Ran out of AA batteries at my house today, darn kids toys eat them faster than Rosie O'Donnell eats macaroons. So I jumped on circuit city's web site and placed an online order for in store pickup. The order consisted of one package of 48 Alkaline batteries, one package of 8 NiMH rechargeable, and one 15 minute rapid charger including 4 batteries. So I place my order and head over to the store on my lunch.
Interesting bit over at the consumerist. Seems Jamba Juice is hiding their ingredients and maybe engaged in some
questionable marketing. FTA;
We emailed Jamba Juice customer service and they provided the ingredients list for their "non-dairy
blend": Water, Grade A Nonfat Dried Milk, Grade A Whey, Grade A Whey Protein Concentrate,
Splenda, Sodium Alginate, Maltodextrin, Pectin, Carrageenan, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Hexametaphosphate, Natural
Well as mentioned in an earlier blog post, James Eric Jeffares was indeed convicted of (or coped a plea to) child molestation. Here is his Georgia Department Of Corrections ID

When I think about the fact that my daughter was in the same room with this creep I am just thankful as hell that my wife trusts no one and keeps a good eye on her.
Well I mentioned the Kathy Sierra issue in an earlier post and was very disappointed with how things have spiraled out of control.
The more I have read the less I am convinced this was anything but a bunch of trolls who had too much time and made some stupid comments. Now we have such idiotic feel good crap coming about as March 30: Participate in Stop Cyberbullying Day.
Something I have said for many years that
What do you think, do they make a profit off text messages?
Well its not surprising to see this kind of thing unfortunately. The sad part is that people are going to give in to it. Thats not any better than 'feeding the trolls' by arguing with them. Do I think Kathy should prosecute? Absolutely! Terroristic threats are now a felony where in the past some threats were at best ignored by police. What she shouldn't do is quit living. Doing so she is becoming the Boston of the blogosphere, overreacting to a kid with a keyboard much like that city did to some lite-brite like boxes and later even one of their own traffic counters.
So it begins. Secure in its now expanded monopoly, AT&T is beginning to curtail just what services you can access. Why? Well because they cost them too much.
A while back my wife joined several Atlanta based mother groups. She has really enjoyed the friends she has made there and some of the fun things they have done together. It seemed a safe place to meet people. The groups all tend to operate in a manner of checking out whomever joins and only meeting new folks in large public gathering to prevent problems with bad people.
Recently one of them let a man (Eric Jeffares AKA James Jeffares) join who has a criminal history thats just been discovered. Information about the guy is here
Give me a break. WTF are they thinking. Filesharing isn't a threat to national security, maybe a threat to a few antiquated business models...
Next will come, "filesharing support terrorists" or "this is your brain on filesharing"
