The most clear and present danger that is known to man at this time is the Karaoke machine. It is sinister in its design. For if there is any contrivance which might subtly be used to convince a man to capitulate that there are circumstances where he might desire to give up his rights under the First Amendment, I have yet to make it’s discovery.

Error 432 and 101

As you know, Windows XP has to be restored, from time-to-time, because, well… It blows. The update service at Microsoft adds stuff that seems to burden the system. If you install a program, it generally does not clean itself out of the registry. Shareware and freeware programs are especially sinister in this. And, of course, spyware and viruses are rampant.

But this time, it was not their fault. It was mine. I tried a development program on two computers and two got wrecked. I was able to continue using this one, so I did not worry too much about it.

Then came the day when I had to worry too much about it.

As soon as you are dead and rotten,
Either write things worthy reading,
Or do things worth the writing

Back when I was young and bold,
I spent my time chasing rainbows for gold,
Because of all the strife,
I never really had a life,
And now it’s a pity I’m too old.

ME Orgainization: Grant News

On June 10, 2010, in News Item, OPBs, Stuff, by Glen Davis

One of the projects that I have been supporting on the Pepsi Refresh project is the MEMission. That is difficult to do, because I am a Coke drinker. Pepsi, however, is doing a great thing with this grant project.

While supporting the Williams Youth Center Project with my vote, I ran across the MEMission—named after Mykel and Emily, founders of the organization—who is attempting to get five grand for their project. Their laudable goal is to inspire a love of literature by getting approximately 700 books a year to hand out to students on their birthday. Many of whom are homeless.

The latest news from their blog as of May 28, 2010 at 2:58 am is:

For the second month in a row it doesn’t look like we will be winning the grant. I believe we will be re-entered for June but I am not certain. I will keep you updated.

In the mean time if you have any donations please contact us! We will be more than happy to come by and pick them up or arrange a meeting place!

Emily and I have been really busy lately with the end of the year and finals. Even though we are really busy we will be more than happy to arrange something if you have donations. We apologize for not posting anything lately. Thank You for your support and understanding.

MEMission is on the web site in June, so if you are voting on the Pepsi Refresh project web site, you can vote for this project HERE. If not, go and sign up! It’s free and I haven’t received any spam email from them.

Whether they receive the grant, or not, you can always to go their blog and learn how to donate after.

Books constitute capital. A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years. It is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, it is their only capital.—Thomas Jefferson
