I have a .Mac account that I've used mainly for IM and for messing around with .Mac services. I rarely looked at email sent to that account -- when I did, I saw nothing but spam. Yesterday, after finding out that I'd missed an important email sent to that account, I took a good look, and I found some emails that weren't spam -- some of them very old. So to anyone who has emailed me at my .Mac address, I'm sorry for ignoring you, and I'll pay more attention to that address from now on. I guess I'm still new at this Internets thing.
The National Hockey League is getting ready to play another outdoor game. This one will be Buffalo vs. Pittsburgh at a football stadium in Buffalo on New Year's Day at 1:00 PM EST, and NBC will televise in the United States. 73,000 people are expected to attend. (Tony, this one's for you.)
The San Jose Sharks of the National Hockey League have several small shark-shaped airships, called Air Sharks, that fly around the arena during intermission. It's pretty cool to watch them go -- as my son says, it makes you feel like you're in an aquarium.
There are a bunch of other airships in the NHL, including a flying taco in Phoenix and a flying burrito in Dallas.
In Denver, I believe they have a flying Coors can. Of course.
