Just purchased an iPod nano

_DSC0006.jpg

I just bought an iPod nano and plan on selling an unused free 20GB iPod I received. I'm loading it up with content but so far just like all the other reviewers I'm pretty impressed. I didn't plan on buying one but I was taking someone else to the Apple store to purchase one and didn't realize it was so cheap.

I bought it because:
* I don't listen to all 30GB of music on my 3rd gen iPod
* It's so small and looks very nice
* Color screen
* Handles photos

The picture is crappy because I had not removed the plastic from the front while it was updating.

Justice Rehnquist has passed

CNN.com - Chief Justice Rehnquist has died - Sep 3, 2005

First and very foremost, he deserves a ton of credit for serving the nation up until he died.

Secondly, be careful what you pray for. A couple of weeks ago on the Daily Show on Comedy Central there was a snippet of Pat Robertson praying for a second vacancy to open up on the Supreme Court. Well, it has happened.

On Katrina

vowe dot net :: It keeps you wondering: " dot net communicate :: collaborate :: commemorate It keeps you wondering by Volker Weber I just heard on CNN that one of the aids from Europe the US adminstration is asking for is oil. Why is that? To keep the price of gas down in the US. Let's do some quick math. I believe the price is hitting 3 US$ a gallon in the US. Google tells me that 1 gallon is 3.78 litres and $3 is 2.42 Eur. That would be 2.42 Eur/ 3.78 litre = 0.64 Eur a litre. In Germany gas sells for 1.40 to 1.60 Eur a litre. That is $6.55 to $7.49 a gallon. — Posted 2005-09-02 19:04

Aid is finally reaching a few of those who are in desperate need in New Orleans. I've been glued to interdictor and it's amazing to hear about the things that are going on in the city. A lot fell through the cracks and the post-mortem will be interesting. I've thought about posting housing availability to hurricanehousing.org but worry about issues like people taking advantage or being criminals. I'm not sure if it's cautiousness or being judgemental. I'll figure something out.
