If you’re getting a little tired of classic Christmas music, you might try The Christmas Lounge streaming internet radio station. I found it last year and I really enjoy the modernization of all the songs I grew up with. So far I’d have to say my absolute favorite song is Cathedral Brass – Joy to [...]

Just thought I’d throw out a link to winkflash. Sarah and I got some photos made of the wedding and used them. We were pleased with the results. We first ordered a small batch with and without their “image enhancement” to compare and we both agreed that with image enhancement looked better. Also, I thought [...]
I’ll try to post some interesting things around the web I’ve found that do a good job of explaining what’s been going on recently. This American Life, The Giant Pool of Money.

He’s saying we can change a law that lets these mortgages become marketable again…the “mark to market” law in Sorbanes Oxley, I believe.

Just read the comic introducing Google Chrome, Google’s new web browser. It definitely looks very interesting, from both a user’s and developer’s perspective. Chrome is designed from the ground up to work with online web apps faster and more safely. There’s supposed to be a public beta later today, so I’m looking forward to trying [...]
Mark Hurst echos my comments on storing your data in the cloud.
I found this amusing post on DealNews. It’s a great deal: Oil fell to $118 a barrel yesterday. That’s $30 off its mid-July peak and the best deal we’ve seen on oil in three months. Features include light, sweet crude.
This doesn’t come around often, and it’s how I got my tablet, which I love. Dealnews link.
