Hmm...looks like 'Sandman Slim' is going on my Amazon Wish List. I checked out the sample chapter, and I have to admit it looks pretty good. Thanks for the recommendation!

Got this downloaded to my Kindle for later reading...I just finished "The Day After" during my lunch break at work, and I have to admit it was one of the best pieces I've read in some time. Judging from the comments I've read thus far, I'd say my $10 was well spent in this case. Thanks so much for sharing this!

Me? I'm definitely a gadget nerd. I cut my teeth on the Tandy TRS-80 'microcomputer' - dual 5 1/4" drives, huge honking green monochrome monitor and clunky keyboard, all in one single unit. I've also worked on the Apple IIc/IIe series as well as the Commodore VIC 20/C64. Games? I owned the Atari 2600, the Nintendo GameBoy, and MERLIN (now THERE'S old school for you). These days, I'm all about open source. I gave up Windows a few years ago and embraced Linux (Ubuntu, to be precise) and haven't looked back. I browse the web with Firefox, read email with Evolution, and I'm in the process of learning to use the command line for virtually everything. I love the whole philosophy behind the open source community.

Woohoo! Glad to see you blogging on TypePad - I was afraid with all the problems Joomla was giving you that you wouldn't be posting for a while. Too bad TypePad doesn't have a BlackBerry app (or does it? I'd have to look through BlackBerry App World) - then you could post from whichever phone you had handy. You'll always be cool in our book, no matter what. @Sean - love the Fonz. I actually met Henry Winkler a number of years ago...fantastic man.

Talk about reliving the good old days. There was an arcade at the local mall I used to hang out at back when I was in my late teens/early 20s. Zaxxon, Missile Command, Galaga...those were some really great times.

As a USPS employee for the past 12 years, I can empathize with your frustration, Wil. I've heard many a customer complain about one or more of our regulations. I got my own copy of HDOOL two days ago, and it was in excellent condition. The envelope had a slight tear in one corner (perhaps an inch in length) but there was no other visible damage that I could see. I just finished the part where you wrote about comparing ice cream to sorbet - that's one thing I don't know that I've ever tried. I know what it is, but I can't recall ever having any.
