The LG Saga Continues

I called LG today to find out the status on my CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive. I got some good news and bad news. The bad news is that they haven't mailed out my drive yet. The good news is that since my model is discontinued, they are upgrading me to the latest model, the GCC-4520BI. The only difference seems to be that it is a 52x/24x/52x drive whereas the old one was 48x/24x/48x. Hopefully that also means that I'm going to get a fresh warranty. They said that they are out of stock right now, but he figured that I should have it no later than Christmas (although he said they could be in today). We'll see.

The Master comments: You are so never going to get that drive A.T. They're just going to lead you on for a year or two until they get bored of it :-)

NFL Week #15 So Far

With one game left (tonight's game is safe, methinks), I am 13-2 while Eeyore is 12-3. I would have been 14-1 if I had not changed my Raiders pick to the Ravens at the last minute. It also looks like unless Amani Toomer suddenly gets a touchdown or two or Ricky Williams blows out both knees early tomorrow, my Wombats are going to go down in flames, one game shy of the championship. Two losses all year, and I advance no further in the playoffs than I did last year.

Saddam in American Custody

U.S. special forces took Saddam Hussein into custody today. While this won't end the terrorist attacks in Iraq, it deals a crushing blow to Saddam loyalists. Perhaps this could be the beginning of stability in this part of the Middle East. At the very least, he will have to answer for the crimes he committed against his own people.
