Technical Difficulties With Automated Blog Posts

[20100131] The blog is still refusing mail from gmail. I've stopped the forwarders. When the mail server stops trying to deliver mail (probably by the 5th). I'll try another strategy.
I'm trying to find the equilibrium between Google News Alerts, Gmail and Blogger to permit automated posting of Google News Alerts to the blog so I can have them for reference and work on other things. My goal is not to focus on one news topic, but to have the varied topics in the news feeds automatically posted in the blog daily or weekly because I can capture more unique data that way.

Don't we have a choice now to not smoke based on the knowledge that interferes with our mind? Once we make the choice to smoke, we are going to experience these things as part of the consequence of that choice.

By the way is our mind wandering like having an out of body experience? And where does the mind go anyway?

Hi rich thats fine as an argument for not smoking,
but did you know that you can't tell when your brain is running low on glucose? it just does and your mental performance goes in the tank.

biological bases for behavior and decision making is only as good as the material it runs on.

thinking is not supernatural, it is biological. therefore so is freewill and decision making.
