Out of the Blue

I wimped out in my resolve to be anti-social yesterday and busted out my semi-busted shovel to clear our walk. This was one of those cases of shifting perspective... when I've shoveled the walk in the past, I took much more note of those walks that hadn't been cleared, but once I decided not to clear ours, it struck me just how many neighbors actually do shovel theirs off. Ah, social pressure... the system at work.

A multimedia ad showed up here and drove people batty for a while yesterday (especially since it was possible to have it playing twice at the same time). I put in a request to have the noisy ad removed, and whole I did not receive a confirmation that it had, I have not seen it since a certain point yesterday, so here's hoping that's taken care of (particularly since it's unlikely that it can still be addressed for this weekend should it still be running -- apologies in advance if this does turn out to be the case.

The possible pain, suffering and sacrifice of discovery are by no means an excuse to remain ignorant.

The bartering of things sought earned are by a means which only little men can abide by and hope to achieve.
