    FS: Gateway 500XL + 18" LCD monitor

    For sale, as I'm lusting after the new 17" Powerbook and I'm sick of sitting in my office to use the computer. $1000. Approximately comparable current model (5200S) goes for about $1600 w/ this config (not including software). I also have an IKEA rolling cabinet if you're interested...

    Do you tip a cleaning lady??

    I don't tip my cleaning people. They are independent and come every other week. They charge $60 for probably an hrs work. $30/hr is plenty. I gave them another $60 for the holidays.

    Separated - How to Reach Out to Kids?

    well, since I've never been in therapy, that's all I know. And if the parents have truly "botched their jobs" while they were actually in love, how in the holy hell would they do any better when they really can't stand each other ? Happily divorced parents are infinitely better for children than...

    Separated - How to Reach Out to Kids?

    Are SanDisk Compact Flash Cards Good?

    yes, they are reliable brand. The Ultra II and Extreme versions are very fast but I'm not sure you'd need it w/ your camera as it probably can't shoot faster than it can write to the card the way some DSLRs can (eg Nikon D70, Canon 20D, etc..)

    Fantasy Football 2004 Discussion and Advice

    I dunno, the only team Bulger hasn't shredded so far as been SF. He's done really well against better defenses as well: 264/2 vs. TB (#3) 295/1 vs. MIA (#1) 285/2 vs. NE (#11) NE doesn't need Brady to win. STL must get Bulger going if they're going to have a shot because Faulk can't take...

    Fantasy Football 2004 Discussion and Advice

    Bulger is pretty much a stud-do-not-bench call nowadays, in the same category as Manning, Culpepper and McNabb (my boy). My choice is either: Antonio Gates Derrick Mason Leaning towards Gates (we don't differentiate between TE & WR) as Mason isn't getting tons of yards and is having...
