New cell for $19 per month I get five hours and can add Web browsing and Text for not much more. Not as cheap as Tracfone...wait a minute, $125 for nothing isn't cheap.

"In like a lion, out like a lamb?" So far, March has lived up to the old saw.

I wonder if 64-bit consumer computing would have happened without AMD's push?

Maybe three years later? I may be missing something but the only tangible benefit might be being able to use much more RAM.

Come to think of it, does Microsoft owe AMD a gift of gratitude? Starting with Vista, RAM by the bucket load became mandatory.

They look and feel like little one and a half inch tall white candles. But they're not heavy enough and produce light from an LED that's inside them. They even have a little wick that looks like it's been burned. What will those Chinese folks think of next?

Can't make my mind up, is "Queen of Hearts" by Juice Newton a great song or is it just catchy as hell?

Many Americans probably don't know that "Helping police with their inquiries" in Brit Speak means "in jail with a nasty clang of the door" in American talk.

Whereas "gray bar, stony lonesome and hoosegow" are probably understood by most folks on the right side of that big cold ocean.

Could my car insurance co. be out to screw me? Seems they don't like my Nexis-Lexis credit report. The Big Three say I'm as good as gold.

Maybe hiding whatever the Nexis-Lexis detrimental credit report has to say... what do you want to bet that there's no derogatory information? The car insurance people know that it's unlikely that a customer will cough up the hundreds of dollars needed to access Nexis-Lexis? We'll see.

Insurance companies often behave like scammers.

Quick to take your money, but claiming can be like trying to extract blood from a stone.
