sometime in the first week of May.

I can't wait to have it! My wife (the environmental scientist) is going to get to drive it to work, but I'll be able to take it out on nights and weekends.

The Geek Code desperately needs updating, but in any case here's mine (as of 2010-02-28):

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
