Seeking low cost, high volume van February 7, 2006 2:31 pm

Anyone know someone at a car dealership looking to move a program van or some large capacity vehicle at low cost? I missed an opportunity to get a 12 seater van for $4000 and now I’m practically in tears over it. I would jump at a 9-12 person van right now. Anything that seats 7 or more is what we need. We need something sooner than later so keep your eyes peeled. Thanks!

Wow! I just received a spam email titled "Re: H N T"! No, it didn’t originate from Osbasso. It was selling Viagra (as if married people need that! "Look honey!" "Dear, isn’t that going to get in the way while you paint the walls?").

Joss Whedon (Buffy, Firefly) Speaks on the Future of TV February 7, 2006 9:40 am

From a recent contribution by Joss Whedon to tv.com regarding the future of television. First, on great series:

Lost has that one-of-a-kind alchemy that really can’t be copied. Therefore, look for the original series Misplaced, as well as Unfound, Not So Much with the Whereabouts and Just Pull Over and Ask!

And technology:

TiVo, iPods, streaming video — the way we watch TV is changing dramatically. It’s on our phones, in our cars — even projected on specialized eyeglasses. But don’t listen to the talk about having shows beamed directly into your brain. That’s science-fiction nonsense. Shows will be stored in the pancreas and will enter the brain through the bloodstream after being downloaded into your iHole.

He hints to the evolution of Firefly but for that you’ll have to read the article.
