Monday, April 18th, 2005

Yes, moving. The past couple weeks have seen a frenzied Craigslist search for housing, along with packing, organizing, all while still putting in full days (or worse) at the office.

Not content to waste the public’s time and money with an appalling and interminable Schiavo-grandstanding binge, and meddling in trivia like the baseball steroid “scandal,” now they want to dictate what file formats music fans can download. Good for Apple for boycotting this farce.
