5/24    Richard Biggs (played Dr. Franklin on Babylon 5) died this week at age
        41 (unknown cause--likely a massive stroke or aneurysm).  He leaves
        behind a wife and two children.  There are auctions on eBay to go to

        \_ This makes news on the motd vs. Alistair Cook's passing a couple
           months previous?
           \_ Most sodans never heard his "Letters From America" off BBC News.
           \_ A sudden death of a young person is always more news.
        \_ Why does an actor's family need donations?
           \_ Well, he's not a big time rich actor.  I suppose they aren't
              doing much better than middle class.  Although why you'd
              want to donate money for ANYONE's funeral, I don't know.
              \_ It's a Japanese tradition to contribute funds to offset the
                 costs of a funeral for a relative or close associate; It's
                 called "koden".  Not that Biggs' family is Japanese, but
                 there's precedent.  In Western funerals, people send 50-100
                 dollars of flowers, why not send money to help pay for the
                 casket instead or for the costs of burial/cremation?

7/31    Hi, I am looking for a monitoring recommendation for use at home
        with my MacMini and as a second monitor for my Airbook. At this
        point I dont want to buy a fancy Apple monitor -- will probably
        wait for then to announce a new one -- but price doesnt really
        matter [office buy], but it doesnt seem like there is any need
        to spend more than $500? Historically I've just gotten a decent

3/18    Why is a genuine Mac Book charger $60 when it's only $20 on eBay?
        I failed to see a difference in quality.
        \_ Why does popcorn cost so much at the movies? Why do car values
           halve the minute you take it off the lot? Why do you suddenly
           pay less when you become a senior citizen? There are economic
           reasons for just about every pricing puzzle.

5/23    I'm seeing a bunch of old German copy stuff w/ Swastika on it
        selling on eBay. Doesn't eBay ban Swastika? Or I got it confused
        with other stuff?
        \_ These are only banned in Germany.
        \_ and in France.

1/26    Bought my XSi kit with 18-55 and 55-250 for only $750. The price
        has since then jacked up to about $950 because of US $ and
        the end of Canon's $100 rebate. I'll be selling it back on
        eBay for a profit. Expect Canon to release something completely
        new and better for this year's PMA. Canon rules.

1/14    I'm an eBay power seller. In the past couple months I've had
        a bunch of people claiming that they never received their items
        and they're all from the AL, MO area. I'm going to start adding
        tracking (75 cents more) which will eat up my profit margin
        significantly since the items I sell are really cheap (sub $10
        and $5 items and eBay+PayPal are already eating up 10% of fees).

        Japan rules!
        \_ Fifteen years ago I worked there for seven months.  I miss Japan!
           (I'm Chinese immigrant.)  More facts:
           - Besides cold drinks, vending machines also carry hot drinks like
             hot tea and corn soup.  And they are actually hot instead of warm.

8/29    OC turning liberal, maybe there is hope for CA afterall:
        http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/30/us/politics/30orange.html
        \_ and the state is slowly turning conservative. Meg 2010!
           \_ We will see. Seems unlikely.
        \_ Yeah, because CA sure has a problem with not enough dems in power!
           If only dems had been running the state for the last 40 years!

7/20    Is jblack still on? What about the rest of the pro-war cheerleaders?

        \_ War is fought for the glory of generals and the economics of the
           war machine.  Looking for "justifications" for it is like looking
           for sense in the necronomicon.  Just accept it and move on.

        \_ she has a hook nose and face is a bit too V shaped.  Body is ok.
