I'm wondering if anyone is interested in me publishing these playlists of the catalog that is soon to be coming to your by snail mail. Is this any more convenient than the physical CD? Do people prefer some other format rather than m3u ?

How to set the date on the Reminder Assistant
Out of the box the clock is factory set at January 1, 2009. With the back of the clock facing you, locate the third button from the left. This button is the mode button. The button to the right of the mode button is the up button and to the right of that is the down button.
To set the date, locate the mode button. Please remember you must act quickly in setting any selection on the clock. If you do not move quickly the clock will automatically return to the original factory setting.
Press the mode button five times. This will select the year on the clock. Since it was already factory set at 2009, press the up button one time. Quickly return to the mode and press it one time. This will select the month. Press the up button one time to set the month for February. Quickly press the mode button one time. This will select the day. Press the up button for the number of days in the month.
Always remember you must move quickly to set the features manually on the clock.
You can also press down on the top of the clock to get the clock to respond to you.

Accessibility BarCamp Seattle Logo
Andrew has "created a logo for our event. the typical wheelchair icon isn't representative of all disabled people. particularly as it pertains to web accessibility. In contrast, my logo is meant to represent the 4 groups that web accessibility serves - blind, deaf, physically impaired, and cognitively impaired."

Busting the KitKat Crunch
KitKat has a commercial running now in which they exaggerate the sound of the crunch. This is a recording of an actual KitKat bar breaking and being crunched. What do you think, is the commercial an exaggeration or not? Sorry I can't find a youtube of the actual commercial.

My suggestion for a logo for Radioman
This is an animated image which shows a door opening and spooky eyes and a ghoast comming out. It is on a black background so it will go well as the icon on your page. Unfortunately i can't make an avatar out of it because i don't have the time to animate it. I can however put up just a picture of a door.

I'm hoping to use this picture upload as my Avatar for posting to other rooms.
Law and order
My 2 ultimate faves in this are Lenny Brisco played by the late Jerry Orbach, and Jack MCCoy. The eatem up chewem up spitem out District attorney. Lenny just had this way with the purps. The comments he made at the opening of the show, had you laughin'.
