Meeting the Lender Today

personal suggest edit

We’re meeting the lender today to make the final preparations for the big loan. I thought college was expensive, but this is on a whole ‘nother level. For you out there who don’t live in California, I’m basically buying a small 1000 sq ft 2 bedroom 2.5 bathroom condo townhouse for probably the amount you could buy a mansion in Kentucky, or a four bedroom house in Seattle. This market is crazy, but we’re not ready to leave L.A. just yet. So it’s love it or buy it.

burningman suggest edit

I can almost smell the smoky embers. Burning Man tickets have already gone on sale. I tried to buy them in the mad rush when they first came online at a discounted price to no avail. Their servers basically decided to go on a vacation with the overload of requests. I had a vision of one of them Japanese subway cars where they have to shove people inside.

I’ve seen the future and it is good. Adam Kinney has a demo Rss Aggregator for Longhorn at his site, http://www.adamkinney.com/. It’s very barebones right now, but you can just see the potential for how beautiful this will and does look. What struck me was how nice the text of a blog entry looked in the text window. Nice work adam!
