Head's up. Amazon Seller Central now will cancel your account if you have not sold anything in 30 days. If you have inventory stored with them, they will not send it back to you. When that inventory sells, you will get an email, but they keep the money since your account is closed.

Going to account page or shopping give the same error.

Clicking on the Amazon logo showed me:

You can all just get me Gift Certificates for Christmas.

You know, the American holiday of commercialism, which was put on the same day as a previous holiday of the same name. That old holiday was to worship a Jewish messiah named, roughly, Joshua, or Yesua, or Jesus. It's not on his birth or death day, but rather was placed on a date which coincided to an Egyption holiday worshiping another holiday.

And the reason for choosing same dates on each iteration is to subvert the believers of the previous holiday into the new religion.

So, happy commercialism day!

Um, yah, like anyone will buy me gift certs NOW.

My Favorite Socks.
Our Phone, with multple handsets, monitor-mode (for kids) and intercom mode (ie, calling another room). The speakerphone in each handset works well, and you can sync up phone books among all of the handsets.

The best dystopia novel I've ever read This Perfect Day, by Ira Levin. Beats out Brave New World, and the movie THX 1138.

Panasonic, Lumix Z1, our new cameras. All the normal features, a good grip, still pocketable (for me anyway), big screen, 640x480 movies 10x OPTICAL zoom, SD memory (large capacity available), built in memory (for a couple shots when you forgot to pull the memory out of your reader), and a replacable LiION Battery.

The BEST part is that, even with autofocus delays, in wierd lighting, I can turn on the camera and snap a shot in less than one second.

The minuses are small, but worth documenting. A) The thumb-wheel for mode setting is easy to freewheel. When I pull it from my pocket, I always have to re-set the mode. B) No add-on/replacable lenses (but the glass is big and clear so no need except for super-pro. C) The battery is a little small, and proprietary. If you use flash, the battery life is short. If you're in moderate or better light, then turn off the flash, and set LCD power-save mode and you're set. D) The power cable is proprietary, and it doesn't come with a DC cable. You have to use an external wall-wart with a socket for the battery (included, but inconvenient). E) The data cable is proprietary to USB. If you lose it, it's going to be expensive to replace. On the flip side, it uses SD memory, and my laptop has a built-in reader.

It seems like alot of text for the problems, but really, it doesn't affect me daily, so I'm happy.
