So everything appears up and stable. I thought it was dead, but it's alive. So I canceled the order for one of the computers and just kept the order for the godbox to use for IAM development.

Here's how you buy a computer in Toronto: Figure out what you want, shop it around from store to store to get the best price, and eventually walk away with a computer where you're getting shoddy service because the price is too low, and the store isn't making any money either, so everyone walks away screwed over.

Here's how you buy a computer in Tweed (well, I bought it in Picton actually): Figure out what you want. Go to the store and give them your list. They give you the fairest price they can. Everyone walks away happy. I don't mind paying $50 extra for a computer if I know that (a) I'm getting better service, and (b) I'm supporting a local business.

One of the biggest problems out here is the lack of support for small business. The average person really doesn't give a damn, and will buy from a mega factory store, rather than a small business that's been there forever. I don't know why they can't see that those actions represent the death of the community they care for.

Anyway, I should have mentioned these a few days ago (you can get the best BMEshop updates on badseeds' page of course), but Rachel just picked up a Kids Club Hoody from BMEshop yesterday and it's really nice… We should have made light coloured hoodies a long time ago. Anyway, I'll be doing a HUGE BME update, but first I'm going to write the docs/specs for the anonymous comm system, so watch for those later today.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
