So I received an email this morning when I turned on my computer that says someone bought me a gift from Amazon. I was like “Cool…good start to my day”. I opened the email and saw it was a gift bought on my baby registry at Amazon. Let me set something straight here: We don’t have any kids and are not expecting. This is very elaborate Spam as it had the appropriate email address and the headers were accurate plus it had my full name and my wife’s full name on it. Anyhoo I thought I’d include the image to share with you.
In lieu of ZipCar,

Car sharing is an evolving category of transportation, and we are working hard to pioneer the industry. We are constantly learning more about the best way to operate our service, and sometimes what we learn results in a tough decision.
In Southern California, we have decided to remove our vehicles from areas outside of the universities we serve (cars will remain at UCLA, USC, Pomona, UCSB, UCSD and UCI).
This was a difficult decision for us, and we understand it may present significant inconvenience for you. We apologize for that.
Reservations for all affected locations have been canceled and fully credited. Further, we have refunded annual membership fees for all members who paid an annual fee within the past nine months. Your refund will appear in your account automatically. If you have questions about your refund, please contact us at [email protected].
We realize that you recently activated your Zipcard. We’d like to encourage you to use it by placing a *new* $25 driving credit into your account. Hopefully, you’ll reserve a vehicle at one of our university locations in Southern California or in any other city where we provide service. If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected].
The team at Zipcar
I’m outraged by this decision of ZipCar to do this and encourage anyone with a FlexCar Acocunt/ZipCar Acocunt/ or anyone that was thinking about it to email: [email protected] letting them know how this is a gross misjudgment on their behalf.
Help support Car sharing and the environment.
I’m not one that typically follows celebrity news but today I found out about Heath Ledger’s death and it caught me off guard. He was really young and was in a couple of movies that I enjoy. It is sad to see celebrities die at a young age.
I redeemed some air miles last night for restaurant.com to get some gift certificates. I’m disappointed that I did because it isn’t a good deal at all. A normal user pays $10 for a $25 gift certificate. Sounds like a good deal until you read the fine print:
I know this deal hinders on the restaurant but when I go to buy a gift certificate, I assume that the money I get is good towards my meal without restrictions.
It surprises me that there are sites out there like this that can still make a profit.
It looks like Sun is making a huge move and acquiring MySQL. Here a portion from MySQL:
This kind of surprises me but at the same time I see it as a good strategic move on behalf of both parties.
I had the displeasure of trying out SharePoint the past couple of days to get an understanding of why people like it…I left the experience still having no idea why someone would choose SharePoint over a wiki, especially Deki Wiki. With Deki Wiki you can easily integrate dynamic web services along with easily add content and attachments. It is so intuitive whereas SharePoint requires someone who is Trained in it and a large $xx,000 license.
