Just got an HP LaserJet 1020 printer. A huge portion of the stuff I print is just for the text. Articles, receptings from online purchases, documentation, etc… I got fed up with how long it takes to print this stuff on my Epson Photo printer and the cost of ink. I'm very impressed with the HP. It is very fast, not horribly loud and the toner is considerably less expensive per printed page. I also like the actual output more as well. Text just looks crisper and I'm not worried about it fading. Newegg happend to have it on sale the day I went to buy it for $120 including shipping. I'm already pleased with the purchase and I'll probably save that much from the reduce opperating cost in the first year. Two thumbs up.

Why do only cloths dryers have buzzers and not washing machines?

The National Archives and Google have teamed up to provide some amazing videos. I just watched a United News clip from 1942. Makes me shake my head a little again at how cool the internet is. This got me thinking about modern day gov. propaganda and if we will see more of it as the War on Terror continues in perpetuity.

Heard an NPR interview this morning with Josh Rouse about his album that is about to come out. Really liked both the interview and the music. Looking forward to the release. There are a couple sample tracks at the link if you have Real Player installed (which I don't). A favorite quote from the interview: "The best way to learn Spanish is to take a Spanish lover".

I just looked up my site on the internet archive and looked up my site. Here are two grabs from July 21, 2001 and Dec. 3, 2001. I had a bunch of formats on the home page that updated every few seconds.

Looking around freevibe.com (the federal government's anti-drug web site) you can see what will happen to you if you smoke pot. Be sure to watch all three outcomes for each scenario so you will know all the possible outcomes. Another good read is "Why People Take Drugs".

I think it might be a moral imparative that I do something with "Amazon Web Services". After all, we have the same initials….
