Help an iPod Find Its Home

I saw this post this morning on David Berlind's blog at ZDNet. I have no illusions that anybody who reads this blog owns the iPod in question, or even knows the person who does, but I thought it sounded like an interesting experiment if nothing else.

Not the sharpest knife in the drawer...

You don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't spit into the wind, you don't make jokes at an airport security checkpoint, and you don't have a "who can write the scariest threat contest" on the Internet. Hey, dude, you apparently won!

Even in these days where political correctness and "message control" are in full effect, there is a line between speaking freely and being stupid. He appears to be the only prize winner in the "contest". He shouldn't go to prison for doing something stupid but let's hope this is the end of his 15 minutes.

Tigers and K-Wings and Snow. Oh My!

Has it really been that long since I posted something here? Boy, you'd think I had other things going on or something.

Anyway, how about those Tigers? A rematch of '68 (and '34 for that matter). My father-in-law has started getting our 8-year-old into watching baseball so I have a feeling we'll be watching as many of the games as possible. Unfortunately, MLB is still starting the games late enough to make it hard for younger school-age kids to be able to see them. And we won't see much of game 1 anyway because...

The Kalamazoo Wings (2005-06 Colonial Cup Champions) have their home opener tomorrow night. After their first championship in 26 years, they will raise the banner and unveil their rings. It should be a lot of fun, including indoor fireworks. Hope the baseball game doesn't keep the crowd down too much.

We had our first snow last week. It's gone and has been relatively warm this past week but we're heading into another cold spell and they are using the "s" word again for Sunday and early next week. It's way too early for snow, but that's Michigan weather for you. I missed it last week because I was in Puerto Rico but won't be so lucky this time.

Oh, and I get to go to Lotusphere again! Woohoo (or is it w00t?)!
