If you haven’t tried it yet, you should really give Froogle a look. I’m currently looking to buy an LCD monitor and I checked the usual suspects, Pcworld and Tomshardware for reviews, Pricegrabber for prices, but due to lack of inertia, I never thought to try Froogle.

Outsourcing is not the Devil

politics suggest edit

Now I’m every bit as much the bleeding heart liberal as the guy to my left, but I have to say that I believe the outcry against offshoring and outsourcing is purely a reactionary response to the current bad economy.

music suggest edit

I’ve been on a real Anthony Pappa kick lately. Right now I’m listening to Resolution CD 2 Track 12, “Solstice” at home and am blown away at how rich and full it sounds on my piddly Altec Lansing computer speakers.
