Some time ago when they first came out I bought an iPod shuffle (1G) it’s the large form factor version before they redesigned them smaller.  Sadly it went through the wash.  I had thought the battery was hosed since it still worked as a USB key.  Well as it turns out I was cleaning my office this weekend and found it in a drawer.  I reinstalled the firmware on it and low and behold it works now.  Go Apple!  Apparently it needed longer to dry out than I thought.

I’ve discussed before and anyone that’s engaged me in discussion about it knows I’ve fairly passionate about it.  Today I happened to find Bookmooch which appears to be the same thing except for books.  I’m probably more into keeping all my old books to reread and pass on to my kids, but the concept again is sound and would be a great way to introduce people to additional books, authors etc.

Now if only I can find the equivalent for video games I’ll be set.

Good old Internet hate…

While playing with Connor and God of War II fill the void until hockey season starts back again.  I was reminded today about  A whole site dedicated to the hate and ridicule of the Colorado Avalanche.  Personally I inherited my hate for Roy from Scott and me being a closet Brodeur fan doesn’t help.   But the site is still funny… especially this part.
