Link of the Moment
Some people think funerals should carry a certain dignity. Peachtree Caskets begs to differ! Where else are you going to go for a casket with a lighthouse, or a golf course? ("Fairway to Heaven") Scroll all the way to the bottom for the best one of the batch.
Exercise for the Class: pretend you have little taste. What would you want on your custom casket? What graphic would represent your biggest interests in life? I'm afraid mine would have a picture of Mario or an Atari logo or something like that.
Figure out how to put large reproductions of photos of the deceased family and/or pets on caskets, and you'd make a mint.
Geek Link of the Moment
You know, I know it's not really a fair opinion for a User Interface Geek to have, but sometimes it seems that users are kind of dumb. It's pretty amazing what people don't realize about their environment...are techies that different?
Bushism of the Moment
"There's an old saying in Tenessee, we have it in Texas...you probably have it in Tenessee too......Fool me once, shame on......shame on you... ...but fool me-you can't get fooled again."
