Woo hoo – there’s nothing better than Labor Day weekend. Well, except for Memorial Day, which is the unofficial start of summer, instead of the end of summer. All I know is, when it’s Sunday night and you don’t care what time you’re up ’til, that’s a good thing. Then again, I do that most Sundays. Never mind, you know what I mean.
As it’s this wonderful August 31st, you should remember to log into the “Do Not Call” registry by the end of the day if you don’t want to miss out on the October 1st rollout of the list to telemarketers! As reminded by Dave over at freespeech.com.
Good link over at metafilter about Holiday Inn’s Towel Amnesty Day, and to boot, they’re even running a contest about your “story” about why you have the towel. How funny is that?
Anyone else out there make regular use of the Open Directory Project? I know most folks use Yahoo!’s directory, but I tend to prefer this one, as it seems a little more user-driven. I think it’s taken a hit since the general dearth of Netscape and the loss of many search engines. I know the first website I created a few years back, when portals were still popular, had included a directory based on software created to utilize this Open Directory. Check it out if you haven’t before done so.
Last night I did a reinstall of Windows 2000 on my machine. The best part was when I finally got my broadband connection up, I did all the critical updates and such for my computer. I couldn’t believe that by putting in some updates, I created the need after restarting and reloading the Windows Update website, I actually needed more updates to cover for the updates I’d already done. How screwed up is that?
