Thought of the Day - Make a difference

75802-1734819-thumbnail.jpg 'Simonela'...is that somehow related to that ass on American Idol?  I know this story is a bit late, this was floating around my briefcase and I forgot to scan it until now.

Here's a great use of technology.  There's a young guy who's trying to break into local politics...using a modern pitch he's appealing to a nationwide pool of people to help him win.  Of course it helps if you find XKCD funny.  I gave him a few bucks to defeat the old dinosaur. 

In other news, I continue to struggle sometimes with technology.  I have a Creative Zen since I love subscription music, but sometimes it irks me.  The video converter is awful.  It doesn't convert anything...fails constantly.  I am trying to use the Creative tool that allows you to subscribe to various free 'channels' but none of them can be transferred from the Creative channels, without conversion, and most conversions fail.  I just want it to work.

And Yahoo is getting out of the music business.  They just made me transfer my subscription to Rhapsody.  We'll see how this works.  Might be time to get an iPod.  But I really want subscription music b/c I don't want to spend thousands of dollars on a music collection.
