It really isn't as evil and malicious as some people make it out to be. ISP's are a for-profit business. Rolling out ultra-high bandwidth consumer connectivity costs lots of money. Verizon spent billions (10-20 billion) on FIOS, and the cable companies are investing many hundreds of millions on DOCSIS 3.0, which should boost cable speeds up near Verizon's fiber. That kind of investment will obviously be slow to roll out. I had no faster than 56k modem at home for 5...
The jacket is still for sale.
I just received an email that my order of 1 polo and 1 shirt has shipped. I will update the thread when it arrives.
A friend forwarded me an email from Thrillist.com about this MTM deal in Chicago. Nicholas Joseph is doing a buy-one-get-one-free deal for their custom shirts through May 15. All you have to do is mention Thrillist.com. I have never heard of them, but their website looks like they do the basic MTM shirt for between $120 and $160. Two shirts for $120 isn't a terrible deal, so I'll probably go check this out. I have had shirt problems with Hemrajani, Chan, and Jantzen...
I just hope they stay in one time period for a little while. All that jumping around felt like I was watching reruns of Quantum Leap.
If this is the kind of media hype and attention that is necessary to get people to secure their computers and identify, then I'm happy. However, the root causes of this "outbreak" hasn't really gotten the attention it should. People think they are safe because they run windows update once a year. In reality, most malicious code is being executed against the web browser. Running a secure and up to date web browser is your real defense. Also, the myth of Mac users being...
I use really like Lux, the Risk clone. Games can be as quick or as long as you want them to be, and you can tweak all the rules. The customization to the style of play and map also adds some variety. I also enjoy the German style board games like Settlers of Catan and Carcassone which offer similar strategy but with a different gameplay and goal.
I still have these items for sale.

He's right behing Jeter an A-Rod who have been playing about 5 years longer. Ichiro may go down a a better all around player than Henderson...am I crazy by saying that? Ichiro is a threat to make it to first base. Henderson was a threat to make it to home plate.
