In many ways I find that it cures the "hangover" when you've finished a day and feel mad at yourself when you don't realize where it went. When you make that decision at the front of the day doing the difficult prioritization, completing the list at the end of the day is more satisfying than anything else. IF you got knocked off your schedule, it probably wasn't your fault. TIMESHEETS! :)
The Newtown police are saying they'll release more tomorrow morning. I'll update my page sometime this weekend.
You know I've played with Google health and thought that might be interesting, but there's a weird problem. All of my Google accounts are now based on Google Apps for Domains, and those don't allow use of Google Health, presumably for privacy reasons.
I've started to see old routers pop up in Goodwill stores now too. I keep the DD-wrt "compatible router wiki" bookmarked on my phone, and look to see if the routers for sale for $5-$8 are compatible. dd-wrt has an infrastructure mode that lets you use these additional routers as repeaters. Considering a $80 repeater to perfect the coverage in your home (or with your neighbors) sounds like something to consider, but to do it for $5? That's not a decision at all, that's easy.

While I agree that price is an issue for these products, the fact that you're one of the people behind NPEngine but didn't disclose it undermines your credibility on that otherwise true statement. I think the comparison of Ning/FB to Convio/BB/NetComm/Avectra is not a fair one. They are different tools for different jobs. Congrats on the launch of NPEngine, and I hope you can build a credible base of users in the next year to offer nonprofits more choice.
