Subject: Nuclear Bomb Effects Computer (new animation now online)

August 30th, 2007

Dear Readers,

I've posted a new animation called Nuclear Bomb Effects Computer.  It is an analog spin-dial "computer" from the 1960s.  Also included is an image of an MK-17 nuclear bomb, the Ionizing Radiation poster, and a list of the 300 largest cities in the world.

The animation is FREE to peace activists.  However, if any military organizations wish to use it for targeting purposes, the cost is $10,000,000.00 per user.

The purpose of the original Nuclear Bomb Effects Computer was to allow soldiers to calculate the effects of a single bomb blast on a city.  Effects include such things as burst eardrums, overpressure, injuries from impacts with hard surfaces, etc..

Here is the URL for the new animation:

Tomorrow (Friday, October 31st, 2007) I go in for my bladder surgery at 11:30 am (surgery is scheduled for 90 minutes later).  We'll let you know how it went as soon as it's over, but I'm told that sometimes it turns into a longer stay, so don't worry if no emails come through for a few days.  It won't prove a thing!

Lastly, THANK YOU to the dozens of people who wrote (and my apologies for not responding individually -- YET).  Thank you for your prayers, concerns, encouragement, and suggestions.  I feel loved and I am in good spirits.
