Don't miss Granville Island & Stanley Park, including the aquarium. There are a few really great Indian restaurants on Robson street west of Burrard. One place I always spend lots of time whenever I visit Vancouver is Charlie's Music City on Granville just south of Robson. They have one of the best collections of used CDs anywhere.

"Funeral" & "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" aren't on your list?

Bill Prady? That explains a lot. He co-founded a company called The Small Computer Company (best known for Tandy's Profile database & filePro). His co-founder was HOWIE WOLOWITZ, who was also the president of the company! I used to work for them & Howie was quite a character. He smoked dope almost continuously & managed to sneak some jokes into our source code, like naming certain features for his parents.

Aww... Freddie seems like such a cool cat. I don't know what I'd do without my 2 cats.

Yet another state is cooler than California now. What's up with that? I'm not surprised by Amendment 2 in Florida, but Prop 8 never should have passed and shouldn't have been upheld.

Everyone I know in Canada has a cottage they go to for the holidays. Maybe she's Canadian :)

WTF? Vocal Support? I nearly spewed my coffee when I read that statement.

When they say "make you larger" in that commercial, does anyone else always add "and one pill makes you small" :)

Check for log files or caches that suddenly got huge and are eating up disk space. Something like whatsize or baseline will help you find unusually large files. When something like that happened to me a few months ago, it turned out to be Pukka's cache, which grew to about 15GB (a bug which they've since fixed).

Really sad. She was one of my favorite Star Trek people. I can't imagine the Enterprise without her voice.

Such a large camera sort of defeats the purpose. I'd rather have something pocket-sized when I don't want to carry my D90. For now, I just use my iPhone. I also have a CoolPix L5, which I rarely bother with because it's so slow that I miss a lot of shots.

I still can't believe it. I never thought I'd see this happen & I've never been this proud of my country in my life. Even two days later, I still get all verklempt and start crying when I read about it, see pictures, or hear excerpts of his speech.

I voted by mail a few weeks ago. Today I went out canvassing, as I did every weekend since Oct. 11. I knocked on at least 100 doors in two shifts today.

I still prefer Parallels & VMware. Only a few Windows applications will work in WINE/CrossOver and it has an ugly X11-based Win98 user interface.

I just got a D90 yesterday, upgrading from a D40x. The D90 is amazing. I'm really thrilled about being able to use auto-focus with my 50mm/f1.8 prime lens, which the D40x couldn't do.
