Jeffrey LewisFun With FCNL

I love the FCNL Nuclear Calendar. I like it so much, one of our amazing readers created a program that scrapes the static FCNL page and create an RSS feed from the contents.

So I was amused when a colleague noticed this little entry in the current calendar:

Feb. or March North Korea tests its Taepodong-2 ballistic missile (possible). Musudan-ri, North Korea

Funny. Very funny.


  1. Stephen Young (History)

    Not to complain, merely to note – or maybe merely to highlight my ignorance – but the RSS Feed link provides outdated data from Sept 08 thru the inauguration:
    Is it busted, or am I techno-illiterate, or both?

  2. Jeffrey Lewis (History)

    That’s important information.

    Not sure what the problem is. Will get on it.

  3. Major Lemon (History)

    It’s probably not busted and Stephen probably isn’t techno-illiterate (whatever that means).

  4. Yale Simkin (History)

    The calender is e-mailed every Monday when Congress is in session by signing in here

  5. Page van der Linden (History)

    That’s awesome.

    I also noticed something else that made me laugh in a cynical way.

    “Machiavelli Center for Cold War Studies”

    Here’s another reason to love the FCNL-NC:

    “March 31 Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory completes the National Ignition Facility. Livermore, CA.

    March Al Franken is declared the winner in the Minnesota Senate race (estimate).”
