24 hours of flickr

Those 365 days projects are way too much work and IMO pretty boring, but this sounds kindda cool. Flickr is encouraging its users to chronicle their day with photos on Sat 5/5/07. I’ll probably do it, just joined the group. Sounds like I have to pick only one photo for submission. Flickr: 24 hours of [...]

IRS cashes checks REALLY fast!

Verizon EVDO confirmed to be capped at 5GB / month

So if you have an EVDO data plan with VZW, here’s another way to get out of your Verizon contract – go over 5GB / month bandwidth limit. I use my EVDO a lot, my email is on about 18 hours a day (IMAP over SSL). I send a lot of full-res photos via pix [...]
