Out of the Blue

We're off to Pennsylvania today to attend the funeral of my grandmother, which is this afternoon. In an unfortunate (and I am thinking unusual, but I'm unsure of that) bit of scheduling, the burial is planned for late morning tomorrow. Since MrsBlue's schedule will not permit us to stay over, I am considering making the trip again tomorrow for the follow-up, but I am still up in the air about that.

Go for it, man...nothing worse than regret.


So what's with all the wacky game titles today? We got Devil Whiskey and Bloody Magic. What next? Baby Tycoon?

Have a safe trip Blue. Hope all goes well.

When I die I don't won't a funeral. They are such sad affairs. I've told my relatives to just cremate me, pour me in the ocean and go play a round of golf.

Did anyone else get the area-64.com email?

Only 64 people will have the chance to purchase this package, which will include:

The highest performance AMD Athlon™ 64 processor, a top-of-the-line NVIDIA nForce3 Pro powered motherboard, and 1GB (2x512MB) of DDR400 memory from Kingston Technology.
Tickets to the invitation-only AMD Athlon™ 64 Processor Launch Event on Sept. 23, 2003.

Unprecedented access to this event, the AMD64 technology, and the masterminds behind it.

All-expense paid travel & accommodations for the event. (see site for full details.)

It’s true. Starting today, and continuing for 8 days, eight packages per day will be available for the purchase price of $640


Sounds like a good deal if you can get it. I may have to max my poor credit card.

Sounds like a scam to me...

edit: I don't mean to dash your hopes. I just get leery of emails asking for money...

I don't think so. HardOCP has an article about it. If it was a scam I think AMD would let them know.

I don't think so.

Amen.

It's too late now but what he could have done is go in separate cars and MrsBlue could have headed home by herself and Blue stay overnight.

Heck, I'm only 45 minutes away from there, he could have bunked at my place. As long as he didn't mind getting up at 5:40 AM.

Weirdest thing for me in the Area-64 dealy is that I don't remember ever signing up for something like that, and I'm honestly not interested in buying an Athlon processor at all. It's really strange, to me.

Did you ever sign up to win a free XP when they were doing their tour around the country? If so that's probably why you got an email.

Besides how incredibly ridiculous the actual subject matter of that article is... was the article some sort of bad pun competition with someone else? I think what passes as news reporting these days is figuring out as many bad puns as possible to say a simple thing.

If I was looking for a positive I would point to the performance of the Browns Defense. Holding the Colts to 9 points is pretty good.

I would bet that Warren died from an overdose of requests for this song.
