No, that would be me. If we had kids, there would be much mournful fiddle playing in their ancestry.

I love mournful fiddle playing. Some of it made it to my LOC submission.

Me too!  Have you heard of the band Moishes Bagel? They do some amazing Balkan-inspired music:

I saw them live about 6 months ago and they were incredible.

I'm sitting at my desk and eating my lunch when one of my co-workers (a white guy in his 30s) comes by to show me a picture. "My friend sent me this on Facebook and I printed it out because I thought it was so comical." So I look and it's a picture of the president with a sideways cap and bling and a bucket of fried chicken and probably other racist shit that I don't even remember what. I said, "That's terrible, I don't want to see that. Get it off my desk." And he says, "I just thought it was funny because it's Obama and they made him all ghetto." I just said, "There's nothing at all funny about that," and he walked away.

Now he's all mad at me. Oh well.
Do... do people really find that kind of stuff funny anymore? I mean I guess I can't expect everyone to be PC, but dammit if you get out of high school still thinking racial stereotypes(especially those kind) are okay... like at all, you are fail. I've said some dumb ass things before, but even I have never achieved that level of dumbfuckery.

I'm guessing your office is in some way affiliated with NASCAR, or perhaps Propane and Propane accessories.

I know, right? Last thing you'd expect in a Manhattan law firm. And the thing that gets me is that this guy was born and raised in Manhattan. You'd think he would know better.

Great another reason to find myself hoping the Mayan Calendar theory comes true.  Just blow the world up, it's FUBAR anyway.

Your avatar is a perfect reaction to that story, Dan.

I went to New York City on the 14th and when I left my Metro Card still had some balance on it.  I think it was enough for two subway rides.  So I put it up on Craigslist under the "free stuff" section for Manhattan.  Within 15 minutes of the posting, I got 9 responses.  I'm surprised it went that quickly, though I guess I shouldn't be.  There's a pool of millions of people who could use that thing. 

I felt kinda bad sending the E-mails to the 8 people who didn't get the card.  I'd said "first come, first served" in the posting, but I guess I could have rethought that.  But by then it was too late and I'd already notified the winner that I was sending the card.

OK so, is there a source, I assume there is but I can't seem to find one, where I can obtain digital camera components, specifically the sensor that essentially takes the place of the film in a digital camera. The specific sort of sensor I want to track wdown is a medium format one.

I don;t want to buy a digital back for a medium format camera, I want to make a simple one myself but I'm having trouble finding where I can buy the components.
