Slim pickings, because, you know, I got married last weekend. Then I spent four days with next to no internet in the mountains (fun!). Wedding and honeymoon pictures are in need of sorting, editing, and posting, but that ain’t happening super-quick. The wedding (awesome as it was!) was the segue into the important part: being married. I’m a bit wrapped up in the (fun) administrative aspects of that at the moment: getting names changed (Melissa Avery-Weir, y’all), insurance worked out, and finances merged.
Side note: ING is frigging obnoxious in changing accounts from individual to joint. If I’m signed in and editing my accounts, Greg has to sign in every single time I make him the joint account holder. Can I get, like, a cookie? A session variable? Can ING remember him for five damn minutes?
In the meantime:
- Sony admits utter PSN failure: your personal data has been stolen – Really, Sony? I didn't get an email about this until over two weeks later. You might also want to pony up for credit monitoring for your customers like MyAmeriCorps did when their system was compromised.
- Amazon’s $23,698,655.93 book about flies – When algorithmic pricing fails.
- Malcolm X’s Daughter Disputes Claims in New Bio on Father : NPR – She doesn't just dispute, she kind of flipped out about the angle of the interview, but wouldn't make any firm statements like, "He didn't interview the family." A little ways in, she starts rambling and gets grumpy. Weird, but an interesting listen.
