Sorry for the wrong place to post but Google+ sucks. I wanted to say thank you for the video about flash steals and what you received. I enjoyed it and it helped me make my decision about buying or not.

Windows app we need. The tiles on screen represent all the stores, banks, etc. in your neighborhood. You get to arrange them to suit UR needs. Then when u go out, they're all that way for real! (Maybe Windows 21?)

That did it, John, thanks. Once I set the key to 1 in the DoThisInRealLife" registry, all the stores I use where really on my block. And all the banks, eye glass stores, and kids clothing stores were a miles away. You saved me hours of shopping time!

Former co-editor of MAD Magazine, Nick Meglin, stops by the new MAD offices. How Nick ever found our new address baffles everyone on the staff. We were all given strict instructions not to let Nick know our whereabouts, but we pretended to be glad to see him anyway! Actually Nick is the guy who got me started at MAD in a mad way. He's the one who sent back my original self-addressed, stamped envelope, always a sign of rejection. Inside was cardboard and a $100 check. (A lot in the early 60's) Scribbled on the cardboard: "Ha, ha, thought your script was rejected, but we bought it. Here's $100. Call us about writing more for us. Nick Meglin."

Warning: this will be a "gateway" kit. Once bitten by the homebrew bug, you will keep finding more equipment that you simply cannot live without. :op
