The Geek Shall Inherit the Earth:

Ah, those useless obsessions which have fascinated me since I was a kid. I wonder if anyone can tell me what the following cities have in common:

  • Huntsville AL
  • Bakersfield CA
  • Fresno CA
  • Peoria IL
  • Fort Wayne IN
  • South Bend IN
  • Springfield MA
  • Elmira NY
  • Youngstown OH
  • Scranton/Wikes-Barre PA

Put your guesses on the Message Board if you like. I’ll post the answer in a day or two…

I think it may be starting to even out some. I hope so. At least I’m sleeping like a baby…

Technology Sucks:

The Dish DVR has already crashed, taking with it about thirty epsiodes of “The Addams Family” which Mark hadn’t yet dubbed to DVD, not to mention a Cure special and a couple of “Fillmore” episodes which would have completed my collection. It’s the power supply, I’m told. Of course, there will be no effort by them to recover the data on the hard drive — not to mention a stiff penalty for us if we try it ourselves. We’re in a “replace, don’t repair” world these days, after all…
