OEM ones go for more, though. If they're OEM and in good condition, they should go for around that price.

Well Chad, if you can get me a job offer, I can swing the Visa. Then it's just lashing a trailer to the bike, loading up the bimmer, then down I head.

As the leader of the invasion I have chosen San Diego as my HQ. I hear the weather there is lovely. 75 most of the year they say.

Lived there in college. It is lovely. Overall I prefer the bay area for living, but SD for vacation.

How do you find that stuff?

I would like to see San Francisco. Charleston and SF have been 1 and 2 on Conde Naste list as best cities in US for vacation for about 15 years now. The guys at work that get sent to SD love it though. Guess that's why I'd make HQ there. But since we have insurgents in the Bay Area maybe I'll switch.
Not gonna mess with Oakland though, hear they have more guns than any army there.

Oakland is wonderful...


...in the daytime.



I use Google Reader to aggregate a bunch of rss feeds, and this one popped up on BBC USA. I also read engadget, geekosystem, slashdot, etc. all on google reader. I get usually 200 posts per day, and mostly scroll through, reading the headlines. I was interested in reading more about the long cat that died, then I shared it with you folks!

SF is great, come out and see it. Oakland does actually have nice parts, but don't stick around the flatlands at any time of day.

Dude, I hit a wall at work and hardly do anything. I'm talking to my boss about it tomorrow. As a software engineer, I've automated so much of my busiwork that I mostly check progress bars on simulations. Every few weeks I talk about results to various execs and then it's back to the Intarwebs.

And by talking to your boss you mean asking for a raise. Right?



Edit: what do you develop? We are always looking for developers....
