    Anything Auto
    After two years of finding any way I could to not spend my ducats at ECS with their disproportionate shipping fees (e.g. $11 to ship a sticker or a single brake bleeder nipple) - they have finally started offering FREE shipping on qualifying orders (>$200). So new rear pads for Passat and...

    "Once upon a time in a village, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each. The villagers seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them. The man bought thousands at $10 and, as supply started to diminish...

    Anything Auto
    What would happen if Chrysler (now a privately-held company) purchased one or more of the nameplates from Ford's "Premier Automotive Group"? Jag is up for sale and the Blue Oval has indicated that Land Rover and Volvo could get the boot next. You want to P-chop an answer? Go ahead. You have...

  9. Should we do business with China?

    The Black Hole
    First it was pet foods, now it's medicines. Fortunately, this one hasn't hit here yet, but it's only a matter of time. If China wants to do business with Western nations, the West needs to lean all over the government there for...

    Classified Archive
    It’s no secret that the United States has a nursing shortage, one that promises to grow to alarming proportions. Too many nurses are retiring, and too few are entering the profession. To compound the problem, within the next 5 to 10 years, over 76 million Baby Boomers are scheduled to retire...
  14. Here is another example of getting screwed by big business

    The Black Hole
    Anyone living in CNY will be very familiar with this issue. Bascially a power company wants to build a large power line from Marcy NY to Orange County NY to give more and cheaper electricity to the suburbs of NYC. People in CNY will get no benefit from this project and will have to pay even...

  19. Another win for Big Business: Sup Court rules in favor of providers blocking ports...

    The Black Hole
    Read about the ruling. Previously Vonage won a case because a providor blocked their service, apparently this won't happen again. So it looks like my local cable internet monopoly now has the power and "right" to block my VoIP vonage phone service and offer theirs in its place. Alternatively...

    Anything Auto
    So I went to the airport to pick up a couple of business men for a meeting here tonight, and the first thing this guy says to me when he gets in my front seat is, "nice wheels!" Of course I was flattered and said "thank you." As I continued to talk to the other man in the back over the course...
