Dood did you just say Mosaic?
I remember hearing quiet conversations about this mythical software at parties in SF way back in the day.

I was a GUI designer for mobile phones, needless to say I was broke in '91

Back on topic.


And in today's news:
Callaway’s 2014 Corvette Stingray Aerowagon concept gets tongues waggin’




I like it, but wouldn't spend an extra $15K on it.

I went to look at a friend of mine's dealership. I talked to him on the phone about the new vet and I told him it would be a better time to buy a used one. He said that they had some really nice used Vets being traded in too. I went to look.

The new vets are, IMHO, MUCH cooler

You don't want a used one. You, of all people, should know you can never really get all the baby batter wiped away. You will always know, deep down in the recesses of your mind, that somebody got a happy ending in the same seat your ass is resting. It'll ruin the experience.

Coincidence.

I saw one of those last weekend. Guy was out in front of one of his THREE huge garages full of cars. He was washing a baby blue one. It was beautiful and made me

willpower. pfft, overrated.

Look, sell off one of your yachts or maybe that crib in the Azores and buy that fekkin' Vette. You deserve it.

Plus, you would help perpetuate the stereotype folks hold about Corvette owners.

You've never struck me as someone who makes decisions based on what others may think. It's a great looking ride. Get one, drive the hell out of it. Just don't take 20-somethings out to dinner in one. You'd really be looked at as a creepy bastard. (You'd get secret high-fives from the husbands in the restaurant, though. )
