Here at another racetrack this weekend, this is great reading about the F1 spying scandal last year. The amount of money in racing is phenomenal — and anytime you have that much money sloshing around, nefarious sh$t is going to happen.
I’ve always wanted to have my own implementation of tinyurl — gocodes seems to fit the bill. we’ll see how it goes…

Some of my partners claim to be bicyclists but until they have one of these setups, I’m not buying it
Verbinski to direct BioShock film — I will run to see this. How many films are about Ayn-Rand-ish Objectivist paradises gone horribly wrong? On the bottom of the ocean? If you haven’t played the game, you should.

Or they can be ripped apart by private equity guys like Icahn — massive layoffs, milking their current traffic levels for cash flow, spinning off parts. This ...
OK if you are going to give money to disaster relief this week, might as well make sure you participate in the College Charity Bowl. OSU currently lagging but I have just done my part to fix that so stay tuned.
